Using AirPods' Volume Limiter to Protect Your Hearing

Using AirPods’ Volume Limiter to Protect Your Hearing

With the rise in popularity of AirPods, there has been growing concern about the potential for hearing loss associated with their use. Earbuds like AirPods are particularly vulnerable to hearing loss as they lack good sound blocking, which means that listeners often have to increase the volume to hear their content over ambient noise. Non-pro AirPods are especially vulnerable due to their poor passive sound isolation. Even AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, with active noise cancellation, are not immune to this risk.
