If you have a pair of headphones and Siri is always too loud, you might want to look into how to control Siri’s volume. If you don’t want your phone’s volume to change, you can use a volume control app for headphones. However, there are some limitations to the volume control app for headphones. For example, you can’t change the volume by a few percentages or even move it a few levels. If you’re using AirPods or a similar device, you can adjust the volume with the built-in volume control on the AirPods.
Siri’s volume is dependent on the output device being used
If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you’ve probably noticed that Siri’s volume varies from time to time. The volume you select will change a few minutes or even hours after you speak the command. This may be caused by a bug, or it could simply be that Siri is adjusting the volume depending on the ambient noise around you. Regardless of the reason, Apple has yet to fix this issue.
In addition to being dependent on the output device, Siri’s volume is also affected by the volume of other applications on the phone. While it’s possible to adjust the volume while Siri is speaking, there’s no way to adjust it offline. John Ruchak pointed out that this issue has to do with the output device being used.
Siri’s voice can’t change a few percentages or move a level
Siri is a popular virtual assistant that responds well to complicated volume commands. For example, you can ask Siri to lower the volume by a certain percentage or increase the volume by 40%. However, if you are using headphones to listen to music, you can’t use Siri to change these levels. You can use the volume slider on your headphones to adjust the volume, or press the lock button to activate Siri.
In addition to controlling the volume using your headphones, you can also change the volume with Siri’s voice. The volume control is completely separate from the volume settings on your iPhone. Depending on the volume of the music or video you’re listening to, Siri may be distorted. However, you can change the volume using the Media/Ringer settings in iOS.
Siri keeps coming on by itself
You may have found that Siri keeps coming on by itself when you have headphones plugged in and you’re not using it. If this happens to you, then you’re likely using your headphones incorrectly. In such a case, it’s essential to remove the headphones and try again. If that doesn’t work, you may want to check your headphone cable for damage. If you find any, replace them. If this doesn’t work, you can also try running a Terminal command to force Siri to appear.
If you’ve tried turning off and on the headphones, you may be unable to activate Siri. In this case, it’s imperative to make sure that the headphones are clean and the headphone jack is correctly plugged in. If the problem still persists, you might want to try restarting the headphones or changing the settings on your headphones. Alternatively, you may want to try investing in a new pair of headphones and see if that helps.
AirPods have a built-in volume control
The built-in volume control on Siri on AirPods allows you to control the volume of the headphones. This comes in handy when you are in a noisy place and need to adjust the volume, but don’t have your phone or AirPods nearby. It is also handy when you’re waiting in a public train station, where you may not be able to turn up the volume on your phone.
You can adjust the volume using the built-in volume control or by pressing the button on your AirPods’ case. You can even switch off the EQ feature entirely and enjoy your music at its maximum volume. However, you should keep in mind that the maximum safe level of listening to audio is 85 decibels.
You can turn down the volume of Siri
If you use headphones, you may want to turn down the volume of Siri when it starts talking to you. Changing the volume of Siri depends on the volume settings in the audio device and the volume settings for other applications. You can use the volume sliders on your headphones to turn down the volume of Siri. The volume control for Siri is also available in Control Center on the iPhone. In iOS 7, Siri was added to the Control Center, which lets users control the volume of Siri.
You can also adjust the volume of Siri on your Mac by going to the System Preferences menu and choosing the Sound icon. On the Sound menu, tap on the slider that allows you to change the volume level of your music. You can also use the volume keys on your headphones to adjust the volume.
You can disable Reduce Loud Sounds in headphones
If you want to use Siri with headphones but don’t want to disturb other people with shrill voices, you can disable Reduce Loud Sounds in Siri’s settings. By default, this feature applies to Apple headphones and AirPods Pro. However, you can also enable this feature on other headphones and devices. To do so, open the Settings app and toggle Reduce Loud Sounds. Then, adjust the decibel level accordingly.
Alternatively, you can enable Headphone Safety. This feature warns you when your headphones have reached their maximum volume for seven days, and suggests you reduce the volume. By default, the feature automatically lowers volume. However, you can turn off this feature if you want to listen to loud music with headphones. You can see the maximum volume of the headphones you have connected to your iPhone in the slider.
