Your top three Air-Pods noise-cancelling options. This is a common issue caused by ear wax.
I recently had a problem with my AirPods (generation 2). I noticed that my right AirPod is quieter than my left while using them. Because of this imbalance, the sound appears to be coming from the left side of my head rather than the centre.
A quick internet search revealed that this is a common ear wax problem. You can solve this problem by attempting one of the solutions listed below.
I’ve also made a YouTube video to make it easier for you to follow along.
#1 — Make sure your Air-Pods are clean.
Wipe your AirPods clean with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth that has been slightly dampened with fresh water. To clean, avoid using sharp objects or abrasive materials. Please follow the detailed instructions at Cleaning your AirPods and EarPods
While researching this topic, I came across a tip that was not mentioned in the previous articles: try sucking the speaker on your AirPods. This will remove the earwax. It’s disgusting, but it’s worked for a lot of people.
Cleaning brushes and hearing aid cleaning kits can be purchased to assist you with the cleaning. Remember that ear wax is a common cause of this problem, and it is nothing new to people who use hearing aids. As a result, use one of their cleaning solutions.
#2 — Reboot your Air-Pods.

#3 — Contact Apple Support to replace your Air-Pods.
If your AirPods are still under warranty, contact Apple support to have them replaced. They can either send you a replacement by mail or send you to the nearest Apple store.
Contacting Apple support would be another option. I called Apple’s customer service. The customer service representative asked me a few questions, did some troubleshooting, and then offered to replace my AirPods.
Wow! It’s incredible that Apple does that. My AirPods are still covered by a one-year warranty.
With the help of my AirPods serial number, an Apple support representative was able to confirm the warranty. Your AirPods serial number can be found in your iPhone settings (Settings General About AirPods). Your AirPods must be paired.
#4 — Purchase a new Air-Pod as a bonus.
If your AirPods are worn out, you can replace them with new ones. The new AirPods Pro are $230, and the original AirPods are $130.
Keep a pair of cheap earphones on hand for use in stressful situations. You could try a few high-quality headphones for under $25 on Amazon.
