Best EQ Settings for Apple AirPods

As your music shuffles, you will notice that every song produces a different sound based on the overall recording quality and original intent. To achieve the best overall sound quality, without getting lost searching through the Apple settings, we recommend sampling the different EQ settings provided by apple that produce the best sound for YOU! Currently, I have my EQ set to jazz, and the results greatly improve the vocal clarity and provide a modest amount of surround sound bass.

Based on your own preferences, you may want to choose a setting with more depth or less bass. Play around and test different songs and settings. Over time you will find the one that fits your best needs and desires.

Wireless. Effortless. Magical.

Just take them out and they’re ready to use with all your devices. Put them in your ears and they connect instantly. Speak into them and your voice sounds clear. Arguably one of the easiest, most sleek, straight forward, wireless headphones on the market. AirPods provide rich, high-quality AAC audio.

Freequently Asked Questions

How Do I reset my AirPods?

With the AirPods inserted in the case, open the lid open, press and hold the button on the back of the case for 15 seconds, or until you see the status light flashing amber.

Why do I sound far away with AirPods?

A common cause of muffled sound in your AirPods is most likely caused from dirty speakers. Since they are directly inserted your ear canal, earwax and other material can build up over time, which can reduce the sound quality.
