How to Change AirPods Automatic Ear Detection Settings

Whenever you put your AirPods in your ears, the audio that is currently playing on the devices to which your AirPods are connected (such your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or other device) is instantly transferred to the AirPods. This is the default setting. This is both clever and convenient, but it may not be something you want to happen. When you place your AirPods in your ears, the Automatic Ear Detection slider should be set to off/white. This will prevent your AirPods from immediately picking up any audio that is currently playing.

TIPS: Have you ever noticed that when you pull your AirPods out of your ears, the audio stops playing on them? If you turn off this feature, audio will continue to play even if you don’t have your ears in your ears.

How to Change AirPods Microphone Settings

Both AirPods contain a microphone in the bottom that picks up your voice while you’re on a phone conversation or utilizing the Siri virtual assistant. By default, any AirPod serves as the microphone, which means you may wear either one in your ear and it would still function properly. You may also select to have only one AirPod’s microphone operate all of the time, while the other does not, by following the instructions below:

1. In the AirPods settings page, select Microphone from the drop-down menu.

2. Automatically Switch AirPods is the default setting, which means that both AirPods are used at the same time. You may also select Always Left AirPod or Always Right AirPod from the drop-down menu.
