Change Siri volume without editing music volume

I've been using the AirPods 2 for some time and I'm quite excited about the small earplugs - which you might also find mine AirPods 2 review can be found. Unfortunately, one thing has been bothering me for weeks that I was only able to get to the bottom of today: While the music in the AirPods is played at the set volume, Siri himself mumbles very quietly to himself.

When I set up a phone call in the moving car, I usually don't even hear who Siri has chosen to speak to. And there may be differences between my wish and the selection of Siri. That's why it's important to hear the audio feedback from Siri saying who's on the line.

Instructions: Adjust Siri volume

How it works is actually explained very simply: You get Siri to say a little something (for example with "Hey Siri! Tell me a joke!") and then use the corresponding buttons to change the volume on the iPhone, iPad or Mac. If you press the buttons while Siri is speaking, you change the volume of Siri and not that of the music.

This “technology” is certainly also known from navigation devices or navigation apps. To be honest, I didn't think of it and had to look it up myself at Apple.

Apple support document explains how to adjust the Siri volume

Apparently there has been an increased level of support at Apple now that the new AirPods have come out and other people besides me have felt that Siri is not speaking appropriately loud. For this reason, Apple has a support document entitled “How to change Siri volume” published, which explains how to adjust the volume of the voice assistant without changing the volume of the music playback.

  1. Small addition to the AirPods on the Apple Watch: Just like with the iPhone, you have to differentiate between “connected” and “unconnected”. So with the Apple Watch, the AirPods must also be connected so that the settings have to be changed. Now I finally understand Siri with the Apple Watch and the AirPods.
