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.
