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 change the volume on the iPhone, iPad or with the corresponding buttons 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 also known from navigation devices or navigation apps. But to be honest, I didn't come up with it and had to look it up at Apple myself.

Apple support document explains how to adjust the Siri volume

Obviously there was an increased support volume at Apple, now that the new AirPods were released and other people besides me had the feeling that Siri was not speaking appropriately loudly. For this reason Apple has a support document called "How to change Siri volume"published that explains how to adjust the volume of the voice assistant without changing the volume of the music being played.

    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 also have to be connected so that the settings have to be changed. Now I finally understand Siri too." with the Apple Watch and AirPods.
