Try this:


Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Reduce Loud Sounds - If Allow is checked, change it to Don't Allow.


Then go to Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Headphone Safety and make the adjustment there which was missing

I have followed your steps but I don’t have that option in Headphone Safety nor that option in Health. I’ve just deleted all data in the hearing section of Health to see if that helps. I’m on an iPhone 11.

If you couldn't find it under health app, then I am surprised.


Please check under these


Try --> Settings > Music > [If not found]


Try this


Type Headphone in the search box of settings and see the option available. See the pic below

I never heard about any Android users complaining about this. Can you point me to the relevant setting on Android with a screenshot? This is not a EU regulation. It's a WHO "recommendation". It was never enacted into law. EU restriction ALLOWS people to change their decibels from 85 to 100 if they *choose* to.
