Question: Right earbud is extremely quiet

I have a pair of Earbuds that are maybe a year old. No significant damage that i’m aware of. I took them out if my pack for the first time in a few months and the right side is barely audible.

Hello JackSpangenberg,

Thanks for asking the Apple Support Communities for help with your Apple EarPods. I have two things to check.

First is this help article: If you hear low or muffled sound from your Apple EarPods

The next is to ensure your Audio balance is set properly. This article has the info and states: iPhone User Guide Mono audio and balance

Adjust the balance. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility, then drag the Left Right Stereo Balance slider.

Thanks and have a wonderful evening.
