    Default Why are apple earbuds louder on left sometimes?

    So my apple earbuds seem nice and loud on the left side but not so loud on the right. I checked in accessibility but that was set in the middle. My girlfriend said she had the same problem with the headphones so I know it's not just me. My best friends have no problem though. I've read up and it seems common is there some reason for this and is there a fix?

    Maybe you should get checked for ear wax

    I have not had this issue with my iPod, iPad, or my last two iPhones. I have had other earphones go bad in the past, one ear will have intermittent low volume, then intermittent no audio on one side, then one side just dies. Just stress on the wire.

    It's not just Apple earbuds/pods, all stereo speakers are a little louder out of the left speaker, they also have more sound in general being pushed through them.
