    I'm listening to YouTube on my MBP which is paired with my AirPods. I've the volume at Max (both YouTube and on the Mac), but the volume isn't loud enough. I know the AirPods can push more volume, so I did a little investigation. (Warning, if you try this, do not have your Mac volume at 100% - it can get VERY LOUD!)

    Here's what I did:
    1) Open iTunes and play a song.

    2) While the song is playing, go into the Sound Settings, Selecting the Output Tab, the AirPods are selected and the volume = 50%.

    3) Now, clicking on the Input tab, the volume literally doubles (and the quality is muffled a bit).

    4) Click back to the Output tab. The volume decreases and quality is improved?

    Why is this and where can I bump up the volume??? I don't know if this happens with directly wired earbuds, but I find this very curious.

    I don't know, but since you've discovered what could be a bug, you might as well report it to Apple via their feedback option.

    Strange. Sounds like a bug. That said, I’ve not had any volume issues with my AirPods. Not even during my runs outside with traffic noise or on a treadmill with all of the motor noise.
