There are many factors that can determine sound quality. Many factors such as the processing and the mastering of recordings can amplify and reduce the sounds picked up by the microphones which can determine the quality of what you are listening to. Sometimes it isn’t the recording, but the environment in which you are listening to your music or television show. Loud rooms, constant chatter, headphones that aren’t made with the best quality may also affect the quality of the sound.
Many are curious as to whether or not Bluetooth headphones reduce the quality of your audio, and to an extent, it does. With the removal of wires, the information that would typically be sent through wires now gets sent through the air, making for lower-resolution audio. However, with more advanced technology, it is upgrading the sounds so your Bluetooth headphones can allow more data to pass to upgrade your sound quality.
There are usually quick and easy solutions to unmuffle your AirPods. As they are constantly in our ears, earwax and other materials can create a block over the speaker and that can muffle the sound. Ensuring that you have a strong Bluetooth connection as well will help fix the muffled sound coming out of your earphones. Sometimes your AirPods need to be reset on your device as well, or the device needs an update so it is recommended that you check your phone for iOS updates.
