Tips To Get The Best Out Of Your 2020 Airpods

The provided instructions are ok to get you started, but just like Apple’s, they are not the most comprehensive. Therefore, we have put together this list of tips to help our customers get the best out of their 2020 Airpods. 

Basics

  • Not sure which pod goes in which ear?  They have L and R printed on the stems to help. :o)
  • Make sure the AirPods are next to your device when trying to pair them together.
  • Your AirPods can only be connected (paired) to once device at a time.  Each time you take the pods out of their charging case, they will automatically reconnect to the last paired device if possible.  
  • This is brilliant if only using one device.  However, if you want to connect to a different device (such as laptop or watch), you are best turning Bluetooth off on your original device (so Airpods can’t automatically connect) and then pair again to the new device with Bluetooth on.
  • Once music is running you can pause it simply by taking one pod out of your ear.  Replace in-ear to automatically start the music again.
  • You can connect with just one pod if so desired.

Battery Levels

  • Different devices will drain the Airpod’s battery at different rates.  
  • Furthermore, the higher the volume, the more the batteries are depleted.
  • Unfortunately, as stated on our product page, the battery percentages displayed are not accurate.  They do provide a general idea of remaining battery levels but should not be trusted.  
  • This is true of all Airpod clones that have the pop-up battery window.  It seems to be the last thing that chip manufacturers have not been able to successfully implement.
To be clear, it does not affect the actual battery performance, which should last a few hours before needing to go back in the case for a quick charge.  The charging case should be good for a few days before it will need charging again.

Music Preferences

Whilst the standard Equaliser settings are fine for most people, some may prefer to adjust them to cater for their personal musical preferences e.g. less base, more vocals, etc.
These settings can usually be adjusted from within your music app or streaming service. For example, on IOS, you can go to “Settings” >> “Music” >> “EQ” to experiment with different sound variations.
The touch sensors do take a little getting used to if you have not used them before.  Our recommendation is to try and handle the pods by their stems, so as to avoid accidentally pressing the touch sensors on the top of the stem.  Just pop them back in the case to turn them off.

Name & Control Settings

You can adjust the settings for the touch controls on your phone by going to Bluetooth settings and tapping the info icon on the "Airpods” connection.  Here you can adjust the controls to suit you.  You can also adjust the name here too!

For example it may be best to turn off the in-ear sensors that control playback (remove to pause, replace to play) if they are causing playback to stop unnecessarily.

Resetting

If your Airpods get confused for any reason, or stop behaving as you would expect, you can easily reset them which usually resolves the issue.
Reset instructions, assuming you are pairing to a phone...
1. Delete all the Airpods records on the phones bluetooth (forget device)
2. Switch off your phone's Bluetooth
3. With the lid open and with the pods inside, press the case button for 5-10 seconds, wait for white light to stop flashing and go out
4. Close the case and leave for around 1 minute
5. Now you can begin pairing again.  You may need to repeat this a few times if it does not work first time.

Hopefully that answers any questions you may have on our 2020 Airpod Alternatives.  If there is anything else you wish to know please feel to post a comment below or contact us at CustomerCare@WirelessGadgets.co.uk
