The small headphones from Apple are popular with many users of iPhone, iPad and Co. long since become standard equipment. They offer great sound and are known for their stable connection with the player. It is all the more annoying when Apple AirPods are defective and can no longer be used.
Today we want to give you a few tips on how to use it. How can you prevent your Apple AirPods Pro from becoming defective? We answer whether you can repair Apple AirPods. And last but not least, we show you how you can order replacements if your Apple AirPods should be defective.
How you treat your AirPods is important
Unfortunately, a defect after intensive use can never be completely ruled out. But you can still do something to make it as unlikely as possible. Since these are sensitive electronic devices, you should always handle them with care. This also means that you always keep them in the Charging Case. This protects them from dirt from the environment.
You should also regularly carry out a thorough and careful cleaning. You will primarily use a soft microfiber cloth for this. Wipe it gently over all surfaces. You can use a cotton swab to clean the speaker area. However, be careful not to dent the speaker cover.
In the case of stubborn dirt, you can rub some alcohol on the cotton swab or give the microfiber cloth. But keep in mind that no liquid should get into the headphones.
What to do if Apple AirPods Pro are broken?
If you have found that your Apple AirPods Pro are defective, then you should first go through the following steps. This way you can make sure that the headphones are really broken and that the problem is not somewhere else.
- Check whether the player, which is connected to your AirPods via Bluetooth, is nearby and interference with the transmission can be ruled out.
- Check the operating system of your iPhone or iPad. Transmission errors can only be ruled out if the current version of the operating system is installed.
- Use different sources for music or speech. In rare cases, a single app can trigger issues. Therefore, test with several applications whether your AirPods are faulty.
If you still cannot hear the sound in the usual quality after testing the three steps above, then unfortunately your Apple AirPods are defective. We will now tell you what you can do in this case.
Repair Apple AirPods
Unfortunately, Apple's small headphones cannot be easily repaired. Repairs that are offered for the manufacturer's larger players are not possible due to the size of the AirPods. Apart from problems during the warranty period, it therefore makes no sense to contact Apple Support about an AirPods defect.
You should also refrain from repairing the Apple AirPods yourself. The headphones are not intended to be opened, nor are individual components bought as original spare parts. With a very high probability, trying to repair Apple AirPods will not be successful.
Replace a defective AirPods
Since a repair is not possible, you have to buy a replacement if your Apple AirPods are defective. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not offer the purchase of a single AirPods. You are left with three different options. On the one hand, you can buy a new set of AirPods. You then have all new parts and also get a replacement if an Apple AirPods Pro charging case is defective. However, this is very expensive and you acquire significantly more parts than you actually need. Therefore, buying a new set is not recommended from both an ecological and economic point of view.
To save money and protect the environment, you can look for used AirPods if your headphones are broken. However, you don't know how the previous owner treated the devices. If in doubt, you will have the same problem shortly after purchasing the used headphones because the Apple AirPods Pro are defective again.
The third way to buy replacements is to order from a specialized retailer like OneEarPod. There you can get original AirPods as individual parts. You can save a lot of money and don't have to forgo the manufacturer's warranty.
