My iPhone earpods are suddenly very quiet

They are quiet on my PC too I think.

Are they dead or something?


I've had them since the iPhone 5 launch.

Sounds like bad headphones, but try a different pair to be sure.

Check other headphones. If they are all as quiet, you may have a very serious inner ear problem, bilaterally.

This means they are dying, I've experienced this with every pair of earbuds by Apple I have ever had ( like 4 or 5 )

Trust me its ear wax. Just clean out your headphones. Also, don't mind the comments by people asking if you clean your ears. The design of these ear pods make it impossible to avoid ear wax build up over time.
