    TLDR: If your AirPods won't go to max volume try cycling Bluetooth.

    My AirPods have been great straight from the first day: no battery issues, fit my ears great, love them!

    One thing I kept seeing is people saying the volume is too low... but it was hard for me to believe because I wasn't even able to get my AirPods up above ~75% without hurting my ears... until today.

    Yesterday my AirPods and case ran completely out of battery (hadn't charged them in 4 days or so with quite a lot of usage). I plugged them in overnight to charge.

    This morning I got up and grabbed them for my workout. Stuck them in my ears and headed to the gym.

    When I got to the gym I noticed the volume was a little low for my music. I went to turn it up... and even after turning it ALL the way up the volume was still not loud! No idea what had happened... just, overnight they were no longer loud enough.

    I messed around with them for a minute, pausing, playing, taking them in and out of my ears, etc, but nothing fixed it (Note: I didn't have the case with me so I didn't try putting them in the case).

    Finally I tried cycling Bluetooth: turning it off and then back on then waiting for the AirPods to reconnect... and it worked! AirPods were back at full volume.

    So: if you ever find that the AirPods aren't loud enough for you: try cycling Bluetooth!

    This is the first glitch I've had with the AirPods... let's hope it's the last! ;-)

    I live in an apartment... I was just going to the gym downstairs. Why take it with me while I workout? It's just one more thing to keep track of.

    However, I do take it with me everyday when I leave the house. My AirPods have taken up permanent residence in the front right pocket of my pants :)
