I’ve been able to get hey Siri to start listening by pressing the button on the headset and playing something. I then say “hey Siri” over the music and it works.

iPhone Max 13.2 w/AirPod pro.

that doesnt work for me at all, it sometimes works but often does not and when it doesnt nothing gets it to work at all. hey siri works fine when my airpod pros arent connected or with my powerbeats pro

Out of curiosity, do you have “Type to Siri” turned on? I had an issue with replying to messages that came in through “Announce With Siri” and toggling off “Type to Siri” fixed it.

its off, and its not my announce message thats bugged its the hey siri command that is broken when my airpod pros are connected, the command works fine with my powerbeats pro and when my airpods arent connected. worked fine with my old airpds gen 2 when i had them to. starting to wonder if i got a bad pair of airpods

Gotchya. Was just curious if there may be some correlation.
Take it to Apple. I’ve had to replace two pairs of AirPod 2’s and one charging case in under a year. Frustrating!

Yeah, that happens unfortunately. The wireless charging case on my AirPod Gen 2’s just stopped working one day, out of nowhere. How is the microphone with phone calls? Interesting issue since AirPods themselves don’t process “Hey Siri.” It goes through the phone and you’re saying it works fine with your phone and the PowerBeats.

Might be an issue with that right pod. In the settings, do you have the mic set to use the left airpod only? You can set it to automatic...
