  • Check for debris, damage, or loose connections
  1. Check for debris in the headphone port on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
  2. Check your headphone cable, connector, remote, and earbuds for damage, like wear or breakage.
  3. Look for debris on the meshes in each earbud. To remove debris, gently brush all openings with a small, soft-bristled brush that’s clean and dry.
  4. Firmly plug your headphones back in. If your iOS device has a case, remove the case to get a firm connection.
  • If you can’t hear any sound or if only one side of your headphones works
  1. Adjust the volume with the volume buttons on your iOS device or use the Volume slider in Control Center.
  2. To see if you need a replacement, try a second pair of headphones. If the second pair works, contact the manufacturer of the initial pair and ask if you need a replacement. If the second pair doesn’t work, contact Apple Support.
  • If your microphone doesn’t work
  1. Make sure that your headphones have a built-in microphone.
  2. Check your microphone for blockage, like debris, lint, or plastic packaging.
  3. To see if you need a replacement, try a second pair of headphones. If the second pair works, contact the manufacturer of the initial pair and ask if you need a replacement. If the second pair doesn’t work, contact Apple Support.

Do you have one of these issues?

  • After you plug any headphones into your iOS device, sound plays from your device’s speakers instead of the headphones.
  • You unplug your headphones, but when you adjust volume on your iOS device, you still see a Headphones volume indicator.

If so, take your device to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for inspection. Don’t have a nearby service location? Contact Apple Support.
