It is not recommended to use a high volume level in the headphones when listening to music, but if you still want to hear the sound louder on AirPods, in this tutorial you will learn how you can do this.

How to make the sound louder on AirPods
If you are a fan Apple, you know that devices like Apple Watch, iPhone, are equipped with sensors and applications that aim to physically protect the user and improve the quality of life. From accident detection sensors (Crash Detection, Fall Detection) and up to pulse and sound level detection.
If you own wireless audio headphones AirPods, you should know that the maximum sound level supported by them is set at 100 dB. That is, a sound of the same intensity as that produced by an ambulance siren. However, when you have the volume AirPods at maximum, it is very possible that the actual volume will be well below 100 dB. That's because Apple integrated for AirPods a system of Headphone Safety by which the maximum value of the sound intensity is established.
So, if you want to make the sound louder on AirPods, you will need to change the maximum level allowed.
1. Chicken AirPods in the ears, then go to: “Settings” → “Sounds & Haptics” → “Headphone Safety”.
2. Disable the option "Reduce Loud Sounds” or adjust the maximum sound level in the horizontal bar, up to 100dB.
After you disable this option, make sure that the volume AirPods is maximized in "Control Center".
It is very possible that once this option is disabled, some sounds will no longer be heard very clearly and distortions will appear. It is not recommended to disable “Headphone Safety” than for voice calls when you are in crowded environments.
