Inspecting for Damage or Obstructions

When experiencing no sound while your AirPods are connected to Windows 11, the first step is to inspect for any damage or obstructions that may be causing the issue. Check the AirPods for any visible damage such as cracks or dents, and ensure that the speaker mesh is clear of any debris or blockages.

If there is visible damage or debris, carefully clean the AirPods using a soft-bristled brush or microfiber cloth to remove any obstructions. Be gentle to avoid causing further damage to the device.

Next, inspect the AirPods case and charging ports for any debris or damage that may be affecting the connection or sound output. Use a toothbrush or antistatic agent to clean the charging ports and remove any debris that may be causing connectivity issues.

If the issue persists, consider checking for any firmware updates for your AirPods or Windows 11 device. Updating the firmware can often resolve compatibility issues and improve overall performance.

By thoroughly inspecting for damage or obstructions and ensuring that your devices are up to date, you can troubleshoot and potentially resolve the issue of no sound when your AirPods are connected to Windows 11.
