In the “Audio/Visual” accessibility setting, there’s a new option called “Headphone Accommodations.” When you toggle this on, you get a chance to fine-tune how you hear things in your headphones. And if you have a set of AirPods Pro, it works in conjunction with Transparency mode.
You can change the audio from a balanced tone to one optimized for higher frequency sounds or vocals in the middle frequencies. There’s also a slider to adjust how soft sounds are boosted, from slight to moderate to strong. And you can hear these changes as you make them in real-time using the “Play Sample” button. Best of all, you can choose to have these settings apply to media (music, movies, podcasts, etc.) or phone calls or both.
If you own a pair of AirPods, AirPods Pro, or Beats, there’s another option for Headphone Accommodations that lets you create a “Custom Audio Setup.” It will walk you through different sounds
One of the best features of Headphone Accommodations is available to select Airpods and Beats headphones. When connected, you can create a custom audio setup that best suits your hearing. AirPods Pro also supports Transparency mode, which improves the audibility of quieter voice around you.
