Alternatively, you can also connect Bluetooth earbuds like the Apple AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max.

How to Turn Up Volume on AirPods Using Siri
If the above solution did not solve the problem, link your AirPods with an Apple device, adjust the volume, and pair it with your Peloton. You can use Siri to control your AirPods volume level.
To increase the audio volume using Siri on first-generation AirPods:
- Double-tap the side of the AirPods.
- First say, “Hey, Siri,”
- Then say something like, “increase volume.”
To adjust the audio volume on second-generation or later AirPods, including AirPod Pro:
- You can say, “Hey, Siri,”
- Then “turn up the volume,” or ask Siri to adjust the volume by a percentage.
When you ask Siri to turn up the volume, she will do it in 12% increments. You can also tell Siri to turn up the volume by a certain percentage or to a certain percentage. You can say, “Hey, Siri, turn up the volume by 50%,” or “Hey, Siri, turn up the volume to 90%.”
When asking Siri to increase the volume by a certain percentage, be aware that the volume can become uncomfortably loud. You may also try cleaning your AirPods if these solutions don’t make it loud enough for you.
How to Make Your Airpods Louder
You may need to calibrate your AirPods with your iPhone to balance the volume levels.
- Place your AirPods in your ears and play music.
- Turn the volume completely down on your iPhone using the volume buttons.
