The Xiaomi headset catalog is incredibly extensive. From the cheapest Redmi to the top of the range of Xiaomi itself, we have a lot of options to choose fromat a lot of different prices.
Despite this, spending more money does not avoid certain problems, since technology is unpredictable. It is possible that you have experienced some other failure with your Xiaomi or Redmi headphones, and if in particular you hear one earphone more than the other, we will help you find the solution.
Check the battery of the headphones
When one earphone is heard more than the other, the first thing that comes to mind is the battery level. Remember that not only the headphones themselves have their battery, but also the charging caseso it’s important to have both loaded.
When we take them out of the case, we always extract one before than the other, and it is possible that the first one has a lower battery level and you start to hear less. Fortunately, both the operating system itself and the Xiaomi Earbuds app they will give us all the information related to the battery.
Check the balance
Although strange, you may have misbalanced your headphones Xiaomi. The balance is basically the amount of sound that goes to the left or right earphone. Within the settings, we can change the change, and for this we must do the following:
Go to Settings > Additional settings > Accessibility
Swipe left twice or tap on ‘Hearing’
- You will see a bar with the balance. If you have it slid to one side or the other, one of your headphones will be heard more. Leave the bar in the middle to balance it
Turn off sound effects
Another reason why we may hear one earphone more than the other is because we have activated some audio setting with surround sound. Features like Dolby Atmos can interfere with ‘correct’ listening.
For review (or disable) these settings, you must follow these steps:
Settings > Sound and vibration
Within these settings, at the bottom, you will see ‘Sound effects’. There you will find different functions such as Dolby Atmos, which creates surround sound that can make you hear one earbud more than the other. Disable these types of features if you want to go back to the traditional method.
These are some of the solutions to the problem of one earphone being heard more than another. However, it can also be due to problems with the connection, software or even a factory defect. We recommend that, if none of these options has worked for you, you reset your headphones and, if it has not been solved, contact Xiaomi technical service.
