Live Listen will effectively turn your AirPods

into a hearing aid

Live Listen will effectively turn your AirPods into a hearing aid. The feature is designed to address a phenomenon called “hidden hearing loss” when you simply can’t hear what someone says because it’s too loud in your environment. For instance, if you’re at a party and music’s playing and you can’t hear your friends, AirPods will give you a boost.

An accessibility feature called “Live listen” lets you turn your Airpods into a partial hearing aid.
