    Issue

    When playing content from the soundbar or AV receiver through the Apple® AirPods, the volume level is set to the maximum and cannot be adjusted.

    Solution

    Apple AirPods cannot be used with products equipped with the AVRCP (A/V Remote Control Profile) Bluetooth® profile Ver. 1.4 or lower. Since the home audio device uses the Blutooth profile ver 1.4, it is not recommend for use with Apple AirPods. We recommend using Blutooth headphones that support this Bluetooth profile.
