macOS Sequoia Brings ‘Headphone Accommodations’ for AirPods

Apple’s macOS Sequoia offers additional accessibility settings for use with AirPods, called “headphone accommodations.” The feature provides more control over playback, users choose precisely how incoming audio can sound based on different control options.

Apple added headphone accommodations to iOS 14 in 2020.

As first discovered by AppleInsider, the menu can be found in “System Settings” -> “Accessibility” -> “Audio” -> “Headphone Accommodations“. Users can manually tweak each setting or use a handy setup genie to find the right audio playback settings.

Headphone accommodations are available when connecting:

  • AirPods Pro¬†1 & 2
  • AirPods 2 & 3
  • AirPods Max
  • Apple EarPods
  • Powerbeats
  • Powerbeats Pro
  • Beats Solo Pro
  • Beats Fit Pro

Users can choose different tone balances, audio boost levels, and how Transparency Mode amplifies sound. An option to input the results of an audiogram is also available for fine-tuned personalization.

macOS Sequoia is currently available to developers. The second Sequoia beta was released earlier this week. Sequoia is likely to be available as a public beta in July. The new operating season is likely to be released to the wide-ranging public somewhere around September.
