I just cleaned my AirPods with a tooth brush tonight, hoping to get all the gunk out. The left one was sounding weak, but after cleaning it, it sounds better. However, when I tried to activate Siri while using that AirPod, the mike didn't appear to work/Siri didn't hear me. Before the cleaning, however, she understood me through this pod just fine. I've had these second generation AirPods for about a year now, and they were a couple hundred dollars. The right mike works fine, but I'm a user who's blind so hope I didn't do anything wrong. Has anyone had this problem before, and how can I tell whether the mike's working without activating Siri all the time. The connection sound the AirPods play when in my ears is also stronger than it was before cleaning them. I bought them in Kansas City, Missouri but don't have the receipt any more.
Thanks for any tips I can accessably use,
