I have noticed something about my AirPods, and I want you to help me understand if this problem is due to AirPods or Mac OS.
Initially, my AirPods were charged to 100%. But After a few hours of usage, I noticed that the left one was at 27% and the right one was at 9%, this got me wondering what causes it, because it's a brand new pair of AirPods.
So, I went into Settings -> Bluetooth -> AirPods (clicked the "Options" button) here:
The "Microphone:" setting has 3 options:
I noticed that when I set it to "Automatically Switch AirPods", it only uses the right AirPod's microphone, I checked it by going into the Sounds settings here:
and then when I tapped on my left AirPod, the "Input level:" bar didn't budge, and it only moved, when I tapped on the right AirPod.
Could someone with AirPods and a Mac do the same test and confirm this for me? I'm trying to understand if going to Apple to fix this problem is going to be a waste of time for me or not, this could be a Mac OS issue after all.
