Are the airpods interchangible? Can they be used in either R or L ears? I only can hear in my left ear.

  • Actually yes they are interchangeable - I wear them in the opposite ears because they fit better that way and have found no issue with sound etc. You will need to set the accessibility option on your iPhone/iPad/iDevice to make the sound come out in Mono so that you don't miss sound played through the other AirPod.

  • No. Just like Apple's wired earbuds, the one marked "L" is meant to fit in the left ear, and the one marked "R" is meant to fit in the right. Additionally, the charging box (which looks a lot like a container for dental floss, btw), is designed to charge the buds separately--that is, the right one in the right slot, and the left one in the left slot.
