Which Apple AirPod contains the microphone?

Because who *doesn’t* have a favorite earbud?

One of my favorite features of the Apple AirPods is the ability to use the earbuds as a hands-free way to talk on the phone.

Sometimes, however, I don’t like to have both AirPods in, which begs the question – which side features the microphone?

  • Short answer: Trick question, they both do

Yup, that’s correct! With the AirPods, both earbuds contain a microphone so regardless if you want to keep just your left or right ear in, you’ll be able to use Siri commands and talk to others on the phone.

Touch controls (like double-tapping to hang up the phone or access Apple’s Siri) also works with either AirPod so if you are trying to keep one ear open for coworkers or family, then you can go with the one you feel the most comfortable with.
