Has anybody else seen this behavior. On my AirPods on a call to Apple sales support for a purchase issue. It continues through the call, happens intermittently. But it lasts the whole call.

It’s so odd! I don’t think it’s pairing...

It could be. I wear one at a time in my ear until the low battery noise play and then I switch them. That’s when it usually happens. My coworker told me to try having both in my ears before I put the low battery one in the charger and see what happens. I also noticed it happens a few times while on a call.
