Yesterday I got my replacement pair. It was a white box replacement. It wasn’t exactly a positive experience with the Genius Bar guy. When I got home I could see and feel residual glue on the seems of the left airpod. The seem also looked dirty. Maybe just bad luck. Or maybe a previous returned one. idk.I think the huge reduction in ANC you experimented is somehow related to seal test failing.
Keep the post update after the swapping. I’m curious to know if they’ll give you a white box replacement or new product...
I returned them today. Got a full refund, also full refund on AppleCare+. I feel relieved.
