    I don't know of it's just me but everytime I listen to music or anything on my iPhone I always make sure that "R" is in my right ear and "L" is in my left. It just makes me crazy if I ever do it the wrong way. Is it just me or is anyone else like this? Lol.

    i do the same thing. most of the music i listen to (as well as most professionally produced music) has different parts of the song being played on the right or left, or in-between somewhere.
    listen closely to songs with guitar parts, some guitars will be on one side, and the others on the other side.

    Well, considering they are uncomfortable when placed in the wrong ears, yes.

    Well I do find them very uncomfortable if I have them the wrong way round. They are labelled like that for a reason, since they are shaped differently. I wouldn't say OCD as much as just using them as designed.

    Well it's not as essential with music, but I do ensure I have them in the right ears. Obviously, with something like a movie or a game, having your headphones in the right ears can be essential to matching the video displayed on the screen.

    Agreed, it is just using them properly.

    Yeah, I wouldn't say wearing your shoes on the right feet would count as OCD. I honestly don't understand how people put them in reversed; it's uncomfortable and sounds weird when you have L/R only audio in a track.
