    Just got a late 2013 rMBP with max specs.

    Got skype and talked to friends however, I only heard them through my right speakers.

    After googling, people said it was actually a feature not a bug since they have some sort of noise cancelling mic on the left speaker.

    Is this true for you guys that use skype? Right speaker audio only?

    This is normal for the 15-in rMBP/MBPs. Audio comes out of the right speaker only when using Skype.

    One thing that is weird is that Apple's website shows the dual mics on the body of the rMBP but for the life of me, I cannot see them on my 15-in rMBP. - under Connections and Expansion. This may only be applicable to the 13-in rMBP though and I suspect that the mics (one or both? not entirely clear) are under the left speaker grill for the 15-in rMBP.
