    So I was on a train home - I live end of the line. Fell asleep with airpods in my ear, woke up with only one in my ear. Checked the seat, the floor - nothing.
    It's lost.

    How do I get it replaced? Just go to the Apple Store?

    You can order a replacement Airpod for $69.00. You can contact Apple or travel to your nearest Apple Store.

    That's what I know absolutely will avoid is using it on plane. Cause you'll fall asleep and it can pop out by your movement (it falls out when I put on my hoodie with AirPods in). When I fly I'm using EarPods. Gym, my car, jogs, sleep in my bed at home all AirPod sleep.

    Ya the strap is good for situations like planes or busses or trains.

    Yeah so I contacted Apple and went through 2 x telephone support staff and 1 x live chat staff who all denied I could get a single replacement AirPod. Went to a physical Apple Store and they flat out said no.
    so did some googling and found the hidden page on apple's site. Called them back again and after shelling out £65 the replacement on is on the way.
    That was painful. If I were being wreck less with the airpods I would have Myself to blame, but for the life of me I have no idea what happened to the missing one.

    Anyway check my podcast 'The Intersection' for further details of my tale of woe
