guys - when I put both my airpods on, the phone call immediately transfers to the airpods. However, I only like using one airpod at a time and that's hit or miss. How do I get the voice call to efficiently transfer over quickly with one airpod? Any tips?

Thx

Should work if you leave the other one in the case, or not?

Just do it slowly, I've found that to be the best way to do it. I often times use my AirPods for a long 1 hour phone call at work. I'll often times swap between the two to keep them >50% charged. And yes, you're right, if you do it quickly, it does not work consistently all the time. Do it slowly, it should work - sometimes you have to do it more than once.

I start out with two, then charge one, and swap as they hit 100%. Mostly out of boredom but... <cough>. :p
