If you’re an owner of AirPods Pro, you may be wondering how to best position the microphone for phone calls and using Siri. The AirPods Pro come equipped with a microphone in each earpiece, and the default setting is Automatic, meaning eiter pod can act as the microphone. But if you want to use only one AirPod, then you’ll need to adjust the microphone setting.

The first step is to make sure that you have inserted your AirPods Pro correctly into your ears. The medium-sized ear tips generally work best for most people, as they povide a secure and comfortable fit. If they don’t fit snugly in your ears, try adjusting them or switch to larger ear tips. And if the ear tip feels too big or uncomfortable in your ears, switch to smaller ear tips instead.

Once you have inserted your AirPods Pro correctly into your ears, you can now adjust the microphone settings. If you want both of your AirPods to act as microphones during phone calls or when using Siri, then leave the setting on Automatic. However, if you want just one of the AirPods to act as the microphone – regardless of which one it is – then set Microphone to Always Left or Always Right.

That’s all there is to it! By following these steps, you can ensure that your AirPods Pro are perfectly positioned for making phone calls and using Siri.
