With all the design awards Apple has received for the iPod, you’d think that they would have eliminated this flaw long ago… But, as far as I can tell, they still haven’t.
If you want to make sure that the earpiece for the right-hand side is in your right ear and the one for the left-hand side is in your left ear — and, apart for people interested in alternative stereo sound experiment, who doesn’t? — then you almost always have to physically move the little black covers that protect the earpieces in order to be able to see the little “L” or “R” label on the white earpiece itself.
Really, it’s quite ridiculous.
