Airpods Pro and Transparency mode

Hardware and Accessories

Hi there! I was considering getting a pair of airpods pro and wondering if transparency mode will transmit outside audio to both ears when in mono mode. I am deaf in one ear and it would be helpfull to know before purchasing. If anyone has any experience with this, please let me know!

Audio is independent to each ear, IE, only the sounds on the left will be heard in the left AirPods and likewise on the right.

If you are looking for a solution that does mono, you could turn off transparency and use live listen which sends audio from your iPhone to the AirPods, also available on older versions of the AirPods too.
