I work fully remote and spend a lot of my day in videocalls. Over the time, I've created a setup that works quite well for me:
- Apple AirPods as headphones, which allow me to concentrate better on calls than speakers
- A proper boom microphone for great voice quality
While it works quite well, there is a slight annoyance: Every time macOS connects the AirPods, they automatically become the microphone as well, even though they have a worse quality. Also, using AirPods as pure speakers also increases their sound quality.
In this post, I'd like to show the small solution I built to solve this for me.
