I'm experiencing an annoying bug with my Airpod 2 Pros, firmware 5B58.
Despite having Spacial Audio, head Tracking, Headphone Accommodations, Transparency and Noise Reduction all turned off, I am hearing fake room sound added to mono source material such as audiobooks. Not only that, but when I move my head, the sound shifts in the stereo field, and settles back to phantom center position after about five seconds.
This is happening on an iPhone 8 plus running iOS 16.2.
If you are experiencing this bug as well, please report it to Apple at the following link:
Thank you and have a great 2023 to come!
