[Answer to] “A Music Puzzle”

Deciding to listen to her favorite music, Monica puts on her headphones, the earpiece marked “L” over her right ear, and the one marked “R” over her left ear. She inserts the headphone plug into her music player and presses “play.” She leans back and smiles.

Q: What’s happening here?

A: Monica plays in an orchestra, and is used to hearing its music turned left-right from the way the audience (and the recording companies) hear it.
