  • Yes (and no, actually)

    The wires are, in fact, the same length, and they have a sliding clip to lessen the gap between the wires under your chin. However...

    One side of the clip is removable, so if you want to you can actually loop one of the cords around, then clip back on itself higher up near the earpiece, thus making the headphone cord behave just like the "shorter on one side" cords (ie: the cord drops down one side of your face, rather than straight down from under your chin).

    Hence my answer: Yes, and no :-)

    Simple, effective, and ingenious. Just one more of Apple's brilliant design ideas.
