Hi,
 
This is likely because of the physical battery in the device. If you use one of them significantly more than the other it can negatively affect the battery. Using one a lot more than the other will cause it to have more cycles and cause the battery to deteriorate faster. Unfortunately, the batteries on airpods tend to die after ~ 1 and 1/2 years, and the batteries are essentially unreplaceable. It might also be that you keep one plugged in far too much, causing the battery to deteriorate from always being connected to power.
 
 
 
Edit: As mentioned below, you could also disable siri in one of the airpods, which may decrease power consumption. Apple tries to do always on Siri so that it is always listening and ready for you, but this isn’t always necessary and can be a drain on battery.
