Input on AD700's.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been listening to my refurbished Ad700 from the sound professional's deal a week ago. I notice that channels are somewhat unbalanced. The sound seems to be favoring the left side.

I was wondering if anyone notice this with their ad700's. Should i request a RMA?

Or could it be from the songs im playing?

RMA. The other other reasons that doesn't need RMAing is channel balance settings in Windows or you not plugging it in properly but if that was the case, you wouldn't hear the one side completely as opposed to unbalanced.

flip them around and see if the right side (left can) is the dominate speaker. Maybe you are going deaf in one ear

My dad said the same thing about my used pair. They sound even to me however. If it bothers you, maybe adjust the balance?

if it bothers you that much might as well RMA the headphones, as long as you dont mind waiting.

I been messing around with the balance and stuff on windows and set them equal to both sides, removed all creative software. It does sound unbalanced to me, when i wear them the flipped around i can definitely distinguish the channel imbalance.

I'll give them a good listen.

Edited: After some tweaking and going through a variety of songs on my playlist and comparing them to my IEM's,

I think i was just perceiving a channel imbalance due to a sound stage placebo. The instrument placement on the recordings were fooling me in perceiving a imbalance.


Thanks for all those that helped.
