Inequality in ears w/ RX700s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I haven't used my RX700s in a while, but today I noticed while playing music that there seemed to be an inequality between the left and right speakers. The left side (with wire) seems to be producing less sound, producing sounds that are 'off center' in a stereo environment. By that, I mean when a voice would normally be 'centered' between my ears, it seems to be right-justified with the RX700s. I've the Xonar DG in my computers, an onkyo amp using a CD, and my Galaxy S III phone with the same results (with multiple songs). Using other headphones and earbuds, the sound seems balanced. Does this sound like a lemon or is this a design issue with these cheap cans?

Lemon for sure. If you don't want to replace them, you can adjust the balance.

This actually happens to me with my Ultrasones, but I found out it had something to do with the earcups (Or whatever you call those things). When I switched the left and the right with each other, it fixes it for me.

But that could just be a specific issue for me.
