It's difficult do see in the cx6 picture, but the channel is designed to let a very small amount of air pass between the earcanal and the outside.
We can only guess, but it looks like it is designed to equalize air pressure.

Looks like IE7 has the same design feature, but it can't be clear seen in the picture.

Can someone show a picture of how these sit in the ear when worn straight down? Thanks.

Or if they can even be worn this way.

I have the IE8 and you can wear them straight down if you wear the right channel on your left ear and vice versa.

Thanks for that, hope that IE7s should be able to go on the same way.

Wearing them that way will mean the stereo channel is reversed. With the IE 8, you can easily swap the cable around.

i believe the cables on the ie7 and ie8 are not swapable right? also, does it take time to get use to wearing over the ear IEMs? all the ones ive ever owned just hang straight down so im kinda worried a lil bit. i dont think it'll be a problem since i dont really hear much about ppl complaining about them.

I personally dislike ones that do not go over the ears; the ones that only hang down feel very insecure to me.

It takes about 5 mins to get used to them...mainly it's just getting used to putting them on rather than after the fact.

I used to hate the thought of wearing headphones over the ear, but after I actually got my first IEM, it actually makes more sense, since it provides a more secure fit, makes the IEMs stay in your ear, and also takes away from the microphonics. Good stuff.

Yeah. On the other hand, if you really don't want to wear them over the ear, you can just put the right earpiece in your left and vice versa, but then you'd be spending time trying to get used to all your music again, since it'll all be backwards, not necessarily a bad thing, as long as you can get used to it hahaha.

As indicated, I think it's possible to swap the left and right cables around to correct for that.

Not for the 7's though. I'm pretty sure they don't have a replaceable/swappable cable.
