Yep, same here (except my left is louder than my right and bass is more in the left). Surgery I had as a child was less effective on the right side. I doubt I'd have noticed, though, if I didn't check with mono signals or with spectrum analysers. I typically find bass goes to the left and some upper mids go to the right. Other than that its generally OK.
I doubt more than 5% of the people here have even hearing loss.
HOWEVER, I find that speakers are way less prone to imbalance because of hearing than headphones (due to the strong bias), and maybe the K1000 too (I haven't had the pleasure). When I get some more cash flow I intend to set up a speaker set to compliment my magico model 6s for this very reason.
Its no big deal, its just irritating sometimes.
