Not rubbing alcohol. Do you think that would help if there is something shady going on inside the housing?

Well many others who reported this problem were able to fix it by cleaning the grille.

So unless the driver is loose inside the housing I doubt it could be anything else.

Thanks, I'll give that a go later today and report back.

Its great to see that you venture to uphold such amazing customer relations.

So glad I bought them from you! biggrin.gif

Yes, this is the exact problem I had with the right ear. This is called driver flex, where the driver moves about due to the suction inside the ear. Try asking your supplier/retailer for a replacement citing that this is a common issue. But, I have to say, never really seen someone have problems with the left ear.

Thanks. I got mine from Audio Affair so as they just posted above looks like I'm getting myself a brand new pair :)

But what I find really curious is how does the driver flex cause the speaker to stop producing any sound AT ALL? I mean there can't be that much suction can it?

I am sorry to bother!
But can I ask where I can buy them online? 
I have checked amazon but they are not selling them.
Thanks!

It's no bother at all! Where are you located? Audioaffair does international shipping if I'm not mistaken.

Well, this is a dynamic driver, think of your typical bass speaker. If you push your hand on it then the sound becomes muffled or stops because the driver cannot vibrate. The hand is exactly what the air between your driver and eardrum does; it pushes against them. Sometimes you can temporarily fix this problem by inserting smaller size tips and lifting your ear upwards while inserting your earphones to minimize pressure in the ear.

Are these earphones right for my needs?
 
I'm after some portable earphones which I will pair with my Nexus 4 phone for music, movies and the odd bit of android gaming. (I may get a portable slim amp if you recommend)
 
I will use the phones whilst at the gym and commuting so I MUST have noise isolating ones which don't disturb passengers whilst I can block out noise from the outside world.
 
I'd like them to have good clarity, spatial awareness, bass and the type of Music which I may listen to now and gain is beats antique as shown in the video below

Budget £80-100
 
Thanks
