Anyone, know how to control R-L output in iphone?

You shouldn't pan the sound to make the ears sound equal. Have you tested your ears, as in listening to other headphones and see if you hear the imbalance too?

If it really is the IEM, you should return them.

yep, i tried with other phones, and now am damn sure the right peice is faulty since it distorts, i mean only the right side distorts when too many instruments are played through. Trance, classic, vocals  and my favourite Evanescence as well as Dido.

files- 16/44.1  and 24/48-alac

source- iphone 4s + E11

I went through 12 different sets of headphones over four months to find what I was looking for from the BA200. I thought I was going to have to go with an over or on ear. These are amazing.

I owned each one below;

K550
SRH940
SRH840
ATHM50
M80
D2000
DT770
DT880

^ That's pretty cool :)

I've owned many of those headphones. I sold all of them, but the ba200 isn't going anywhere.

Great price. Hope you like them!



Speaking of warranty, the 3.5mm extender died on me yesterday on the female side. Gonna call up TDK today. Gave me a good scare at first with no sound coming from the left earpiece.

Using your phone while not having the extender is ridiculous; you need to keep it about 8 inches from your face. Luckily my jacket had a breast pocket.

Mine failed a few days ago, and the same thing... I cannot hear from the left side.

 

TDK (or should I say Imation) is efficient and changed a new cable for me immediately.

 

Nice service I feel, though I am not sure about other countries.

 

Guess I should consider a reshell when the warranty period is over.

post #911 of 1420

does it make any difference if you use your own extender cable? after the end of the warranty period i mean. They should be darn cheap from ebay

Didn't really hear much (or any) difference, though my white Audio Technica extension cable look weird on the BA200

post #913 of 1420

yeah ok but you are not going to buy a white cable tongue.gif
 

 

I am wondering why the extension cord is so fragile. i am reading a lot about that failing.....

 

 

Do you have any future suggestions for a durable extension cord same length?

They ran out of extension cables and want me to send back the entire unit and package and they'll replace it with a new one. As nice as that sounds, I'd rather just not deal with that and have a new extension cable sent out to me. Oh well.

 

I didn't even give a thought to reshelling them. That's interesting. I can't imagine it not changing the sound. Has anyone reshelled them yet?

I cant tell if it was my imagination, but it sounded louder without the extender. Any 3.5mm female to male should work. You can even buy one of those reaaaaaally expensive ones or have one made, not that I see a reason for it since it would just feed into the stock upper part of the cable.

I used an AT cable too, from my CKM50 biggrin.gif

It was a looser fit around the plug than the stock extender cable fwiw, but still works fine.

that sounds interesting. I will check it myself when they arrive. just for kicks. normally i am reading that changing cables does indeed change the sound but i will also test that

 

 

But it shouldn't make any difference because the signal feeds the drivers through the upper stock cable. therefore any change coming from the lower cable end would automatically be cancelled by the stock cable one. would that be a right thing to say? Sound would change only if you change the whole cord that connects to the drivers.

 

 

it would only change the impedance a different extender cord if i am not mistaken
