**Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread** - Page 1139

post #17071 of 17076
I just received my HE-400's from Hifiman & I'm not sure whether my ears are playing tricks on me or not but it seems like the left channel is a db or two off from the right channel. It's slight but I'm pretty sure it's there. I don't know any real way to measure it to confirm though. I've tried different sources & amps but it still feels like there's a slight difference? Any suggestions? Other than that I really like the sound, I can just completely relax & enjoy the music vs my Q701's.

Try putting them on the opposite way - left cup on right ear, right cup on left ear.  Does the imbalance follow?

Could be a little wax buildup.

Yes, I forgot to mention that I did that & the imbalance does follow.

Is it related to the bass only or the total spectrum ??

The problem now is that you'll focus on that all the time mad.gif

Contact Hifiman and get a replacement !!
