My pair doesn't have the inline remote, but just a microphone. I haven't had any problems with channel imbalance whatsoever.



 

Here's a pic of the cans for those interrested.

Where did you order from to get the mic only version?

Ok, thank you! So far no word of these coming to the US that I've seen.

If I push my earlobes inside the cups I get a slightly better isolation the cups+pads are too big for me they can touch a portion of my jawbone. The angled drivers are a good idea but they should redesign the cups to make them a little narrower and kill the cheapo volume control for sure.

Got these the day before yesterday for 55 euro's.

I got the black version, since these don't have the volume control.

At first I wasn't too impressed by these headphones.

Therefore I let them play for 24 hours straight.

Picked them up this morning and was pleasantly surprised by the sound these cans can produce.

Though not quite on par with my Grado SR60i, I'm still glad I ordered them since I can use these on the train and bus whilst the Grado can not for obvious reasons.

Hey guys ordered a pair off amazon and in the picture they didn't have the volume control:

 

but on receiving them it does have the annoying volume control slider. 

 

Is the slider a big enough of an issue that it's worth returning them over to get a non-slider model?

post #369 of 370

Only if the balance is off centre but you can always swap for the all black version without the volume slider.

^ I have a pair with the slider. The balance is fine so the slider is a non-issue.
As 2806 said, as long as the balance is ok, there shouldn't be an issue.
