I am not saying that you may be hearing something else in addition to this but thankfully I am not hearing it! I did have some major issues with the headphones when I connected them to the headphones out of one of my guitar effects units but after I plugged in the adaptor UE supplied it sounded great.
I agree that these are very revealing and the strumming/reverb of the guitar string is highly realistic but I assure you this is not what I'm hearing. In the worst case scenario and I'm tone deaf (pretty sure I aint!), it should not distort and turn to a fuzz that is completely missing in the right earphone when I use a dual left output.
Thinking long and hard, I have found a way to prove my problem.
YES I went to the extent of wiring a 3.5 male to dual 3.5 female LEFT. (so no right channel audio, just dual left wired to the right pole and left pole) using some Toxic cable wire I had left over (they do some great cables by the way). I only heard the clipping in the left phone not the right thus my left phone is faulty.
Q.E.D. (no not the headphone brand but the latin statement!)
I will be emailing UE and having a bit of a whinge
