Left or right reversable? Over the ear phones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

If you use an over the ear phone under the ear the left and right channel is reversed. Does it matter or not? Are they made symmetric or not?

If I'm not mistaken, most are symmetrical. But the signals sent to the 'phones are not. Which is probably why many 'phones have L/R markings. wink.gif

 

I tend to notice that when the channels are switched, things sound... off. But as long as you have L going to the left and R going to the right, you won't have that problem.

In my opinion left-right doesn't matter unless you play games, or watch a movie.

I can hear it for music. But then again, I'm a bit picky.
