HD 555: no bass in the left ear

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi all! I tried searching for info about it but couldn't find anything so I registered and created this thread. :)

I bought used HD 555 and noticed that bass in the right ear is much stronger than in the left ear and the overall volume is a little bit higher in the right ear. What may be causing it? When I'm listening to the "bassy" songs this difference is so distinctive that it becomes annoying.... I fixed the difference in volume by adjusting channels a little bit, but I can't fix the difference in bass.

I'm going to guess there's cable damage =(

I have checked the cable and I can't see any damage on it...

The damage could be under the rubber coating due to bending it too much...

nice user name op, and i have experients slightly the same problem with these cheap headphones, if i plug in the 3.5 jack all the way it has no bass and distorts like crazy, i mean you cant even hear the lyrics, but when i slighly pull the jack out, not all the way, it goes back to normal so it could be the cable

It didn't help either. Maybe problem is in the 3.5 jack itself, but I don't have another one to check.

So you think that it couldn't be driver damage?

Could it be that the original owner did the foam mod on one side but not on the other? Just a guess.

Have you tried it on different devices? I would also open it up, very carefully as the wires are thin, and look in the cups for any type of mods.

Yes, I tried it in different devices. I think I'll open it and see if something is wrong...

If its not the cable, probably the driver is damaged.
