So I bought a pair oF Dunu I3C-S IEMs a fellow head-fi member. When I met up with him, I auditioned the IEMs for a brief moment with Coldplay - Princess of China.
Right at the start of the song, I immediately noticed something was different about this pair of IEM's - the beginning synths of the song seem to come from everyone outside my stage, and from far away. I thought that this was just a wide soundstage during the audition.
On the way back home though, on the subway, I started noticing weird things. The music playing through these, particularly vocals, seem to be "smeared" across my whole head, instead of the dead-on-centre in my head, what I was used to with IEMs. I thought this was stereo crosstalk, and because I didn't have anything analytical to test with I left it at that.
But now, I played a audio equipment test CD, that had a phase test track, and I found that my IEMs are actually out-of-phase! I went to a couple more sites:
and in all of them, the out-of-phase tracks actually sound in-phase with my IEMs!
Since these weren't modded I can assume they came like this out of the factory.
So the question is, is there anything I can do to fix this? Re-wire them?
Please help! Thanks :)
