is it unusual?

hey... i recently had a bit of issues with my iems.. specially my westone 4's and my MTPC's..   simply the issue was that i could hear the left side more powerfull than the right side ( very slightly but pretty noticeable )   i thought i have some hearing loss in my ears...  but to tell u the truth i never had this issue with my IE80's..  westone 4 was the worst..   so i decided to take a medical check..  then my doc said i have tinnitus very slightly in both ears although i could hear from 125hz - 8Khz clearly... which means my hearing is in the normal limits.. but on the report she gave it to me it says   Right ear - AIR ( 11Db ) BONE (03Db)   &  Left ear -  AIR (11Db) BONE (05Db )  and i was wondering is that BONE difference has to do something with my left right unbalance IEM issue..  

 

the weird thing though when i try my iems left right swap ed the issue goes to the other side.. wich means i think itsnot a Driver issue ....         can some explain this puzzle to me???

a) could be the track itself

b)could be faulty playback equipment

c)no idea.

To me it's channel imbalance and when software involved then it can happen easily and it happended to me, i don't find any hearing issue. So either it's software or IEMs drivers issue and both canbe solved.

Not sure how you could do a left right swap as the housings are made to fit left and right ears respectively?

 

W4 nozzle is very short and I suspect this is the issue.  A deeper insertion in one ear vesus the other could cause a hearing channel imbalance.

Test the headphones with a different source, if the issue doesn't show itself again, the issue will be connected to the source.  If the problem does show itself, try the same song with a different pair of headphones/speakers.  If the problem still shows up with the other headphones/speakers, it's the actual song that's doing it.  Otherwise, it will be your headphones.

thanks for the feed back guys.. but i find my IE80 to be very balance with my ipod classic... the only issue seems to be with my w4s. and my MTPC..  right nw as spyro says im trying to believe this as a fit issue..    as spyro said is really hard to do a left right swapped test with the westone 4 since it wont stay like that.....
