It's probably a bad seal. Silicone flanges have a tendency to slowly slip out over time with these. So while you start with the same kind of seal between your ears, this changes over time giving the impression of channel imbalance. If you pull them out, re insert them and still get imbalance your pair has a hardware problem.

There's no magic cure. This happens with my unit and apparently with a lot of other units. It's called low QC, and the only thing that helps is to turn off your DAP, and give the driver rest. It " resets" itself, and works again until the next time it goes "quiet" aka imbalanced.

It's not a seal problem at all. It's a problem with bad drivers. With large flange, I get a air tight seal 100% of the time, and the imbalance still happens, as well as reduction in volume.

Wait until the QC issues start, then sick will be an appropriate word lol

Zero Audio has well documented Quality Control issues with the Tenores. Really tangible issues which in my case, hopefully doesn't apply to the Doppio? *crosses fingers*

Cool thanks for the info. do these improve after burning process?

post #3564 of 4483
Yes they are very dependent on burn in. 200hrs +, and you get increases "reference" sound with this 3D punchy bass and really full bodied lushness in the mids.

Wow these are not at the level of my new tuned fa 4e xb but I paid the same for the mh1c and these are ridicously better will report after some burning time

Not one bit. tongue.gif

Seriously, I don't have 200hrs on them, yet, but I confidently report a total change in sound of exactly nil thus far.

Cool thanks

I changed the tips to the sony mh1c and the sound is much better now. Incredible for the price and not far of the best I've heard.

This. In order to make that statement you have to have another pair for reference. I have two pairs and i've also used two of James' pairs, there was no noticeable change whatsoever with either of them.

 

[EDIT]

As for tips, the s200 foams are a good option for those that don't like their sub bass lifted.
