I hope that this is a driver flex. The left driver sound is 50% decreased than the other. Any ideas?

Most likely... try wiggling it a bit to de-pressurize.

I tried that it opened somehow the sound but still is lower than the other, should I leave it an wait or rather play music in order to "work" on it?

It's most likely driver flex. Basso's are one of the worst I've encountered but you'll figure it out after messing with it some.

Maybe let it rest for sometime? I haven't encountered that problem so far...

Do you have any tip for fixing this quicker? I am leaving them to "rest" for now

I've been using Sony Hybrid tips but the driver flex is still there.  I use a shallow insertion just until I can feel a proper seal.  It can take a few tries to get the right seal.  The unfortunate downside to the Basso's.

Try the MH1C tips if you have them, i was able to hear them right with the MH1C tips despite the bad driver flex.

I agree, I find it very hard to get a good seal with the M6 bi flanges, the stock tips are bit easier to insert however.

I got some "fake" hybrids on the way to me soon so will try em next.

The HTC M7 headset tips are the best I've tried in getting a good seal with such ease.

I've left them almost 24hrs unused and the problem still exists... Do you have any other ideas? I haven't used them more than 2 hrs

post #822 of 4237

I don't think driver flex ever really goes away... just learn to live with it or try foam tips IMHO

Maybe try burn-in for 24hrs. Might loosen the driver and fix it. Goodluck

Can you return them for an exchange?  

 

If it's driver flex, you should be able to fidget around and find a fit that works without too much of a hassle.  This sounds like there could be something wrong.

I bought them of another head-fier so I don't know if there is any warranty at all. I will leave them 24hrs burning-in

I don't know if it's a driver flex or not, I hear some "clicks" when I am trying them but the left driver sounds like 40% recessed than the right one
