Of course, if you would like us to test your K10U for channel imbalance we would be more than happy to, but please keep in mind that each of our IEMs and CIEMs is tested a minimum of three times at varying stages of the build process. Naturally, no two sides are going to be perfectly balanced, so we have a tolerance that, in our research, is at or above those set forth by competing companies.

Please feel free to PM myself of FullCircle to discuss this topic further.

Try different insertion depths.
Try different tips.
Try switching the earpieces to opposite ears, if possible.
Try the same on different IEMS.

If you're using an iPhone, I recommend AudioSigGen (free).

Software that can generate a sine sweep is also available on PC and on Android.

You can also find one or generate one on Audiocheck.net

Be aware that most IEMs have slight channel matching issues which will sound pretty drastic via a linear sine sweep, but will be practically unnoticeable when listening to music, but you say it's audible in music so....

Joker also mentioned recently in response to one of my posts that you can also try converting a couple of tracks to Mono and listening that way for channel imbalances.

If its a serious channel imbalance, I sincerely hope Noble will, at the least, look into it. AND if there is an issue, I would expect them to refund you return shipping if it's a manufacturer defect and still under warranty, you know cuz they pride themselves on doing the right thing for their customers, *ahem*.


And lastly, if an imbalance is confirmed swap the cable and do the same steps... U may find the culprit is the cable

+1
Swapping cable sides, if possible with the Noble cable and IEM design (not sure), might also test this without trying an entirely different cable, if you don't have another cable on hand.

imo, you'd have to be too rich or too stupid (or both)to do such a thing.

This may be unique to me and my Hifiman HE6 since it has its own personal setup, but I also had this issue and discovered my desktop dac was wrongly configured (it's an audio-gd, so there were jumpers). So I also had to swap out my sources and amps before pinpointing the problem.
