Like I said in the title, sometimes sound will only come out of one ear on my Grado SR 60is. This is not an issue with the devices that I'm using- I've used many different devices with them (various ipods, computers, I don't have an amp yet) and you always have to do various things to get it to come out of both ears- including tilting the device, turning the jack inside the device, etc. If I have to be, I can be more specific.
But the main point is that this is a pretty big inconvenience to me, and I've been looking into getting a different pair of headphones because of it. But after making different posts elsewhere, I've discovered that Grados are very easy to fix and mod. But not being very tech savvy, I'm not sure if I'd be able to do it.
So overall- should I repair the headphones (and how do I do so?) or buy a new pair (I've been considering the SR 80is as an upgrade, the ATH m50s due to the rave reviews, but am open to all suggestions)?
Devices tested on- two ipod touches, one PC, one macbook. All required some fussing with the jack to get it to work properly.
Music I listen to in case you have headphones suggestions- most rock (everything from classic to modern- but not hard rock/metal), jazz, classical, alternative (mostly talking heads and stuff like that) and getting into progressive rock (king crimson, jethro tull, yes).
