I explained to him that I feel that I have unbalanced hearing and he did a hearing test that showed that my hearing is equal good in booth ears. Don't know how good or precise the test was but both my ears did hear 20dba at the "important frequencies", the vocals. 30dba and up would mean hearing loss, but my hearing was good according to the doctor.
I'm pretty certain that I hear louder in the left ear and when listening to music I hear the vocal coming from the left. I can adjust the balance ~5% to the right and the soundstage becomes centered. I've also tried a mono-test and its clear for me that I hear louder in the left ear. By setting the balance to 5% I hear equally in both ears.
I've tried to switch place on the headphone to see if its faulty, but its not.
1. Does using the "balance"-setting effect the headphones in the long term, since on driver is always playing louder.
2. Is it possible that it's psychological? Since the test shows no difference.
3. How do you do if its unbalanced? Ignore it?
Using the balance-settings limits me to my iPod 5 w/ rockbox and crossfeed.
