In fact, the sound of the driver is highly dependent on it's surroundings. A...

    Sony ZX700: only work in one ear.

    I've put it here as I don't really consider them portable.    As the title says really; a couple of hours after last using them I plug them in and they suddenly only work in the left ear (the corded side) and not the right.    I'm fairly sure they'll be out of warranty/guarantee etc (UK)...

    Do the DT250 pads fit the new Sony ZX700s like they did the MDR V6 / 7506?
