Yes that happened to my first pair. Aurisonics warranty covers it, and they sent out a new pair right away. You might have to wait for that particular color combo though. I changed from gold to grey so that I didn't have to wait.

Odd that it happened to you as well. Hopefully it's not indicative of a more widespread issue.

It better not.

Thanks Gnar, and mine have extra low usage as I havent been using them at work and use the DITAs at home.

So if you wear these around ear, I guess that they would still stick out somewhat because the lack of flexibility from the cable??


Yes, the wires loop out a bit before going over the ear. Looks a little goofy but no microphonics issues, comfort is great and SQ is excellent.

Wait so the microphonics are from the cable dragging on the lobe of the ear and not on a shirt or other article of clothing?  Otherwise wouldn't it still be microphonic since over the ear still hangs down and hits your shirt or something?

From my experience the microphonics are from the vibrations the cable receive traveling up to your ear. I find that it's more sensitive because it's generally deeper in and sealed better in my ear vs other IEM.

Got mine!
 
First impressions are quite good, but the right and left channels are inverted: I tried with two different players to make sure. It isn't just a case of the little red and blue rings having been mistakenly placed, either: The right channel corresponds to the "s" and the left channel to the "a" of the AS logo. 
 
Try your own pairs, for those of you who have them, and let me know if I'm alone in this situation or not. Fortunately, since the housing is similar on both sides, all I need to do it remove the blue and red rings and replace them with something else to indicate the real right and the real left.

Hmm mine has the correct channels. No inverted issues.

Dale always did say never to go by the 'a' and the 's' when I was making them. You should send them an email though they'll probably get you a replacement.

Andy told me the same thing. So it's just a case of misplaced o-rings.

Andy offered, but I can just put the left side into my right ear and conversely. I'll have to replace the o-rings by something else. for instance:
 

 
It's a foam tip I bought (together with blue and other red ones) on eBay. The ear guide is also a separate purchase. The original version of the antiloop had ear guides (see picture below) but the final version doesn't. I wonder why.
