Can't get a good seal in my left ear anymore

  1. LostMySelf
    Noticed this like two weeks ago and no matter what eartip I use I can't get a good seal and the music sounds **** thanks to it. I use ear cleaners after showering every day so wax should not be an issue. Seriously what can I do? Go to an ear doctor and get them to clean the canal for me?

    If they're over the ear IEMs try adjusting the earguide from scratch.
     
    I've also heard if you gain/loose lots of weight the ear canal/fit can change. I know what you mean, I have one IEM that fit my ear fine then totally random give me trouble on the left side.

    Hi! I have the same problem with my Bgvp sgz dn1, i can't get a good seal on my right ear, the weird thing is that i get a good seal on the right ear if i put the left earbud.
    Sounds insane i know but if i put them correctly i get a good seal on the left only and if i swap them out i get the good seal in the righ side now. It is like the right earpiece just doesnt seal.
    Anyone knows why this is happening to me?
    Should i get a replacement?

    It is not uncommon to use different size tips for left and right canals. Give that a try.

    Thanks for replying, i´m new to this forum and i´m glad you replyed so soon.
    Well i´ve investigated and i think it is the headphone itself, when i put them on I hear a cracling sound (which i think it comes from the membrane being compresed by the air) only on my left earpiece, and if i blow on them (yeah i said blow) the air kinda comes out on the right earpiece but not on the left, so i think maybe they are cracked or the driver inside is wrong, i have no idea, it kinda bothers me cuz these are my first hybrid headphones and the sound is amazing.
