    Hey guys! Recently I purchased a pair on sennhieser Cx400's just for portable use. I found that one ear had dramatically less bass than the other. This could be down to a few things. The earbud isn't fitting well enough or the bass is just inferior on one earphone. Now the weird thing is, that same earphone never feels as snug as the other one, even if i swap the buds round and use them in the same ear. I Have abolutley no idea what the problem is. Any sugesstions would be much appreciated!
    Thanks in Advance.

    I didn't quite get that. Do you mean one channel is not working as well as the other or do you mean one of your ear canals may be smaller or bigger and therefore it is a poor fit which is causing the problem? If the headphones are at fault return them and you will get new ones. If it is a fit problem then get some of these -
