Hello dear readers I recently bought the 712 pro cans and am loving them.
but there is one small problem…
you see on some songs I would notice that my left driver is a tad bit louder then the right,
so I went out to test why that is.
I got my multimeter and measured the resistance on the cable and mini xlr pins on the headphones
the cable was ok but the pins showed a resistance difference of 1 ohm one had 55 ohms and other 56
I then confirmed that the difference is there after I plug the cable(note I don’t know witch one I was measuring but I would guess that the lower ohm one was louder …),
then I opened the headphones to check if there are any faulty looking cables or solder and it all seemed to check out.
My head theory is that the headphones came out of the factory like that and that the 1 ohm difference might be because they use the metal headband construction to connect the left and right driver and not copper cables like normal.
Now I don’t know squat about electronics but hear me out…
The cable I get with the phones is like 3 m long and I have been thinking about getting a new one so my logic goes like this:
What if I cut the cable to the length I desire but I leave more cable on the line that has lower ohms enough to make up the one ohm difference …?
I don’t know how it would affect the signal if at all and if it will fix the slight difference or how much cable is needed to make up one ohm for now I want to see if this is plausible and if there are any different ideas I can try that might be better?
Thanks a lot in advance for reading and commenting your thots I look forward to reading them.
For any tests photos experiments and the like I should do or try just comment and Il get to it.
