Summary: An iPod Classic does not have a balance control, a major design flaw that I hope Apple addresses. Apple tech support suggested that I buy a new iPod. However, I did some research and in various forums I found NUMEROUS complaints about this issue. Hence, I reasoned that a new iPod could have the same problem, so further research led me to this product, with its independent volume controls for each side.
Pros: Good Value, Great Sound
Cons: Cord too long, Unattractive Design, Uncomfortable
Summary: Because there are so few, if any, balance controls for Ipods, this is ideal for persons who are hearing impaired in one ear. You can adjust the channels to provide stereo sound. Bring it to a electronics repair place and have them shorten the cord. Great product for some persons.
Summary: Got this because of my hearing it work well as it balance the output with the left and right volume control had it for some time now and still work , oh the volume slider feel precise and solid would recommend.
Summary: I bought one of these in 2000 from a local Hi-Fi shop. Thirteen years later I'm still using it. It did get crackly a while ago so I opened the volume slider box, dismantled the sliders and cleaned the metal contacts. I remember feeling slightly aggrieved at the price when I bought it because it was about £30 in 2000 so relatively more expensive than now. Thirteen years later I still find it very useful.
Summary: Sennheiser HZR62 Stereo Volume Control Have you ever been using your headphones to listen to solo instruments and wished the balance between the 2 channels could be tweaked so that you have a perfect central image? In live concerts all you need to do is turn your head slightly (we do this sub-consciously, anyway), but, of course, this won't work with headphones! This is where the HZR62 becomes so useful.
Summary: Simple but very effective. No more crawling under my desk to plug in my headphones. Great idea to have separate volume controls for each ear especially in a noisy office - well only the person to my right is noisy so I can turn up the volume to my right ear!
