    Headphone Volume Balance Setting?

    So I installed some JM Headsets and am only getting volume from one speaker. Both sides are plugged in. Is there a balance setting for the headsets on the bike?

    There is no balance control.

    No balance. On cars, ears can be in various places from left to right. However, on a Wing, ears are pretty much always centered and the same when they are in a helmet. Therefore, there is no need for a balance control. Your issue is almost always in aftermarket cords or in the headset. If your helmet has a pigtail hanging from it, be sure to check that one too.

    Try to pull the connector where it plugs into the bike out @ 1/16". Some connectors are made differently and if they ground against the bikes connector, it wont work.

    Thanks for the input! Played around with it last night. I noticed that the left channel is working, just didn't sound like it. I changed the SRS HP setting to on which helped, moved around the speakers which also helped a little, but it just doesn't seem to have the volume in the left speaker than the right for some reason. Can't understand why they wouldn't give you a balance adjustment?

    No consideration for the old and hearing impaired!

    Lol...my saving grace is that I have Scala Rider Headsets for my other bike and don't have the same issue.
