Another good reason to check your mix in mono...?

An earbud that "integrates both channels of audio, providing stereo quality sound through a single ear".

One Good Earbud: Single Earbud in Stereo

Stereo in one ear? So does that mean you can wear two and get quadraphonic hearing?

Man if this thing catches on...just how bad can consumer playback quality get? First 128kbps and now we could be down to one channel? Perish the thought.

Works for me. Time to send the spare M-23 stackplate to JRF to put on some full track heads.

Cheers,

There are some trails I walk where I am concerned about getting taken out by a cyclist or blader, and in those places I will not listen to music at all. Mono-izing doesn't help. Listening with one earbud is unsatisfactory for so many reasons, most of them having nothing to do with missing that hard-panned backing vocal.

when your name is "Joe", it sounds so much like "yo" that I don't even turn around, anyway.

got to give the guy props for making his literally half-assed product seem like you are getting something 'extra' for your $20
