Is cross-talk possible?

Question: I was wondering if this was an intended issue with the IEMatch. I have noticed that I am getting some crosstalk even across different headphones/earphones/IEMs and different devices. Doing a left/right test shows that there is some bleeding with the IEMatch that only occurs when it is connected.

Answer: IEMatch especially if used in single-ended (and possibly not switched to single-ended) will add some extra resistance to the ground (unavoidable), which increases crosstalk over the situation without IEMatch, but the difference should be modest.

Our first reaction would be to check the details, like are you using a 6.3mm adapter? Is balanced or single-ended used? If single-ended, is the unit switched to single-ended?

Please open a ticket.
