Headphone/earbud question.

Let me explain from the beginning.
I was born with a hearing defect which left me at an early age with only 20-25% hearing on my left side. To compensate my hearing was tested at about 125% on the right side. One side compensates for the other as they say. When I applied for the police academy they made me see their specialist who was blown away at what I could hear even tho it was one sided.
When I used to use headphones to listen to the stereo I would turn up the left and turn down the right until I kinda had stereo sound. Now after years of being a firearms instructor and well, just getting older, I no longer have that ability.
When using the F75 with the Grey Ghost headphones I noted there was no stereo noted. Using the Legend with the NM bluetooth headphones I sense there is but there is no volume control on each side. In looking at all your different posts I see a lot using earbuds, thus the following question(s)..
I see nothing that says the Legend is stereophonic and if it is how much sound response do I lose if I cant hear one side? Are ear buds volume adjustable??? I dont feel like I’m missing anything but then I may not know it either. I know with the headphones on I sometimes believe I’m catching low bass vibrations and thats what got me to thinking…..
Thx

Legend headphones are stereo, if you pair it with a phone or computer. These are just regular low latency BT headphones. A signal transmitted by the Legend, on the other hand, is not stereo… or to be exact, it's a stereo with both ears having an equal output of the same signal.
I don't think there are headphones or buds that will let you adjust the volume for each ear individually, unfortunately. Your best bet would be just using the stock ones, cranking up the volume so you can hear with the left ear, and wearing an earplug (perhaps something like Surefire EP4) in the right ear.

My Sunray Pro Gold headphones have volume control for both ears. I am sure they are not the only ones. They are louder than my Grey Ghost ones too. Deteknix makes a wireless adapter that works well if you don't like to be tethered to your detector.

Legend manual indicates turning up the volume uses power. I am more concerned whether or not some of the sounds were going to the left or right side unequally, sounds as tho it does not.
