Is there any way to independantly control the balance on my Ipod Mini or on Itunes? Let's say as if I were half deaf in one ear and needed to increase the volume on one side or another.

Give Apple Feedback

I have a similar issue where I have a mechanical defect in my right ear since birth. Apple has a link where you can make requests. If enough people request it I'm sure they will make a firmware to add a balance control.

I had to do it this way so I could post the URL since I am not an established user.

I have a similar problem and have emailed Apple under different email addresses to ask for a balance control built into the software. Hopefully some readers with good hearing will feel sorry for us and also contact Apple.

Hi Guys, maybe we should start a "hard of hearing club"

Anyway, I too am in the same boat.... I googled\yahooed etc... and found a nifty piece of hardware that will help us all... read below...
This is a reply that I made to my own request at the MC (Jriver.com) forums (excellent replacement for Itunes by the way.

Well I get to answer my own request... but I figured others might have the same need. I can't be the only guy out there with unbalanced hearing.

IT turns out that Sennheiser makes such an adaptor it's part HZR 62...

But Alas it's very hard to find, and it's $30 ouch... not only that but it comes with a 6 meter cords yuk. Long story short I tracked them down, they are in Connecticut (US), and they will shorten the cable as part of the sale (for another$25!!!.
