    Different lengths can make a significant difference in resale value. If you ever want to sell or trade it may prove hard to get rid of uneven pairs. Due to OCD and all.

    Does it matter if one ear is bigger than the other?

    You can compensate by having one speaker bigger than the other.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I am prompted to design, manufacturer, market and sell the "EAR RIGHT".

    I see this as being a customised (i.e. more profitable) device to compensate for the devilish problem of ear-asymmetry! It eliminates the need for complex, painful and risky surgical correction of ear-asymmetry.

    It comprises a custom-moulded prosthesis using colour matched silicone gel for that natural "I can't believe how not lopsided his ears are!" look. Aside from enhancing your aural pleasure, this device is proven to enhance your bedroom pleasure as this newspaper article confirms!

    Don't delay! Act now! Get the "EAR RIGHT" and everything will be "ALL RIGHT" baby!

    I have never noticed any difference. One system i am using 5m, and 7m lengths. The other system using 4.5 equal lengths.

    The speed of light is pretty fast...

    One instance where I do think it could make a difference is with high capacitance speaker cable, like Goertz, 1m at one side 7m the other, using a cranky amp that is sensitive to such things like NVA, old Exposure or old Naim.

    I ran a system where one speaker cable was 14m long, the other was 6m. Can't say I noticed the ~15ns delay, or the < 0.1dB difference in level, and since I use electrostatic speakers, the difference in damping factor was not important.

    Now my speaker cables are each <1m in length.
