    Hello y'all. I just realised today that my Romeo 1.0 left side ear stem is touching the inside of right lower side orbital when the left earstem is close first. All my other X-metals dun display such issue. Is it just the frame or the rubbers finally gave way in my Romeo? Anyone having the same issue? By the way, when the right ear stem is close first, it dun touch the left lower orbital.

    Just checked on mine - both arms stop equal distant from the orbital when closing each one individually. (about 25mm). If you look closely you will see that there is a notch in the frame (where the arm screw goes through) which the corresponding arm comes to a stop against. If you want I will post a picture to show what I mean.

    SOME arms do this- its especially prevalent on juliets. it was a casting issue but it wasnt really considered a problem. dont worry about it

    Thanx BriP. That sure sets my mind at ease. For a moment I thought it might need a rebuilt.

    Thanx mjt42. I really didn't notice the notch on my Romeo before. I'll check it up once I'm home tomorrow.
