These headphones sound great when I can get both drivers to work, unfortunately it seems that the 3.5mm connector is two small and not always making a good contact while plugged in. So on top of the £36 import fee I guess I'll have to shell out for a new cable aswell now.

I'd check your 3.5mm jack before blaming the cable. Those jacks cause problems far more often than the plugs.

Sorry, a bit off topic but how much did you have to pay for your pair in total? Just ordered mine form the UK and was wondering.

I've tried it in a few different devices and there just seems to be to much play on the connector, I can only really get audio through both drivers if I out some pressure in the connector

No worries. In total they cost me just under £160 with import tax, which I would still say they're definitely worth.

Sounds like it's probably that damned right angle connector. If you're plugging it in to a socket that has any raised material around it you can't get it to plug in all the way.
New cable it is...

Yeah I'm not super bothered by it, as I did plan on buying a longer cableev entually , I'm just a little annoyed that it diddnt work properly to begin with.

It works, it's just a dumb shape. If you try plugging them into a phone (which is the only place a right angle connector makes sense) and there's any case on it, it won't work. If you look round the plug on whatever you're plugging it into I'm guessing you'll see that it's hitting something surrounding the plug.

But you can get it to connect by pushing it in further? This is very interesting to me. Sorry to keep bothering you...

It's Ok. Not buy pushing it in further but putting pressure on it at an angle such as pulling down on the chord, it seems as if the 3.5mm connector is slightly to thin I've also tried it on my Samsung s8 and my plenue D.
The problem seems to stem from the tip of the jack because when because swap the cables around the problem changes to the from the right to the left side

It certainly sounds like there's either a small tip on the connector or a bad solder joint in the cable. It's an interesting defect. I've never experienced something like what you're describing with 3.5mm connectors, but they have other common failures that i would have expected first.
