Default XBA3's lose sound in one channel after 2hrs

So it's been pretty consistent results, around the 2hr mark the left channel loses volume and eventually becomes barely audible around the 2hr mark. I'm concluding that I am listening to them too loud, I shall do a test sometime whereby I just leave my player running at a lower volume and check on them periodically.
It's a first for me, never had an IEM do that and I have owned quite a few, interesting that the XBA3's are the highest end most expensive IEM to do this.

I shall try the XBA2's (VP) and see if they do the same tomorrow (I haven't been able to fully put them through the test.

Just thought ya'all might like to know.
