Hey all, just got myself a pair of Zolo+. Had been reading all your comments, as well as formal product reviews, so was ready for use cases where the sound is reproduced only through one earbud, the master one, which happens to be the right one. Previously, I used all kinds of wired earphones and only one wireless set, the Bose SoundLink On-Ear BT ones. I found them to always play sound in both ears, with all kinds of applications, that is use cases, music from iphone or from my laptop. I also frequently use my earphones for work, using the Business Skype and am used to getting the sound reproduced in bothe ears, so as stereo. Now, as I keep testing the Zolos with all these use cases, they reproduce sound for Skype only in the mono mode. I began a mail conversation with Anker support over this. Had to explain that my only benchmark is wired earphones, which means that I want the Zolos to do everything those can, plus more. This also implies that they should work seamlessly for applications from DT, through LT, to tablets, to smartphones. Only then, Zolos will conquer the market, as we'd like them to.
As we all know that they are packed with IC's and theoretically offer extension capabilities, I would expect their developers to think ahead and always stay ahead of their peers, so should offer field upgrades for FW, via Internet. Anyway, after these side steps, has anyone of you figured how to use Zolos in stereo mode for Skype? Anker tell me that their protocol connects always with the master (right), followed by the master connecting to the slave (left). I get that, but asked if they can run the mono audio mode, as a quasi-stereo mode, by simply sending the same signal from the master to the slave, so both ear buds would play the sound. By the way, for those of you having a preference for having the mono sound in your left ear, they did mention that they'd designed both of them for BT connection, having the same HW, but had to choose to run them in master-slave mode. However, it would be possible to reconfigure the left one to become the master (I always use my phone on the left side), but did not say exactly how.
