I am not sure that the Seidio adapter is the problem. I think it is the Pearl's audio port.
I have lots of 2.5mm headsets, earphones and three Seidio adapters.
They all have the problem you mention. When I twist the male end of the device it goes from stereo, to one ear, then back to stereo.
Since this happens on all my devices I have to say it's the Pearl port. If you look at it closely [I have, with a jeweler's loupe] it's not all that well constructed.
I read somewhere that the rumored Pearl 2 will have a 3.5mm audio port and it will be improved. I suspect that what RIM is talking about is improving the construction.
