This is my first post (I've been lurking here for almost a year now). After reading this great review by John Medeiros, I went out and got the XB1. I chose the XB1 because of the color rather the bass. I've had them for a while but only had about 30 hours on them.
I have the same problem as Bonkura. There are some clippings and distortions at high volume (over 3/4). The THX intro, the opening scene of SW II, Blade II, any scene with the deep bass or explosions. I've been playing with the DH settings and clippings/distortions are there. I'm very positive that the batteries were at least 3/4-1/2 full.
I'm not that worried about this problem (yet). At this point, I assume they need some break-in like any other headphones or speakers. I'll give them a variety of diet to break them in for another 30-40 hours. Hopefully they'll get better. If not, I'm still very happy with them.
Thanks for reading
