Beyer 770 dt crackle

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure how old they are, maybe 3 years, but I've noticed that the right side now makes a crackle sound. I actually haven't used them in months because its so annoying.

I'm no tech or anything, but I opened them up, and to me I see no issues. No tears or anything.

What can I do about this? It's really unfortunate that these $200+ headphones no longer work properly after what is relatively a short period of time.

It might need some re-soldiering. I think there's a specific category here on head-fi that specialize in this kind of stuff.

Double check to make sure there isn't a hair in the diaphragm. If not, David's correct, it's possibly a bad solder joint at the driver or the jack.

I didn't see any hairs in there. From my understanding the white tissue like paper isn't the actual driver, and I don't see how hair could really get through that.

As cor the cable, the jack its solid, it cant be opened or anything, so I dont see how the joint would loose connectivity inside there.

It has to just be that the driver is screwed up, which sucks, because from the repair form I looked at it seems like it would be at least $85 to have it repaired, which just seems like a lot of money since its almost half the cost of a new one.

A quick tug or a pull can cause an intermittent short. If the driver does need replacing, you might as well have Beyer handle it directly, as it was over $100 to get a pair of drivers from them last time I took care of a repair. But without anyone checking out the headphone, all one can do is speculate.

So would you suggest trying to re-cable the jack, or jjust save up and send it in and be safe about it?

Recabling may be needed if you have none of the previous issues...you could get somebody else to make it for you.
