My ViSang R03's recently broke so I had to buy a new pair of IEMs, and now I desperately miss the R03. I bought these (with the help of amazing reviews here):
For some reason at moderate-high volumes there is this frequent static noise in the background. Sometimes it's very distracting and almost intolerable. At first I thought it was just the "burn-in phase" as you guys call it, but I've been using them for around 2-3 weeks and it hasn't gone away. On the bright side, at least, I don't think it has gotten any worse (*crosses fingers*).
What is causing this?
It's not a constant static (that you would hear on a badly tuned FM radio or something), but it sometimes happens in rhythm at certain beats. However, it also sometimes happens randomly during quieter times when there is just someone singing and no beat.
Could it be that the speakers are already somehow blown out? I do notice it more in the left earphone, which worries me. There are many points in a song when it will ONLY come from the left earbud.
I did lower the maximum volume on my iPod as suggested on the forums to avoid damaging my headphones...I had my ViSang's for quite some time, and the earphones never blew out. I don't think see how it's possible that these could have blown out already.
Did I purchase a defected product?
Thank you for reading.
EDIT: So I decided to try the headphones while plugged into my computer with some Led Zeppelin FLACs. When I turn the volume up, I almost have to take the left earphone out; the static is TERRIBLE. The right earphone had barely any static at all. Now I'm more convinced that the left earbud is faulty.
Should I contact GDAudioBase about the warranty?
