ad700 cloth touching grill

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

my ad700 cloth under the grill is touching the grill.
it never made contact before despite being visible. is that normal?

That's normal.  Mine sort of touched the grill in places.  The grill doesn't really matter.  If it was touching the diaphragm underneath the grill, then you might have problems!

Yeah, when you wear them the cloth will stretch a bit and touch the grill. No real issues.

 

What's annoying is when a hair slips through that cloth and the grill.

not that part.

look at the back. the purple aluminum thing with holes. you can see a black cloth underneath it.
it never actually made contact with the purple aluminum shell until recently.

thank you for your efforts in posting up a picture.

Yes, that part is supposed to touch as well.  Its just a thin black foam disc that rests against the outer grill.  It's the black piece on the left in the pic.

thank you for confirming this. i thought this was the cause of why the sound seems to be more piercing recently.
