Hmm, I've been listening to these for a while and found that on certain mid-bass notes the headphone has a mild rattling noise in the right ear with some distortion. Have any of you ever heard of this problem before? Do I have a faulty right driver? It doesn't happen all the time, just on songs with a lot of mid-bass. I'm listening to the kids don't stand a chance by vampire weekend(maybe someone can reproduce this noise?) and every bass note sounds kinda like if I left an aluminum can on top of my speakers.
Youtube / lossy / lossless source? Could be a variety of reasons such as amp clipping / dynamic range compression / bitrate issue / an intrinsic part of the music itself.
I remember the same complaints coming from Mad Lust Envy when he just received his HE400, where he kept complaining about noises and "distortions" in various bass-heavy music he listens to, and it turns out they are all just flaws in those tracks, revealed due to the high detail extraction of these particular headphones.
