Nope, no popping here. Not encountered it
I do need some help though. I'm not sure if its the closed nature of the phones, but I don't listen to music particularly loud, yet, when wearing the M-100's I can feel at times after about 30 minutes to an hour my left ear feeling like it is tensing up. Like a muscle is closing or something, and I believe its my ear trying to protect itself.
Could this be because the M-100's are closed and so is pressurising my ear more than an open set would do? I never encountered this issue with my PX-100's as an example at the same volume levels.
I did have something worrying happen a few minutes ago though. I was listening to Nightwish - Imaginarium (The Score) - Dare To Enter at the end, (and it just happened again without anything playing... :( ), and there is this major sub bass drop at the end. If you listen to it, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Well, I was listening with my standard volume levels, and I even showed my sister and my dad the drop, and whilst showing my dad, my right ear suddenly numbed, and sound degraded. Then it appeared to be fine, and it just happened again as I stated.
It happens at 1.38 in, and even my sub can't reproduce it properly, yet the headphones can.
Not had that happen before, ever.
Could it be the extra pressure being sent through the headphones than a normal pair would make? Or should I go to the doctors for possible hearing issues? (I've never had any in the past), and I seriously do not listen to my music all that loud.
I'd be worried if the bass could go any stronger than it is now.
Just happened again. The ear suddenly sounds off, and I hear a fuzz, then it appears to return to normal.
I do have a chest virus, and I hope they are somewhat linked...it feels so weird.
