I've got the worst luck... so im listening to music on my he-400s e9+e17 as usual, i go to turn up the volume a bit on a bassy song.. then all of a sudden the left driver loses sound completely sounded like someone just unplugged it........ i switched the wires etc, seemed like the drivers dead? no small no nothing, the connection can't be dead either as it looks fine
have to send them back to the US all the way from australia.. no headphones for over a month i presume....... sigh, i havent even had these for a week
on second thoughts it probably is a connection issue since I've heard the same static "disconnection" sound before in the left driver.. the driver should be fine, nothing DIY solvable though, could anyone suggest how turning the volume up can somehow mess up the connection?
headamp "The customer is responsible for shipping charges if an item is sent in for service. Products from other manufacturers have their own warranties."
so i probably will lose like $50 and 2 months without headphones just because the pair i got decides to be faulty, nice.
Do you have a headphone shop nearby that have some Hifimans? Take it there and try a cable to make sure it's just a connection. Then you can decide what you want to do. If you make cables, you might decide not to ship them out.
