Ahh, no pop for me.. The crackles sound like a tiny vibrating piece of metal..

post #9572 of 18083

The pop's definitely there, it seems to be part of the recording.  I dont hear the vibrating piece of metal you speak of though.  What do you mean when you say you turn the headphones around?

post #9573 of 18083

I took the protection grill off of the left channel and found out that this bit of metal (in the picture), when I slightly blow at it, flutters WAY MORE than the same bit on the right channel.. Could that be the problem? 

post #9574 of 18083

I put the right channel on my left ear.

post #9575 of 18083

nvm...you spotted something wierd

If it's present in several different recordings you may need to RMA for a replacement - that driver may have an issue.  Before that however, I recall reading that a small fiber/hair/dust particle could also cause an artifact in the sound, and I think the advise was to gently use canned air to try and extract anything from the driver.  If you do have to get a replacement, HiFiMan's customer service is said to be excellent.

 

Edit - I just saw your posting above.  If you can visually see an inconsistency between the two drivers, one may be bad.  I would contact HiFiMan's customer service and let them know to see what their advice would be.  http://hifiman.com/AboutUs/Contact/

It's only this recording, this is why I asked you guys to try and listen to it

post #9578 of 18083

Also listened to a couple of other piano recordings, at the similar pitch I can hear the crackles.. 

post #9579 of 18083

Thanks, will try that

Btw guys, was there a warranty sheet within the package when you received it? I didn't get any. I also didn't buy it directly from them.

Is there any sort of consensus over what the best pair of Sennheisers might be that would be considered to have comparable extension to the HE-400, and a bit on the nuetral / cold side? Prior discussions have suggested that the 600/650 would be about right. How about the 598s?

 

I've been re-discovering my HD-595s after a long break from them, and really like having a comfortable, light, and non-fatiguing phone around. I may want to upgrade, but I am not sure that moving into a 600/650 would be a noticeable step up. I wouldn't be interested in spending more than $2-300 or so.What about other brands?

 

The 400's are sonically superior to my ears, but they haven't made me hate Sennheiser.

Not to mention the price difference and type of drivers

  I think mine was a warranty card which was inside the black bag where the headphone reside.  I can't read it for worth of anything as it's in chinese.

post #9583 of 18083

Well, I definitely don't have that..

post #9584 of 18083

Mine was supposedly from an RMA and it didn't have it. The person I bought it from actually had two sent to him for return service and according to him his didn't have one either.

 

Manual was also beat up on mine, but the headphone itself was pristine from what I can tell. Very strange.

Great, these were the exact pads I found from this post waaaaaaay back in this thread.

They should be with me before Friday.

I want to get wood cups done as well like LCD-2s but I'm afraid $450 for Rosewood + $100 roundtrip shipping will NOT be happening anytime soon.
