Hi,

 

I actually posted about that a month or so ago in this thread (13th June to be precise). Yes they are glued on but I still peeled them off just to see how the pads were actually connected to the driver housing. The glue was still sticky enough to put back on.

And they are still alive without a scratch...?

I got a strange thing with the Fidelio X1. The sound is great, however it feels like the left earcup puts out more air than the right one? It kinda irritates me since it really bothers when listening. Like something the air is costantly beating against my left ear. Anybody have any idea what it can be? The sound on both the left and the right are exactly the same.. Is it just my weird left ear (dunno if I have that, lol) or could it be a fault in the headphone?

It's the driver cover. The cloth is tickling your ear, right? It's normal. One ear is larger than the other (none of us are perfectly symmetrical). It may also be more sensitive than the other ear.

I've owned two X1s, both with the same thing. I've resigned myself into believing it's my ears, not the X1. Because I've done frequency sweeps, and both sides are near perfect in balance.

Is it tickling your ear?  If so, then bass could be making the left driver cover vibrate and touch your left ear.  If your left ear is bigger than your right, that would make sense.

 

If your just talking about air, I have no idea.

 

Edit: Damn you MLE!!

Yeah it's tickling my ear, pretty weird and annoying feeling. I hope I can get used to it since I really really like the soundsignature. With bass heavy music at high volumes it gets pretty bothersome.

You can probably modify/remove the piece of cloth that's vibrating to get rid of the tickle.

I'm too big a chicken to do something like that. But just in case I would want to try it. How would one modify them?

post #2515 of 4958

I haven't done it myself, but read my posts on this page to get an idea.

That being said, my X1 no longer has that problem. Either my ear got desensitized to the sensation, or it went away on it's own, but it no longer happens. You can ask chico, it was bothering me too, to the point of ordering the replacement and noticing it had it too.

Tried to make the cloth a bit looser but that was the worst idea possible, now it's even worse haha. I think I'll get used to it eventually.

post #2518 of 4958
Yeah, I think the idea was to tight it up to keep the bass from making it flap. XD
post #2519 of 4958

Yep, I read that one complety wrong tongue.gif

post #2520 of 4958

Well, the cloth is like a drum head - so I imagined that loosening it would make it no longer vibrate. 

 

How did you loosen it?  And why is it worse?
