Have you try washing them??

Like I already said many times, my X1 doesn`t bleed and I have removed and washed also my pads and still no issues with ink or dye.

Guess I just got the "lucky batch".

Why do you keep repeating it "many times" then? The more times you say it doesn't count for more of a sample size, you still only have 1 pair of X1s... Clearly there are lots of people with ink bleeding, it's not some kind of conspiracy theory as you seem to be making it out to be.

Hey fellow member, sorry if my posts bother You, I was noting it out again to be clear that even with washing my X1 doesn`t bleed ink or dye. This thread is quite old already and most of the thread there is no mention of that bleed issue, until lately because X2 have stirred this problem up and still only few ppl have mentioned this issue in this thread. Some ppl seem to using hair gel or other stuff on their head which causes this problem ...but I`m not claiming it to be the cause of all those beel issues neither.

I've had mine for a few years now. They haven't bled ink since the first month I got them! (once I learned to put them on their stand and to not to leave them on white paper lol). So yeah, mine bleed ink as well if I left on something white, but they don't bleed onto my head as far as I can tell, and I'm still alive, and they sound friggin' great, so it's really not an issue for me.

If I leave the headphones on a paper surface they will leave small stains on the paper.  So I stopped doing that.  It's really not a big deal but a minor annoyance.  I have not washed the pads because I have no intentions of taking them off, at least no time soon. The performance of the headphones is great and more than makes up for this minor annoyance.

Hi Guys,

I replaced the stock cable with this cable. It definately helped.

As for these cans I can't reccomend them more than enough. I picked one up after reading reviews for a while and they stand true to their name. They are awesome.

I replaced my philips audio cable with the basic Anker® 3.5mm Premium Auxiliary Audio Cable and that fixed the cable problem. $5 shipped was also the cheapest cable on ebay, that wasn't shipped from china.

Yeah, a new cable helped mine too. I bought a Chinese made one, but I chose it cuz it's built well (I've gotten a cable from that supplier for a different headphone) and because it has a screw-on adapter for 1/4" jacks.
