When listening to my HD600 I get some cracking noise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

When listening to my HD600 on my old Marantz amplifier I get this cracking sometimes in the left ear.

Could my headphones be broken or is it the amp?

How can I check it?

Check for hair on the driver.

Can you try a different set of headphones to see if you still get the noise?

 

If no noise with different cans, follow Fearless1's advice and check for a stray hair on the driver.

But is there a chance they might be blown?

I suppose there may be a chance it's the cans, but I would first suspect it's the old Marantz. Try listening with the mono button pushed in, just to see if the noise stops.

 

Last year I bought a late 70's Marantz 2226B and it sometimes had a slight crackling noise in one channel. I sent it off for repair and it's sounded great since then.

 

YMMV.
