Uhh I feel like that's a safe assumption. Contact HiFiMAN.

My RE400 shocks my ears when the cable catches static, no sure about the crackling noise.  Otherwise it sounds just fine.  I contacted Hifiman and they said it's not a defect.

ESD is a common with most earphones, especially when you wear them under your jacket (too much rubbing = static). It's usually just with the cable, but having metal housing just makes it worse.

 

With that said, I heard it's pretty harmless to earphones/headphones. Though I'm not sure the same could be said to the thing it's connected to.

Just got my Re-400 A in.

 

noticed the cable is no longer braided, not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing.

 

sound great btw :D
