unfortunately most of you are wrong. It is not a source issue, an amplification issue nor a media file and or bitrate issue. The xba line if BA drivers all have that issue. Ive researched this myself and even spoke to a sony rep who said the same thing. They are getting warranties in for the xba line like crazy. My xba-1 and 3's both had loud clicking noises as if they were blown right after unboxing. Appearently this happens when the BA reaches its limitation in reproducing sound at certain volumes. I told sony i dont want a new set i want the h3's for replacement. I dont feel i should have to keep warrantying my $300 headset because of a design flaw in there BA drivers.
