Wasn't sure which forum this should go in because I'm actually not too sure what the problem is. I recently purchased HE-400s along with the Schiit stack. These are my first legit headphones and I've already made more mistakes than would seem possible. My main concern however has arisen twice and I'm wondering: 1) if any damage has been done and 2) what I need to do so it doesn't happen again. On Thursday or Friday, I placed my headphones down and left the room, and upon returning I find that the left can(?) sounds "choppy" and the right one is completely silent. After unplugging my headphones and finding the same problem with my old headphones (to my relief), I replaced my USB wire with another and it was fine. Okay, problem solved... except it happened again today. This time I replaced the replacement wire with the original wire and it started working properly again.
So can anyone enlighten as to what's going on? Also, is this doing any damage to my headphones? Thanks.
