ATH-M50 making creaking noises?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I got my ATH-M50's not too long ago and I have started to notice a really annoying PHYSICAL creaking noise. It is not from the music/sound but it is from the pin that makes the earcup go up and down (not the one that goes side to side). I am not sure what I should do to get rid of the noise, (Lubing, o-ring, etc.)

Thanks.

I say lubricate it first, and if it doesn't get better, contact audio technica for a possible replacement.

It takes a long time but after a few months of use it should go away for the most part. As a previous owner, yes. This was my biggest gripe. The creaking is minor but drove me up the wall. I tried tinkering with screwdrivers but ultimately it just kinda went away after awhile.
Be patient

Ok after further inspection, I think the culprit is the swivel to side hinge-thing. But I will be patient remembering that it will be worth it and that it won't kill me. Thanks guys! This seems like a friendly community!
