I have a pair of Skullcrushers, and they are a huge disappointment. When they actually vibrate they are great, but it seems like only certain songs at certain points hit the right frequency or something to make them do this. Most of the time it's just noise (static distortion thing) with tiny bits of vibration (can only feel with hands), but on certain parts of songs its very nice and vibrates perfectly (how I expected them to be at all times).
Stuff I've tried:
- FiiO amp, every equalizer it has at full blast, low volume and in between
- Less vibration on the actual headphones (max proves to be the best)
- Bass equalizer on Windows 7 on/off (not much difference)
- Bare bones headphones
- Bass boosted songs / boosting my own
- Multiple computers and devices
- Increased/decreased sound quality in volume settings (16 bit 44100 to 24 bit 192000 Hz)
I have tried mixing and matching these to find one that works, but it does nothing really.
The amp just seems to increase the volume, which is good for when I boost songs so I can hear it. However, boosting does nothing but increase the vibration slightly to what I can already feel, also increasing the distortion of the parts that are just noise, which I assume is clipped bass.
What is the problem? Is this normal? Do you understand what I'm talking about? Are these headphones garbage? I'm just throwing money so I can listen to my music, but I'm not going to buy $300 headphones for this exact same issue.
At about 0:01 to about 0:03 is perfect (and the parts that are exactly like that throughout the song), but the rest is absolute clipped distorted static noise garbage. I don't know if this is meant to be like this, but it sounds horrible. I want to know if it's the song, my headphones, my computer, or something else.
Thanks to anyone who helps in advance.
