I received my replacement unit from amazon yesterday~

In first test with 2nd pair, I still hear very minor distortion (fizzling noise) in the songs I had troubles with first pair. 

 

Then I put it burn in with ipod classic for 24 hours.

 

Now some songs I didnt have trouble of noise with first pair, 2nd pair produces serious fizzling noise like your headphone is blown !

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMJ9G-JjSfE - Skyrim - Tooth and claw - The fizzling noise start from 0:38

 

Another test song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMPSKHC_ddo Harry Potter and the deathly hallows part 2 - Procession 

 

The noise only PRESENTs on Right Side Driver on both pairs.

I have these songs in apple lossless format on my mac, and I edit them with audacity , swap the left and right channel, test it again, and the noise ONLY appears on RIGHT channel.  

 

I suspect the right side driver is created unequally or have design flaw, or the cable that connect left to right might be having quality issue.

 

Guys, please confirm with me that your pair have no issue or have issue like mine.

tried with different amps. no problems here. However I do remember getting irritated with some form of noise before - just couldnt remember if it's just on one side or both. But if i remember it correctly, i switched cables (the one without remote) and it went away.  But then I tried again now with the previous cable and it works fine without noise so im not sure by now

I also tried with different anps w/o problem. But I had switched to the straight cable initially. I will do some critical comparison w/ iphone cable to see if I can replicate the problem after my fiios x5 arrives. Clarity seems good with sansa fuze. Sorry for your frustration. Ipods tried at the store seemed they had less clarity but no distortion. Burn in yielded no big difference...

I've tested mine with the iPod cable and it seems to work fine

Might want to consider your source as the cause of the fizzle. My note 3 does this but only sometimes. I know it's not the headphones since they sound fine with the laptop but for some reason the note 3 gives a fizzle on the left from time to time. I am using I pod cable fwiw.

I need to get a picture of it and post it up.  To me it feels like more than just the leather creased and it feels like there is some give in the structure behind the leather.

I have the same problem with my HTC ONE X, not P7s with HD 485s but from my hifi and laptop no such problems.
