I have a non mic black/grey Vmoda cable awesome for what it is,

but I would like to know how is the mic quality on this one?

 

LOL...whichever headphone I go out with gets the black three button V-MODA mic cable and the the one at home gets the single button Orange one.  The cable on the 7520 is horrific, so I just mix and match.  Mic works great the few times I've used it and no complaints on the other end either.  I've got the boom mic pro as well for when I game for even more clarity (allegedly).

Ha!  I think it's perfect!   Long, coiled so it doesn't get under your feet, strong, great plug adapter, and included with the headphone!

Maybe a little too capacitive. With some amps can start self-oscillation

.

that would be a really poor amp design if it went into oscillation

Why are there crackles in quiet parts of celestial annihilation by UNKLE? This is on Spotify, is there a problem with the drivers, or are the headphones picking up a mastering flaw, transfer?

I don't care for the coiled cable, but the headphone is very neutral. The bass can sometimes be too inpactful.

You are probably hearing flaws in the recording, the 7520 is very revealing.

 

If it is the driver though, there might be dirt or maybe a hair on the driver, see if you can see any obvious dirt on it and try to gently clean it.

I just gave it a listen, the "crackles" you are talking about are intentional, this is the vinyl sound effect.

 

Have you ever listened to vinyl records? those crackles used to be the result of dust picked up by the needle on spinning vinyl record.

This sound effect is widely used by electronic musicians today to give this kind of nostalgic effect to their music.... nothing wrong with your driver or Spotify.

Thanks, OT the swivel on the left cup has started creaking a little. Is there a way to spray some silicone in there, without taking it apart?, as it's not the cup which is creaking.

The squeaking sounds is a common minor problem with the Sony,

The best way to get rid of it once and for all is to use a viscous lubricant non petroleum based (silicon lube or synthetic grease) and apply it inside the joints in the cups.

This topic was already discussed in depth in this thread with explanations and pics, give it a look.

 

Yes you will have to open them but its nothing too difficult to do.

The sqeakings is an internal issue so I doubt you could resolve it from the outside.

You might find it still creaks after lubricating though. Mine still does, even after I applied some lithium grease to it. I think I might have localized that particular problem, but can't really think of a way to fix it. It's where the headband meets the attachment to the cups. There is a little bit of leeway there, but the screw already appears to be at it's tightest setting, so I don't see how I can tighten it up more. Maybe I could fill the gap with something, like a piece of paper, but I do believe that's the culprit and fixing that will probably get rid of the creaking forever.

Yes, it's a gem, common creaking aside. With mine it's not too bad, and only really happens if i eat while listening.

This HP sometimes feels like you are meeting an old friend out of the blue get a beer together and have a blast.

Every now end then you ear a track on these and get this feeling like "oh boy I didn't think this could sound this good, everything is just in place tight and all.."

It's not like they don't sound good all the time but sometimes it just surpass itself  :basshead:.
