new x1 fidelio rattles with deep bass and high volume

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

hello

 

bought this headphone last week and i didn't notice anything playing everything at max volume till one day i came across this website for testing headphones 

http://www.audiocheck.net/soundtests_headphones.php

 

i tried a test called bass shaker on pc with my headphones connected to denon avr-1611 .. while i was increasing the volume i heard a rattle in the right speaker ( at very high volumes ) i increased the volume by 5-7 db and i started to hear it also in the left speaker .. the rattle is just heard in the 1st 5 second of the test

 

i tried the test on my ipad and mobile but i didn't hear the rattle at all .. instead may be a very low volume ( not noticeable ) buzz in the right speaker

 

so i went to a friend of mine to test his x1 too .. and this time the rattle started in his left speaker 1st and on increasing the volume it appeared also in the right speaker

 

soooo what do you think ?!!!! 

i think i pushed the headphones to the limit by this synthetic benchmark .. also i would like to mention that a grado s80i and a sennheiser hd202 did not produce such rattle and their sound was consistent inspite of the high volume

 

so i would be happy if you share opinions and ideas with me .. specially if you have x1 fidelio headphones and you can simulate the conditions .. you don't have to own a denon avr and you can use any amp unit on max or very high volume

 

you will help me very much by your trials as i still can send the headphones for a replacement but i live in india so i will pay shipping and taxes to UK forward and back

 

note : heavy bass mp3 songs and games and movies play flawlessly at very high volumes except in one scene in the conjuring movie where was a deep low rising bass the right speaker rattled for a fraction of second

Return it, get a new one. It's defective.
