Help may have blown set of Corsair SP2500 !!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

Decided to invest in some mid-fi Corsair SP2500's

 

So far them I've paired them with my MacBook Pro and my lossless iTunes collection.

 

Ive got a Fiio E07k on its way in the post as well.

 

Anyway today, after being very impressed with the sound of the speakers, I decided to unplug them and try them with my iPhone.

 

As I was plugging them back into my Mac, and unaware that they were at full volume, they made a VERY loud buzzing/humming sound that happens when an audio cable comes into contact with anything metallic.

 

I thought this may have damaged them somewhat so decided to test this out.

 

Sure enough, when I increase the volume using the remote, this is now accompanied by a rattling sound. Im pretty sure this wasn't apparent before, doubt I am imagining it.

 

Also, when listening to soft female vocals at a moderately loud volume,  I noticed a distortion that I am almost certain was not present before.

 

Can someone confirm that this is symptomatic of a blown/damaged mid / tweeter or am I  imagining the whole thing ?

 

Thanks for your help guys
