Hello, I'm new to these forums and I was hoping some of the ATH-M50 owners could identify if this is problem is normal or not.
So I purchased a pair of brand new red limited edition ATH-M50. The sound is phenomenal, but whenever I bend or twist the headband a slight bit, I get this weird crackling/static noise coming from them. It does not effect the performance/sound quality of the headphones, but I'm wondering if it's normal or not. Because if is not normal, I can get a replacement since I'm within the return period. But if it's just the way these things are, then I would just be wasting time.
I uploaded a video demonstrating the problem here:
The strange thing is that I don't ever recall having this problem before, and I had this for about a month. I take very great care of them and the only thing I did wrong was accidentally turning the volume on them too high, but that was only for about 5 seconds.
Hope someone can give me some insight!
