I was talking to someone else who I got a recommendation for these headphones from, and I can't say I regret buying them. Well, except for the issues I've encountered, which I feel might have something to do with the fact that I bought these used from Amazon (not that used headphones are a bad thing, just this pair). When I put on the headphones, I can hear the diaphragms inside crinkling. It doesn't cause any undesirable sound, but it's been a bugbear that has caused me some concern. Diaphragms usually pop back into place, and I suspect these are, but to have to hear it is putting me off and leaving some cause for concern. After all, what if they don't pop back into place?
Second - and this problem is far worse - is the audio cutting out. I suspect this has something to do with the MMCX connectors, as despite how much elbow grease it takes to connect and remove them, they feel remarkably loose. They can twist fluidly in the sockets, and that has led me to believe that maybe they aren't as tight as they should be. I was listening to "Dani California" by Red Hot Chili Peppers and it cut out at multiple occasions. Not once has this issue ever repeated itself with my other pair of headphones or my IEMs.
Is this sort of thing normal? Even if it is, I find the effects undesirable and I'm probably going to RMA these, and get either a replacement or a different pair entirely. I'm just curious if this issue can be addressed, or if I won't get lol'd at for trying to RMA something I'm unhappy with.
