Yamaha HPH 200 buzzing / crackling

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I've just bought a pair of Yamaha HPH 200 and I'm happy with them as long as the right cup doesn't buzz with the deep bass. In some of the bass tests I've found that there is a buzz at about 160Hz and 70Hz on right channel.

I also notice that while listening to LAURA FYGI - How Insensitive . The resonance cretes a disturbing sound and I notice it at the first minute of the song and only on right cup.

 

Can any owners of the model please listen to the song and check it ?

There are some other songs where I can hear the same buzz too but the entrance of PSY - Gangnam-Style is where I can hear it most. 

 

 

I have swithched the right and left side and also have listened with one ear only but I hear the buzz always on right channel.

They are new and I think they cannot have a dust inside to buzz and crackle with the bass.

I checked with torch and there is no visible hair or another particle inside.

 

I have also listened the same songs with AKG K240 Sextett and Shure SRH440 and there was no buzz / crackling sound.

 

I also wonder how they compare to Ultrasone HFI 2200 ULE or HFI 2400 . 

 

Thanks for the replies in advance.

I'm no expert or anything, but maybe the voice coil lifted off the diaphragm slightly?

Am sorry, I don't know what the uploader of this video did to the sound but it's terrible quality, bad, really really bad. In general youtube - you never know how often re-compressed the sound is. So yes, the bass is a mess, I checked with different headphones and they all sound bad.

 

try this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EsESjwORs8 

same song but very different sounding you can suddenly hear instruments properly.

 

But I didn't hear any buzz on the Yamaha's, just bad sound and some garbled up bass rumble...

 

Hope this helps,

K

 

P.S.: don't use youtube to listen to music, youtube always has to take already compressed music and compress it again, so the music on youtube is always worse because they don't start with a lossless format but a lossy one.

Thank you for your help

Can you also listen to PSY - Gangnam-Style with HPH 200 please ? I hear the buzz within the first 10 seconds just when the song begins with sub bass. I have heard it when I listened from PC and also when I listtened with mp3 player too but never heard it when I listened with SRH440 and K240. 

 

By the way do you think that Ultrasone HFI 2400 is worth buying while I have HPH 200 and SRH 440 ?

Can do tomorrow in the office.

 

For the Ultrasone, well, hard to say. I wouldn't say it's worth it, even though I really like my Pro750.

 

Cheers,

I can buy HFI 2200 ULE whihc is identical to HFI 2400 for 40 euros in like new condition. But I still cannot decide. I like it to hear the mids in music. Even if it has great bass, it is mentioned that the mids are suppressed by the bass by many headfiers. 

So I am doubtful if I will like them while I like the sound signature of Sextett for many genres else than electronic music.

 

So do you think that they are worth trying for 40 euros in mint condition. I am doubtful only because I'll have to pay 15 euros for shipping.

Really hard to say, I tested the Pro2900 some year ago, can't really recollect the sound, it was good but not as much as I "wanted" it.
