I have recently purchased a pair of AKG k712s and the Star Wars:The Music of Star Wars: 30th Anniversary soundtrack still shrinkwrapped from Amazon. My goal is to listen to loss-less files with these headphones since I have been told they are sensitive to the source of the music. After acquiring the soundtrack, I used Foobar2000 with Exact Audio Copy (EAC) software to rip FLAC files from the CDs.
However, once I started listening to the music, I have noticed static from most of the songs, some of it mild, but other times very loud which distracts me from the song. I am fairly new to ripping CDs, so I am hoping I committed an error during the ripping process. I do remember the AccurateRip add-on with Foobar2000 reporting inaccuracies for most of the songs, but I read that was normal so I ignored it at the time.
So, is there anyway for me to identify the cause of the static from these songs? Or should I just start over, find a proper guide on using Foobar2000, and rip the CDs again? I have also read that it could mean that the CDs are scratched. I hope that is not the case as I looked forward to listening to the Star Wars Soundtrack very much.
