I bought a pair of ATH m50's 3 months ago after reading through various forums and deciding they were the best choice. I loved them until recently when I noticed that some cracking occurs in only the right ear when a deep bass is being played. I assumed it was a faulty driver or something like that because it fades in and out. I have taken good care of them so I don't think that they are damaged that way. However to add onto that, if I press down on that earphone the case squeaks. Is this just faulty headphones or damage to them directly? Would something like this get progressively worse or is there something I can do to stop it? I am posting here because I don't know where else I could get help with this but it looks like something I will just have to deal with.
