I just happened to play a frequency sweep to see what frequency my headphones could extend to and I noticed a pronounced vibration in the left earpiece which sounds like something in broken in there. I bought these headphones off a person on ebay, what should I do about this?

It may possibly be a normal remnant of regular break-in. My HD600 experienced a little rattle at around 60 hrs of break in, if my memory serves correctly. Give it a little while and see if it goes away. Perhaps play some bass-heavy music to try and help it along.

You can remove the foam pad that protects the driver to see if there's any dirt touching the membrane, and/or open the rear grill (don't know if that's possible – no problem with HD 600); it may very well be just some foreign matter, or a loose vibrating cable.

Proved that despite its huge size the CD3000 can be shoved down one's throat.

Hey Jazz how can you remove the back grill of the HD600? Is it so simple as pulling it like the front pads?
