Any one see any Black Friday deals on Focal MG's?
Here in Austria / Germany there is a Black Friday deal for less than 1200 €, I am considering if I should buy it.

Hey everyone,

I have a Focal clear pro (without MG and it is red).
I have a small a problem these two days, I found when shaking a headphone or put it on then turning my head left and right (another kind of shaking), a small noise comes from my left driver, sounds like one part inside didnt screw well or tightly, like some small piece didnt fit and keeping shaking inside.

Anyone met that before, how can I fix that, it is so annoying, I can not ignore the small sound
Thanks

Ryan

The Clears are prone to creak a little, but there should of course not be anything loose inside.
I just shook mine and when I hold them by the headband there's some rattling, but when I hold them by the earcups + yokes and shake, I can just hear a little rattling in the headband, but none in the earcups.
Try that, and if nothing rattles inside the cup chances are that the noise you are hearing is coming from standard play in the components.

Check the flame. Those emblems were loose on my pair. Bit of glue fixed the issue for me.

I had a rattle like that, it was a wire out of groove that was causing it. Pretty easy to fix, you just need to open the shell, reposition the wire, and reassemble.

Thank you everyone~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I decide to open it and check the wire
May I ask how to open the shell? it is from outside to loose the three little screws or from inside to remove the pad and screws?

This is how the rattle sounds like

Yeah, that pretty much sounds like a loose wire. You need to remove the pad, unscrew six tiny torx screws and the shell will open. Not sure about the size of those little screws, though. Reposition the wire, put everything back together.

Just checked: it's T6.
