The cables that run to the earpads are a little loose. This, in and of itself, isn't much of a nuisance, but when I move my head the cables shift and I can hear a clicking noise as they jiggle around.

Is this normal? The sound is stellar, but the intermittent clicking can be a little unnerving. I often don't notice it, but when I do, I can't stop draw my attention away from it.

Am I not making any sense? I hate it when the ratio of views to replies is infinite.

Thanks for the heads up. My search didn't reveal anything, but that's pretty close to what I was looking for.

I suppose I'll relax now.

So you can relax a bit more. You can try and open the earcups in order to secure the cable using a plastic tie or some sort of adhesive. There's some related info at www.headwize.com, in the "Grado Mods" section. Ciao ragazzo.
