Hello !

I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser HD590's. They sounded great, untill today.

Yesterday my younger brother came in and knocked the headphones off my head. They then fell about four feet onto a hardwoord floor.

Since I couldn't see (or hear) any damage, life went on normally.

But today while I was listening to Beethovan, I noticed that the right side buzzes just slightly. I did several tests, playing different types of music and different volume levels.

Yes, the right ear does buzz. I have to turn the volume up a little higher than normal to really hear it, but it's only in the right ear so I know it's not normal.

Any ideas ?? I am sure it would take a volume level much higher than normal to damage the headphones. Also I would think that the headphones should be able to take little abuse.

Any input is appreciated,
-Ionixus

Sounds like the diaphragms been crumpled...

I'm not sure if the bionetic Senns are as easily changeable as the older HD5x5 breed, but if you can get to the driver, i bet you'll see some damage there... with some patience it is fixable, but if it is crumpled, you're probably better off buying a replacement element...

You should consider crumpling up your little brother, too.

If they're new, return them, or have Sennheiser fix them.
