I just got my headphones, and I notice that the sound grittles. I checked on my denon reciever with dvd, and there was no grittle....

Plug back the phones on comp, here is the grittle.

Now, I remember, with the cheap sonys, I didn't hear it. With the speakers, I didn't hear it. WIth the sennheisers, I could hear it some, but with these, it'S oubvious and REALLY annoying. What could it be? What to do?
Crap!When there's bass, it just grits in the left speaker, why?
What can I do?

I have also noticed this grittle with my SR-80s and SBLive. I would blame the sound card before the cans. But in my case the grittle occurs only in some particular songs. IMO output of SBLive quite weak and is not able to handle the power requirements of the grados.
I would be upgrading to a better sound card soon (probabaly a Terratec DMX 6 Fire). Im sure that the grados deserve better source that the crapy SBLive.
BTW is the grittle noticeable at low volumes also?

I have used a cheap wire (but short, like 1 foot) to send the out signal to a harman kardon reciever that my dad had spare. I set the volume of the sound card almost on lowest, all balanced, straight signal, and output to phones with the ampli.

GOD THAT IS COOL.

All the grittle is gone, totally.
All I fear is that this cheap wire cuts some sound quality, but O well...

You should get yourself a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz. I used to have an SB Live and the sound quality is MUCH better now that I have a TBSC.
