Just got a pair of them at guitar center. Plugged them directly into my laptop and every song clicks and pops and distorts if I turn it up to 60% or 70%. Sometimes even 50%. In addition, I can only hear parts of songs, like only the backup vocals and lead guitar and drums disappear for parts of songs, etc. What is wrong??? Do I need to burn them in? Are there settings on my dell that I need to configure to get the ATH's working right? I am using the onboard HD sound driver that came with my laptop. I know it is not very good, and I am getting a focusrite 2i2 to drive the headphones in the future. I use them for mixing hip hop music, but so far on youtube, my own .wav tracks, and even spotify all songs do not sound right...
