View Full Discussion I mentioned before that I had rattling and suggested that maybe these cans need burn in time or the sample I listened to was bad, but someone on Headfi posted this link and I don't have any rattling in the left ear cup with these frequency tests:
But when I compare it to this Youtube sine wave I do
Youtube is not a good source for audio test files. Download FLACs or go to a website which is purpose built for frequency testing.
This youtube video has some weird sounds in the source which are apparent on all headphones. If you think a problem is source related it can be good to try different cans.
youtube is a terrible source for doing headphone tests. sound quality is already degraded due to compression so you get distortion and other sonic issues. sonic problems can be simply due to bad sonic quality of the source files on youtube, so youtube will not really show you if your headphones have issues. also, whether there are actual sonic changes due to burn in is debatable and has never been proven in any scientific study.
That's just an audio artifact. Good link to troll people into thinking their headphones are faulty though.
Hi. Yes I know hence why the rattle doesn't appear with my FLAC, m4a. It could be clipping that people are experiencing, but I am happy with my cans now after getting some reassurance from the Gurus at Headfi.org. Cheers
