So Im still wondering about the rattle. If I use test tones and notice the rattle, is that a defect of the headphone? They say if I hear a rattle during normal listening volume while listening to music, then thats a defect...
So in other words, these headphones were not meant to be pushed beyond a certain threshold? Im fine by it but I would like more detailed info about how the drivers in the K7XX work or if the test tones are bogus?
I dont hear any rattling while listening to music but when i use the bass shaker test tone, and have the fiio e11 set to 6 o clock, it rattles, but when i play a game or music, it doesnt rattle, well I havent played any songs that are bass heavy that hit very low within the 10hz or 20hz...
Can someone enlighten me as to what really is going on?
summary of many other responses:
- any headphone will rattle if you play them loud enough
- playing those test tones is not representative of listening to actual music/games/whatever... those low frequencies are almost never heard in a sustained manner outside of test tones, so you're much more likely hear rattling by using them
- do you ever listen to music/games/whatever with your E11 set to 6 o clock (i.e. do you consider this level of volume to be within "normal listening volume"?)? if not, then stop worrying and enjoy your headphones
- try listening to some bass heavy music with the volume cranked up to the loudest that you would ever realistically listen to music at.... if you don't hear rattling, then stop worrying and enjoy your headphones
- if you're one of the unlucky few that actually does hear rattling during normal listening volumes, then you can consider contacting Massdrop support for an exchange.
Nice, thats what I really wanted to hear :) lol
I mean I kind of knew this already, I just needed someone on here to clarify what has been said since going through all the pages is pretty hard to find a solid answer.
And yes keeping it at 6 o clock while listening to music and games, I cant hear rattling, so I should be ok then. Also those test tones, I had a feeling someone would say that and in regards to that, it sustain my theory as well.
Thanks again and I am enjoying my headphones :D
Depends whether the rattle is in the headphone or the other electronics. Substituting different headphones/amps/sources, you should be able to isolate it.
