After a few days they started audibly crinkling in both ears. Wondering if this happened to anybody else?
Sometimes planar drivers will crinkle in colder weather, it's harmless. I've had this happen with many of the planars I've owned.
Strange, it's really annoying. Any idea what causes it or how to alleviate it?
The crinkling is caused by unproperly tensioned diaphragms, manafacturing defect unfortunately
Sent them in for replacement. Really hope the next pair functions correctly. I honestly prefer them significantly to my 6XX.
Yeah it's a shame, planars sound really good but they can't match the reliability of dynamics
Me too, but I am hoping it us just a burn in thing
I didn’t “properly” burn in the first pair so I’m considering when I get the replacement playing white noise or whatever for a few days. Most likely won’t make a difference but 🤷♂️
I believe in burn in. I actually have witnessed it 1st hand while processing was happening. Some say our ears and brain are actually adjusting to the sound. I am a true believer in headphone burn in. Its a real thing that happens after 50 hours or so.
Burn-in is unquestionably real, though if anything the crinkling will get worse with burn in
