My HD58X distorts on some pitches. Defective?

more_vert
Hi, I’ve got a pair of HD58X driven by my RME Babyface Pro FS audio interface and the sound seems to distort on some songs like Impasse by Angel Olsen at 4:23 or Lucky Man by Laura Mvula at 0:10. Are my headphones defective? Thanks.

I would make sure that u have burnt them in. I had slight distortion on some songs when I first got them. I would let them run for 50 to 60 hrs and see if that fixes the problem. That did the trick for me, now they sound great.

Yeah, you’re right, the time stamp is wrong. It’s 2:48 for Impasse. It vibrates a lot, I dunno how to describe it. Anyway, I’ll follow your advice.
