Saw this posted before but was out of stock. Back in stock.
I ordered one last time these went on sale( A$203) and the unit I received looked flawless… I used them for a couple of days and noticed a cracking/knocking noise coming from left side when I turned my head slightly in any direction … Not too sure if it is a faulty headset or not …have spoken to Sony support and they kept asking me to update the software (which was ready up to date) ..finally I told them that they need to read my email properly as the software is already updated and this seems more like a mechanical issue …they asked if I would want a refund or replacement… I went for replacement…going to ship the item back on Monday..let's see how this goes !
Has anyone else faced similar issue ?
Had the same exact issue when I bought a pair brand new in store…got a replacement and haven't had the issue on the new pair
I am hoping the replacement unit would solve the issue. !
My headphones were purchased brand new and have been used for over a year. It has since developed an intermittent crackling sound in the left ear. I have contacted Sony who was happy to review my issue. However, I've misplaced my Tax invoice :(
Seems to be a common issue with these headphones…
Misplacing your tax invoice is a common issue with the headphones? They are more powerful than I ever imagined. Seriously though, that sucks. I assume you have contacted the original seller and asked for a duplicate invoice?
The crackling sound is a common issue mate.
Other than that, they're good headphones.
Can't they use your bank statement ??
for those out of warranty apparently putting a small pack of silica gel in the can with the issues is a makeshiftsolution.
missing duct tape though ?
I bought one of the $203 stock as well. It was basically brand new. Not a mark on it. And it works perfectly. One of the best deals I've followed through with on this site.
it would be the hinge but more precisely the plastic casing/parts around that general area. some ppl have had success in applying a lube the area which would have to be plastic friendly, others have reported micro cracking and eventual failure. mine started doing it after 8 months. I returned mine since they were not 100% to my expectations but they were nice headphones.
How is Sony when it comes to returns anyway?
Well, I will find out in a few days ! It wasn't easy to get them to a point where they would be glad to replace the cans !
Alright …so I received a replacement unit today ! Turns out they sent me a brand new unit ! So I have decided to keep it :) .
Yeah ordered one from the last deal at around $200 and been using daily no problems. Arrived in 100% cosmetic condition, smells new, the muffs are new and no marks. Had to update firmware though
Jack for non-electronic use?
Headphone jack? Yes you can use it without power but it won’t be high res audio and no noise cancelling… (basically for emergencies). It’s recommended to always be on
Big difference between the 4 (~$390) and the 3. To someone who has had both, is the higher price worth it?
Nevermind, got some good ideas from here.
