Question about Grado SR-225 Consumer Headphones
I like to listen to my music loud, and when nearing top volume my 225s have developed a crackling noise/ distortion, that they have not done before. They have maintained superb clarity before but now sound lie they cant cope with the volume. They are under a year old. Any ideas? Thanks Jon
There are two solutions. If you are using an phone that is 12 months or older, then it is possible that the headphine jack has debri - fibres etc in the socket. Take a cotton bud, remove the cotton and make a lint roll using celotape the sticky side out. A bent paperclip also works but take care.
The second option is a problem with the diaphram in the Grados. Remove the foam cover and alertnate blowing and sucking hard. If this dopesn't work take a hairdryer and blow hot air but not too close for around 15 seconds. This will help remove any creases in the diaphram. Grados are extremely robust, so don't be afraid, particulalry if you think they are damaged anyway.
Mine have survived the above and more which has resolved both a rattle and hiss.
