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.

You may have blown the speakers by playing too loud. Try listening with a pair of quality headphones. If the sound is clear through them - then the speakers are most likely the problem.

If the crackling occurs only when opening windows or another program, the crackling is not due to the headphones but to a lack of CPU resources in your computer settings.
If you are in Windows 7,
  1. click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then click Control Panel. In the search box, type Performance Information and Tools, and then, in the list of results, click Performance Information and Tools.

try hooking headphones to the output and see if the crackling is still there.

then, try it with the speakers, at a lower computer voume level and higher speaker volume level. perhaps the headphone output is too loud and distorting in the speaker inputs.

Crackling noise from subwoofer!


If ayou have a system with speakers that works and a different set is crackling
the set that crackles is to be determined the bad set. Cones dry up a bad assembley just coinsidents having a bad set of speakers. It is an AUDIO problem not a computer problem
