Just recieved a pair of qc15's after the first use the right ear cup will crackle intermittantly, building up then dropping out, it does it randomly


It's the EQ of your ipod or itunes that is tripping them up. Apparently there is a 'perfect' EQ to run them on but I'm not familiar with it. Running them with the EQ 'flat' should fix the problem. Hope this helps...

Sennheiser HD 205 crackle when listening to music


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.
  2. Click Adjust visual effects. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Visual Effects tab, click Adjust for best performance, and then click OK.

MY sennheiser 205 headphones stopped working overnight. I can hear everything fine, the only thing is that i can barely hear the vocals. I did switch devices to see if that was the problem and it was not....


1) You are turning up the volume too much. Headphones, especially non-top of the line headphones, are not meant to be listened to at very loud levels. In this case, the crackling you are hearing is the speaker trying to reproduce a bass sound that is "clipping", or exceeding the maximum output level for that system. Remember - headphone speakers are very small; they have a harder time producing low sounds accurately. The solution is to just turn them down a little.
2) Assuming problem 1 is not the problem, the other likely issue is that they came with some sort of mechanical defect built in. If you are not playing them loudly, but you are still getting a crackle, especially if it is only on one speaker, they probably are broken. It is probably the jack itself, or the wiring leading up to the earpieces. Either way, it is not a terribly hard fix if you have some electrical know-how, but if you don't, there are plenty of people who can rewire them for much cheaper than it would be to buy a new set. However, if this has been happening since you got them, I would call the manufacturer first and see if they will replace them. Sennheiser tends to pride themselves in the quality of their equipment, so I would not be surprised if they sent you a replacement set.
Hope this helps!

There are two likely causes for this. One is much, much easier to fix than the other.

Crackling sound


Have you tried some headphones directly into the headphones socket? Does the sound still crackle? Usually 'crackle' is associated with dodgy leads and you will be able to hear the lead responding to movement by crackling more, a hissy sound often means that there is a fault with the socket and sometimes removing and reconnecting the jack into the socket a few times will help this. If it sounds like hiss with little pops it's usually electrical interference and could mean a bad earthing in the circuit somewhere
