post #4961 of 38370
Is there any easy way to fix crackling in my left speaker of my HD595's? I have the choice between sending it back to where I bought them to get a new pair (Danish laws) or fixing it myself. It's usually the sort of nasty crackling you hear when you hit the volume cap but it's getting reeaaallly bad

If its getting progressively worse you might have a torn driver. Only thing we can really suggest is disconnecting and reconnecting the cable to the actual headphones [from the driver, not from the source.

But if it's distortion progresses when not moving, just naturally, sounds like its going out.

sounds like there's a good chance the driver is blown, or going so I'd say send them back. Before you do you can open them up to make sure the cable hasn't been pulled out or that there isn't a short in the cable.

It's Official(tm)!

I'm keeping the Havana DAC that MHDT Labs sent me for review:

...



...



They didn't go for my "you donate and I donate" bit ...

But they did say I can pay it off as I was able and that there were no pressures or time limits.

Great deal if you ask me ... especially since I'm getting it at a discounted price and especially since it's a whole other order of DAC in regards to sound quality than is the Paradisea+ (which I still love but which simply can't compete with non-OPAMP design and dual Burr Brown PCM56P DACs that the Havana features).

...

FYI ...

Here's some comments I posted via PM to a Head-fi.org friend who is selling his Paradisea+ so as to buy a Havana:

Wow man.

Your gonna freak at the difference between the Paradisea+ and the Havana!

I've spent a lot of time today doing very quick switch A/B listens between the Paradisea+ and the Havana and it's unbelievable how narrow, soft, blurry and veiled the Paradisea+ sounds in direct comparison with the Havana.

That's certainly not a comment meant to diss on the Paradisea because it's certainly not that ... but rather, I mean to say that the Havana does indeed sound appropriate for it's 900.00 price tag while the also very fine sounding Paradisea+ is quite well suited to it's lesser cost of 600.00.

Both great DACs and both are an insane value ... but the Havana indeed takes it to a whole other level.

BTW: I did the test listening using the Bendix 6385 in both DACs.

What's insane is that I really didn't think a DAC could get too much better than the Paradisea ... having no benchmark or otherwise to compare it too.

But man ...

The Havana is near crystalline in clarity compared to the Paradisea+!

Soundstage is much better ... and, as is so often mentioned with the recabling of Senn HD650's ... it's like a thick woolen curtain (or, "veil") between myself and the music had been suddenly raised once I switched over to the Havana during the test listens.

I wish you could keep your Paradisea for direct A/B listening ... cause it's rather astonishing.

The differences between the Paradisea+ and Havana, though evident in all sorts of music, were nonetheless most hugely apparent when listening to quiet bits like mello solo piano work or otherwise delicately produced and communicated music ... it was like instant x2 in presence, detail and soundstage once switched to the Havana.

That difference, again, is quite noticeable in all types of music ... but for the softer, more delicate bits where levels sometimes sink down near inaudible, ... the accessibility of the instruments and music becomes all the more greater with the Havana.

Anyway ... just a word that its very much worth the wait and extra effort to land the Havana ... especially since MHDT is discontinuing it this year.

Good luck.

Best.

.joel
...

Worthwhile upgrade for sure.

Rock on.
