Hey, I'm experiencing a annoying popping/crackling sound on certain songs and wondered if anyone else had the same issue. To give an example, I'm currently listening to the new Watchmen TV series soundtrack by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross on Spotify, picking one particular song "Absent Friends and Old Ghosts", just over a minute in this sound get progressively worse, it's very crackly. It's not the only song but a good one to use for this example. The crackle sound isn't part of the music, I've listened to the same song on Bose' Soundsport earbuds and my home Harman / Kardon system so it's definitely the earbuds. I've adjusted the EQ to reduce bass and still the same issue.
This is my 2nd pair now after a pairing issue with the left earbud and noticed the same issue on that pair too but less so.
I've ordered one more pair but fear I may have to send both back as faulty as it's a really off putting sound, almost as if they can't handle it.
Any help would be appreciated. Hoping the new pair do not have the same problem, curious to know if others can test this particular track and see if yours does the same?
