Windows 7: Sennheiser PC 350 Problem? Win 7?

Sennheiser PC 350 Problem? Win 7?

Does anyone have issues with audio on their headsets? What I mean is I just bought a Sennheiser PC 350, and I have a weird audio problem that is pretty annoying on my left earpiece. Whenever I tap or rub up against the wire connecting to my left earpiece is get a loud tapping or rubbing noise played into my ear, like I'm wearing a stethoscope. If I tap on the wire behind the mute/volume control box on the headset it doesn't make any noise, only on the part from the mute/volume control box and wire leading up to my headphones. Is there anyway to fix this issue?

don't tap or rub above the mute/volume control.

take it back if they are new.

I've got a 6 year old pair of Sennheiser PC135 USB that I use daily and don't experience what you are.

You could take it back and get another to test out or borrow another headset to see if that is the problem. Sounds to me like it is the headphones, not W7. Or you could as Zepher recomended :)

I just asked my friend and he said he has the same problem with his headset, I think it just might be a general problem with circumaural headphones. It's the same effect as when you put your ear flat on a table and tap on the same table, because sound travels better through solids then it does through the air so the noise is amplified. I'm not sure if there is a way to fix it or not but I get that effect on my headphones, even the slightest movement causes the cord that is hanging down towards the ground to rub up against my chair and make a scratching noise that is amplified into my ear, and it's pretty annoying, but I'll probably eventually get used to it.
