Are my B&W C5 Headphones broke?

So Ive had the B&W C5s for about a month, and every once and awhile when I'm listening to a song at medium volume my left ear speaker will make random "click" sounds. It seems to happen randomly and on random songs. Does this mean my left driver is busted or what? The headphones still sound great, and the left speaker works; it just makes that click sound sometimes...

Any ideas?

Yep it means there's something wrong with that driver. I could potentially cut out, so I suggest you try to get them replaced. But before you jump into that, try a different audio source.

I'd email either the place you bought them from or B&W about a replacement.

Mine was doing that for a little bit and when I was trying to find out why it was happening one nght it stopped and I haven't noticed it since

But my cable is turning yellow. Has your cable turned yellow? Mine has and I dont work out so sweat isnt an issue i basically just wear them when I feel like listening to good music over my klispch s4i.
