Hello, today I was using my headphones, watching netflix, when suddenly the sound got quiet and distorted. My headphones is a razer kraken pro. I am really confused because I've had these for just over a year, and have worked perfectly fine. I am also confused because I didn't pull them out on accident or bump it or anything like that. Just sitting still and distorted sound all of a sudden. I really love these headphones, but I hope this is just an easy fix. Please help.

Edit: just found out that If i put it on only right or only left, sound comes out fine, mic doesn't work though.

Test it on another device to make sure it is the headphones first.

If it persists, it sounds like a short in the headphones.

Don't buy gamer headsets :)
