It could be interference or something, maybe they need to be broken in.

Headphones go through a break in process. after a while they will sound fine. I bought a pair of sony extrabass earphones and they had very little low end when i bought them, now they have a lot of low end.

I sometimes get crackles on my earphones when they get hit by some static electricity. Could be the case for you. Is the cable rubbing against anything.

Front or rear audio jacks? I got crackling when using the front jacks on my old case due to the thin poorly shielded wires that most cases use for the front audio.

Have you tried other headphones from the same device or the same headphones from another device with the same music?

 

It could be caused by debris (such as hair) touching the drivers. Headphones do not require or benefit from break-in.

I think I've debunked break-in. 

 

You get used to the sound. That's why people think they sound better after "break-in". 

 

 

EDIT: to back up my claims: I went from a Sennheiser PC360 to Audio-Technica ATH-M50S. I was very pleased with the bass performance of the M50S in comparison to the PC360's (which are essentially HD5x8 with a mic on the side). I then got Shure SRH440's with 840 pads. Less bass, but more than the PC360s. after using them for a while, everything seems to have more bass, because I then got used to less bass than M50S. And then for a week, I used my Soundmagic PL50's, which have very little bass, and after that everything seemed to have even more bass, because my ears were used to the bass in the PL50's.

New favorite song, sit back and enjoy.
