Just opened my x1 mic.. It moves around a lot near the earpiece. Makes a rattling sound as if something is loose.. Normal?

the earpiece should wiggle slightly but not excessively.

enough to where it rattles if you shake it in your hand but again nothing excessive.

it shouldn't have "a lot" of flex, like it still should remain mostly straight it shouldn't fold or anything.

it does slide up and down on the earpiece as opposed to the headband itself.

thats how you would adjust the size.

No, I mean, the band has some flex. The actual spot where it attaches. You can sort of move it around a good bit. Wondering if is a defect.

that guy handles his mic a bit so maybe based on that you can tell?

he plays a game for a while and then goes back to showing the mic.
