Hello Smilingmaitr, 


Thanks for posting and welcome to the forums. 


This is certainly a strange one. Can I please ask what volume the headphones are set at when this happens? Also, the ear-cups should seal around your ear to maximise noise cancellation and noise pollution. Do yours sit comfortably around the ear? If not, the headband can be adjusted to get a better fit. Let me know how this goes!
