Went to listen to my somewhat-new DT990's today and I'm getting no sound out of the left driver.

Lovely.

Has anyone dealt with their warranty support before?

I suppose it does smile.gif

That problem should be absolutely nonexistent with the complys we were talking about earlier, I just got another set in, the Tx-100s, and its complete isolation. Remember to replace them when they start to wear out, i kept my last set for a bit too long, and the difference between this new set and the old ones was huge.

I'm going to wait until I get my whole setup together before I upgrade my amp, probably to the new CMoy coming out in two or three days, or maybe an O2. Also been hearing good things about the E11. Not as good as the CMoy, but the supposedly dark sound signature of the E11 seems to fit what Im going for. Eh, I have time to make up my mind, I dont have any money now anyways.

No, return them and buy something better.

So I bought a new connector for my HD595's and still have the problem with only the right side working. Suggestions on what to do next? Wiggling the cable around does nothing and I get no sound at all on the left side. Doesn't matter the source.

As a quick sanity check, measure the impedance of the L side (say between tip and sleeve on the TRS jack) and the impedance of the R side (say between ring and sleeve on TRS jack). Well, with a cheap multimeter, you'll just get the impedance at DC, aka resistance, but that's okay for diagnostics purposes.

I have an explainlikei'mfive question, and a request

#1 When using a headphone amp in conjunction with the PC, what is the best way to set the volume levels? I had put the PC @ 100% and used the amp to determine overall volume, but now I'm wondering if I should have it much lower or just under 50% and have the amp @ a higher setting so as to use its power to amplify the signal instead of overdriving the signal before it even gets to the amp. I'd really like to know so I can get the very best quality without risking damage to my headphones.

Headphones= M50's
Amp= ARTcessories HeadAmp4 (cheap Amazon purchase, no idea what kind of quality, but I'm sure you guys with $300 amps will protest)

#2 Why haven't my M50's been added to the OP yet?

Thanks, guys!
