Does anyone recommend a switcher (like that Plantronics that is discontinued) for headphone? Because is ridiculous to have to unplug and to plug the hp every time I want to change between them.
Although it does not matter, having to push a buttom or to plug/unplug a plug is the same crap.
Does the front panel jack on the computer case get the same power than rear in TiHD?
Is there any excitation to plug the hps on back jack instead of front panel case?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the SNR also worse on the front panel?Originally Posted by chalkbluffgrown;13328158
its a bad idea if your cans require a much higher impedance. Some people have no problems whatsoever with case noise being heard in their front panel audio jacks, some do. So if you are using low impedance cans and you have no case noise problems, then use your front panel.
I used an X-Meridian 2G sound card, and it has an excellent front panel headphone out conection. No noise whatsoever.
