I was wondering if the Pit could be of some use...


Basically when I plug my headphones into my amp or my laptop, I'm losing a lot of volume to the point where I'm having to have everything full-blast just to hear things.

Any ideas what's the problem? I've got the laptop's master volume right up too.


It's either the computer's fault or I'm going deaf...

Have you tried any other sets of headphones?
They're probably just knackard.

No, they're almost brand new.

How does that rule out them being broken? They could just be faulty. I'm sure they have some kind of warranty, yes?

Are they the ones that go right in? Could be ear wax over the speaker bit. Actually what headphones are they?

Do they have a volume control on the wire that you may have missed?



Nope. It's just a straight wire.

Hmm... a ****ing monsterous amount of ear wax they crawled out of your head without you noticing and decided to set up home on the speakers?

Have you tried them with anything else? Some headphones are just quiet

check your volume controls on your computer, they sometimes change automatically when a mini-jack (your headphone input) is plugged in. otherwise, check with a different set of headphones. thats the only way to fault find mate.

if the problem still occurs with different headphones, then you know its not your new headphones and go from there.

You use them on your amp, right? That always kills my headphones when i do that.

Could be a dodgy connection - are they pushed into the socket fully? If they are try pulling them out a tadge and see if it makes a difference...other than that do other headphones work ok? If they do sounds like you may have got a faulty pair...
