I got a pod x3 a couple days ago and had a lot of fun tweaking stuff through
computer usb and speakers, but when I played it through my Sony
MDR-7506 headphones, it sounded fuzzy. It sounded different from what I heard
from the computer logitech speakers (they are not that great -- they dont
have a bass woofer). It sure wansnt a good sound and it really sounded cheap.
Does anyone know the solution to this? I don't think there is a problem to
the headphones -- i mean seriosuly lots of professionals use sony mdr-7506.
One of the reasons i got a pod is because everyone said it sounds great through
headphones, but it doesn't sound great now.

its because it doesnt sound right unless it goes through speakers. no idea why tho.... i think a recording out would probably work for headphones.

Using the EQ pedal on the pod. Try turning the gain all the way down on the high eq and putting the frequency of the same to the top. seems to work for me.

yes, my headphones are headphones specifically designed for studio monitoring.//
Re-eqing sounds like such a hassle.. Shouldn't the patches sound the same through
speakers AND through headphones? Also, although re-eqing changes the sound, it still
has the fuzzy "cheap" sound -- it is defenitely not what i heard through speakers

no because not all speakers are created equally.

its the same thing if you play one of your CD's thru someones $5000 hifi tube stereo, and then go play it thru someones 20$ walmart ghetto blaster.

they're gonna sound different.

chances are your computer speakers (which are designed more than likely for gaming, and movies) accentuate a lot of highs and lows, so plugging into your pod with headphones, you're gonna hear your tone how it actually is.

it'd be the same if you plugged in studio monitors as compared to your computer speakers.

Try plugging your headphones into your computer (with the POD running through it obviously). I find the sound is much better running through my mac than the headphone output. If it sounds the same as it does through the POD headphone out then it's your settings not the POD.
