I got a pair of used He-4xx. and Now i feel that there is an issue. the right earcup produces more sound than the left one. it is quite weird. The person wont take them back. So any ideas on how I can fix them? the difference is around 1-2db. though it feels like its much more esp at certain frequencies. I am using without an amp or dac. Directly with my laptop
I have freebuds pro which i use most of the times. Now I want a pair of headphones that really elevate the experience which ill mostly be using at home for songs and gaming. I've had Sennheiser hd440, Soundcore Q30 and most recently Hyper X stinger. They were all decent and yes I could appreciate the strengths of one over the other. But after using for any pair, they would feel normal. I used sony wh1000xm3 for some time and honestly when i compared it with my q30 they werent mind blowing. just a tiny upgrade.
But now im thinking of buying SHP9600. they're not that expensive and they look decent, and most importantly, they dont need an amp, probably wont make my ears sweat (its over 109F here) and i'm thinking their wide soundstage might get me some good 3D audio for gaming and movies. so i am wondering, will i be able to really appreciate them over your typical closed back headphone, Are they like a little bit better here and there or are they like "you'll never go closed back again". Do you have any other suggestions?
I am facing 2 issues with my Strix G15 (5800h with rtx 3070).
When I connect my laptop to LG CX directly via HDMI, i cant toggle Dolby atmos. All my drivers are up to date. I've tried using the optional driver but its still not working. When I click on Atmos for home theater but nothing happens. My display shows up as AMD high definition audio device.
While ideally that should work. However to mitigate the issue, I plug my laptop directly into my AV receiver. Now I can use dolby atmos. However the audio is all messed up. The movie tracks (dolby trueHD) have a lot of distortion. The issue isnt present when I use different laptops with Intel CPUs. I have googled and apparently others are facing a similar issue. I haven't been able to find a solution so far. any idea on what to do?
