Technical Support responded. My issue was due to trying to use it in an unsupported mode, unfortunately (I had a smart power switch that turned off power whenever the laptop was disconnected - looks like I will need to turn it on and off manually). Compared to my previous stack, JoLida tube DAC and Schiit Asgard, the Pulse is a big step up. I am not good at writing very detailed audio impressions, but bottom line, the Pulse is a lot more refined. Music that was edgy on my...
My apologies for jumping to that conclusion, I should have asked first, and I stand corrected.The Cardas I have is definitely techflex (or equivalent) and is quite noisy.
Microphonics is not a strictly accurate term, though it is commonly used. The problem is the cable jacket picks up vibrations as it rubs against you and other objects, these vibrations are conducted up the cable into the headphone housing, and is presented as a sound from the headphone. It is mechanical end to end, so is amplifier independent. Techflex, which most cables (including Charleston) is especially bad with this. Most people don't notice the noise, but some...
Not as bad as the Cardas I have now, price wise.Will see what other recommendations I get, but may just get that one. Thanks
Currently using Cardas Clear Light cable. It is highly microphonic which drives me crazy (I will be selling it). Looking for recommendations for a truly silent cable. Don't need fancy/expensive, just a good solid cable.
Thanks for responding. I don't have the same issue with the Shure preamp, nor with my JoLida DAC I used previously. Both resync fine after redock.
I fired up my Pulse today and am enjoying it. I have a USB driver bug which I have reported to LHL, but since my setup is unusual I thought I would also try the community. I use a Windows laptop with a docking station. Besides the Pulse I also have a Shure USB mic preamp hooked up. When I undock and redock the laptop, the Pulse isn't recognized. So far the only way I am able to fix is to disconnect the Shure, power cycle the Pulse then reconnect the Shure, which is rather...
Mine were originally delivered with O2 pads, no adhesive used. Smeggy converted mine as the prototype for Audeze pads. He made the baffles a little larger, but he said the Audeze pads fit OK though a little looser with the O2 baffles. You may want to use double stick tape. Generally the larger pads reduce the bass a bit. If that is the case with your phones, you can just open the ports a little larger to compensate. This is really pretty easy stuff.Go to my profile page to...
I would recommend the LCD2 pads. Cheaper and much more durable. My pair had them and they fit just fine.
I have been patient thus far for my Xfi, but when I see shipping delay after delay, and I simultaneously see them continue to offer new products for backing, while ones in the pipeline are delayed, does not inspire confidence.
