 I had some strange event where I was eating lunch and all of a sudden it felt like the air in the room super compressed instantly. I expected to turn around and see the building behind me had collapsed or something. Lost all hearing for a few sec then just heard a loud rushing sound for a few more. Like a grenade went off next to me. Ringing started the next day and it's been with me for about 6 weeks. I went to the audiologist, ENT and general physician. My hearing is...
Anyone experience a particular amp aggravating tinnitus? The last 2 times I've used my Lyr it has aggravated mine. Both times it hadn't been bothering me for at least a week and within the first 60sec of listening through my Lyr it was back with a vengeance. Still bothering me days later. 
 I was told I'd get a totally new set. Just have to wait for it.
11 days ago Senn support told me a replacement would be on backorder for 4-6 weeks, and I could send my pair in now or wait until then. I'm just gonna wait.
 I thought that might be it but also thought that disabling the mic as a pc input shouldn't disable the headphone's ability to use the mic for its own anc. I can't get them to do it again so maybe it was just a glitch. 
I was playing around with the device settings on my pc today and noticed that if you set the bluetooth M2 as the default playback device, and disable the headset microphone on the Recording tab, the bass response (volume and extension) while playing music is cut back significantly. Overall playback resolution suffers as well (edit - might actually be the lack of bass letting you hear what's really happening in the treble). Why would disabling the mic as a pc input affect...
A couple weeks ago I noticed that when I turned on my Marantz SR 5008 my sub would put out this soft low rumble/hiss and after a couple minutes it would pop, like you might hear through speakers when you turn on the amp, then the sub would operate as normal. I don’t believe it’s a ground loop issue as I had one when I first hooked up my system but fixed it.   Today, I noticed that a similar rumble/hiss was coming from my mains so turned off my sub and did a factory reset...
I recently demoed the universal version at the NY meet and on a couple tracks the vocals were spookily real, even compared to significantly more expensive products. Can't get it out of my head. Maybe I only got the right seal on this model?
A few weeks ago I bought a Lyr 2. With my LCD-2 it's dead silent and sounds fantastic. Today I plugged in my custom IEMs, UE 18 pros, for the first time. Low gain. They also sound great, except there's a slight hiss in the left channel only. Could this be a tube issue?
Note to anyone who tried the Noble iems - If you listened to the 10s but the case was regular black rather than kind of sparkly, you weren't listening to the 10s. I'm fairly certain I thought I was listening to the 10s but in fact had the 6s, which have a strong bass boost. Thinking back I don't remember seeing the 10s on the table at all but I could be wrong. The 10s look like this.
