The Koss ESP950 thread (ESP owners, please contribute! :) - Page 24

running a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male cable interconnect from the front 3.5 to my waist band eliminates the hum.

 

Did I screw something up before when I sent sound through both the front and rear inputs and it was garbled?

I think it's a plain ground loop.  I can touch the bifrost it's connected to, and it goes away.

 

When I turn on a Wii U on the same circuit (connected to bifrost via optical), the hum gets way worse.  Touch ANY ground will stop it.  (Bifrost case, either of the L/R grounds on the RCA connections, or the front 3.5mm.)

Yeah it was a ground loop, a Hum Eliminator solved that problem right up.

 

Speaking of which, are there better pads for 950's?  Like velour or leather?  The stock pads don't breath at all...
