Question about the hissing with my iPod

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Just got my se530s and they are amazing. My only question/complaint is that with my ipod there is a hissing. with my computer it's even worse but I don't need to use them with my computer. but with my iPod is there anyway to get rid of the hiss. it's there when I don't have anything playing and gets louder when i just turn the volume up on a paused song.

I'm sure this is common and i was expecting this. I think the only way to really fix it is with an amp but I figured I could ask anyway. Thanks!

and I love these IEMs!!!!

You can fix it with this : ETYMOTIC ER4P TO ER4S RESISTOR ADAPTOR en vente sur eBay.fr (fin le 11-Juil-08 03:15:36 Paris)

Or you can also get a cheap volume attenuator but they are reported to degrade sound quality.

Type "Converts ER-4P to ER-4S" in Google, you can find stores.
On Ultimate ears's website, in accessory you have got a similar one, the tool kit.
Accessories - Store - Ultimate Ears Earphones Headphones Personal Monitors
but I don't know if it degrade sound like Shure.

Thanks!
