Weird buzzing !!! help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi Head-fi

 

I have a pair of M50's which I use almost all the time, but i also use some IEM's (Sennheiser CX299) 

When the M50's is plugged in there is no buzzing in the background and is all quite (of cause not when the music is on)

But when I then plug the CX299 in there is a buzzing in the background, I tried to plug it in my fathers laptop and my Ipod: no buzzing

I also have some other ear-bud and when i plug the in my laptop the buzzing comes again

 

M50: no buzzing

CX299: buzzing

Other ear-buds: buzzing

Source: My laptop

 

WHHHHHHY??? can it possibly be that the buzzing only comes with IEM on my laptop? WTF? Planning on buying Monster turbine pro or pro gold, but not i am nervous. Please Help

 

Thanks

Sounds like your laptop jack is bad, probably has nothing to do with the headphones. You should take it apart and solder in a new jack or buy yourself a USB DAC headphone amp.

laptop headphone jacks are also line outs--really sensitive headphones are often incompatible with certain outputs.  It's probably due to the more sensitive nature and lower impedance of the IEMs.  If that's the case, it's not really the fault of the jack, and the best jack in the world won't fix it.

 

A USB soundcard might help, but many of them aren't much better for IEMs.

So if I were to but a Monster Turbine Pro, would that work ?

 

Of for example the AD1100. Are that in the same catagory as my M50's and Razer orca ?? Thanks
