@ DrSheep: 

 

I didn't notice what source you are using with your Vamp.  If it's an iPhone (4 or 4s) make sure it's in airplane mode.  If the phone or wifi functions are active, there's noise.

Hi Luk:

 

What can you tell me abut this?  Do they send you a file or point you at FTP or something? 

 

I've got two iPhone 4S iDevices.  I've had one from work for a while, still running iOS 5.1.x -- Vamp works fine with it.  I just got a 64gb 4S to dedicate as a Vamp partner.  Unfortunately, it came pre-loaded with iOS 6.0.1, and the Vamp has some problems -- volume goes from silent straight to 'fairly' loud, and the 'charge the iPhone' function can't be turned off.  While I can live with the latter, the former is killing me. 

 

I've searched long and hard, and it's clear that there is 'NO WAY' to down-grade my iOS, so I NEED to fix the Vamp.

 

Thanks for your help.

Thanks, I just tried reseting the VAMP and use airplane mode with my 4S, but I am still getting quite a bit of hisses when nothing's playing.  I emailed V-moda and they said that's not normal.  So now I think the only way I can solve this is to have it exchanged...

That's not normal at all.  I am using my VAMP with my 4S with iOS 6.0.1 too and I just noticed that it charges my phone no matter what mode it is in.  However, I don't have your volume problem so I don't know about that one.

因為蘋果公司的新系統iOS 6 在電力管理作出重大的更新,如果客戶的iPhone手機作出這iOS 6更新, 有可能會致使VAMP 持續向iPhone充電,這是充電界面兼容性問題而非VAMP 功能損壞。

解決方案是需要更新VAMP硬體和軟體,請將VAMP交回我們作更新。

 

註︰因為蘋果公司的政策是新的軟體更新規格不會預先通知附件製造商,導致這充電兼容性問題。 這非我們技術上所能控制,如有不便之處請原諒。

 

Translation by using google:

 

Apple's new system iOS 6 major updates in the power management, if the customer's iPhone make iOS 6 update, likely would have led a the VAMP sustained charge to the iPhone, which is charging interface compatibility issues rather than the VAMP functional damage.

The solutions need to update the the VAMP hardware and software, and the return of the VAMP us for updates.


Note because the Apple's policy is a new software update specifications without prior notice Accessories manufacturers, to lead this charge compatibility issues. Our technically beyond our control, if any inconvenience, please forgive.

Correct. That's the known incompatibility between the VAmp & iOS 6.x.

L.CMusicLover's problem sounds completely different.

Firmware upgrades require the VAmp device to be sent back to V-Moda. Not self-upgradeable.

Why on earth would V-moda post this from their China site and not US?  Thank god I am from HK and can read it just fine.  I guess there is no other way around this but RMA my VAMP back to V-moda :(...  And thanks for posting.

 

p.s. why can't we do the firmware update ourselves if the issues can be solved so easily?

Although not iOS related, are you aware that the CLAS and the HP-P1 requires a send-back for firmware upgrades too? This process isn't specific to the VAmp.

post #505 of 691

No don't, but again this is not making sense from the company stand point, as making your customers RMA a product just for a firmware update is not exactly cost effective.  Besides, I have been waiting for my RMA from V-moda for two days now and still nothing.  If this continues I will just return my VAMP to Amazon and buy it again when it's all fixed.

As consumers, I think it's easy to sit back and criticise a product's deficiencies. I can tell you that I myself have given feedback to that effect to VentureCraft, Fostex, and V-Moda. Bear in mind that it's not efficient on their side to have to bring back products to upgrade firmwares as it's effort on their part too.

 

But not all businesses are big like Apple, Google, etc. where there's a large budget for R&D to create the "ideal" system. Most of these companies aren't that size where they have easy access to a large resource to develop the perfect product - in fact quite a few of these companies are really made up of a handful of employees who have to deal with everything from design, manufacture and sales. I talk to them and I do provide feedback to them but constructively.

 

Cut them some slack.

Well put. It is very easy to moan. It actually requires logic to understand. 

 

Talking of which are they going to make any sort of combining cover for the S3 and the Go-Dap X? You hinted at the possibility the last time I moaned about it.

 

And to go completely off topic, I think it was you that was confused by how I thought the D7000 had a more recessed midrange then the D2000, I foigured out why, the previous owned had placed foam discs between the pads and the cups, giving it a much more V-shaped sound, and increasing the soundstage and treble. SO now I'm eating a bit of humble pie, the treble is perfect now that I removed the discs.

I'll bring this over to the Go-DAP X page since it's not VAmp related.

Oh don't worry I am not bitching, and this is why I am still waiting for my RMA after 4 days and not just return it to Amazon.  To be fair, I do think Apple changes everything too often, which makes it hard to keep everything in sync in terms of R&D and up keeps.
