Posting this more as a WTF than anything else, because there's no logical explanation.
> Enjoy some music on my laptop (EQ'd, through my AT M50s)
> Enjoy some music on my Clip+ (no EQ, through the M50s)
> Update firmware and RockBox on my Clip+
> Load some more music on
> Listen and think WTF? It sounds hollow, I can barely hear the basslines of the songs I'm listening to (that I was listening to ten minutes earlier). Percussive bass sounds like a hollow tap rather than a thud/thump.
> Assume that the new FW or Rockbox has messed with something (not sure what, since I was running it unEQ'd before I updated it, perhaps something affecting it's ability to power the phones?), so look around in the settings and find nothing obvious.
> Figure I'll fix it tomorrow morning, and resume listening on the laptop.
> Same thing - hollow/nonexistant bass.
> Freak out thinking that it must be in my head while knowing that it's not.
Has anyone ever had the sound of their phones inexplicably mess up? I cannot explain it at all - the laptop hasn't had anything changed on it yet it's exhibiting the same problem, which means it's ... the 'phones or my ears? Can 'phones develop a fault that messes up the response without killing them completely? I'm at a complete loss.
