It's very hard to describe but if you've ever turned on speakers or turned up the volume of a t.v. when there is no sound, you can hear this "empty" sound.
On the C&C, Out2 is completely silent with Highgain on/off. There is no "empty" sound like the E6.
On Out1 with Highgain off, it's completely silent. Once again, there is no "empty" sound. Dead silent.
However, on Out2 with Highgain on, I can hear a slight "whirring" sound. This is even when it's not plugged into my mp3 player. I only have the earphone plugged into the C&C.
I apologize, I don't mean it's a high pitched buzzing sound but, a faint but noticeable "whirring" sound. Like a "beeeeeeeee" or "whheeeeeee" sound.
The sound is not high-pitched or extremely noticeable. However, it's a bit annoying that I can hear this slight constant whirring.
When it's plugged into an mp3 player and a song is playing I can't tell if the whirring is there or not.
No one else's C&C has this issue? Or is it just an issue because of the highgain/Out1 combination?
