I have few simple questions which after googling, i could not find specifically for my hardware.
I own a creative x-fi elite pro sound card and sony mdr zx-700 headphones.
If i dont enable bass boost, there is very little or no bass.
After enabling bass bost, level +10 db from 1 to 12
and cuttoff frequency at 40hz from 10 to 200, the bass seems fine, but after i increase volume more than 35%, it starts crackling.
it does not happen with realtek card, but sound quality is par
Is something wrong with my card or headphones?
I usually tested it on youtube video. If i play an uncompressed (flac) file, will i able to hear without crackling at high volumes?
Another problem is i often wear headphones for like few hours.
I dont feel pain in ears or any other symptoms, i just start to feel a little headache. even while i am just wearing the headphones and there is no sound at all. it becomes better when i take off the headphones.
