I got a pair or ad700's recently and love the sound quality. However, the quality of the hphones connected to an xtremegamer is nowhere near as good as them connected to my receiver. However, the hphones "hum" when I connect them to my receiver, and they do not to this when they are hooked up to the sound card directly. This hum is constant, and does not increase with volume, and is still present even if there is no source of sound... just as long as they are connected. My computer speakers z2300 do this "hum" too when they are turned on, and so do my receiver's speakers, except the frequency seems higher so it's not really a hum as much as just noise. I'm wondering if there is a way to fix this hum that comes from the headphones when they are connected to the receiver? Do other headphones do this too when they are connected to receivers?
