Volume lacks oomph!

Post by MeMeMe »

I have a set of surround sound headphones.
When I play very bass-y music in iTunes, it causes my headphones to rumble satisfyingly. When in MediaMonkey, it doesn't - the sound is weak.
If I turn up the db on the Equaliser, the sound gets distorted.

Is there any way to solve this?

not sure what system you have but i have winxp and i notice that if i use headphones the system will automaticly switch to head phone settings in the speaker panel of the control panel for the system.

this is very annoying but i just stopped using sound at night on this computer.

My headphones are connected to the surround sound sockets, so that doesn't happen (when I want to listen to speakers, I plug them into the headphone socket!)

I figured out the problem:
I'm using the MAD plugin, which allows 24bit and 32bit sound - but if I use either of those, the power of the music vanishes. I'm back to 16-bit, and all is well.

oh glad you found the trouble i did not think about it being a 16 bit or 32 bit trouble. so your sound card is a 16 bit card. 8)

Yep, I'd thought it was higher but now I've checked the specs I see it is 16-bit.
