  • Active during songs with Beats Audio volume swings?

    I recently took a 15-3033CL Envy.  While the audio sounds very good, I'm running a problem with wild volume swings in my music.  At first I thought it was my headset on the ear, so some earphones that I tried.  The problem seems less pronounced, but it came back again.  I've even heard this problem through the laptop speakers.  The music will start at a single volume, increase and reduce on its own.  It's incredibly distracting.  I made sure that I have the latest drivers and even the reinstalled without success.  I wonder if it isn't a software problem at all.  Note: if I disable the Beats, the problem seems calm, but maybe it's because the music is not as full as before and my ears aren't picking up the differences.  I tried to change different EQ presets and use by default.  I even tried a few custom settings, I found from a thread of advice of settings here.  Nothing seems to completely mitigate the issue.  I thought that it may be a problem of low-quality streaming of Pandora, so I tried my mp3s.  The question was always there.  I tried the music I have in format flac.  Less visible, but always there.  If I take these same headphones on my desk, the question isn't here.  The question seems to disappear at high volumes, but those aren't comfortable listening levels.

    So far I have tried:

    Pandora with computer speakers

    Pandora with a headset on the ear, skullcandy

    Pandora with skullcandy headphones

    Windows Media Player with 256 kbps MP3s with headphones and speakers latop

    "Songbird with flac audio at the same time.

    I've been using music is hard rock heavy metal.

    HP Support Assistant today informed me with updates and one of these updates include a new version of the IDT Audio drivers. It seems that the volume changes are fixed finnally! Thank you HP

  • Play, stop after 15 seconds on iPod Shuffle

    My wife I recently purchased an iPod Shuffle and headphones Skullcandy method for Christmas. The plan was to use for the race (Skullcandy are more comfortable than most of the Earbud Headphones, Apple included).

    Unfortunately, when I try to play music after about 15 seconds of reading the track abruptly fades, and then stops. If I press play again, the track will start again then wither and stop after 15 seconds... and so on! The battery is fully charged. The period of time until the music stops seems very accurate, so I don't think it's a bad connection.

    I've not had much luck trying to find the question - this request doesn't seem to be that common. States of FAQ of SKULLCANDY headphones are compatible with my iPod model:

    I tried without success to the following:

    • Restore the iPod
    • Using disk utility to analyze and repair the iPod
    • Let it take over completely (just in case where iTunes has been somehow misreading of the amount of charge on the iPod)

    I tried with another too - Apple and some AKG - helmet which seems to fix the problem. BUT the Apple headphones are useless for the race and my AKGs are reserved for the studio. I want to use the Skullcandy headphones! It is a 3.5 mm jack, it should work!

    So, my questions are:

    1. All the world had or heard about this problem (with Skullcandy or any other headphones)?
    2. There is a known compatibility issue? (I don't like about the features of the control of the headphone button works with the iPod - I want just works fine).
    3. Anyone have any suggestions to solve this problem or a work-around, before buying a new helmet?

    Thank you


    iPod Shuffle (2 GB) 4th Gen 1.0.3

    iMac (27 inch, end 2013) race El Capitan 10.11.2

    SKULLCANDY method (S2CDGY-405)

    If it works correctly with other headphones, the cause must be the Skullcandy headphones.  It is defective, or design is not compatible in some way.  It seems that these headphones have controls on the cord.  There may be a short circuit that is causing a faulty signal playback.

    "15 seconds" is maybe the shuffle 'expire' because it does not recognize the headset is connected.  The adjustment can be different between helmet, in order to ensure that the plug is fully inserted into shuffle headphones Jack.  It is tighter than expected when shuffle is brand new.

    You have another device, like an iPhone, try with the Skullcandy?  Or you can also try with your iMac.  Your iMac can use the power cord remote control signals, as well to launch iTunes and play a song to see if anything unusual occurs.

  • Dell Optiplex 9020 with horrible sound

    I installed Windows 8.1 (clean install of Microsoft ISO) on this new 9020 Optiplex and installed all updates from microsoft and then installed all Dell updates (using the web page support and my dell). Part of that is to install the audio driver Realtek Dell HD package.

    After installation, the headphone/speaker output before jack product really terrible audio or no audio when connecting headphones (which worked beautifully with my previous Vostro 200 machine). The Dell software opens a popup to ask really strange questions about what I plugged (skullcandy headphones, earphones, speakers dell or right speakers). No matter what I choose the audio is either distorted and often missing voices or other sounds important or it is completely absent. Windows sound system is very good. So I know that the plug and the headset works very well, it's something to do with the dell software that causes the output this horribly distorted or filtered audio.

    I don't want any "enhanced" or some audio special software tries to do, no movie mode, music mode or whatever it is. Just the normal sound as it is recorded.

    It's so bad, that I'll have to consider buying a sound card, or dig my old USB audio device to have a decent audio output.

    Rear audio output also has software problems unless I have install audio drivers from Dell. The rear output is failing to be a kind of treble only filtered out (no bass or midrange sounds) if I do not use the Dell software.

    This really should not be difficult. A simple output DAC audio as it was recorded. That's all.

    OK... after the call of support and to have a run around for more than 2 hours on the listed company as the owner of the computer, I diverted without help.

    I spent another 3 hours fiddling with everything I could think of until I went back to the basics and did what I should have done from the beginning: tried different headphone directly connected to the machine before taking.

    I actually tried 2 different pairs of headphones right when I first found the problem. Both have the same problem so I assumed that it had to be the machine because it is what has changed. And as the behavior seemed different in different applications, I thought it must be a software problem.

    The fix was actually related to the material. I use an extension the monster headphone cable (yes I know, it's really cheap on Amazon) so that I can wear my helmet while I move my office and job fair in my office. Unfortunately, it seems that the male connector at one end of the cable is a bit small compared to most of the catch of helmet.

    And they say that the size is not serious...

    In any case, I use a combination of 2 extensions (a monster and one that came with my headphones), so I just swapped their so one that came with my headset is connected to the computer and everything works fine. I think that the short connector must have been filled should not have things or something like that.

  • SKULLCANDY Hesh 2 headphone connection is no longer in Windows 7


    I got these headphones Skullcandy Hesh 2 for Christmas this year and until recently they worked very well. Now they are no longer connect via Bluetooth. The headset sounds the word "Pairing" and nothing will actually connect.

    I had problems with it lately and I found that it is enough to remove the device and add new would work perfectly, but now is not.

    I would say just 'research of Services' for all eternity when normally it would pop right up with connect it or disconnect option.

    They are not appearing on the playback devices either.

    I am running Windows 7 64 bit on a Dell Inspiron 5521

    I read through many forums dealing with the same problems and all these fixes have not seemed to have worked at all.

    Edit: I tried connecting them with other devices like my iPhone and have not had any problems.

    Any advice?

  • Running w / HR monitor AND headphones wireless w / Apple Watch 2 series

    Since obtaining Apple Watch series 2, I've been out running with wireless headphones Powerbeats2 alongside the screen TickR HR, both related to the watch simultaneously via Bluetooth. While this works great, I wonder if I can do even better and lose the style HR chest strap monitor. Has anyone had success with wireless headphones that double as a monitor of human resources (e.g., Bose Soundsport Pulse), and specifies how was the heart rate?


    Apple Watch includes a heart rate sensor built-in.

    If you have not already done so, you can try to use this instead of an external monitor. When you use the application of the workout, the heart rate is measured continuously during the training:

  • 7 adapter w/lightning iPhone headphones. The caller does not hear me

    When I make calls or receive, the person at the other end of the line can't hear me but I can hear them.

    In this case more than 50% of the time until now, in fact I would say more like 75% so far. Sometimes its fixed by pulling me on the adapter of the lightning and put it back in the phone.

    Today, I put through a few tests in-depth using three different sets of headphones and had the same problem with all of them.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I'm having the same problem also. Pulling on the adapter of the lightning and reintegrate them into the port seems to solve it, but then happens again next time you receive a call.

    I used two different sets of headphones with the same results.

    The remote control also do not work and can not adjust the volume of the call.

    Assuming that he is part of the issues that have been reported and will be fixed in the next update?
