Noticed something this morning on my way to the bus stop. in two blocks of walking, the player had 15 sound dropouts. It’s not skipping, it’s having dropouts - they are very brief. That was with Normal EQ and the source music was anything but “hot” (it’s nu-jazz). Now, all the people having these issues (me, wife, daughter) have the same headphones, specifically Sennheiser CX-300s. A while back when I was using Sennheiser MX-400s on another player (a CL beastie), I noticed that it was possible that the plug was just a wee bit too long and would, depending on how it was inserted, short out and cause a dropout. That didn’t happen on the Cowons and it didn’t happen with either my Koss Portapros or Koss SportaPros. And the CX-300s are Sennheissers. Maybe this is the root cause because after sll, it only happens when
I’m moving briskly and…
I’m sitting in such a position that the player is pressed close to me because the bus is so crowded
For the entire bus ride I sat by syself and all was sweetness and light.
More testing will be done…
