Happened to my PINT before as well on occasion. Assuming the problem is the same, it should be the PA2V2's problem with one of its internal resistors maybe.

Try your UM1 with other sources. If prolem still persists, then it should be the UM1.

Strange! Mine is fine with all earphones/headphones. Maybe you should consult Gary about this. And check your UM1 with other source too.

Becareful with those Westones man. Thou rugged, they're still earphones and have only 1 year warranty Vs Gary's lifetime for PA2V2.



theory_87: ok! You can sms me also to arrange.

alright i emailed Gary and he was fast.. wrote me a essay for my qn and replied in like 10mins

he says that the potentiometer he uses will cause an imbalance in volume in my UM1s at low volumes. So a possible solution would be using a level attenuator so i can lower my ipod vol and turn up the vol on my PA2V2. this will bypass the imbalance experienced earlier on.

Oh yeah. Gary is certainly one of the more amazing guys in head phones. His replies are never 1 liner and always fast. I wonder how he cope with all the emails and replying them in essay length to all time zones.

Ety is another one amazing company. They sent me some sample foams, case and smartwrap to get the most out of my ER4.

I dun have any problems with my PA2V2 with any earphones. A level attenuator from Shure dun cost much. $16 i think? Stereo got sell.

But seriously, the diff between amped and unamped for UM1 is that great meh? I dun think so leh. But its got to do with your player as well. Some syneryize well some dun. You have to consider the extra cost and hassle of an additional level attenuator and amp. For me, i lazy to bring those out. Just my player and earphones can liao.
