I bought some studio headphones to do some silent practice. However when I plug them on the amp, the volume is too low to be useful. If I max out the gain/master knobs it distorts to the point I don’t care to play that way.
I tested the headphones on my phone and computer, and it seems to be ok volume-wise. Anyone with a similar experience?
No, my headphones are fine. (Sennheiser HD580 precision with Rumble 100)
Although I noticed that I turn it up 10% but not to the degree where distortion would kick in.
Do you have a DAI? Since I got the active bass I use the DAI to practice with headphones. It’s the easiest for me to get a backing track also to the headphones and with the EQ on the bass I got enough tone options to practice.
I had a similar issue with a Fender Rumble LT25, it just didn’t like some of the headphones I bought.
I would always try my headphones first with any amp in the future before buying, now I’ve been caught by this issue.
