    ya its the same i can hear all the music but the words are really really low nd kind of crackly.i've changed the earphones and everything but it still the same

    Thats my problem right now with the microphoto - Muted voices and distorted music. Kinda like an echo chamber. Reformatted the drive, new headphones - the drive seems to be fine - because I transferred a few songs to my office computer and they are fine. I think its something in the circuitry. Creative wants $135 to fix it - along with $25 to mail it. I can get a Nano for less.



    Oh well

Vocals are almost always in the center of the sound field. This means the same amount of vocal sound is going to both headsets. If you are hearing lots of music and not much vocal, I suspect the ground lead of your headphones (or the MP3 player headphone jack) has an open circuit. This can cause the vocals to cancel out, but you will still hear the music. This can be made even worse if your MP3 player has a "stereo wide" or "stereo enhance" setting that's turned on. "Stereo wide" plays some games with signal phase to create an illusion of more left-to-right separation, but if there is a connection problem with your phones or speakers, it will sound really odd.

Found your question due to having the exact problem you described. New firmware, format... loaded new music, same problem. While switching to yet another set of headphones the sound got better momentarily. The case doesn't appear loose, but squeeze right next to the lcd and lyra name and the audio was fixed. For some reason the audio was mechanical sounding and the voice was almost non-existant unless pressure was placed on the player where described. I tightened the screw in the retaining strap hole and the one under the USB connector flap and all is well for now. Good Luck!!!!

I had teh same problem, and discovered the headphones weren't plugged in all the way.

Posted on Nov 17, 2008

I had the same problem either look at the sound settings , change the head phones or buy a new mp3

Posted on Sep 16, 2007

The headphones are probally cheap, I had the same problem with mine but I fixed it.

Posted on Apr 30, 2007

What's probably happened is that the cord of the headphones is faulty and it is not picking up the vocal range.

It could also mean that your headphones are improperly built or plugged in...make sure they are all the way plugged in, and if that doesn't work, do exactly as windman says because he is a MASTER at fixya, this is just me favorite hobby...helping people.

I've had that problem when I first got my MP3 Player. I figured out 2 days later I didn't plug the headphones in right. Funny thing, I almost returned it. If thats not it change the settings like the other guy said. Hope it works out

Back ground music louder than voices watching movies on cable


Is this a new problem or always like this? <<<<<<<<

What is your speaker complement? The center usually carries the dialog.

Are the receiver and its speaker systems set up per the manual? Make it so.

How is the TV-related (Cable) audio entering your receiver? It SHOULD be from the cable box, digitally if available, NOT the TV. You don't need a Low-Fi middleman handling your audio.

Ambient sound is louder than the music


Hi,
I have a Mac (OS X 10.5.7) and had the same problem with the Ion TTUSB system picking up room noise. This seemed to fix it: 
In System Preference, under Hardware, choose "Sound".
Choose "Input".
Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC  type: USB

I hope this helps,
Cheers!

The background music is louder than the voices


in the menu there should be some type of set up for this, it will most times show you on your screen a room with all the speakers in it and ask you to hit test then it will shoot a white noise type of sound around to each speaker and ask if you heard it, there are then adjustments you can make for the front, rear, and side sperkers independent of one another.

Most audio software these days offer either built-in or plugin functionality that will attempt to level the volume of your MP3 files so that you aren't turning the volume up to hear soft songs, then getting blasted by louder ones. So why is it that even after turning that option on, you sometimes notice a significant volume difference between some songs? What's worse is when you're listening to songs from the same album, and the volumes jump around abnormally after applying volume normalization.

The problem is that the vast majority of audio player programs use peak amplitude analysis to determine how "loud" a song is and normalize based on that, rather than doing a more comprehensive analysis of the frequencies that impact how loud the music actually sounds. But even those that do a more comprehensive analysis fail to consider songs within the context of the album they belong to.

Luckily, there's a great little utility called MP3 Gain that does lossless volume analysis and adjustment based on David Robinson's Replay Gain algorithm, as well as allowing for the volume of entire albums to be processed. MP3 Gain has been around for a number of years, and it doesn't appear that it is being actively developed anymore, but since MP3 technology hasn't changed much either that doesn't matter for our purposes.

So, how do you fix an entire library of music? Pretty easy, actually. MP3 Gain offers batch processing options that allow you to process an entire folder at once. But if you collect music albums, you'll want to do those separately. The reason is that MP3Gain offers two modes: Radio and Album. Radio analysis and gain adjustment will adjust all songs to the same maximum decibel level. Album mode analyzes all of the songs in an album, essentially considering them to be one entire song, then adjusts them all to a maximum decibel level, but maintains their relative volume.
