Sony mdr nc20 low volume on one channel

Volume on one channel on my Sony mdr nc20 is lower than the other. Difference is very significant. Both channels do get sound but I have to balance far to the left to get similar volume. Replaced battery. Connectors look good.

SOURCE: Volume really low, even when turned right up

So the speakers and the individual amp channels work so that lets out the obvious big hardware items.

This is starting to sound like an obscure setting was set or changed by mistake.

It would be nice to figure out what that is/was in case it happens again but you may eventually have to resort to resetting the receiver to factory defaults and start over by holding the1/0 button for 5 seconds.

You could try to use a player with a stereo balance and adjust that, but in reality you need new headphones. Sonys have very comfortable and flexible cabling but the downside is that they wear out easily.

SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA volume problem

I had this same issue, and solved it by putting the TV in "Theater Mode', which can be acheived by hitting the "Theater" button on the remote.

Hey! I have a problem with my sony MDR-RF81 headphones....when the bass is to loud...there volume is droping...when I listen to skirllex for example...the volume is high or low...but when the bass...


Hey there, the problem with your sony is not a hardware problem, the headphones are completely fine, its the amount of bass you are putting into the headphones, there are two solutions to this, if you're using a mobile device (Apple, android etc...), go to your app store and download an equaliser e.g poweramp, with this, you can adjust the sound going through to your headphones using the built in equalizer (usually 5-10 bands, research this if you have no knowledge of equalisers), you can use this to turn down the bass frequencies in the sound, or the only other thinkable options are if you are already have an equaliser in use, turn it down, because putting all of the bars to the top makes the sound horrible, research on some suggestions for equaliser presets (another word for equalizer settings), or just turn the volume down.

the reason this happens is because bass naturally overpowers treble, and if it is too loud, the treble and mids will be significantly quieter, headphones are a menace for this, so all you have to do is tweak the sound a little (using an equaliser) to find that perfect balance between the different elements of sound.:-) :-)

Hope this helped mate :-) :-)

Low volume output and very low volume when digital broadcast


if you are using a digital converter along with a standard tv , you have one volume level low making the unbalance sound a humming sound, if it is directlly into your tv, check your settings on your tv bass, trebile, by the sound of it you probably have a digital converter , if this is so, raise the volume of your TV to mid point that raise /lower your volume on the converter and it should be fine, also make sure your ouput channel is not the same as your broadcast channel in your area, example,,if your area uses channel 3 for broadcast, set your rf output to chann 4 , and vice versa.

Significant volume decrease when using Comcast cable box


you might have to talk to comcast about that most signals are low for reasons of conservation of bandwidth, they may also be sending 5.1 which tends to be lower volume and adds surround in.
mono is always loud, and that is what you get with 75 ohm coaxial cable (single screw in ).
hope this helps.

The sound just stops dead


I have the exact same problem. Try to crank up the volume from your stereo/receiver and lower the volume in the headphones. I think that the headphones goes into standby mode if the volume is to low. Works for me (for two days, so its not really a fact yet ;-) )

Rear Speaker volume too low


Channel level output can be adjusted in the menu if you have the remote. Set the rear channel level volume higher and the fronts lower if need be, and then turn up the volume. Enjoy!
