I have had my FWC788 for three plus years now and it sounds great.
I have one question about it that has always irritated me and thats with headphones. Whenever I connect headphones with it (I use Sony MDRV600; Ive tried others though) no matter how high I turn the volume it sounds very quiet. I pretty much just use my computer now if I want to listen to music at nights (which is no problem) but wonder if theres anyway to get the volume to be loud on this stereo with headphones or why it seems so quiet? I've had plenty of cheap radios and other name brand stereos at half the cost of this one that never had this tiny issue with it.

Re: Volume with Headphones
The unit probably has resistors or a limitor curcuit to limit the amount of audiop going out on the headphones. It could probably be modifyed but it would possiblt burn out the headphones as this is a 280watt peak power unit . Its there so you dont blow out your ears.you could use some wireless self powered headphones as that would solve your problem!! Good Luck

The volume of the sound source (Mac) must be sufficient, otherwise the transmitter automatically turns off. Turn up the volume on the Mac, and turn down the volume on the headphones. There is no way to disable the Automatic On/Off function of the transmitter.
Could be possibly dirt in Ipad headphone jack (common prob) - put a drop of isopropyl alcohol in Ipad jack - just a drop. You might also check headphones in a computer jack to verify if it is possibly the headphones.
1. you headphone is a problem(broken) try to plug it on another computer or television, if the same then get new one.
if it work well with other computer then
2.open volume panel. double click on the volume icon on the taskbar there will be headphone icon, if not select option, check all the box, maximize all volume, remember the upper volume control(horzontal) must be in the middle.
if you using realtek, open by double click the icon, and select headphone.
I suffer from hearing loss badly. I've had three different Sennheiser headphones over the years so I can listen to the TV at a level good for me without it blasting for the rest of the House. The ones I have currently are HDR 170 they are AWESOME! Can adjust bass treble as well as volume up and down but they are very comfortable over the ear headphones. Their best feature is the way they sound. Man you won't be disappointed especially listening to music through these. They're great! Cordless, rechargeable, long playing too. I get about a good 12 hrs out of a chargecould get more but want them for the night. Hope this helped. Go to a store that sells them if you can maybe Best Buy etc. try em out. Then shop for cheapest price as they're not cheap.
Unfortunately, I believe this is by design. The knob does not control the volume of the headphone jack on those speakers. The best you can do is set the volume control in Windows so that the headphone volume is acceptable and turn the knob up higher for speaker listening.
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 ;-) )
