Dear Piotr,

I will see if we can lower the volume.

I vote for that too! Indeed I've found the Nano headset outpout a bit too loud with the HD-25.

Dear Friends,

I have checked with our engineers.

We will widen the headphone volume control range.

We will do this after we release our next Public Beta, as we do not want to delay the next release.

Audio Monitor Out Volume?

Did this ever make the latest beta release? Or did I miss it?

Thanks!

Dan...

Is this something we can add before the next release goes golden? Those wider headphone volume parameters would come in handy on a shoot I'm on. This time, it needed to be louder.

Thanks!

And in my case - quieter, as while recording in a classical music venue, I cannot afford my headphones being louder than the actual music being played.... This would simply annoy the audience!

Get closed headphones, such as the Sennheiser HD 280 Pro. Your audience will not hear a beep!

I do have those Sennies (mk II) - but you know, sometimes you need to take your headphones off... Yes, you can always unplug them first - but still...

I use my Sennheiser HD 280 Pro all the time, even while watching TV or DVD/BD. When I take them off, I cannot hear the sound inside them at all. It has even happened I got worried my sound mixer was not working, so I put the phones back on to diagnose the problem. There was no problem: When I had them on, I could hear everything, when I took them off, I heard nothing (I mean nothing coming from them, I could hear all the sounds in my environment of course).

Not all Sennheiser phones are closed, but the HD 280 Pro are.

My mistake, Adam - I'm using the HD 25-1 mk II, not the 280 :)

Dear Friends,

The headphone output level is adjusted in the Audio|Audio Settings menu, it is labeled Gain Out.

The range of headphone output level is limited, in my opinion.

I will attempt to get this range increased in the next firmware release.

Audio Headphone level settings

I just checked the audio DAC design and it appears that we can add a volume control ranging from +12 dB to -102 dB (in 0.5dB steps) to the headphone levels. I will speak to our engineers about adding this control to a near term firmware update.

Best-

Did you really mean the negative value to be -102, or did you mean -12? Because -102 dB sounds a bit extreme, especially with those 0.5 dB steps.
