Many of us have experienced a situation where the audio from our headphones has suddenly become very low. It is often accompanied by a hissing or buzzing sound and sometimes can be more severe than just losing a few low frequencies. Why did my headphones lose their low frequencies? There are many possible reasons for this, but in most cases it is due to poor wiring. In order to troubleshoot this issue, the first thing you need to do is ensure that your audio cable is not too long and is correctly fitted to your headphone.
Many times if we connect our headphones without using the audio cable, we will get great sounds and also very low frequency. This is due to the fact that the headphones allow far less resistance than traditional headphones to transmit the audio frequency. The audio quality will be greatly reduced and will not compare well with those of regular headphones. To remedy this problem simply ensure that your audio cable is fitted properly and that your headphones are not being held tightly against your ears.
In addition to poor audio quality, your headphones could also be suffering from another reason. That reason is over-filling. Most cheaply made headphones have tiny little holes at the tops and bottoms of the ear pieces. Over-filling these holes will cause the frequency of your audio to be lower than it should be, causing your headphones to lose their low frequencies.
Your battery may also be running low on power, causing your headphones to lose their audio quality as well. Low battery levels are one of the main causes for poor sound quality when using headphones. This is especially true if you regularly listen to music with any type of external noise, such as a radio, CD player etc. By charging your batteries fully you can ensure that they provide you with an optimum listening experience. If you do not charge your battery fully then the frequencies will be too high.
Low frequency is much easier to hear than high frequency. When you listen to music with a high frequency, you tend to hear it as well as everyone else. This is because your ears are not able to pick up the higher frequencies because your brain does not have the necessary equipment needed to decipher them. However, when listening to audio with a low frequency you may not be able to hear it at all; this is because your brain is unable to decode the audio signal due to its insufficient ability to distinguish between high and low frequency.
This means that your headphones need to work harder on promoting the frequencies that you do hear. This is why many people suffer from muffled audio. The best way to combat this problem is to use a powerful volume boost circuitry. Some headphones come with this built in, but if yours does not, then you can buy a separate power amplifier to solve the problem. With a separate power amplifier you will not only get rid of any background noise that your audio may have, but you will also be able to adjust the volume levels accordingly.
