Hearing sounds I have never heard before

    So my home theatre system has always been based around my Xbox one. And I run a plex server alongside as well. I always thought being a gaming system the sound output from the Xbox would be superior but I have recently added an Apple Tv 4K with my sound system and guess what, I am hearing sounds...

    MacBook Pro 16" clicking sound bottom case

    Hi there, I recently got my MBP 16'. When I rest my palm on my case it makes a creaking sound when even the slightest bit of pressure is applied to the wrist/palm rest area. With me it is on the left side next to the trackpad. You can try it yourself by pressing slightly on the mentioned area...

    AirPods vs EarPods shipped with iPhones?

    Does anybody know if there is an actual sound quality difference between the 1-2 generation AirPods (regular, not Pros) and the stock wired EarPods that Apple includes with their iPhones? As they both look nearly identical, do they use different drivers or do AirPods basically equal EarPods...

    All Devices AirPlay to HomePod from iPad/iPhone No Longer Plays Just Sound

    I'm not certain if this relates to the firmware on iPadOS/iOS 13 or HomePod, but I used to be able to airplay just audio to my HomePod and watch video on my iPad Pro 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. Now if I use any app: Spectrum, Infuse Pro, Apple TV+, anytime I select one of my HomePod's to play just the...

    Terrible experience with the MBP16 2019

    My experience so far with the new MBP16 is terrible, a bunch of minor, but very annoying, issues: 96W charger makes some static/buzzing noise while charging the notebook (idk if it's just mine or it's "by design", anyway it's ridiculous for an expensive notebook) Ghosting (reports from many...

    True Wireless Stereo earbuds. What is the deciding factor?

    Dear All, The TWS market is "booming" and nearly all respectable electronic brands will pull out TWS earbuds. Apple nailed it down with the AirPod Pro's and cover nearly all aspects of what a good TWS should be in my humble opinion. Nevertheless no TWS can have it all and one way or another...

    AirPod Pros-Flying?

    I love my new AirPod Pros and will be flying this Friday. Has anyone tried them on a flight yet, and if so, did they ANC really come through? It would save space to not bring my Bose QC ones.

    Macbook Pro 2012 Sound Issues

    Hi, I recently bought a second hand macbook air, and for the most part, the speakers don't work, although I have on occasion been able to get them to work, once after I reset the OS and another after I played around with ending audio processes within the activity monitor. I also tried installing...

    Using Macbook Pro with only 1 speaker

    I am using a single Rokit 6 monitor speaker for sound from my Macbook Pro. It is connected with a single cable from the RCA jack to the headphone jack on my mac.
