I've recently bought Sennheiser HD-215 headphones to replace Senheiser PC Headphones. With the new headphones I hear a lot of fan or hard disk noise coming from the headphones themselves. The older headphones had a little bit on the cord with a volume knob. I guess that also contains some filter that filters out these noises.
Does anyone know a good way to get rid of fan noise coming through the headphones?
PIBKAC: I just tried playing something and realized there is an immense difference in volume between the two headphones. It's enough to have the soundcard at about 20% volume to for the HD-215 and at that volume I can't hear any of the interference.
