Headphone care question
      #1060361 - 02/08/13 09:47 AM
I have a pair of DT770 pro's and when not in use the ear pieces are touching, I have just realised that at times they are still getting a signal when like this. Can this damage them? should I always ensure that there is no signal when they are like this?

Thanks

I can't possibly see this being a problem. What makes you think it might ?

Thanks for getting back to me Chris

Just that the headphones are blasting away at each other in such close proximity, I imagined that this may cause some unwanted pressure or something.

I would hate to ruin a bit of kit through ignorance, I would rather ask those that know.

Always a good idea to turn things off when they're not being used -- and to turn volume controls down to avoid giving the next user a nasty surprise! -- but the situation you describe shouldn't cause any problems generally.

I can't see this being a problem either although I seem to remember seeing some headphones that would mute when not being worn (which would also help with vocalists who insist on taking off their loud headphones right next to the mic).
