Yamaha AG06 Mixer - if I plug in my headphones completely into it, sound is distorted. If my headphones are only inserted slightly, then sound is fine




Basically I insert my headphones into the mixer fully, and sound sounds all weird and distorted. But if I remove the headphones slightly so it's not all the way in, then sound is fine. Wtf. Any ideas?

When removing it half way you're getting a mono signal, the signal for one side is being sent to both sides of your headphones, when you put it all the way in it sounds like there's a short and you're getting phase cancellation, this happens when the signal from either side play against one another and cancel all frequencies that are the same on both sides, if you're missing a lot of vocal when you push it all the way in that's what it is. Unfortunately that means there's a physical defect, either with your headphones or the mixer (or more likely your adapter). See if you can isolate the problem to one of those and I'll have a better understanding of what action to take.
