What I also don't understand is why the threshold volume goes from inaudible to painfully loud with maybe a 1 degree turn of the knob. Any insight from the Sov users out there?
The reason the threshold is getting increased most likely the knobs are being brushed with the headphone cord and causing the knob to turn to a louder position, it is a common occurence with the sovereign series, the knobs are not not set very deep inot the faceplate and they are easily brushed during a hunt
