i7 unibody macbook pro headphone jack audio super crunchy :(

Post by Hungry_Man » Fri Feb 04, 2011 4:35 pm

Does anyone else think the audio coming out the headphone jack on the i7 unibody macbook pro sounds super crunchy on the high end and clipping the low end? Its painful to listen to. I'm sure its a driver thing but mine shows no available updates. Anyone any ideas besides using an external soundcard?

Is there a choice of audio drivers for the internal graphics card? maybe mine arrived damaged :(

I don't have that issue here. I use good Grado headphones, too. But 99% of the time I do use a Duet external because it sounds so much better. The internal DA is nothing special, so you minds well invest in a decent external.
