Code 50 Amplifier. Recently purchased.
Using the headphone jack, the volume output to headphones is quite low. I have to increase the Code 50 Main control as well as the guitar volume control when I plug in headphones. Is this normal for the Code 50? I use Audio Technica ATH-M30X (47 ohm) studio monitor headphones, as well as AKG (32 ohm) phones.
I do not have this issue using my other amplifier, which is a Fender amp. With that amp, very little volume adjustment is needed when I plug in my phones.
Mine acts the same way. I guess it's normal? It keeps us from blowing our ears out:)
Unfortunately you find the problems only when you own a CODE (100 Combo in my case). I would have never expected that the headphone volume is at a level that I can hardly hear it (no, my ears are not damaged) ... my phone can drive the headphone 5 times harder (and that is still safe).
If that is something that can be fixed in firmware, I woudl really appreciate it - even if I have to press the OK button 3 times to confirm that I will not hold Marshall responsible for any damage caused by "high" volume.
