Creating a separate thread for this issue because I think it is an important one and slightly different than the post I brought it up under initially.
Issue is with the headphone output. If the headphone jack or cord gets pulled slightly when jamming/jiggles or gets slightly dislodged the headphone out stops working suddenly after a popping noise. Once this happens I get output only from one ear. Requires power off and on and then it works again.
I created a support ticket and Rob described this as a protective feature of the headphone chip to protect the machine or headphones from issues with impedance?
If this is not preventable this makes live performance use almost impossible since you cant power on and off in the middle of a set. Anyone else experiencing this? I want to get a sense of if this is an issue with my headphones or something others have had. For studio use, it is not as big a deal although slightly annoying and painful to my ears (pop is loud).
