Pod Hd500x Foot Switch Noise

Recommended Posts

Alright so im hoping i can get some good help here. 

 

So I recently upgraded from the HD500 to the 500x. As soon as i started to play on the 500X, i noticed how loud the foot switches sound. They make a terrible, loud, "click" sound when playing through an amp. Is the problem my amp or the HD500X? Should i return my 500X for another one? Or is the problem universal? 

 

As a matter of fact, any contact with the device makes that "click" sound. Pressing down on buttons, toggling switches, moving knobs, etc... 

 

Please help. Thank you.

I haven't noticed any of that with mine.  Not sure why it would make that noise with everything.

I recently got the 500x and don't have this problem- switches have a standard mechanical click as per normal pedals but nothing transmitted through headphones/ amp in the way you describe.

What happens when you tap on your guitar cable with your foot?

Does it make the same sound?

I wonder if your HD unit is transferring any vibration through the cable?

Alright guys I fixed the problem. I had a headphone adapter in the aux input & it was causing the noise. Thanks anyway!

hey just wondering....what kind of adapter do you use? i have a sony one (not sure what size it is) but for some reason when i connect it into my PHONES input, i have to leave some of the adapter out, meaning that if i push the adapter all the way has the sound waaaaay to low and when i have it popped out maybe 1/2 a centimeter it sounds perfect..is there a reason for this? anybody else have this "issue"?
