The headphone port consists of small metal ridges which come in contact with the lines on the connector portion of the headphones. If these are pushed in it may not be able to emit sound without headphones because it believes headphones are plugged in. Likewise, if the logic board believes these are plugged in no sound will be emitted without headphones ...

Hy buddy, I am with the same problem. I am 99% sure that it's the bluetooth capacity that does it. In my case, when I use only the bluetooth headphone, it's all fine, but when I connect the keyboard and mouse (bluetooth), than the sound fails/gaps/lag. A detail is that, if I change my bluetooth headphone to headset mode (which reduces the quality of sound) ...

Ideally, you would follow the recommendations of the WavTap developer and the Airparrot developer on how to uninstall their extensions. But there are almost certainly files related to WavTap and Airparrot in the Extensions folder of the Library folder of the startup disk: /Library/Extensions/ … which you can delete and then reboot in order to get rid of ...

Flash has a control panel is system preferences that you can make these settings changes. In my version (admittedly older) there is a tab for "Camera and Mic" where you can manage camera and microphone settings by site/

I had this same problem with my MacBook Pro, and used the technique described by dennismuys. I inserted and removed my headphone plug about a dozen times, and the internal speakers started working again. I have no idea what could possibly have gotten in the jack to keep the switch from closing. Lint maybe.

Try picking up some compressed air and using it to blow out any dust or debris that might be in the headphone jack. Make sure to first expel any liquid build (white frost-like substance) before you spray in the headphone jack. You can also try fishing around in there (gently) with a ridiculously small flathead screwdriver. One question for you, is there a ...

I just had this same problem. I didn't realise straight away but it must have happened after taking out my headphones. I accidentally solved it by doing the following: Make sure your headphones are plugged in and sound is working. Alt-click the speaker icon at the top of the screen, then click on 'Sound Preferences'. On the sound preferences screen, unplug ...

If you are concerned about the volume level, try headphones that have between about 16 and about 32 ohm impedance and with a high sensitivity (dB/mW), say more than about 90 or 100. There are headphones with over 110dB/mW sensitivity with impedance in that range. If the output impedance of the device is a bit lower than the input impedance of the ...

For this, you'll need two microphones. One can be anything, like a headphone, dynamic, condensed, etc. The other has to be anything on a stand. You have to use the second microphone as the Skype input, and the first one as Logic's. You then aim the second mic on the Mac's Built in output, the first you're talking into. Then you put all your effects on. Hope ...

For the past 8 months or so I've been using the free Orban Loudness Meter to do metering on arbitrary audio signals on my Mac. It has pretty good support for snooping on the real audio interfaces I have connected to my machine. And when its built-in snooping doesn't work, I'll route audio through it using SoundFlower. The UI isn't pretty but it is by far ...

I have a very similar issue on my 2012 retina display MacBook Pro. Since the latest update 10.9.4 there has been a delay in the volume adjustments for both the speakers and headphone jack when using the volume buttons on the keyboard. The delay is of 3 or 4 seconds. I can bypass this delay using the volume adjustment on my menu bar at the top right of my ...

You don't need special hardware for this. Plug in both headphones, then open Audio Midi setup from /Applications/Utilities. Click the plus in the lower left corner and choose "Create Multi-Output Device." Check the checkboxes beside both headphones in the new panel on the right. If you want to rename it, you can double click the new entry in the list on the ...

It seems there are many options. If you are going to edit the audio in Logic Pro you can extract the audio when importing the file there as well.

I think I found a quicker and easier fix. At least it works for me. When the volume keys don't respond (happens pretty often and I haven't figured out why) I simply put the computer in sleep mode then re-awaken it. Takes a few seconds but it works every time.

After googling a while finally I came up with the solution. The file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.iapd.plist seems to track external devices connected to the iphone. If this file is removed, these devices cannot be selected by Airplay. I'm not sure which are the implication of removing that file and if I restore it, the Airplay functionality would ...

Have you checked the Control Center for Airplay devices? Normally all Audio capturing devices are listed there. You can check by opening Control Center (swipe up from the bottom) while connected. Now there should be an Airplay Icon and some text "AirPlay". I'm not really sure where exactly it is on an iPhone 4S, I believe somewhere at the bottom. Tap on the ...

When you are using a digital out device, the Mac simply passes the digital signal to the receiving device where the settings should be adjusted, this is the correct behavior. Unless your Mac is mistaking the headphones as a digital device when they are really analog, then this isn't a Mac issue. To determine if it is a Mac issue I'd try plugging in another ...

You can't! What I do is either "Quit iTunes" or delete the tract (I only delete if I already have the song on a DVD; I can add it back to my library at a later date). iTunes is not user friendly. I use it sparingly.
