Good for self made Attenuator?
Using good headphones I notice the white noise of my player (which is at a constant level independent of the audio volume). As white noise is very annoying, I am looking for a method to attenuate the headphone by about 10dB. This would result in a better signal/noise distance of 10dB, when I compensate the volume on the player.
Would it be possible to make an attenuated headphone by soldering in two micro resistors of let's say 100 Ohm in the "hot" wire?
Thank's for any advice.
