Default YAMAHA DTX532K

Hi,
I've a new DTX532K, all is ok if I use it with my guitar ampli, the problem is when I use it with headphones, the Volume is very low, I have to put the max volume with DTX buttons, but is very low.
Any suggestions...I miss something?

Your headphones are most likely the incorrect impedance for a drum module. Try different headphones if you are able to. Guitar amps generally make drums sound lousy. Wrong frequency range altogether.

Also remember the headphone output is on the front panel.

Hope this helps,

This might sound stupid, but I've done it: Make sure you have it plugged in all the way. Some of those headphone jacks can be pretty tight. I've noticed that if I have it in partially, I can still hear sounds, but nowhere near as loud as they are supposed to be.

and just so you know, don't run your drums into a guitar amp. It's not made for it, and will sound terrible right up to the point that the amp kills itself.
Keyboard amps are fine to use.

Thank u whiteknightx, I'll search for it.
An other issue...what about apps for mac to connect yamaha drum?
Do you have any suggestion for any app, any suggestion for sounds to import in order to have sound close to the reality?
