I installed this together with the CleanAmp Pro kit, so I can't really speak for each one's efficiency, but they seem like an effective combo, as my audio is pretty good now. I must say the audio on my GBC is still better but not bad at all.
After building out my GBA mod i found that my audio just went to absolute ****. I have an IPS screen, Light kit and audio amp installed. The humm and buzzing, especially when i used an ezflash omega cart, was unbearable. First I recapped my board with new capacitors, very small improvement. Next I added a Helder power cleaner mod and it basically did nothing for my audio. Finally I added this de-hum kit and at least 90% of my noise went away. There is still an extremely small amount of hiss when audio isn't playing, but its very bearable. I think these kits are a must if you add aftermarket mods like IPS screen/lights/amps/flash carts/etc. I'll be including one on every single GBA mod from here on out.
Installation wasn't the easiest. But I got it done at about half an hour. At first I thought it didn't work until I realized I was using a reproduction cartridge that had major hum on it. Once I used a uthentic GBA cartridge, I noticed that there was zero hum and zero hiss.
i use unleaded solder (99.3% tin/0.7% copper @ 350c) and the solder just wanted to whet up on the pads and not bridge between the ribbon and GBA. flux didnt help with that. wound up needing to use a wire to bridge most of the solder pads.
ive tested but even on volume off ive got a hum. i also have a amp and a CUI speaker installed. it might just be my GBA revision. but honestly ive not seen any kind of benefit from this,
Thanks for the review! We recommend using Leaded solder for all of our available mods; we have a soldering guide which you may find helpful for the future: https://wiki.handheldlegend.com/soldering-iron-guide
Just what I needed
I love this mod! It’s easy to install if you have a bit of attention to detail and it provides a clarity of sound for headphone users that is a must!
