Position of headphone sockets and arm rest

Post by marioair »

Is it just me or is the combination of armrest and headphone jacks a bad design?

I find that if you put weight on the arm rest it folds down beyond the horizontal position, which is annoying in itself (can that be fixed/tightened up?) but also it then puts pressure on the headphone leads

I've never seen the problem you describe. On my DA62, the movable armrest never drops below a level horizontal position.

Perhaps your armrest installation can be adjusted.

Thanks.

I wouldn’t say it “drops”. But if you actually put your arm/elbow on it, it folds down past horizontal.

Anyone know if this can be tightened/adjusted. Does this happen for anyone else?

Likewise. With my arm on or off the armrest, it never drops below horizontal and has never interfered with the headset jacks at all.

Add to that - it never drops below horizontal.
