My headphones have been acting up for a while where the sound on the left side of my headphones is higher than the right side. Now, usually i'd just:


Right-click volume icon and go to -> Sound -> Playback -> Speakers -> Levels -> Balance


and just increase the R side to level the sound so it's the same on both sides of my headphones.


Well, this isn't working anymore. Now when i adjust either the L or R side; it just increases/decreases the levels for both sides and the left side of my headphones will stay louder. So when i increase/decrease the L side; volume goes up/down on both sides of my headphones and the same applies to the R balance slider.


Hope that explanation was clear and i'd muchly appreciate any help i can get.  :)

 Hi RBTS and welcome to our forums.



Sorry to hear about the sound issues.


To try and identify if we are looking at a hardware or software/operating system problem, please borrow a known good working set of headphones and see if the problem is solved, if it is then its pointing towards software/operating system issues so at least we will know where to focus our attention.


As well as trying known working good headphones, please alo try a set of speakers.... any difference?
