  1. Audio through one set of speakers (PC and XBOX)


    My PC is connected to my monitor via a DVI-D port and my Xbox is connected to my monitor via HDMI (my monitor only has one HDMI port)


    I want to be able to hear audio on the devices when i switch to them.


    Currently if I have my speakers plugged into my PC i can hear the audio from the PC and if i have the speakers plugged into my monitor I can hear from the Xbox.


    Is their a solution where i don't have to change the speaker plugs around every time I want to switch between the two.

    :)

    Move audio to one side for speakers but not headphones

    Hello J1mmyth3F1sh,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    • Is your headphones getting detected in the Playback settings?
    • Are you trying to play the audio on both Speakers and Headphones at the same time?

    Ideally, if you have configured Sound settings to play on your left speakers, the same goes with the headphones. The sound starts playing only on the left side of your headphones according to the settings changed.

    Meanwhile, we can try configuring the headphones and change the balance level in the sound settings and see if it works. Kindly check with the steps listed below and see if it helps.

    Method : Run audio test for your headphones.

    • Open Control Panel from the Start menu and click on
      Sound.
    • In the Sound window, click on your
      Headphones and select Configure option at the bottom left.
    • By running the test, check if both sides of your headphones are working fine.

    If that doesn’t help, I would suggest you to check with the audio balance by following the steps listed below:

    • Open Sound settings from
      Control Panel,
      and right click on the Headphones to open its
      Properties.
    • Click on Levels tab and select
      Balance
      button. In the Balance window, you can use the slider to balance both left and right headphones equally.

    However, I commend and appreciate you for recognizing this behavior. This is a valuable suggestion as there may be other users with a similar requirement. Hence, I suggest you to leave a
    Feedback for this product so
    that our developer team can look into this and check if it can be implemented in the future updates.

    Regards,

    Xbox One S Controller on PC as a Hands-Free Headset with horrible audio quality

    Hi Mikul,

    I realize the inconvenience that you are facing with Audio and Drivers.

    This issue might have occurred if the audio drivers are incompatible or not updated.

    To assist you better on the issue, I request to provide information on the following questions:


    • Is the issue specific to Xbox controller?

    • Are you facing similar issues related to Audio and connectivity?
    If you are facing similar issues with any other device as well, I suggest you to run the built in
    Audio Device Troubleshooter and update the Audio Drivers by following the steps below:

    Method 1: Run built in
    Audio Device troubleshooter, and check if the issue is resolved.

    Step 1: Type
    Troubleshooting in the search box next to
    Start button, and press Enter.

    Step 2: Click on
    View all from left side panel of the screen.

    Step 3: Select
    Playing Audio, click on Advanced
    option, and check Apply repairs automatically.

    Step 4: Follow the on screen instructions.

    Method 2: Update the audio drivers, and check if it helps.

    Audio inputs and outputs option.
