    Headphones are recognised but no sound (Windows 10)


    Hello all,
    I hope you are having a good day.
    I've been having the following issue since yesterday: My headphones are recognised by Windows and the sound meter is even active when I play something, but I cannot hear a single thing. I already tried other headphones that didn't work as well, but a third pair of headphones with USB worked fine for some reason. I already tried a lot of things
    1. First thing I did was update Windows
    2. Look for driver updates
    3. See if headphones are listed as the default device (They are)
    4. Change the enhancement options.
    Without results sadly.
    I would appreciate it if someone had advice.

    :)

    Bluetooth not recognising headphones

    Bluetooth on my PC recognises, pairs with and works with an ear piece headphone/mic.
    Bluetooth on my Smartphone recognises, pairs with and works with an Ausdom headphone.
    Therefore all hardware works.

    However, PC Bluetooth will not recognise, let alone pair with, Ausdom headphone.

    I have tried re-boots, turning Bluetooth on/off, uninstalling, re-loading drivers, etc. I have run out of ideas.

    Any suggestions please?

    No sound through headphones

    Hello Sander,

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    I certainly understand your concern and will try my best to help you.

    I really appreciate all your efforts in trying to fix the issue.

    In order to understand the issue more clearly, I would request you to provide me with the following information.


    • What is the make and model of the headphones?

    • Have you tried connecting the headphones to another jack or another computer and checked if they are working?
    Make sure your headphones aren't plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers
    automatically cut the sound to the speakers. Ensure the headphone is fully and firmly inserted into the correct jack. Plug in the headphone and see if the same shows up in Device Manager.

    I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    Run inbuilt Hardware and Device troubleshooter and check if it works. Follow the steps given below.

    Note:
    If your computer is having problems with a recently installed device or other hardware, try using the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to fix the problem. It checks for common issues and makes sure that any new device or
    hardware attached to your computer was installed correctly.


    • Press Windows Key +R, type
      Control Panel.

    • Type troubleshooting
      in the search bar, click on troubleshooting.

    • Click on Hardware and Sound, click on
      Hardware and Devices.

    • Follow the steps from the wizard to run the troubleshooter.
    If issue persists, follow method 2.

    Method 2:

    Check with the volume settings. Please follow the steps given below and check if it helps.


    • Right click on the speaker icon in taskbar and select volume control options.

    • Put a check mark on "All devices currently playing sound".

    • Make sure you have "The default communication device unchecked".

    • Place a check mark on both speakers and headphones. Click Apply and OK.
    If issue persists, follow method 3.

    Method 3:

    This happens when you have the speakers set to default. We need to set the headphones as default. Please follow the steps given below and check if it helps.


    • Perform the task mentioned below to set speakers as default.

    • Go to Start and click on control Panel.

    • Click in Sound, then a new window will open up.

    • In the new windows click on the tab "Playback" and right click in the window and click on Show Disabled devices.

    • Now check if the headphone is listed there and right click on it and choose enable.

    • Highlight that headphone and click on "Set as Default".

    Also try to install latest chipset drivers in the system and check if it helps.

    The above steps holds good for Windows 10 as well.

    Also, I would suggest you to refer to the suggestions provided by
    “Preethu” replied on April 22, 2015 in the following Microsoft Community link and check if that helps.
