  1. Headphones sound is coming from opposite ear windows 10


    my headphones which are the Plantronics rig 300hx, the sound is coming from the opposite ear, for example if im playing fortnite and I open a door on the right, the sound comes from the left headset ear. my temporary solution is to wear them backwards, wondering if there was a setting to switch the sound around and if anyone could help me. By the way, I use a laptop that is connected to my monitor, not a pc.

    :)

  2. Headphones are plugged in, but the sound doesn't come through.

    Hi,

    Please follow the below mentioned steps to set the Headphone as the default device:

    Open Control Panel and select Sound.

    When the Sound dialog appears click the Playback tab.

    Verify if the Headphone is listed and the right sound card listed under playback devices.

    If so, right click the Headphone device and click on default playback device.

    If they are not listed, Right click on the blank space and click on show disabled device.

    If the Headphone gets listed,

    Right click the “Headphone” select “Enable”. Right click the “Headphone” again and select “Set as default device” from the same list.

    Click “Ok”. Now remove and reconnect the Headphone and check.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Engr. Jamshed Muhammad

  3. Sound simultaneously coming from headphones and speakers Windows 10

    Description of audio problem Windows 10 HP laptop

    When my headphones are plugged in, sound issues from both the headphones and the laptop’s speaker. (When I remove the headphones from my ears, I can still hear sound coming out from the speaker, as if the headphones were not plugged in.) In short,
    my laptop will not fully recognise my headphones; it ‘half-recognises’ headphones because sound simultaneously comes from the headphones and the speaker. My laptop has a 64 bit operating system. I have tried rolling back and updating the RealTek drivers, have
    installed Windows Updates, have run antivirus scans, and have searched tech forums for answers.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    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.
