  1. Sound switching problem

    Hello, don't know if this problem was ever posted or not.
    Whenever i am playing a game, i feel like switching between wired earphones and laptop's speakers once in a while. but when i do, the game mutes itself, or continues playing only through the speakers. the only solution is to exit the game and start it again, and that's kinda annoying for me. Is there a fix for this?
    Thanks in advance

    Btw, using Windows 10 2004, May update

    If the steps does not work. We suggest downloading a fresh copy of the audio driver from Realtek and see if it helps.

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Sound switching problem :p

    Sound Quality

    One thing that sticks out from looking at your "My Computer" specs. You list "ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)" which suggests you do not have the correct sound hardware driver. Your motherboard has Realtek sound and the first step is to install the Realtek sound drivers. My ASUS also came with Sonic Studio 2 which is a sound enhancement package. Check the ASUS install disc to see if you have something similar.

    May not be a speaker problem.
