  1. Spatial sound doesn't work on left earbud


    Hello, I have a problem with every headphones/earbuds that I try. With spatial sound enabled Windows Sonic, I can only hear audio that outputs to my right earbud meaning the left one outputs nothing, but only if that audio is spatial itself example: music on left side; voice on right side. If the audio isn't spatial, both earbuds output the same audio. This also applies to videogames, but the audio is always spatial so only my right earbud works. How do I fix this?

    :)

  2. Spatial Sound

    Hi,

    The Spatial Sound feature is available in Windows 10 but by default, it has been disabled. To enable it, follow the steps below:

    • In the notification area, right-click on the sound icon.
    • In the context menu, click on Playback devices.
    • Select your playback device and then click on Properties.
    • Click on the Spatial sound tab.
    • Select the Spatial sound format you want to apply.

    Get back to us if there is anything else. We'll be glad to help.
