All Headets Left Channel Louder

 Share

In the past week I have noticed that my left channel is about 20% louder than my right channel on ALL my headsets on my computer. They are different models and all of them are louder on the left than right. I made sure the windows balance is even and at 100L and 100R is when I can notice how much louder my left channel is. I have tried all the ports on my computer, used different connectors and tried USB adapters. Going into device manager and deleting the audio drivers did not fix them.

Might it be your ears? If you put your headphones on "backwards", so left pad on right ear and right pad on left ear, does the louder side switch sides?

When you checked the windows balance, were you under control panel sound? I have had this happen and Windows settings said one thing and control panel said another. Also maybe another application causing the issue.

Originally thought it was my ears because my iPhone's headphones were louder in the left as well, but I bought new earpods and the sound on them is balanced again. My computer headset is louder when swapped around in my right ear.

I used control panel to get to the sound and sound in the bottom right. Sound settings in window's settings are also the same when changed. As for a specific application I do not know what may be causing it because there were no audio driver updates in the past week as far as I researched and I downloaded nothing else. I could understand that if the audio was bad being directly plugged into the motherboard that maybe the audio chip was failing, but using USB and non-realtek options confuses me.
