This is a discussion on Uneven Audio Through Headphones within the Sound Cards forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. Headphones: ATH-40xs.
Computer Specs: Windows 10, Not using a dedication sound card but Maximum VI Hero Motherboard's integrated audio (
Issue: The level of audio output is roughly 40% quieter in my right ear than in the left with all sound levels equal (In other words: Left ear is 40% louder than the right). In order to get equal output (roughly) I've gone into Playback devices --> Properties --> Levels --> Balance and adjusted the left to be at 60 when right is 100. This solution is not very good, as I'm forced to listen to music and play games at a reduced overall level.
Tested with music and Realtek's Speaker Configuration sound.
I've tested multiple pairs of headphones into both the front and back panel 3.5mm Line Out jacks.
I tested my ATH-40xs in my iPhone and another computer, the sound was fine so it is NOT the headphones and it is NOT the audio cord. I also tried different audio cords, still no luck.
I tested audio using a USB pair of headphones and the audio was fine. This means this issue is exclusive to the Line Out Jacks, both front and back.
I've tested using this video:

When I start in Safe Mode it takes a long time to load mup.sys but that could just be because it's the last one to load.

2 different computers hangs in the same way. Hi dear people.
My old computer started to get issues with random freeze ups, and I did everything I could do. Updated drivers, ran all sorts of scans and checkups, virus free, dust free, formatted the computer, and before instaling any of my programs I still had the same issue. Nothing showed up...
