    Headphones Bass issues Windows 10

    I have these OK quality headphones that are fine when I'm using it on any device accept for windows 10 devices.
    On windows devices the audio sounds almost mono and have no bass and I experienced this issue with my old headphones and someone helped me with it by changing drivers but with these headphones, it's a different story. I did EXCACTLY the same thing as before and I ALMOST fixed the issue I have better audio quality but there's only bass when I set the balance off (like L:20 & R:90) and It's a noticeable bass change because one side will start shaking while the other won't.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    What kind of amplifier are you using? What kind of DAC are you using? What kind of software are you using? What kind of motherboard/soundcard are you using?

    Windows 10 Pro,

    As my previous post indicated, lack of bass is mostly about the hardware that you are using and even the audio software that you are using, very, very seldom would an operating system have any effect on bass output, (maybe never). If you post your hardware and software, one of the fantastic folks here should be able to help you.

    No need for an "audiophile" DAC or amplifier to pump out "eargasmic" bass.

    I would probably think that there's a DSP software setting about crossover the LFE channel to the subwoofer port, making your headphones sound thin and anemic. I would look for any software related to sound and just configure your speakers as 2.0 or if there's a headphone setting available.

    You can also go to sound properties and disable all enhancements just to make sure that no audio frequency crossover is happening when listening to headphones.
