    I've tried the method the listed method, it says the best drivers for your device are already installed...
    It isn't your fault. The driver linked in the opening post isn't meant for regular Realtek Onboard Audio but specific intel ones with SST. You can download the 6.0.1.8470 version of the drivers through Microsoft Windows Update catalogue or your manufacturer's website, or google for 6.0.1.8485 set of drivers and download them from elsewhere.

    How do you determine that driver version A is better than driver version B? Just curious.
    I use 2 technically advanced devices called ears.

    Exactly. Try downloading 6.0.1.8470 and then updating:

    They're not that advanced, that's the issue, and can easily deceive you. Any sound engineer will tell you the same. I worked with sound like 5 years ago for a good while, and I kept the gear, including the soundproofing panels in the room and the Yamaha HS80M monitors, but I ditched some of the most costly stuff and some other stuff broke or is no longer compatible with Windows 10, so I'm using the monitors with the integrated Realtek chip, and all of these drivers are pretty much the same, to be honest. There was not one driver that stood out from the pack. This is why I would really love to see a changelog from Realtek, cause there are so many releases it's a bit ridiculous, and the only feature that's worth talking about IMO is the new UWP app and no longer having to download and install 300MB worth of stuff.

    I'm sure. But since sound is produced for human listening, it seems letting anything except the primary intended recipient be the ultimate determiner of quality is missing the mark. I can hear differences in some of the drivers, but I admit my years of piano tuning may have caused increased awareness of sound subtleties.

    I'm having the same issue with this driver. When I try to set my connected device to a headphone the Realtek HD Audio audio manager does not save my change and gives me the following error: "This device type is not supported!" Also this driver is loud as hell. With the 6.0.1.7727 my Windows volume is at 25, but with the 6.0.1.8470 even volume 10 is too loud.

    Try downloading the driver from your system manufacturer's site maybe?

    Ears can easily be fooled.

    I once fooled at least nearly 50 people in a single day on a local forum by simply modifying the device name in the driver *.inf in the early Vista era and labeling it as a custom driver package, that had zero improvements in it except for the change in name. But surprisingly, it got feedback like better treble, better bass, etc. and the numbers keep amassing, to the point I felt that if I told them the truth, they'd likely never take me seriously again.

    Not saying that people can't discern subtle differences in audio quality, but this perception of subtle or clearly distinguishable improvements in Realtek Audio Drivers with each passing update feels kind of wrong. But that's where it becomes subjective, and if you feel that there's genuine improvement and you're happy with it, I respect that.

    Do you compare stuff like CPU overhead, or do they produce subjectively better sound?
