    Thanks Tonyb, mines doesn't have a Loudness Equalization under enhancements as this is what's on the list:
    Environment
    Voice Cancellation
    Pitch Shift
    Equalizer
    Headphone Virtualization

    For whatever reason, after a few reboots, however, the static is now gone when headphone virtualization is chosen. I tried to simulate someone's screenshot on the ASUS Republic of Gamers forums of how to do the a similar sound to THX TruStudio but not sure if I have it 100% correct as the equalizer doesn't show the exact setting in -+dB's and how the 500 setting is as I can't tell if it's in the middle or if it's adjusted.

    I think it doesn't exist on the notebook because I noticed the desktop Realtek's calls Headphone Virtualization as Virtual Surround as well.

    Looking at those images the Realtek drivers sound fine on older motherboards as my old Cyberpower PC and my mothers older Dell. As with the screenshot I am quoting this is how it looks on the Microsoft HD Audio device.

    However on the newer Dell computer I have they sound terrible because I don't even get the same Enhancements tab and I get the Dell audio panel which makes the sound colorized echo even worse.

    @Tonyb, right before you responded earlier today, I was looking at Realtek HD Audio Manager equalizer by googling it and saw a few videos and they all looked like what you posted. Not sure if it's because of the notebook or if it's just because our devices only have 2 channels (front left and front right) but I'm not seeing the nVidia HDMI output either under the Playback tab. I was always wondering why nVidia was listed under Sound devices in device manager as I thought nVidia only handled Video unless it was a motherboard chipset. On my desktop, I use dedicated sound cards like the SoundBlaster Audigy 4 Pro which has dedicated ram on board and doesn't use system resources so it's different. Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Pro Sound Card - Newegg.com

    Loudness if the term is correct is basically boosting the bass as Sony on their discman calls it Megabass while Aiwa which was 51% Sony owned and now 100% Sony owned calls it Loudness, Aiwa also had something called BBE which boosted the mid-range and treble. I'm surprised the pre-sets for the eq on realtek don't actually make it sound fuller compared to manually setting the equalizer which has a bigger effect.

    MY nvidia geforce gtx 660TI has audio thru HDMI that is why it is listed there it has it's own audio chipset.

    Interesting, how does yours look in the device manager because I have a bunch of nVidia High Definition Audio devices listed as well but it doesn't show up in the playback devices... The video card is a GeForce GTX560m.

    More interesting, I have way more Nvidia HD Audio's listed but it's not showing up in speakers on the sound icon. Also, Loudness Equalization is supposed to be standard on Windows but no where to be found on my system.

    the audio options vary from many different computers & configurations so most but not all users will have the Loudness Equalization option available and a few others won't.

    note to Brink: v7620 (9/22/2015) posted 9/27 on MS Update Catalog for 32bit & 64bit Windows 10 (non-IE users, click on either the 32bit & 64bit links to download the cab file)
