Windows 10: Very, very odd issue with audio playback

    Very, very odd issue with audio playback

    So I've ran into my share of quirky issues with windows 10 thus far, but none as interesting, frustrating, and quirky as this one.

    I use iPhone 5 Earpods (if that is the correct name), though I don't think that is relevant to the issue here. When I am playing music it generally sounds HiFi-ish. There's essentially no bass to it. I haven't used a laptop to play music is quite a while so I wasn't sure if that was what they had sounded like (I much prefer some my Sony MDRs and sound card on the desktop). So I went into the 'Sound' menu and was trying to see if there was an equalizer or config options to change. Nothing helpful. The Earpods do have a microphone on them, and the laptop detects it. I go to the 'microphone' tab and the playback suddenly changes to what the headphones sound like. I haven't the slightest clue what's going on or how to fix it, so I've come here.

    SHORT STORY: I own iPhone Earpods. Laptop sound playback is all treble (they have small subs in them). In Windows default sound menu, when the 'microphone' tab is open, I get the correct audio definition. What in the world is going on, and how do I fix it?
