    Windows Sound Equalizer


    Greetings Everyone!

    I recently got a new pair of headphones

    And the sound isn't perfect

    So I wanted to know if there is a equalizer to change windows sounds is it happens

    The in built one isn't great

    Thanks in advance!

    If by 'built in' you mean the EQ that you access by right clicking on the Player screen itself, then, no it's not great; neither is the one in system sounds which you access by right clicking on your speaker icon in the task bar, choosing 'Playback' then highlight the current output device and click properties, choose Enhancements tab, highlight and check mark 'Equalizer' in the list and go down to 'Setting' drop down menu or create a custom preset using the 'Browse' button to the right of that.
    You should also be able to access the same settings in your sound card's control interface usually found in Windows Control Panel.

    I've got 6.2.6200.16664 PnP drivers at the mo
    I've been through those settings and they don't really seem to help, there is something still of about the sound
    I just wanted a piece of kit that could define the sound a bit more

    Hello and welcome Asbowl2468. What kind of sound card/chip do you have? Usually the card manufacturer includes an equalizer in their software.

    Your chip seems to be made by C-Media. I found these, don't know if the will work. Will do another quick search.
