Hi,

 

Recently I switched my headphone jack to the front panel in stead of connecting it directly in the motherboard in the back of the case. When I open OMEN Audio Control, I now have more options. For example the tab "Listening Experience" where I can turn on DTS , Headphone Enhancement and choose Stereo preference "Wide", "In front" or "Traditional" as well as "Content mode" with three options called "Entertainment", "Game" and "Sports".

On my Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 ohm headphone the quality is much better, sound is richer and wide. 
I'm curious why the front panel can deliver more customising and also delivering better quality than plugging it straight into the mobo? If anything, many posts I have read state that it should be the other way around?

 

Thanks in advance. 

Naalz

@naalz,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

Thank you for posting your query on this forum, it's a great place to find answers.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how you are getting better sound quality from the front headphone jack instead of the audio jack on the motherboard.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I would like to inform you that the front headphone jack is dedicated and designed to connect headphones and hence you get more options to control the audio settings for the headphones. The audio ports on the back are designed to connect speakers to the computer.

 

Hope that answers your question and you have a great day!
