Solved!

Audio way too loud and doesn't have bass

HP Recommended
Victus by HP 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop PC 16-e0000 (2V8Z4AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

Hello!
I've recently bought this laptop (HP victus 16), opened it and let it update until it's up to date

My issue is that the audio is too loud on my headphones. My volume's below 10 but it feels like I'm listening at 100 volume

Also it seemed like that the audio lost its bass

 

I did check my headphones if it works fine on other devices which it does

I did try disabling audio enhancements etc.

I appreciate your efforts to try and resolve the issue. Let's adjust the sound preferences:

And, also try the below workaround:

  • 3) In the new pane, click the Enhancement tab, check the box next to Equalizer, and select the sound setting that you want from the Setting drop down list. Then click OK to save your settings.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

I cannot simply follow every step that you mentioned. It's been 2 weeks since I bought this laptop. I have an HP VICTUS Ryzen 7 and i too have no bass whatsoever. It's like all the money down the drain. No sub frequencies especially. And the irony is, im a music producer and had purchased the laptop specifically for sound design.. please help, please help, please help!!!!! 

 

Please also notify the concerned authorities that realtek audio is a actually pretty incompetent driver. This issue has given me nightmares and anxiety. PLEASE HELP!!

As per your step by step guidance, im unable to locate "sounds" after right clicking the volume icon, cant locate an "enhancement tab" or "equalizer"

 

I'm circling around cluelessly. Please provide a solution. I also checked for recent updates, it's all up to date.. YET NO BASS!!!! I don't understand.

Thank you for posting back. 

 

Here is the screenshot of the sound options. 

 

Let's try this workaround: 
Firstly, open Settings.

  1. Click on System.
  2. Click the Sound page on the right side.
  3. Under the "Output" section, click the Speakers setting.
  4. Under the "Output settings" section, click the Advanced option for the "Enhance audio" setting.
  5. Click the Levels tab.
  6. Click the Balance button.
  7. Change the left and right volume settings (as needed).
  8. Click the OK button.
  9. Click the Apply button.
  10. Click the OK button.
  11. Once you complete the steps, the audio should play more balanced in the output device.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
