Headphone Audio Quality is Freakingly bad

Pavilion X2 Detachable
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I got Pavilion X2 three days ago. I installed needed drivers through HP assist. But whenever I listen to music with headphones, the audio quality becomes bad, lack of bass and clarity. I checked B&O play and the headphones setting is faded and it says device unplugged although I have plugged well. Is that audio driver problem? Or just the beo play software itself?

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums!

I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion x2 Notebook and the sound quality not the greatest. You could try:


1. Right click the Speaker icon in the bottom right corner by your time.
2. Click Playback Devices.
3. Click Speakers.
4. Click properties.
5. Click the advanced tab on the Properties window.
6. Change the Default Format drop-down to the highest quality.
7. Apply the properties.
8. Click OK to close the properties window. Restart your Notebook and try the sound.

 

If that does not help.Here is troubleshooting for this issue with Windows 10. Restart your Notebook. 

 

Please let me know how this goes.

Hey @Waiyanminn,

 

In the Device Manager, right-click on Double-click on Sound, video, and game controllers and select ALL the Audio Drivers and Software. Choose the option to uninstall the Driver Software. After it is complete, restart your Notebook.

 

You could restore the BIOS to factory defaults, as this has helped others with this issue. Here is a document that will show you how to do this.

 

es not help please call us http://ow.ly/Xa6p5 They will be happy to try to assist you immediately.

 

Thanks

Disable Multistreaming in the General Settings of B&O Audio. Worked for me.
