I unboxed the Envy 13 today and the sound was quite good and as advertised at the first impression at noon. I connected to the internet and the system and a few drivers started updating in the background. Within an hour, while playing music form Youtube, there was a clattering noise at the left speaker that increased with raising the volume bar, while the sound volume got gradually reduced. The issue would repeat every time I turned on the music and tried to turn up the volume. After a few moments, the clattering went away, but that reduction bug stayed. Now, the speaker reaches that early good volume when I take the bar all the way up, only to get reduced on its own to quite dim. Also the speakers seem to be out of balance. The left was initially overperforming, and now its quite bad.
I believe my issue is similar to query by Neekol, except in my case its just the laptop speakers that are affected and this "enhancement tab" is doesn't exist.

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are facing issues with the audio on the computer.
Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.
I recommend you uninstall the audio driver from the device manager and then download and install the driver from the below link.
Here is how it is done.
- Type "Device Manager" into the search field to open the device manager console.
- Expand the node that represents the type of device that you want to uninstall, right-click the device entry, and click Uninstall.
- On the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click OK to start the uninstall process.
- When the uninstall process is complete, remove the device.
NOTE: On the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click the Delete the driver software for this device option to delete the driver package that was used for the device.
Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

The link is not able to provide me with the required drivers. It recognised the laptop, but there seems to be a major problem in compiling the drivers for this model. The site showed a buffering symbol for over 2 hours of waiting. I tired multiple times, but never passed the buffering stage.
