Headphone volume too low !!

Hai guys,

My headphone volume is too low even at max volume settings.. using windows 7 64bit ultimate.

Headphone : HS 320 (Creative).. tried with other 1-2 headphones.. all of them .. volume is too low !!

Realtek sound driver : 6.6.1.6662

Intel : DH55TC


No problems with speaker volumes.. its loud and clear (5.1 creative t6160)

Any help would be much appreciated.. !!

Has the headphone port on the front panel ever worked correctly? If not, it may be a defective front panel assembly (and/or cable) on the case. Although it shouldn't make a difference, use the HD Audio connector from the front panel to the motherboard audio connection. Many cases also have an AC97 audio connector, which is the older standard. If you have this you can try it, to see if the HD audio connector/cable is the problem.

If the speakers have proper volume but the Headphones do not plugged into the GREEN speaker jack on the rear it says there is a problem with the headset. That headset has a volume control on it, have you tried that?

Try opening up the Volume Mixer when the headphones are plugged in and make sure all the volume levels are turned up. You can open the mixer by clicking on the 'Speaker' in the notification corner and clicking 'Mixer'

If that doesn't work... By any chance are you using skype or a voice communication program when your headset is plugged in?

Can you try a different pair of headphones/multiple devices and see if they have issues? Cause if it is only the one pair of headphones... That would mean they are the problem (or at least they have compatibility issues with your machine)
