Windows 7: Headphone Ears are Flipped

Headphone Left/Right Channels are Flipped

Any good way to flip them back to where they should be, setting/program-wise?

It looks like Power Mixer has a setting for it, but I cannot find it for the life of me.

Edit: it doesn't.

Could it be a mis wiring in the front panel assembly of the case? Are the PC speakers correct? Plug the head set into the GREEN speaker jack on the rear and see if you have the correct Left/Right.

I am using a splitter to split a 4-pole 3.5mm cable into two 3-pole 3.5mm cables. It alone is the cause of the issue; all other wiring is correct.

I've tried switching around the two 3-pole 3.5mm cables, but they both appear to flip channels.

Then there is no PC problem, just a cable with incorrect wiring. It probably has molded connectors and no way to fix it. Best to just dump it and get another that is wired correctly. I have a recording studio and several "Y" cables for running two headsets from one jack. I've never run into a "Y" cable that reversed the L/R.

I couldn't find any other splitter like it anywhere in my area, so I ended up getting 2 mono splitters and manually swapping the channels. They're working how I wanted them to.
Thanks anyway.
