Windows 7: How to listen Spotify with headphones?

How to listen Spotify with headphones?

I can't listen to Spotify through headphones (or my external speakers). My win 7 laptop plays it only from through computer's own internal speakers. I've tried everything you can possibly imagine, but still the music comes out from wrong place. Skype on the other hand works with the headphones. Can anyone help me, please... I'm quite desperate

Welcome!

In Control Panel>Sound, make sure your headphones are set as the default device. Click on them and select Default Device at the bottom.

Good luck!

In Sound, try right-clicking on your speakers and select Disable. This should force the sounds to play through the headphones.

Maybe it's some kind of driver problem.. Spotify informs me: There is a problem with your sound card. Spotify can't play music. But I don't understand. Test sound works.

Yes! I fixed it! I think it is a bug in device driver. I reverted to previous driver and now it works! Thank you for you help anyway, it is nice to know that help is near.

I read on Neowin that Warner is discontinuing Spotifys' free streaming...

That's sad if that happens. But because I want to support musicians and Spotify I'm already paid for it. I just hope it won't go more expensive.
