Windows 7: sound is low when listening on my earphones

sound is low when listening on my earphones

Hi there I have noticed recently that when I use my earphones which Ii plug directly into my speakers, if I watch a movie the music is very high but voices very low and I have to turn the volume up full to even hear them. This happens on VLC and WMP but if I watch something using a web browser, it's ok.

I do not know how to rectify this as I have disabled and enabled sound drivers

I really am stumped by this.

thanks in advance

This would suggest a configuration problem with the movies. Some movies have configuration options for the audio and that is a place to start. Also, if you are using any sound enhancements that is another potential issue.
