Windows 7: cause for some (not all) sounds coming through only one headphone ?

cause for some (not all) sounds coming through only one headphone ?

Hi everyone

I recently purchased some Bose QC25 headphones and for some reason they seem to only play some audio through the left headphone e.g. watching a video and voices will come through clear on both but when there is music playing during the show it may only/predominantly come through just the left headphone.

This issue doesn't occur with some earphones I have.

Any ideas as to why this is would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

What happens if you play a music file, either a wav or MP3 with Windows Media Player?
