Adjusting bass/treble and other properties on Win. 7

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I recently got a pair of Tritton headphones which are supposed to be higher quality then my current turtle Beaches, but after comparing them my turtle beaches sound WAY better. I think might be because that I turned the bass boost all the way up when I was using my TB, and now since I changed headphones it sounds like crap. Problem is I cant find where to adjust bass, etc. now. Help much appreciated.

if you are running a Realtek sound (on-board) (no sound card in your sig rig)

if yes then go to the control panel there you can find an icon called Realtek HD or somthing like this
enter that and then you can manage all audio settings , and there you can find the BASS and the Treble and do what ever you like

Did you adjust something called "Bass Boost", or did you just increase something called "Bass"?

If all you did was increase "Bass", then do this:
  1. Click the speaker icon in the Notification Area
  2. Click the bigger speaker icon on the little volume adjuster that comes up
  3. Select the "Tone" tab
  4. Adjust as desired

If this isn't what you were looking for, then it might be in the control panel for your onboard audio.

Makes no sense?

  1. Click the speaker icon next to the clock. This is the Notification Area.
  2. When the volume adjuster appears (it's a white vertical rectangle with a vertical slider adjuster thing), click the square speaker icon that's at the top of this volume adjuster. So, just click the speaker icon next to the clock and then read this step.
  3. What you get is a control panel window named "Speakers Properties". There are a few tabs at the top of it, and one of them should be named "Tone".
  4. When you find the tab named "Tone", click it.
  5. What you'll see are two adjustments: bass and treble. Adjust as you see fit.

Then maybe you still have to install the driver for your onboard audio to have more adjustment options like this one.

Or if you have an actual sound card, then the sound card's driver.

Yeah .
You are running the ALC892 on you MoBo so as said above you have to install the drivers then follow the steps i posted earlier

Drivers can be found in the MoBo's disc , or you can download them (ALC892 Drivers)
