I'd like to switch the 2 channels so the left channel comes from the right speaker, and the right channel from the left. Short of cutting the cord up and rewiring it, how do I do this?

If you have positional audio software you can move the placement of your speakers in the software.

But I would think your best bet is to switch the inputs.

there is no native or freeware solution.. found this http://www.sobolsoft.com/swapspeaker/

i take it you will not swap the speakers or flip your headphones, why not?

also you can get 2 3.5mm to RCA adapters to flip the RCA channels

The software won't let me change placement.

Forgot to mention, it's headphones. There's no way to switch the inputs.

My headphones rotate like this (↓) but they stop when they're parallel with each other.

It's super uncomfortable to use them if I wear earrings, so I usually end up putting them on backwards so they aren't crushing my ears.

LOL, awesome idea. I'll do that if I cannot find a software fix.

I know, this is an old post, but since it pops up as the first result in Google when searching for "Windows Swap Audio Channels", I thought it would be good to post a working, free solution here:
  • Download Equalizer APO from https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/
  • Configure it to attach to your output device (Usually something like: "Speakers - VIA HD Audio" or "Speakers - Realtek HD Audio"); you can change this later with the "Configurator" tool from the Equalizer APO start menu folder
  • Create a new file in C:\Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config, name it for example swapchannels.txt
  • Paste the following line into it as its only content:
    Copy: L=R R=L
  • Save it
  • Open Equalizer APO's configuration editor
  • Make sure that your device is the correct one in the dropdown menu on the top right
  • If applicable, remove all pre-configured options by clicking the red "minus" icon (or, if shown, the button with two arrows pointing downwards, then "Remove")
  • Click the green "plus" icon to add a new configuration for your output device, then navigate to the "Include configuration file" option
  • Select your swapchannels.txt file
  • Save/Apply the configuration
  • Voilà!

tl;dr:
Install and configure EqualizerAPO for your output device with only one configuration file that has only
Code:
Copy: L=R R=L
as its content.


Hope this helps!
