How To Adjust Audio Balance In Windows 7


429 Okay so how can you change the balance of the speaker volume in Windows 7 ?

Recently I had this problem with my earphone it doesn’t produce a balanced output sound anymore. I know that it’s a hardware problem, but fortunately you can adjust this in the software.

Before it use to be pretty simple to change the balance in Windows. But unfortunately in Windows 7 it becomes a little bit hard to find the option.

Here is how you can change the audio balance in Windows 7


Go to Sound > Properties


Under “Levels” tab click “Balance”

Now you can adjust the volume for both left and right speaker, adjust them accordingly. Also Windows 7 is smart enough that which audio device this has been adjusted on. If you add a new audio output it will by default change to balanced each.

  2. On Windows 10, this functions exactly the same, except, on my computer, it locks the “1” and “2” together so when I slide one, the other slides with it, and I can’t make them separate values
