Hello, I have recently purchased a new laptop and was a little turned off when I realized the audio quality was less than impressive (I wasn't expecting much to begin with). I thought that when I used my pair of earbuds it would sound better as I know that the quality of the bass, when I used the headphones in my other computer or mp3 player, is very good. But when I use them in my laptop I get almost no bass and overall poor sound quality. I, yesterday, purchased a pair of over ear headphone (turtlebeach Z2) and still the audio quality didn't improve whatsoever. I know from experience with other turtle beach products that they have excellent bass processing, at least better than what I am getting now. Is there anything I can do to get the full sound quality that I should be getting. I hope I don't get responses saying that its my earbuds/beaches that are the problem, because I know from experience that they both have excellent bass capabilities when used in my computer, xbox, mp3 player, etc.... I have seen a few other threads on this, but haven't really found an answer. Any help would be much appreciated!

It's entirely possible the laptop you purchased has a subpar audio processor. I'm not sure if they've gotten better at it, but for a while laptop audio was noticeably worse than that of a desktop. I know they're now marketing some laptops with Beats audio, so I guess they're at least making an effort, but I can't say anything towards the quality. Like Dynamic said, check your sound processor's settings. If it's Realtek, something must be amiss as it's a very good sounding audio processor.

After thoroughly checking through my sound settings, I have not found anything that has changed the quality of the audio. And when I need to download RMAA I cannot get onto their website (it appears to be down) so I guess I will have to wait until the site comes back online. Once I do a test with it I will post the results here. Once again I will say thank you everyone for your help, I hope I can get a solution to my problem. Nothing I have tried has worked as of yet. I will keep everyone posted.
