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!

Any possiibiity you haven't pushed them in far enough so you are hearing the out of phase [L-R] component of the stereo music? Does the base of the headphone plug sit flush to the surface of the headphone jack or is there a gap where you can insert a thin object, like a sheet of paper?
[This same problem can occur even if the phones are plugged in all the way, but there is a bad solder connection internally. Wiggling the jack during use can sometimes cure it for a moment.]
