Edit Article

  • 1 Editor

Listening to music while at your desktop is a good way to pass the time and explore new genres. You may sit closer to one speaker than the other, have a hearing deficiency in one ear or have a wall on one side reflecting more sound towards you. In any case, you can compensate per audio device for the imbalance on a Windows computer without altering other settings.


  1. 1
    Click the Start button, and select "Control Panel."
  2. 2
    Click the "Hardware and Sound" option. Click the "Sound" option in the window that appears.
  3. 3
    Click "Properties," then the "Levels" tab. Each installed audio device has separate volume control and a "Balance" button. Click on this.
  4. 4
    Click on the slider for the device you wish to adjust. Hold down on the mouse key as you move the slider left and right.


  • Remember that if you lower the volume completely from the system tray, balance settings for that device reset to the defaults.
