  1. I was playing one game in which the audio was working as expected. I quit that game, loaded another and suddenly there is an audio issue. Some sounds come through just fine Other sounds were extremely quiet. I didn't know there was sound until I turned my headset up all the way.

    Windows sounds would be one of the sounds that is extremely low. I was using Gigabyte's (MB mfg) audio control system that has a 3D Audio Demo that allows you to place a sound in various spots around the headphones. The 3D area behind the head exuding in a very slim triangle shape had the extremely low sound. The other locations were fine. Below are images to more accurately describe the situation.

    Within the black lines on the grid are areas with no sound (at least not audible) and the black circle is simply for more easily locating the balance I was using.

    When I throw the balance to either the left or the right, I can hear in both earphones on my headset.
