Audio echo in Windows 10 – solved
One day I opened Youtube, clicked on one video that I can‘t remember now and the flick started playing with echo. I mean, the sound was with echo on Windows 10 platform. At first my thought was – somebody messed up the sound configuration while making the video. So I listened to it (the sound was somewhat similar to coming out of a cave) and din‘t bother much. Next time I tried to listed – the same thing happened. Youtube problem? No way, all the digital audio whether video or simple MP3 were with echo.
To cut things short, after Windows 10 update my Realtek audio somehow „decided“ that my current sound environment was no longer suitable for me and changed it to „arena“ effects. That was the cause of the cave/ arena sound. I also browsed some forums and there were also other causes for this weird cave sound coming from headphones. Some people reported that after updating their audio drivers they got rid of the echo. Well, I will bring up what worked for me.
To change that annoying echo sound on Windows 10 (or check if it‘s enabled) follow these steps:
1. Right click on the sound icon on the right and click on open sound settings:
2. In the next window select your output device and click on device properties.
3. In newly opened Realtek (that‘s my sound card, yours could be different) digital output properties window click on Enhancements tab and choose None in the Settings field. Then click OK and Apply and this should fix it.
Mine was set to Arena, you can also notice a Cave settings. So yeah, the sound coming from a cave in Windows 10 is the real deal – it exists. 🙂
