You can also use this to play audio through two pairs of headphones at once, or any other combination of audio devices. Just follow the steps below, paying particular attention to the device you choose in step 6:
This might be a good time to clean your headphone jack thoroughly, especially if you haven't in a while. A headphone jack gets clogged with grime and dirt easily, which creates more than just strange crackling sounds; it may also be why your headphones are not working.
Without a proper and updated sound driver installed, your headphones might not emit any sound. It's because they are responsible for converting all electronic signals into sounds, and an outdated driver won't support your headphones. If that's the case, it's time to update your sound drivers on Windows.
(Windows 7 home edition 64 bit)I recently downloaded a new audio driver (it was the correct one), and after updating, there is a new option to individually adjust the volume for my computer speakers and my headphones. I thought this was cool but it turns out it's made my experience with the computer a damn misery. I use jack-in headphones to listen to music/watch videos, however after the driver install the headphones have become erratic at best. Certain things play through the headphones while others play through my speakers on the computer. iTunes and Google Chrome switch between the two between opening and closing the program, and sometimes won't play through either. The only way I can get certain programs to play through my headphones is by disabling my computer speakers in playback devices > disable, but then certain programs wont work at all because it says there's a playback issue (Foobar, iTunes, Skype) so, after two days of messing with this thing, I've come to ask for help.
The TV cannot output sound both from TV speakers and headphones at the same time. However, it is possible by connecting the device, such as a transmitter, to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT terminal of the TV and outputting the sound via the device.Below are devices that can output sound to headphones using the DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT terminal on the TV.
Awesome. Sound quality drops off, but hey, i have a visual spectrum led box and needed this setup to listen via headphones and to see the display. This worked perfect. Again the sound degrades for some reason, but this trick works.
So I had an issue with my audio for the past 5 days where when I connected my headphones, it wouldn't detect at all(plays through speakers but no headphone audio, not even static), in the audio drivers in Driver Manager it said High Definition Audio Device (no other audio name). So i browsed hp drivers and I had to solve it by installing the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC, the audio driver that was intended for this device.
Now it detects my headphones but it plays in both my speakers and headphones simultaneously, I tried updating by selecting browse and choosing 'High Definition Audio Device" but then the first problem appears (as stated above). in my sound options in the playback section it has 2 devices: Speakers/HP and Communication Headphones ; the communication headphones doesnt work even when set to default only the Speakers/HP works when tested. in the recording devices they have 3 devices: Headset Mic (doesnt work when tested), Internal Mic. Array (works) and Stereo Mix (it says its unavailable.).
When I unplug my headphones while using UE4, all sounds on the program cease to play until i plug my headphones back in and restart UE4. All other sounds like Netflix come through my speakers just fine. Any clue how to fix this? Thanks.
Please go to the Settings --> Home --> sound settings --> Advanced Sound options --> App volume and device prefrences. Under those settings set Spotify to use default, my settings were set to inbuilt speaker and rest of the apps were on default. Once I change spotify to default the sound started playing in my bluetooth headphones.
The Torpedo Captor X and Captor allows you to play your tube amp silently. The Captor X has a headphones output, while the Captor needs to be plugged to a mixing desk or an audio interface to be played through headphones.
If you have no sound when you disconnect the cabinet from the Captor or Captor X in your headphones, this means the speaker cables coming in and out of the Torpedo unit are not connected to the right input and output. This is a very common mistake when using combo amps as the internal speaker has its own jack cable. Here is how to solve the issue (illustrated with the back of a Marshall JVM410 combo):
For users that are not able to get audio to play through headphones, then solving this will be a bit different. In this case, the goal is to see if something is wrong with the headphones or the connection between your iPad and headphones.
im having trouble getting premiere to play any kind of audio through a pair of regular earphones plugged into the earphone jack on the computer. every other program will play sound through the earphones which makes me think its not the computer or the earphones but a setting problem on premiere. is there something i need to change so that i can get it playing through some ear buds?
I switched from my editing laptop to my editing desktop after figuring out how to record live to my timeline with a voice over through my mic. Plugged in my headphones and everything on my computer (all sounds) is playing through my headphones just fine except, you guessed it, Premiere Pro. Honest to God I spend more time on workarounds and fixes for problems with this POS program. Not a day goes by when I don't have one issue or another. They need to streamline this bloated piece of crap.
If you're not getting any sound in Sibelius, check you have chosen the right interface for where your speakers and headphones are plugged in. If you're finding the Latency value is 0, this means the audio driver isn't functioning so you'll have to reinstall the drivers for the sound card or audio interface. Here are some common websites you can visit to download the latest drivers:
Your computer's multimedia experience loses a dimension when distortion overtakes your sound and makes audio content unbearable to listen to. When noise affects all of your computer's audio output, you have to review each of the elements through which your sound passes in order to pinpoint and address the offending sector.
Misaligned audio contacts can introduce distortion and feedback into speakers and headphones. Make certain your speaker jack is securely inserted into your computer's "Speaker/Headphone" port. If the distortion persists, try switching out your headphones or speakers to determine whether or not they are the cause of the sound distortion. Shorts from worn cables can produce static and feedback in your speakers. Excessive power can cause the delicate vibrating diaphragm in your speakers to blow out.
A microphone actively receiving input can cause a feedback loop when it picks up on sounds played from your speakers and your computer sends the microphone's input back out through your speakers. You'll need to create more distance between the microphone and speakers, turn down the speakers, decrease the microphone's sensitivity or disconnect the microphone. Right-click on the "Speakers" icon in your task bar, and then select the "Recording Devices" option from its context menu. Click on your recording device in the Sound menu and then click on its "Properties" button. Use the slider under the "Levels" tab to adjust your microphone's volume or check the option to disable its boost. Use the "Enhancement" tab's "Enable Noise Suppression" or "Enable Acoustic Echo Cancellation" option to alleviate the feedback.
There are various reasons your computer might be unable to play sound via your headphones. One of them is an outdated or broken driver. You can fix this using a dedicated tool to update or reinstall the drivers.
One important bodily difference between headphones and speakers is their visceral impact. Speakers enable sound to be perceived as vibrations in the body, and not only in the ear canal. Such physical sensations are crucial to the perception of low frequencies (McMullin, 2017). Low frequencies, in turn, have a strong impact on the human vestibular system (Todd et al., 2008), which is associated with the sensation of body movement (Todd and Lee, 2015). Furthermore, headphones are typically designed in such way that they block the ear canal or cover the ear lobe, which effectively dampens environmental sounds. This can impair user safety, such as when using headphones in traffic, and can potentially affect postural control. The presence of a continuous auditory input is an important factor in maintaining balance (Gandemer et al., 2016). It has been shown that both soundproof environments and wearing ear defenders significantly increase postural sway in healthy subjects (Kanegaonkar et al., 2012). Similar effects might result from covering the ears with headphones; however, to our knowledge, this has not been systematically investigated. At the same time, there is an indication that noise-canceling headphones, which have an active signal processing unit programmed to cancel sounds from the environment, can disrupt balance. A search of Internet reviews and forums shows that users frequently report experiencing headaches, disorientation, nausea, and dizziness when using such headphones. These are only anecdotal evidence, but there is at least one scientific report of a medical case in which noise-canceling headphones had negative consequences on the vestibular system (Dan-Goor and Samra, 2012).
In a mixed-methods study, Kallinen and Ravaja (2007) compared the experience of listening to business news through headphones and speakers. Here, different types of physiological measures were collected: facial electromyography (EMG), pulse transit time (PTT), respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA), and electrodermal activity (EDA). They found that listening to news using headphones elicited more positive reactions (EMG activity of zygomaticus major) and higher attention (shorter PTT) compared with the use of speakers. Headphones listening was also preferred by most of the participants. However, while listening to speakers, participants who scored high on the sociability and activity personality scales showed increased attention (lower RSA), whereas impulsive, sensation-seeking participants showed higher physiological arousal (increased EDA). This study showed not only crucial differences in reception of speech from headphones and from speakers, but also that these differences can vary between people depending on their personality traits. Some years later, Lieberman et al. (2016) conducted a similar study, comparing the effects of headphones vs. speakers on how participants received emotional stories (personal confessions and requests for help). The authors found that listening to such stories through headphones increased the participants' feeling of the narrator's presence, their subjective immersion in the story, and their positive attitude toward the narrator, compared to when they listened to the same stories from speakers. Headphones listening also increased the participants' willingness to donate money. The authors conclude that listening to speech on headphones reduces felt social distance. 2b1af7f3a8
