OK. Let's see how this might help some of you to understand what I've done.

First at this point I am using VIA 10600a drivers. This is important. I have them from here (http://nbtsd.asustreiber.de/Audio/VIA/V6.0.01.10600_Win7_Win8_logo_v10600a.zip).


Second, the player migh play an important part so I'll put it as well. I am an old user of KMPlayer and after the team dropped the suport on it to develop PotPlayer, I have that. You can get PotPlayer from here (http://www.dvbsupport.net/download/files/PotPlayer1.5.33948-x64.EXE). Do not download the DirectX or whatever it might complain about.

PotPlayer will ask you for a speaker setting. You can choose whatever you want, it can be changed later.

http://s11.postimage.org/cwxymuo4j/s01.jpg

http://s11.postimage.org/5v010nkir/s02.jpg

There is also a LFE setting that will give you a bit more low freq.

If other settings are checked in this section, make them to be like mine or test your own to suit your needs.

I find PotPlayer to be a very nice program for music and movies. It has internal codecs, uses full GPU power when needed, is low on system resources, has a ton of options, it's very stable. The bad part with the x64 version is that it will minize to tray everytime.

The VIA Deck settings:

Volume control - I set Bass Filter to 50.

http://s12.postimage.org/bngmy45gt/s03.jpg

Speaker setting

http://s8.postimage.org/yxf86f79x/s04.jpg

Default format - programs might use different settings, so I didn't change a thing here.

http://s10.postimage.org/et84qu2yx/s05.jpg

Sound Equalizer - the part you all want.

http://s7.postimage.org/hpie5q8p7/s06.jpg

Here are the values for them:

60 = +5 - there is hardly any improvement on low freq. with this any higher.
170 = +15 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this.
310 = +5 - higher value will not help sound quality much.
600 = 0
1k = -10 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this, for a Sub a range 'till 1k is quite a lot.
3k = 0
6k = +10
12k = + 15 - Above 12k sound quality on speakers will be poor.
14k = 0
16k = 0

If you have questions, please ask.

I did not change anything in Windows.

Nice one c_man. I just tried you settings and i can confirm that it does sound much better than stock sound without the equalizer. Although i am using 10500b drivers but ill update it to latest ones later..

Any tips on getting a little bit more of a bassy sound cz i listen music wit sum beats you know so the bass helps lol :)

Thanks anyway sounds alot better

This is the best system can offer right now. My player setting gives a bit more bass.

You can try to raise 60 and mainly 310 more, but I've done lot's of testing with all kinds of music, this sounds best for me as an overall EQ preset.

I even went online to test how it would work on youtube since most of you listen to music from it.

This is what I listen too so I have tried to cover as much as possible.

It's a nice tune for headphones as well.

I am a bit of an audiophile so for me EQ is the last option.

Here there is no other way to make this sound better.

To be honest, I did it as I've seen so many people asking for good settings and I've said maybe I can help. I've tested the problem and this was the best middle ground from my point of view. I know the sound is terrible out of the box. Maybe not everyone is as demanding as me, but I call it terrible.

Don't worry about volume, I've tried to keep a good balance.

You are indeed the man with the plan.. I put up 60 and 310 by a lil bit and now it sound MUCH better ! Like perfect, ill be honest i cant really complain about the speakers anymore :)

Nice work man, my only problem is when i use the loudness equalization, my speaker volume drops by 50% and with it turned off it's a lot louder.
Also I have downloaded the new drivers you posted.

You don't need loudness equalization for this.

Is this just for regular speakers, of any kind? Or can this also work on the laptops speakers, or your headphones. My headphonse BOSE AE2, I adjusted my sound settings to 100 BASS and like 60 Volume. Please reply c_man, I love my sound.

Techinstein
08-13-2012, 04:17 PM
Ok nevermind I figured out it does work on my headsets, and its monobass. I right clicked my sound thing in windows start typed sound right click properties levels. Monobass and volume. But I forgot how to get to the sound panel you have in the image that comes with our computers. Could you tell me please?

c_man
08-13-2012, 05:00 PM
Those settings are done with VIA HD Audio Deck.

I'm not sure you can access them in Windows without it. But, if you do not want to use the VIA app, look for the same settings in Speakers Properties (the place where you have the Monobass), Enhancements tab, More settings button and you will have Equalizer. But since it has no values, I used VIA's app. So it's up to you.

My settings were for laptop's speakers and headphones (but here I have used my own - we all have the same speakers, but not the same headphones and this means that it might not be best for every set).

This is great, improves sound even on my extermal speakers.

Techinstein
08-15-2012, 12:38 AM
Ok nevermind I finally found out how to do it. By searching around the start in windows. Thanks c-man it improves tremendously. But one thing I also did was go to sound and put mono bass to 100. If you come up with better sound equalizers please tell, us.

c_man
08-15-2012, 07:37 AM
This was the best all-around setting I could make. There are particular tweaks, I'm sure of it, but this is for you to try.

Hi, I wanted to know more about the output channels the G55/G75 support.

I saw that you settings were set to 2.1, is that the maximum the laptop supports?

I'm considering getting 2.1 or 5.1 channel surround sound headphones.

Your info. would be highly appreciated.

c_man
09-23-2012, 06:31 AM
The laptop itself has 3 speakers, but I have no idea if you can use 2.1 external system. 5.1 is a no go. Try getting some USB sound card. Better performance. They are small, you won't even feel them.

Vicerox
09-23-2012, 06:46 AM
I'm considering getting 1 of the following:

2.1
http://www.logitech.com/en-us/webcam-communications/internet-headsets-phones/8391

5.1
http://www.logitech.com/en-us/gaming/headsets/wireless-headset-f540

The external soundcard will only add to the cost.

I still use these http://nbtsd.asustreiber.de/Audio/VIA/V6.0.01.10600_Win7_Win8_logo_v10600a.zip and I never had a problem with them. All the "latest" drivers had problems or fixed nothing.

Hi, i'd like to ask.

Why is my G75 maximum speaker volume is so quiet? Quiet is relative, but as comparison my G73JW 30% volume is already louder than my G75 at 100%.

I've tried asus via driver and newer via driver but the volume is just the same.

Why is this? Is it possible that i have some kind of hardware defect, or it is just a matter of driver/ settings?

Thx.

Glacial
11-14-2012, 05:21 AM
Thank you. So it is indeed so because newer via driver has low volume. I was afraid that I have somekind of SC/ speaker defect.

c_man
11-15-2012, 03:59 PM
Well, it's not all about being loud. There are more things to consider. For example 10500 is a real bad driver if you use anything else besides the laptop's speakers. And even then, it has some problems compared to 10600 and I would never use it. Loud is the last thing you want from a speaker, any speaker.

Thank you. So it is indeed so because newer via driver has low volume. I was afraid that I have somekind of SC/ speaker defect.

Yeah bro, the difference between the 10500B Drivers and the 10600 or later Drivers is very big! With the 10600 or later I can barely hear the speakers when listening to Music or watching a Movie. With the 10500B drivers, the sound is very loud and crisp with lovely bass! Anyone saying that you don't need loudness in speakers is pure insane! Off-course you need them to be loud! You need to enjoy your speakers so obviously you want loud and crisp sound

c_man
11-25-2012, 03:44 PM
Hm, you guys make me find some kind of measure device to test 10500 vs 10600 on my laptop as far as loudness goes.

Thing is these speakers when go loud, they just screm, they do not play music. You can use whatever driver you want. It's the system itself that is the problem and this is why they cannot fix it, even with this huge amount of sound drivers (on my other laptops I used one sound driver and that was it). I don't have a high-end audio system, but still it's a 10k system and I know a thing or two about sound, from loundness to quality. In fact a good system should not be loud at all, should not scream, should not make your ears hurt. The sound dynamic is something different, completly. Of course most people just turn the volume as high as possible. I'm fine with that, I respect that, but they should respect my hearing as well.

Even so, 10500 is somewhat OK is you use only laptop speakers. If you use a mix of speaker, headphone, hdmi, then it's a lot worse than 10600. Not sound worse, but it's a pain to use. Also, the bass itself is just a software trick that one can get with any program if needed. I've said this in the OP.

every time i plugin speakers or headphones, and i think randomly as well, my VIA HD AUDIO DECK takes itself off of default device and i wont have sound. So ill have to click default device several times a day to get the sound on again which is kind of annoying. how can i get it to stay on "default" device?

im on a g75vw

c_man
12-01-2012, 10:06 PM
I have no idea about the Default device. All I can say is that with a fresh install and 10600 I never had any problems.

This latest driver might help W8, but for sound improvement there is no hope. This is the hardware design of the system, it cannot do any better. And these settings I've made are just a way to hide the problem a little. They cannot make things much better, but at least sound is a bit better. Also I've seen that not all the G75 sound the same, some have weird distorsions, I have no idea what's the problem since the software setup was 100% the same.

Hi,
my problem is that with my headphones connected every time i open a program or just youtube the subwoofer plays loud. I have to disconnect and reconnect de headphones to stop it. Do you have this problem? There is a profile for headphones to set 2.0 not 2.1?

c_man
12-05-2012, 06:22 PM
This should not happen anymore with a proper 10600+ driver install. If it still does, there must be some leftovers from previous drivers.

You can disable 2.1 in VIA HD Deck for as a simple solution.

anybody have problem with the equalizer keeps changing itself to default setting?

using 10900 driver...my problem is...when I set custom equalizer and save it...each time I play mp3 or any video...it will auto use the default preset...not the one I customize...i need to re-select the custom one each time I play a song...u guys know causes the problem??

EDIT : Fixed, Using 10900 driver in Win 7 is really a bad idea...downgrade 10600 problem solved.

i tried to tick listen and it still there ( skype closed ) so the noise is not from skype.
I lowered the mic boost down to 0 and the noise decreased lil bit but it still there..

i`m using the 10600 driver.

any help guys?

for me it looks like the best settings, anyway I dont know what had happend to my Windows 8 install, as its been redone in Best Buy to Portuguese(Brazil) version, I'm actually with 10.600, maybe it has put over an older, or not, I may take all off and reinstall anytime, but for now this settings is the best, as G75VW keeps sounding stronger at the left for me, design problem, who will put an speaker that large on the left ? I miss my Acer 6920 with tuba subwoofer on the back, and the DV7-4190US HP (Hot Parts) with hidden beats áudio, now G75VW takes too much attention on my left !
thanks c_man !

Hey there. I stumbled on the sound settings for HDMI audio output through the Nvidia Control Panel on my G76. Turns out there is a tab for digital audio output, to enable it for Windows sound. I clicked on that, went to the Windows Sound Settings (Windows 7) and there was the HDMI audio option. I set that to dafault and "let there be sound!" Then I was able to change the sound settings from stereo to 7.1 surround. Not only did my Pioneer recognize it on the digital display, but now it sounds AWESOME!!!

Tomislav
01-22-2013, 01:26 PM
@Vicerox you'll need an external sound card for 5.1 or 7.1 sound. Though a bunch of 5.1/7.1 headsets come with their own solutions G55/G75 itself doesn't have that. And a word of advice if you are buying headphones for music you don't need 5.1 sound. If you are looking for a headset to use it in games then you might consider it.

it happends to me on W8 10.600, no matter if I save new profiles, name them, it goes back to deault and saved profiles disappear, actually it is in default but settings seens to keep as c_man style, sincerely i'm disappointed with the sound of this notebook, its powerfull, but too much for the left for my taste.

These are good settings.

I came here looking for a fix to my subwoofer (it wasnt playing at all) and found through your screenshots that i had my LFE volume on the lowest setting (zero). And that is why it wasnt making any sound, duh.

That, along with the EQ suggestions really improved the sound overall. It seems higher now? Good.

Hi!

Pretty impressive post there!
I have a question for you if you don't mind.
I have a G46 and my friends have been telling me I sound terrible when we are in a Skype call.
I listened to myself using the Skype testing service and well, it just sound like I'm sitting in a cardboard box or something.
I am (obviously) using the inbuilt mic.
I already changed the "mic boost" from 30db to 0, it helped a little but it still sounds pretty meh :/

I could post a sample sound if that's necessary. If you cant help then no problem and I'll probably just make a new thread for it.

c_man
02-28-2013, 05:10 PM
I never used skype, I have no idea about how it works. But for what is worth, I am using a pair of headphones and they are rather good (and cheap). Easy fix, get a pair. I have not seen sound so bad on other series from anyone, like these G laptops offer us. It's so beyond me why Asus made them like this.

pixeldust
03-26-2013, 04:33 PM
OK. Let's see how this might help some of you to understand what I've done.

First at this point I am using VIA 10600a drivers. This is important. I have them from here (http://nbtsd.asustreiber.de/Audio/VIA/V6.0.01.10600_Win7_Win8_logo_v10600a.zip).


Second, the player migh play an important part so I'll put it as well. I am an old user of KMPlayer and after the team dropped the suport on it to develop PotPlayer, I have that. You can get PotPlayer from here (http://www.dvbsupport.net/download/files/PotPlayer1.5.33948-x64.EXE). Do not download the DirectX or whatever it might complain about.

PotPlayer will ask you for a speaker setting. You can choose whatever you want, it can be changed later.

http://s11.postimage.org/cwxymuo4j/s01.jpg

http://s11.postimage.org/5v010nkir/s02.jpg

There is also a LFE setting that will give you a bit more low freq.

If other settings are checked in this section, make them to be like mine or test your own to suit your needs.

I find PotPlayer to be a very nice program for music and movies. It has internal codecs, uses full GPU power when needed, is low on system resources, has a ton of options, it's very stable. The bad part with the x64 version is that it will minize to tray everytime.

The VIA Deck settings:

Volume control - I set Bass Filter to 50.

http://s12.postimage.org/bngmy45gt/s03.jpg

Speaker setting

http://s8.postimage.org/yxf86f79x/s04.jpg

Default format - programs might use different settings, so I didn't change a thing here.

http://s10.postimage.org/et84qu2yx/s05.jpg

Sound Equalizer - the part you all want.

http://s7.postimage.org/hpie5q8p7/s06.jpg

Here are the values for them:

60 = +5 - there is hardly any improvement on low freq. with this any higher.
170 = +15 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this.
310 = +5 - higher value will not help sound quality much.
600 = 0
1k = -10 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this, for a Sub a range 'till 1k is quite a lot.
3k = 0
6k = +10
12k = + 15 - Above 12k sound quality on speakers will be poor.
14k = 0
16k = 0

If you have questions, please ask.

I did not change anything in Windows.


Is the stock G55VW sound system / speakers the same as the G75 machine? :confused:

Will these settings also work for the G55? :confused:

DO i uninstall this and then install this VIA program and driver?
on an Aussie g75vx

adamsyes
05-03-2013, 03:32 AM
Sadly, you can't. The g75vx comes with a totally different sound card . it's realtek instead of VIA.

Realtek actually produces better sound. and much louder. although it still has the issue with the subwoofer. this is going to be asus who needs to patch this on a BIOS update.

05-12-2013, 02:07 PM
I had the G75VW for a while, got rid of it for a G75VX.....

Here are some observations....

I thought the bass quality and quantity of the G75VW with the VIA chip was much better.

As a matter of fact, when using the equalizer of the G75VX with the Realtek HD audio drivers.....moving any of the sliders below 1K did absolutely nothing to the sound. I could move the 31, 62, 125, 250 and 500 all the up or all the way down and it did not change the sound one bit.

With the G75VW and the VIA chip, moving all these frequencies around actually had an effect on the sound (except the lowest bass slider)

The only way I can think is to adjust it through the HD Audio Deck... at least that's how I do it on my VW. Theres a slider for 'Bass Filter' and it seems to work best when it's lowered to about 40% of whatever the speakers are set to.

Using 6.0.10.1900 driver, and working fine on my side.
Actually I'm using headset mostly rather than internal speakers (no equalizer needed), but if I have to use speakers - now the sound is better :cool:
c_man, thanx for this useful post!

I'm not sure I understand all the specifics outlined here, but I'm certainly researching what to do about the sound on my new ASUS G75VX-TS72. It sucks. Realtek. I can't believe that my old Dell XPS blows this thing away as far as sound quality. I guess it wouldn't help to get an awesome USB Sound card if the inner workings aren't any good to start with?
Thanks

I onow the g75 does not have the best sound quality so I was thinking would the sound quality be better if I uninstall the program that comes with the g75 and use micrsofts generic driver and use winamp to equalize the sound would it give me much better sound than the vio driver?

C_Man, you really are THE_Man! I'm a bit of an audiophile as well, so most all these settings were second nature. My problem was after installing Windows 8 Pro my drivers wouldn't reload, thus I couldn't access the VIA Deck. I downloaded what I thought was the most current driver, but turns out it was version 6. Someone lied to me! But, fortunately you provided me with the answer I needed. Even over a year later your assistance is still appreciated!

Probably a stupid question that's already been asked somewhere but do the equalizer settings keep after you've closed VIA HD Audio Deck, do you have to open it at all when you boot or does the equalizer work without having to run the program every time you boot up?

Ignore this post
