    Does all Asus g75 have audio problem?

    I was wondering if ALL the Asus g75 have audio problems such as subwoofer playing while the headphone is still connected? I always use the headphones and I don't want the external subwoofer or speakers to play while connected to the headphone jack.

    The one I plan on getting if there isn't any audio problem is the ASUS Republic of Gamers G75VW-AS71 one.

    Is it on all of the g75 series or just on few?

    The problem is not fixed, there are some work-arounds that make it better! The issue persists with headphones also. The only way to avoid it is use a usb headset or speakers. If you like audio like me avoid this unit!!!!!

    I assumed it was a driver issue and would be resolved in a few weeks when I purchased it in August last year, but the audio still doesn't work right in Windows 8.

    Avoid the G75VW! At least buy it at a place like Best Buy that will give you 30 days to sway without a restocking fee!

    I've compared G73's audio with G75VX, G75VX's audio quality blows, sounds so off , while G73 is so much better and acceptable, G75VX's sound quality is just awful , I dont know if its driver's problem or bad quality of speakers/sub woofer ...... I am on latest driver from Asus official website already, anyone have suggestions or any ways to fix it ?

    And so far, have you experienced any problems with it even the slightest?

    There are two unrelated audio issues from my understanding of the history on this.
    1. There WAS a problem when using headphones that audio would continue to play out of the speakers - this has been resolved by a driver update
    2. There IS a problem with the sound quality as the "sub-woofer" continues to act as a centre-channel and since the "sub" sits to the left side of the computer it makes the sound very much uneven. But at the same time the "sub" drowns out the smaller speakers on the top of the laptop. This has been in existence since day 1 and so far no resolution has been found.

    So ... if you are into using headphones all of the time - no problem. If you plan on listening to music out of the speakers then you might get irritated by the quality. There have been tweaks and settings; but really they only help a little and are not a resolution.
