    Thumbs up GL552VW-dh74 Extremely poor sound volume and quality

    I recently bought a new GL552VW-dh74 (the metallic finish one) and while the laptop works fine for the most part, the sound quality and the sound volume of the inbuilt speakers is just plain horrible. My 8 year old nokia phone has louder speakers than this. The inbuilt conexant audio drivers give no loudness or quality to the speakers. This is by far the worst speakers I have ever seen in an electronic device.


    Things I have tried :

    1) Uninstalling the conexant audio drivers and using the windows High Definition Audio device drivers. ( Made little to no difference)

    2) Uninstalled the conexant drivers and downloaded the latest ones on the asus website from here : https://www.asus.com/us/ROG-Republic...Desk_Download/
    Again made no difference.

    3) The audiowizard inbuilt 'technology' doesnt do anything at all to increase the speaker volume

    4) My laptop did not come preinstalled with Maxxaudio (I dont know if it was supposed to or not).



    Any tips on how to increase the sound volume will be appreciated.

    I was about to ask the same thing. I received my GL552VW-DM201T yesterday, and immediately, I was displeased with the very low
    sound volume (and a couple of other things which I won't mention here for the sake of focusing on the volume problem only). My previous
    device was again an Asus, N550JV multimedia laptop which had 4 speakers and an external subwoofer producing an EXTREMELY rich and
    good sound for a laptop, and to be honest I never expected this GL552VW laptop match the sound quality of N550JV. However, I never
    expected it to be this bad!!! The first thing which bugs me the most is the sound volume. It's too low. The amaount of volume that I got from
    N550JV at around 40% is only matched bt GL552VW's 100% set volume. And to be honest, I expected it to be a tad richer. Is this the same
    on all GL552VW models, meaning this model's sound capabilities is badly designed on purpose, or our specific devices are problematic?

    Same story

    I've the same model (GL55VW-CN430T) purchased in India & I too am disappointed. I guess, this is where they cut corners to bring down the cost, what with the SSD, 7200 PM HDD, & i7, we got with the model. However, ASUS compensated it well enough by giving away a Bluetooth speaker as free with the laptop.
