My Y560d has very poor sound quality

When I play music on my new Y560d, the speakers sound terrible. The bass especially is distorted; it sounds "fuzzy" even at half volume. I've had a service technician replace the left speaker, but that hasn't helped. It still sounds bad. iTunes sounds awful. Windows Media Player is somewhat better, but still bad.  (Music sounds great with headphones though)

 

I've read reviews about the Y560d and people say the sound is clean and crisp. Not mine. My laptop sounds worse than a cheap clock radio.

 

So now what?

maybe you just need to change the sound settings.

control panel > hardware & sound > realtek hd audio manager >

Re: My Y560d has very poor sound quality

Thank you Yigit!

I tried the Realtek Audio Manager, yes.

What I want to do naturally is turn up the bass settings since there seems to be no woofer?

But that makes the "bffffz bffffz" distortion sound from the speakers even worse.

There is no musical clarity if the equalizer is left at default/neutral.

Going the other way, eliminating the bass completely helps some with the distortion, but then the music sounds empty (no range).

Keeping the volume lower than halfway also helps, but there is no joy in that.

 

Looking at the audio properties in the Device Manager, it says I have Realtek driver version 6.0.1.6110 dated 5/13/2010. This seems to be a newer version than the 6.0.1.6037 dated 4/15/2010 that is offered on the downloads page.
