Yoga 900 Sound Enhancement Thread

2016-01-01, 6:14 AM

Hi all

Recently, I got a Yoga 900 and I would like to share the maximum potential of it's speaker. After testing, I would say Yoga 900 is one of the ultrabook with the best possible speakers and the new Dolby software really brings it up to another level.

Furthermore, this new Dolby software is easier to use compared to the older version. The only disadvantage of the new Dolby Audio software is that it only allows 1 customized EQ (Personalize).

 

You may have to retweak the EQ or disable Dolby Audio if you connect to an external headphone or speaker, as the Personalize settings I provided may not be optimal for your external audio devices.

This time round, I provide 3 builds, you may try to adjust and see which fits your preference. You may try to ON the Surround Virtualizer for Movie and Games. You may also try to ON the Volume Leveler if you prefer the sound to be more flat and less loud.

Loudness Build:

Balanced Build:

Max Build (For Bass + Loudness)

Hope you all benefit from this Sound Enhancement Thread! Happy New Year all! :D

Hi Peter,

      I bought a Yoga900 in December. In recently, when I watch the vedio, the compter will have the sound of "zizi" and the vedio picture is not smooth. Why it have this problem?

Great feedback. In comparing the audio profile against my reference point, the 2011 MBP, I would suggest that we bring the mids back just a bit. The JBLs drive very strongly through the mids and you lose a bit of separation. But otherwise I agree that the Max profile is the most impactful. Dials to 11!!!

Hi tanggaohehe

May I know does the "zizi" sound or lagginess shows only on that particular video? Or it affects on other sound or video?

You could try to download and install the latest audio and display driver from this link.

Hi all

For those who are interested about the frequency range of the 20-Band EQ. Here it is:

(From left to right)

(47Hz, 141Hz, 234Hz, 328Hz, 469Hz, 656Hz, 844Hz, 1031Hz, 1313Hz, 1688Hz, 2250Hz, 3KHz, 3750Hz, 4688Hz, 5813Hz, 7KHz, 9KHz, 11KHz, 14KHz, 20KHz)

20 Band.PNG

 

20-Band EQ provides more refined control of frequencies compared to 10-Band EQ
(32Hz, 64Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1KHz, 2KHz, 4KHz, 8KHz, 16KHz)

10 Band.PNG

 

Photo is snipped from the older version of Dolby Home Theater v4.
