This doesn't always happen, but I've noticed a few times on my T440p that when I have headphones plugged in, sounds comes out of the speakers. The headphones are functional and fully plugged in, yet no sound comes out of them, and the sound comes out of the speakers. I've fixed this multiple times by unplugging the headphones and plugging them back in.
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, have you been able to fix it? The reason it is a problem for me is that it distracts those working around me.
(my problem differs from this one, where sounds comes from both the headphones and speakers)

There is an option called "Audio Director". The options are "Classic mode" and "Multi-stream mode". Is this what you're referring to? If so, which of these should be set? It is currently set to "Multi-stream mode", which I suppose is the default since I never changed it.

> Alternatively, if you want audio to only come out of the headphones and not switch dynamically, go to the Sound control panel in Windows, and set headphones as default.
This only appears to be possible when I am in mult-stream mode, in which case, headphones were already set as the default. When I switch to classic mode, there is no separate option in the Sound control panel to select headphones as a default.

> Yeah it should be in Classic mode. I've seen some cases where it defaulted to multi-stream, which isn't really the typical usage scenario.
Thanks. I'll try that out and post back here if I have any problems.
