T560 Sound Enhancement Threads

2016-09-24, 14:36 PM

Hi all

Recently, I got a T560 and I would like to share how well could the speaker performs. After testing and tweaking, I would say that the loudness is similar to Yoga 900, except Yoga 900 have louder mid (vocal) and T560 / P50s have louder high (clarity, background sound)


The tweaks is also optimal for P50s as it shares the same sound card and speakers as T560. The tweaks would not be optimal for other laptops, external audio device due to variation of frequency response.


To tweak the sound:
1. Go to Start > All Apps (All Programs) > Dolby > Dolby Audio


2. Click Personalize


3. There are two types of preset provided for the internal speaker, Loudness and Balanced. You may try out both to see what you prefer, and adjust the EQ accordingly to the photos below. Maximum preset is not recommended on the T560 / P50s as it's sound card would not supply enough power to drive the speakers and sound quality will decrease.


Loudness: Less bass, maximize midrange and treble sound loudness 


Balanced: Flat response with increased overall sound loudness
