Re: MaxxAudio not working in the latest Realtek drivers (855

I suppose what you say about the bass and volume seem odd to me.  Normally, on my systems, the presets for the earbuds have a lower volume but about the same bass.  I normally save a preset to the headset and crank up the bass levels.  If the earbuds fit my ear well and seal, the bass really rocks.

I play Steam games but no sound apps.  I do not play multiplayer games, so if you do that perhaps you need that driver.

I have several wired headsets and they all seem to behave about the same.  If you wanted to bypass the Realtek sound device, you could try a Bluetooth headset.

Also, there have been comments regarding Intel Smart sound and certain versions causing the latest Win 10 build upgrade to block systems with that version.
