The audio for my laptop is too loud as per the thread title. I have to keep my master volume sub-15, though I rarely pass 10, to hear things without blowing my ears out. Even at 0 I can still faintly hear things.

I use a Logitech G930 headset, however the volume control on the companion software controls the master volume of windows as well. I've also used ear buds to see if it was the program interfering with the audio control, but the issue persists. The sound card is a VIA HD Audiodeck.

Uh, what's the problem?

As said, just turn down the Volume. You said it is FAINT at zero, and you rarely pass ten so why aren't you just staying in that range?

Even with this range, audio is still loud compared to a 100-0 range. I guess it's more of a quality of life problem as it is bearable with the current range, though it'd be nicer to have a wider range of volumes to play with. As I said, I rarely pass 10 so there isn't much customization for volume level with programs. I'm sure there has to be a solution to this.

Read the sound card manual.

Does the volume range work fine with your laptop speakers?

If not, try removing the companion software. Do the laptop speakers and non-USB headphones work properly?

Are there other settings in the Companion software that affect volume range?

Did you look for this issue in the FORUM for your headphones?
