My headset gives louder sound on the right side. And I change the balance in Windows to hear equal. But I couldn't find where I can balance my audio.

I searched for it but couldn't find.

This is the volume control: Volume Control My OS is Xubuntu


Install Pulse Audio Volume Control from the software center and run it:

You will get a screen like this:


If your balance sliders are locked together, click the lock in the upper right corner of the window and adjust the left and right balance volumes until you reach the point of satisfaction. For me that's about here:


If you then lock the lock again your adjustments will be locked in place and survive a reboot.

  • It doesn't work. Second parameter has no effect. I couldn't put the output here but link is this: output of amixer – maydin Oct 30 '16 at 14:33
  • Your left and right channels appear to be locked in a linked status. Editing answer. – Elder Geek Oct 30 '16 at 16:09
  • Unfortunately there is no for left and right in Pulse Audio. I am using Xubuntu 15.10 and this is my Pulse Audio: link – maydin Nov 3 '16 at 14:34
  • @maydin Actually you are using a version that is no longer supported. See:wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases and askubuntu.com/questions/91815/… – Elder Geek Nov 3 '16 at 14:44
