realtek audio cards too much trebles and strange eq ,but not in wasapi event

Hi

I have found that  many realtek audio cards do sound with too much trebles or bright for my ears "for my ears" , and sometime it's very hard even too equalize them
I know there are pretty cheap but in wasapi event they do play very good "for my ears" ,and the software Eq (like foobar) sounds pretty good
I know there is Apo Equalizer and about the realtek hd panel is set to default ,and i have even changed the sample rate but it doesn't change

Are the drivers ? Are some windows 10 or 7 settings?
may I ask you some feedbacks?
Have you fixed ? Or are you just leaving as they are and use wasapi event?
thanks in advance

Have you tried "disable sound enhancements"?

If it helps, then it can be some bogus DSPs automatically added by the manufacturer's drivers.
It mentions the microphone but the same setting can exist for the outputs.

but if I disable "disable sound enhancements" , could I use apo equalizer ?

I wonder what other effects are in your list when you scroll down? I can't see in your screenshot.
Sometimes drivers come with Dolby "enhancement" enabled which sounds utterly horrible.
There is also Spatial sound tab. I would assume that would be listed as an effect too, but for some weird reason it isn't.

If you disabled all sound effects, it will also disable effects like apo equalizer.

Immidiate mode applies the changes immidiately, so you don't have to press the Apply or OK button. That's all.

AutoEq seems like a database. You need EQ software to use the settings from that database.

About AutoEQ and foobar.
I would like to know if there is an easy way to import the 31 band eq settings from AutoEQ to the "Graphic Equalizer" (foo_dsp_xgeq) component of Foobar.

Hi Mark7
my operation language is not in english ,that why i haven't added all the list ,but yes there is dolby and spatial
but if I disable all sound effects "sound enhancements" will apo equalizer work ? I haven't intalled apo eq right now
have you apo equalizer installed ? just because seems that apo won't work with the sound effects disabled
my headphones are not in the autoEQ :(
thanks
