    Default Music playback.

    Hi all.
    W10 Toshiba P50 laptop.
    My last hearing test shows that I have Only 2% hearing in my left ear & 46% in my right ear. That suggests to me that in Stereo playback I hear almost nothing from the left side. I wondered if I could set the music output into Mono would I hear all of the stereo sound. If that is so, how do I do it. Thanks. PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Just remember ear phones are a major contributor to deafness, I would be listening to the music at as low a volume as possible, and not for very long periods.

    Its about teens, but think how much more fragile your hearing is than their's.

    I take your point abot eenagers & earbuds. In us older people it is more what old age & work noise has done this to us. We didnt have earbuds back then. To be near a teenager & hear nois from their earbuds always suprises me. Also at work back then there were no earmuffs at work.. I know of no one in my family who has my level of deafness. PJ

    ps. I think my signitue says it all. pj

    I remember cutting corrugated roofing iron with a skillsaw.
    No earmuffs, my ears used to roar.

    Do you have hearing aids PJ? With mine I can alter the volume equally across both aids, or singly. I too have much greater hearing loss in one ear, so sometimes crank that one up.
