My front panel audio has the wrong signal to left and right, so i have had to not use it for a while until i found 1 solution online and i am today going to paste it here for others.

It works 100% legit and perfect with no obvious changes or software running.

  • Download Equalizer APO from https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/
  • Configure it to attach to your output device (Usually something like: "Speakers - VIA HD Audio" or "Speakers - Realtek HD Audio"); you can change this later with the "Configurator" tool from the Equalizer APO start menu folder
  • Create a new file in C:\Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config, name it for example swapchannels.txt
  • Paste the following line into it as its only content:
    Copy: L=R R=L
  • Save it
  • Open Equalizer APO's configuration editor
  • Make sure that your device is the correct one in the dropdown menu on the top right
  • If applicable, remove all pre-configured options by clicking the red "minus" icon (or, if shown, the button with two arrows pointing downwards, then "Remove")
  • Click the green "plus" icon to add a new configuration for your output device, then navigate to the "Include configuration file" option
  • Select your swapchannels.txt file
  • Save/Apply the configuration
  • VoilĂ !
Install and configure EqualizerAPO for your output device with only one configuration file that has only

Copy: L=R R=L as its content.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for posting Recon, I had an issue connection my Turtle Beach XO7s for Xbox to my PC via a splitter where left and right channels were swapped through either front or back audio input jacks. Maybe wiring of the splitter is mapped to a different configuration of Left/Right/Mic on the output jack of the XO7s (ie picking up Right/Left/Mic). I saw someone had the same issue with a pair of high end sennheisers. Anyway, this neat little app fixed the issue in five minutes, now Left is Left and Right is Right on my headphones. I should also say that I am not very tech savvy, particularly on PC, so although there is a few steps, don't freak out, its very simple. Cheers....!
