A couple months back I broke my front panel audio plugs( only the left side would work) so instead I decided to get extension cables to connect my headphones to the back. It was working for a few weeks, however, the extension cable broke and I just ordered and receive another one. When plugging in the extension cable and the headphones into the extension cable, the surround sound does not properly work and the sound would play from both sides despite the sound only coming from one side in game. What do I do?
3.5mm plug will have a number of metal bands .... check to see if they match your sound controller socket / or check to see if it matches your old extension cable plug. mis-matched plug bands generally go unnoticed as noone normally looks close enough.
