Yesterday I took the plug and upgraded my MacBook Pro to the latest version, finally!
I did face one annoying problem – when I plug my headphone into the Mac audio jack, there’s voice only on one side (I couldn’t tell which is right or left since the two sides on my headphone are exactly the same).
The unbalanced sound is oddly uncomfortable. Just imagine when Justin Bieber’s voice always comes from your right ear when he’s singing What Do You Mean, lol
I have never met such an issue when I upgraded my Mac last time, therefore I have no idea that the cause it.
Fortunately, I was able to fix the unbalanced sound issue in just a few steps. Here’s how:
Step 1: Click Apple logo on top left, then System Preferences…
Step 2: in the Preferences pane, click Sound.
Step 3: in the new window, under Output tab (select this one if you are not here). See Balance? Move the pointer to the middle, and you are all set.
P.S. In my case, it pointed to “right”, that’s why there was only sound coming from one side on my headphone.
Thanks for reading. Hope you find this tip useful.
