Test your surround speakers or headphones online
Click the buttons above to test your sound.
Not sure if your speakers or headphones are working correctly?
Our sound test will help you quickly test your sound without installing any software.
Step 1. Make sure that your headphones or speakers are connected and not muted.
Step 2. Click the buttons on your left one-by-one to test each speaker alone and both speakers together in stereo.
Done! If you heard a sound playing from both speakers separately and in stereo, your sound is working perfectly.
If you didn't hear anything, there might be a problem with your connection or setup. Take a look at the frequent problems/solutions section below.
Here you can find solutions to common problems and answers to frequent questions.
There are a couple of common reasons why your sound might not be working.
Find out the name of your sound card by navigating to the "Device Manager" on Windows and looking at the section "Sound". Take note of your sound card's name. Head over to Google and search for "name of your sound card" + "drivers". For example, "realtek sound card drivers". Download and install the drivers. If needed, restart your computer and recheck your sound.
If all that seems like a lot of work, then you can use driver finding software to keep your drivers automatically up-to-date. We recommend using DriverBooster.
On every major operating system (such as Windows, Mac OS and Linux distros), there's a speaker symbol () on either bottom-right or top-right of the screen. Click the symbol () and adjust your volume by moving the slider.
You have connected your speakers, or are wearing your headphones, the wrong way - don't worry happens to everyone. All you need to do is switch the location of your speakers or rewire the cables the other way around.
Check that your speaker is connected to your computer and is turned on. If your speaker is both connected and turned on and the sound still doesn't work. You might have a faulty speaker.
