I had this problem. I right clicked on the speaker icon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen, selected playback devices, left clicked to highlight the 'speakers' (realtek in my case) then clicked properties in the lower right of the open window, clicked on the enhancements tab, and found that my sound effect properties had been changed to auditorium. I clicked the selection arrow and changed the enhancements to 'none'. Oh happy day! No more echo.

    Thank you so much, this was driving me nuts. The music wasn't too bad but when the radio announcer came on it sounded really odd. I went to my settings and somehow they had changed to bathroom. Why would anyone want to have their speakers sound like they're playing in a bathroom??? Weird LOL... Thanks again, thrilled to have "normal" sound again :)

I have windowsxp in my computer, how can I get rid of the echo in my sound systems, it sounds like they're in an echo chamber

  • infopink Sep 08, 2010

    To fix this problem I had to go to the Control Panel, switch to classic view, choose Sound Effect Manager and choose under Environment. The Generic setting gave me the echo-effect but now it's gone - finally!

I clicked on the Realteck HD Audio Manager in the tool bar (don't know how it got there) and found I was in "stone corridor" in the "environment" settings. I reset to "none" and the echo left.

Thank you infopink! I did resolve the 'echo' in my speakers. I changed environment to none.

Steps (for XP)
1. Control Panel
2. Make sure it's on Classic View; check upper left corner
3. Double click 'Sound Effect Manager'
4. Option from the drop-down arrow below Environment must be changed to 'None'

Solved!

I found that when my Windows speaker was higher than about 60% I got an echo efffect. I turned up the application (web site) speaker to max and turned down the Windows speaker.

Yes, this worked, in Control Panel (for me) look for Reltek HD Sound Effect Manager. I now recall playing with this many months back and must have left it set to Auditorium but now today I couldn't recall how to get here to correct it. I'm getting old, I forget things.

Sounds sound like an echo chamber

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window right-click your Speakers and select Configure Speakers.
3. Follow the on-screen setup, and Test the available configurations.
4. Indentify whether or not one configuration appears to have less of an “echo” than others.
5. If the issue is resolved by modifying the configuration then you do not need to do anything further

All sounds in my computer sound like they are in an echo chamber

Thats because your sound card is actually set to sound that way. What you need to do is open your sound device manager under the control panel and then adjust the sound to your liking

Very bad echo, on my NEW Acer laptop 8730G-6945

I had this problem for months - I finally figured it out on my own...

Go to your RealTek HD Audio Manager (this is either a red speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner or if you go to 'control panel, sounds speak and audio devices, realtek hd sound effect manager)

once you have the window open, under 'sound effect, go to environment and to the right of the drop down menu, click 'RESET'.

After months of trying to fix this issue, this fixed it for me!!! I hope it does for you too!

How do get rid of echo on sound from speakers?

When you say echo, are you meaning sound coming from your mic echoing thru the speakers or a sound like your in a bathroom on all audio.

If you are referring to the mic issue, then open your volume control and make sure that MIC is muted in playback setttings

If you are refering to bathroom sound on everything , it is called a "environmental setting" and in in your sound cards software setup, like their version of the volume control or some other application they have installed for you to configure your card. Just locate the "environmental" setting and disable it / set it to none.

Help with Sound

I cannot say directly for your particular model. I will give you a generic answer that can apply to most any computer.

If you hear an echo, look carefuly thorugh the setup for the sound card. Look for anything to do with special effects.

Look for the options or properties that have to do with the sound card that is in the computer. Many of them have special effects capability.

Sound problem

What motherboard are you using? Does it have a Volume effects changer option on its Sound Card? Try changing that option first.

Sound problem

Sounds silly but, try muting your built in microphone, because i'l bet, the mic is picking up the sound from yours speakers and causing the echo. That's wot i've found on a few occassions. Other than that, check sound and video drivers by click Start>Run, then type in 'dxdiag' (without quotes) this will run a diagnostic on audio and video. Please rate this solution
