Stereo Cables Not Consistently Delivering Stereo Sound via Headphone Port

Greetings,
I sincerely hope this finds everyone in good health and spirits during these very trying times.

I am communicating my dilemma even though my solution may require hardware replacement support for my computer headphone port.

I have a significant number of cables that appear to have a stereo design (double rings on the end of its connection) however, not all of these cables are delivering a stereo sound when my music is played. I am now down to one cable that delivers a stereo sound all of the time so my need is to resolve this issue ASAP.

Could this issue be remedied by a sophisticated port extension/adapter, or perhaps a more reliable cable purchase? Thanks in advance for any and all feedback.

Stay Safe! <3,
The Karaoke Queen

Re: Stereo Cables Not Consistently Delivering Stereo Sound via Headphone Port

If you are using the 1/8 inch stereo cables, I would say replace them. These little thin wires break from folding and or rolling them up over and over.

I keep about 6 of them handy at all times because they are cheap.

The XLR or 1/4 inch male or female are most expensive.

Although they do not fail as often, I still keep extras of them for the same reason...

Re: Stereo Cables Not Consistently Delivering Stereo Sound via Headphone Port

If you are using headphone jack to get the sound from the computer to mixer, id highly urge you to not use it any longer and invest in a decent external USB sound interface (if your mixer doesnt already have one built in - some of the newer ones do). It will open up the sound like going from a 10 watt light bulb in a room and replaced with a 100 watt light bulb in that same room.

Lonman,
Thanks for your response. I have done just that and do see a remarkable difference.
