Sorry. Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Realtek Audio Manager
If you're using a audio software, or your laptop has a card, go to the software for that.

I believe that only works on systems that use Realtek audio chipsets?

just now while listening to my headphone, i feel one side is more hollow and less loud than the other. i'd like to check for channel imbalance. i just searched on head-fi a bit just now, and some threads / posters suggest to change the audio from stereo to mono, and go from there.

 

my question is... how to change the sound from stereo to mono on windows 8...?

 

ps: i hvn't google anything yet, i did try to look for it on my windows 8 pc by myself just now for around ~5-10 mins but cant find it. and figure id ask here now...

 

cheers :D

Third paragraph irked me hard. But I'll try to help.

 

The first thing you should check is if the cable is off or dying, it's possible that the wire or connector is not functioning properly, and causing weird sound. 

 

In terms of software, your PC should default to stereo, "mono" would usually mean that the same thing is played on both channels, so one side would not sound different from the other. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that someone/something messed with the settings, but it doesn't seem possible.

Even if it were realtek, most OEMs do not include the panel, or they modify the featureset
