What's your set up? By full range do you mean 20Hz-20kHz? You could go to the equalizer (depending on your player).

Ah, not sure what exactly it does since I'm assuming most speakers cover 20-20,000 hz. Have you tried foobar 2000 yet?

Define "comfortable" and "full-range", still a bit lost on that.

And foobar still uses the Windows sound system unless it's ASIO4ALL or WASAPI (and even then...)

 

But especially define "comfortable" again.

Non-fatiguing, not strident (assuming lack of peaks, or excess treble quantity/brightness)? Do you mean that? The full-range setting has nothing to do with that. Yes, the concept of subs, tweeters are not lost on me yet :P

 

Might want to try an EQ then to tone the treble down. Or maybe your gear is set up wrong.

ah :s might be the music you listen or maybe even the speakers/acoustics themselves. 

 

So pretty much ear fatigue? I get that from rap/lots of synthesized bass or songs w/ some bad lyrics. 

 

As for the full-range, it's probably microsoft trying to enhance the sound. Full range is pretty much the 20Hz-20kHz that humans here. So if your speakers/phones have at least that much, they pretty much are full-range. OR they're the big drivers:

^I think they're the ones in the pictures.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full-range_speaker as opposed to the multi-driver setups with woofers and tweeters and crossovers.

Not that it matter since you're trying to change a setting in this case, and these speakers (not going to generalize), headphones, whatever have complete frequency extension (in your case) already.

 

The full-range setting is probably a DSP or some EQ that boosts treble and bass, making things brighter. That's where the fatigue is coming from.

Which headphones? 

Speakers on laptops are bright and tinny a lot of the time.

Has this been a common occurrence or just recently came up? The fatigue I mean.

Again, try to EQ the treble down and report back.

Not that it should make much difference with the problem, but the exact Realtec in question (dac chip, etc, etc)
