If you are a gamer or a music lover you should know the difference between Mono Audio and Stereo Audio and if you happen to be neither of them then let me help you with the difference.


If you have ever used earphones, headphones or multiple speakers you might have sometimes experienced that different sounds came out of each speaker. Like when you were using a headphone or earphone listening to your favourite song or watching your favourite movie with all the concentration in the world and suddenly you realised that each speaker of your headphone / earphone were producing discrete sounds. For example, one speaker on your headphone was playing the lyrics sung by the singer and other speaker was playing the music. This happens when Stereo settings is turned on.

In Mono Audio settings all the signals are received as if it were a single channel of sound perceived as coming from a single position. Stereophonic sound or, more commonly, stereo, is a method of sound reproduction that creates an illusion of multi-directional audible perspective so as to create the impression of sound heard from various directions, as in natural hearing.

Switch Between Mono and Stereo In Windows 10:

Step 1: Open Windows Settings.
Step 2: Click on Ease of Access.

Step 3: In the left panel click on other options.

Step 4: Then in the right panel the last option will be Mono Audio. You can toggle the switch to turn it on or off. By default this setting is turned off in Windows.
