Headphone Impedance Sensing for Realtek Audio Control shows >1000 ohms for my 60 ohm headset.

HyperX Cloud III Headset

For the longest while now, my headphones would occasionally start screaming at me with an exceptionally loud static noise that only played whenever any audio is playing. I just discovered ASUS's Realtek Audio Control panel and apparently the Headphone Impedance Sensing feature thinks my HyperX Cloud IIIs need an ohmage of over >1000. image_2024-01-28_193959776.png

I'm very worried that the software can potentially fry either my headphones or my motherboard, so i at least hope we get an option to manually adjust it ourselves...

Hello NecoHazel

Try changing the Amplify Level, it's currently set to Extreme.

Choosing a different setting should lower the Headphone Impedance Sensing.

 

 

I lowered the Amplify level down to Performance and it didn't change anything...

Thank you for trying.

Are you able to use both the motherboard 3.5mm audio jacks and your case 3.5mm audio jacks?

And do both give the same impedance sensing of over 1000 ohms?

 

 

 

Yes, they both gave the same impedance sensing results. I also tried using different brand headsets to no avail.

I should have 65 ohms, but I have more, how to fix this?
