The Realtek HD Audio Drivers for Windows Vista provide a computer user with better audio drivers for an all-around better listening experience. I have installed these drivers on my computer and they are much better than the original drivers. They offer many customization features that are great for any situation.
For those who think good software needs to come with a price, they should try out these Realtek drivers. They are free to install almost anywhere online. They will be an instant upgrade to the original drivers that come with Windows software.
Regular windows audio drivers are just there to provide a user with the bare necessities. To listen to audio at all, these drivers need to be installed. When users upgrade to these Realtek drivers, the sound is instantly improved.
The HD sound is like listening to a CD versus a cassette tape. The difference is substantial enough that almost anyone can hear the difference. The user doesn't need to be an audiophile to appreciate the benefits of having these free Realtek HD drivers.
More Customization Options
One of the best reasons to install this software is to take advantage of the equalizer functions. These settings allow the user to make the music or movies sound like they were intended to. Everyone is different, and there are many options to find the one that sounds the best.
The surround sound feature inside this software is excellent because it provides a virtual sound enclosure coming from all around. If a user has a good set of computer speakers attached to the computer, he or she can now hear gunshot fire from all around. For gaming, this is very important.
Hearing footsteps from each speaker and behind a computer user is crucial to succeeding in military-type games. Without surround sound, you might not hear the person creeping up behind you. Surround sound in general is fantastic in movies as well. It makes the user feel like he or she is inside the movie.
This program makes it easy for anyone to customize his or her computer. Many programs are so advanced that regular people who have never used a computer before will have trouble changing options. The Realtek HD software is just a point-and-click program that is so simple a chimp could use it.
There are still advanced settings inside the software for computer-savvy people to get their fix. Changing the amount of speakers in a setup can make the sound more focused and upfront. Changing microphone settings also comes in handy.
Microphone settings in windows are not that advanced. With the HD software, users can change their microphone to have a better sound quality. For gaming, this makes it easier for friends to hear them through their microphone.
Cutting out background noise for the microphone is also easy. There are visual images inside the software that a person can instantly mute a fan behind them. This is something that doesn't come in regular software drivers.
