    Is there a way to adjust the EQ (ie... bass/treble) on SP2?

    Most audio/video player have it.
    In Windows Media Player 12, you can right-click on the program, and click on:
    "Enhancement">"Graphic equalizer"

    Thanks for responding.

    I use my headphones a lot of the time to reduce distraction for others. Compared to my other devices I use the headphones with the sound on the Surface sounds muddy regardless of source.

    So I was hoping that there might driver, app or program that would allow overall adjustment of EQ on the surface. Thought maybe realtec driver that included EQ.

    Thanks again Goodbytes.

    A 2$ sound chip can only get you so far.
    Look into USB dedicated sound card for improved sound experience, a which point, assuming you cash out on the expensive models, your headphone will be the limiting factor.

    Avoid Creative Labs products. If you do, don't expect Windows 9 support. They like to push you to get a new device every Windows version. Also their drivers are poorly made.

    Was originally hoping for a software solution but after reading some of your suggestions I am leaning toward the FiiO E17 Alpen Portable Headphone Amplifier USB DAC.

    Thanks for all the input, I had not considered a hardware fix...
