Sound is the one of the most important feature of any device. Many people are obsessed with
the sound quality, and when they do not get the desired output they prefer dumping the device itself without thinking of any other alternative that can be used to fix the problem.

Instead of getting their driver updated or reinstalled, they prefer changing the speaker itself thinking that it will resolve their issues. In some cases, it may work if the speakers are too old or damaged. But, if your speakers are working fine with other devices, then clearly it is the time to update your sound card to get better audio quality.
