    Not sure, so let's run through some basic troubleshooting.

    CMD+R, type in mmsys.cpl in the Run dialogue box. In Sound, press Playback tab, right-click your speakers and select Properties. Should be an Enhancements tab and usually there's a loudness equalisation option. Try tick that, then Apply/OK. Any better?

    If not, let's try update the sound drivers. CMD+R, devmgmt.msc, expand the Sound option, right-click your sound driver and select Update Driver Software. Search automatically (W10's pretty good for updating drivers automatically). If it downloads/installs an update, restart after that's completed.

    If there's no update available, try right-click and select Properties. Then Details tab and select Hardware IDs from the drop-down Property list. Copy & paste the values as a response to this, then I'll have a look online and see if there's an update elsewhere. Also if you were to do this, please advise of the Driver Date & Driver Version -- this can be found in the Driver tab on the Properties menu.
