[ SOLVED ] Beats Audio compression and volume fluctuation

Beats Audio compression and volume fluctuation has become a common problem in HP ENVY m6-1178sa. You might be wondering if there's actually been a fix for this yet, as it seems to be a common problem. Using an HP ENVY m6-1178sa and after scouring the internet high and low, none of the fixes seem to be working at all. Whether using the onboard laptop speakers, external speakers, or headphones, all loud sections in songs are dramatically reduced in volume and the low end is totally sucked out. I've had to revert to listening to music on my phone because Beats makes certain songs borderline unlistenable.

Here is the solution for this problem. 

1. Check the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IDT\Config\UI" key in the registry using "regedit" app . Look for a value called "Config_SRSPreset". It will contain the XML file name your laptop uses. This file should be in 

 C:\Program Files\IDT\WDM 

2. Open Notepad as Administrator and edit this file by going into section that says


3. find two lines:
<control name="MAXV-Process Enable">1</control>
<control name="VIQ-Process Enable">1</control>

and change 1s to zeroes and save it.

4. Right click on the tray icon and find the beats audio icon, then right click to open the beats audio control panel
Go to listening preferences and switch to movie then to back to music. It will reread the configuration from the disk and should apply new settings. No need to restart. 

If above solution didnot work then download the driver below :
