    Specs:
    Macbook Pro 15" unibody 4gb ram 500gb hd, matte screen.
    Resetting seems to have helped, however now that its been pointed out to me, I am noticing more bass response to the right side. Slightly annoying now that I notice it. Still, the sound is pretty good for a laptop...

    Just an FYI for some of you with imbalanced speakers on your older MacBook Pro, when using iChat, the sound ONLY comes out of the right and it's normal.

    My macbook white late 2009 model has this problem as well. Hasn't Apple fix it yet?

    Could the Macbook White owners care to verify this issue? Thanks.

    Apple has recently released a patch that fixes the sound imbalance for MBP. What about Macbook White?

    PM to you but getting the 13" low end MBP ...... Cant really justify the extra $700 for the 15's as much as would like one. I dont do music like you and not much video either so 13" will suit me too a tee
    Oh and the iPhone 4 when they arrive and by then should have fixed the low Bar count people keep going on about

    If you adjust your speaker balance to the left, can you hear anything from the right speaker?

    Which Macbook White are you using?

    Audio/Midi Setup?
    Rocc, where do you find the Audio/Midi Setup?

    My speaker imbalance is skewed to the LEFT (I know, weird) -- at first it only played from the left speaker, then I used the balance slider in Sound preferences and the right started playing, but in a compressed, mono tone. So even though both speakers are now working, the sound still leans left. I can't even listen to my music it's so irritating!

    Would like to try switching outputs as you did to see if this is indeed a software issue...might be worth re-installing the driver either way though, ya?

    Thanks,
    N

    I went into the Audio/Midi Setup section, and decided to experiment. I reversed the Audio Channels, making left/right and right/left. Curiously, the sound changed where the majority of the sound was now coming from the Left Speaker.

    I wonder if is could be a driver problem? Because using the software I was able to reverse it.

    Has anyone else tried this?

    I noticed this imperfection too - sound biased towards the RH speaker. Initially disappointed, I found this thread, and now am re-assured that it is not a fault with my own MacBook, although Apple should have done better. Am generally very pleased with the MacBook, if this is the only fault, I guess I will live with it.

    Sound balance works perfectly through headphones or external speakers. My 2 cents.
