Default Problem with soundcard

Hi guys,

I just received my new soundcard "Asus xonar dx"

And I got a problem,

I can hear sounds from my headset... but 1 Side is louder then the other side
I dont know why and I didnt had this before...
there is a mixer to adjust the sound on each side but if I do 50/50 the left side is louder then the other side
my headset was fine in the morning but when I installed the new soundcard then everything changed

I also wanna tell that I have done a fresh Windows 7 installation... but I dont think that would be the problem...

drivers isn't the problem as far I can see.

Hope 1 of you knows a solution because its not nice to have 1 side a bit louder then the other side
its just not nice in gaming

Have you re-seated the headphone plug? Are you using the front headphone jack or the one on the card?

^ Sounds like your jack isn't plugged all the way in like everyone's said. Try testing your headphones on another device like an iPod or another computer and see if you still have the problem.
