Just recently I've purchased and install an Asus Xonar DSX soundcard for use with my headphones (AD700x) H
However after about 3 days with only about 3 hours use, sound would only come out of my left earphone. I tried reseating the soundcard to no avail, I the had to shoot out the house to pick my little one up, came back and the sound was working again, however onnly for about an hour before the problem popped up again.
I've tried plugging my speaker into the sound card input and the same problem persists (my speakers have been working fine for about 4 years before this)
I've also tried plugging everything into my motherboards audio inputs with no success. I've also just completely reinstalled Windows 7 to see if that can fix the problem but it STILL persists!
I'm totally at a loss and pretty annoyed by this now so any help would be greatly appreciated.

So I've just tried turning the volume right up, then using 'configure speakers' to test both the left and right. The left plays fine on both my headphones and speakers. When I test the right speaker, it comes through really quietly through the left speaker/headphone.
I've just unplugged my headphones and tried plugging them into the Wii U gamepad to see what happens, it didn't work BUT I now plugged them back into the soundcard audio input and voila they work! HOWEVER this HAS happened earlier and then the sound went again so I'm wondering if any sense can be made of this utterly strange behaviour before it happens again?
It IS working again now but I'm scared to even listen to anything. I did uninstall the Realtek HD audio drivers so could they perhaps clash with the sound card drivers? It didnt make a different though until I unplugged and then plugged my headphones back in though.
