Audacity rebalancing Left/Right headphone volume on startup

Hey, sorry if this is a common question, but my headphones have imbalanced left/right output, and I set the output volume in sound settings but when I open audacity, it always sets both to be equal. Is there any way to stop this from happening?

Whether or not that happens depends on the sound card and sound card drivers - some do and some don’t. There’s no way in Audacity to change that.

Of course the best solution is to fix or replace the faulty headphones.
