Can't hear audio for imported MP3


I imported a MP3 into Audacity and it’s showing two double waveforms. I can’t hear audio at all. I can hear audio fine when playing the same file in Groove Music. Is there a setting I should be changing? What’s going on here?

Thank you!

If you are using a USB audio device, see:

I’m not using a USB audio device. I imported from a file saved on my desktop.

And I checked the playback devices setting. That hasn’t resolved the issue.

Would you like to share that information?

I’m using headphones. They play other audio fine – including this file when I open it in other applications. I just can’t hear the audio in Audacity. Is it because of the dual waveforms?

What sort of headphones? USB? Bluetooth? How do they connect to the computer?
