Stereo recording playing back in mono through headphones


I am running audacity on a Mac with OS 12.5.1, Monterrey. I just updated Audacity to 3.2.0.

I have my I have my audio setup recording channels set to “2 (Stereo) Recording Channels.” In the track info panel it says “Stereo, 44100Hz, 32-bit float.” I am recording through a Samson Q2U stereo microphone. When I playback the track through my Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II I am only hearing the audio through the left ear. There is no sound in the right ear.

I did not have this problem in the previous version of Audacity using all of the same software and hardware.

Thoughts, please? Thank you.

Check if your Accessibility settings force stereo output to mono. It is a common problem if you cannot get a stereo output
