Xbox One - Accessibility - Audio balancing for left-right
The Xbox One already provides a lot of features in terms of accessibility.
One feature that is missing in my opinion is the option to manually balance the audio for left-right. Many Microsoft devices (e.g. phones, workstations) already offer the opportunity to balance it yourself.
The reason i'm asking is that my own hearing is slightly impaired (25-30%) on one side (right) rendering headphones practically useless for many games. In my idea this is a relative simple feature to add to the accessibility options, making the Xbox One system more and more accessible to all members in the public, including those with hearing problems.
Hope to hear (no pun intended) from the Dev team as soon as possible!
Has anyone had any luck with this issue. left ear needs volume boosting without killing the right side. just bought astro a40 and there loud but balance options for £250 needs to be included
Audio Balance? Been asking this question for years. Hearing loss to some degree is quite common. You are getting a lot of aging gamers that are going to be in need of this function so you can't ignore our request forever.. .Apple and Sony has it... and most Microsoft products have it. Completely deaf in left ear. Would be nice to hear the sounds they split for the "stereo" effect. Simple conversations in tv shows or games are muted on the left and loud and clear on the right. Would be nice if I could shift audio OR at the very least.... turn it into MONO vs STEREO so I can hear what is being said.

I also need this feature. With games getting more advanced I find it hard to hear things as I’m 70 % deaf in my left ear.
I absolutely agree!!!! And also screen sizing!!!!!! Is another big one that needs to be added because a lot of people loose there tv remotes “me” so the outer edges are missing
Xbox Accessibility Team! Would be nice if you could actually reply to my earlier comments- any update?
any update yet?
re-posting my earlier comment: Any update on above idea? Feasible / not feasible? Regards, Karel

Apparently a lot of other users (like myself) would like to see such a feature as well, see: https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/4oxrdi/cant_adjust_leftright_balance_on_xbox_one/
Thank you for the response! Hope to hear from the engineering team soon!
