    Is there any way to increase the sound on my pc. I'm going on a plane and everytime I try to watch a video I can barely hear anything. I have these headphones and it still doesnt do the job. any advice? new sound card? new headphones?

    make sure that software or external volume controls (if any) are maxed out.

    if it's still weak, you may want to look at headphone amplifiers or a new sound card.

    I had this same problem. I was all pumped to be able to watch a movie on a long ass flight but couldn't hear a thing.

    it could also be the player you're using, I've had issues before with windows media player having really low volume levels, play the same video with VLC and it's fine.

    A lot of it has to do with the lower air pressure on airplanes in flight. Everything is quieter; you might notice that the jets also are quieter than they are on the ground.
