Is it normal for the Aspire A315-24P built-in speakers to sound very tinny?

I just bought a refurbished model and everything seems great, except for when I watch a video and it sounds weird and tinny. It sounds normal if I plug in my Apple ear buds and listen with them.

Is this a case of poor quality speakers, or is something off with the refurbishment? Thanks for any insight or troubleshooting advice you can offer.

    This model is barely 10 months on the market and already there are "refurbished" models for sale?
    The very basic Realtek 2019 ALC255M audio chipset and speakers inside, like all Aspire 5 laptops, produce very low sound volume that lack bass, you have to turn on Windows11 sound enhancement in advanced sound settings and use "Movie" in the speaker True Harmony setting in Realtek Audio Console to get decent sound at 80% volume. Windows new Media player has an internal equalizer (right click menu) that can boosts the volume by +12db and improves the overall sound quality too. Online embedded media players (You Tube) cannot be controlled but Windows Edge browser has good sound volume booster extensions. I recommend good quality BT headsets with a build-in amplifier.
