If your PC was shipped with the Nahimic audio driver pre-installed, a recent update to the driver added the companion app to provide a user interface for the driver and allow you to add additional Nahimic features. In the past, if your PC was using the Nahimic audio driver to optimize sound quality, there was no user interface letting you know when it was being updated or used. The companion app is there to let you know the version and to help you maintain your drivers.
The Nahimic audio driver is audio software that optimizes the performance of the speakers in your PC.
The Nahimic audio driver adds speaker correction (fine tuning), which lets your PC achieve the original sound design planned by your PC manufacturer. PC manufacturers work with Nahimic to optimize the sound design and performance of the PC and the driver and companion app ensure that the sound is optimized. Without the Nahimic audio driver your PC may not sound as intended by the manufacturer. An added benefit of the Nahimic audio driver is protecting your speakers by reducing excess vibration, ensuring you can enjoy higher volume without buzzing or distortion.
The Nahimic audio driver is preinstalled on many PCs, Motherboards and Headset/Headphones by manufacturers like MSI, Lenovo, Dell, Alienware, Gigabyte, Huawei, Honor, Machenike, Thunderobot, AsRock.
If you uninstall the Nahimic audio driver:
Sound quality may noticeably decline. The volume you experience may not be as loud as with the driver installed. The speakers may begin buzzing or vibrating at when listening at higher volumes. It is possible to damage the speakers when listening at a high volume. You will lose all the additional features included with the Nahimic application. (EQ, Surround Sound, Bass boost, Treble boost…)
After a Windows update or an unexpected malfunction, Nahimic might fail to initialize properly and the following message could appear "Nahimic has failed to initialize".
