Ubuntu: Bad quality “hollow and distorted” sound on iMac


Background info:

  • Late 2009 iMac
  • Ubuntu 17.10
  • Using Apple's internal speakers
  • No modified settings
  • Default sound drivers


Any kind of sound or music in any application sounds distorted and hollow. The sound quality is noticeably different from macOS regardless of the application I use, especially when music is playing. My normal output volume is really low, below unamplified. I also don't allow any louder than 100%.


What can I do to fix this? I've already seen some questions similar to this but none of them actually helped that much.
