New Headset dilemma (C-Media USB Headset to be precise)

Question: New Headset dilemma (C-Media USB Headset to be precise)

With my old headset i used to have a blast recording sounds/music coming out of my comptuer directly using wave out. Often for MSN voice clips and such.

I haven't changed anything, but now that i have this new headset, the only recording i seem to be able to do is voice recording in sound recorder, i can't seem to record wave out mix on sound recorder, and can't record anything whatsoever in msn voice clips.

I can hear voice clips sent to me though, strange thing is, when someone invited me to an audio conversation earlier, i got the annoying ringing noise alright , but i couldn't hear anything.

I checked my volume controls nothing is muted.
Any help would be fantastic! Thanks in advance

Answer:Headset microphone not recording when headset is default audio device

Hi iBSOADed and welcome to TenForums,

First of all, you shouldn't have had to worry about installing any drivers after installing Windows 10 as Windows should do that automatically.

Have you tried using the Corsair Gaming Headset Setup program in the Downloads section of this page? Vengeance® 2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset

I have an Acer Aspire V 15 (V5-591G-55pv) laptop. The laptop has a HEADSET jack (it shows a little symbol next to it referring to a headset with mic and headphone) and i have a headset that has 2 wires. 1 is for the headphones and the other is for the microphone, so i am using a headset adapter that came with the headset itself. I have used the microphone and the headset adapter on my PS4 controller and it works so the microphone is not defected. my computer does not detect my headphones but still plays audio through it, and the microphone is not detected.

I can't figure out how to fix this. I noticed that, when I'm watching a video, my headset's mic will relay the audio coming into my headset. Disabling Stereo Mix doesn't fix it. The physical controller that's on my headset cable doesn't stop it from happening, as even if I turn the volume knob all the way down and flick the mute switch, it's still picking up the audio. Muting my headset from within the computer stops the mic from hearing it, as does switching to my speakers that are plugged into the front jack. My headset is a 3.5mm jack type plugged into the back of the computer, directly into the motherboard.

Hey,

the topic pretty much says it. I bought myself a new headset(C-media headphone set or something) which uses a USB-port instead of an original sound-port-thing. The problem is, whenever I plug the headset in the USB-port pretty much nothing happens and I can't get the sound in the headset, it just stays in the speakers...

It used to be no problem when I used a headset with the sound-port on the motherboard to just change it. Anyone have any suggestions on what I might do? :(

edit: forgot to say that it works just fine after rebooting the computer.

Thank you

Answer:Problem with USB-headset(Can't switch between headset and speakers without rebooting)

Hi Foonksh,

Try going into the Control Panel and go into Sounds and Audio Devices. From there you can pick the default device for recording and for playback. In the playback section, set the headset as the default device instead of your speakers.

HELLO TO ALL !

I am knew on the board. Greetings

I installed a NEW Logitech USB Headset 350 onto my Winows XP Service Pack 2 generic 'puter.

I now have no speaker sound and no option shows except the headset and "Modem #1 line ".

It sorta looks like I have no speaker drivers .

Unplugging the headset does not help.

Anybody know how to fix this problem so I am not forced to wear a headset for audio ALL OF THE TIME ?

HELP !

(ME)
 

Answer:Installed new USB Headset NOW no speaker audio even if I unplug the headset

Yeah, my USB headset was a little weird at first as well.

Try going into your volume control (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control):
1. Click Options
2. Properties
3. Change the mixer device from the USB headset to your speakers.

Should work.

Also should note you can change the output settings in most audio software (for example: Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.) so if you can't hear anything from your speakers when using those programs, try fiddling with those settings as well. I know for Winamp it's Options > Preferences > Plug-ins > Output > double-click the plug-in you use (mine is out_ds.dll) and again change it to your speakers using the drop down menu.

I have a almost broken headset, but the microphone still works fine, The microphone is connected on the wire right before the headset, Its not actually touching the headset itself.

Would this microphone still work if the headset was cut off?

Sorry but I can't manage to take a photo but

Answer:Will a Headset microphone still work if I cut it off the Headset?

Is the microphone actually supported by the headset, by that I mean when the set is on your head is the microphone carried close to your mouth so you have both hands free. If this is the case then cutting off the headset will mean the microphone will not have any way of being held near your mouth.
If you cut it off you will have to be very careful you don't cut the wires for the microphone & it's possible that there is a common return wire for the earpieces & the microphone in the form of a shielded cable, so it would be very difficult, but if you have skills in this area it could be done.

I've searched around a lot about this topic, but after hours and days of searching, I've found nothing to fix my problem. I have a headset that has speakers and a microphone (3.5mm jacks) that work fine, except when I'm trying to talk to someone using the microphone, they can hear the sounds coming from my headset (youtube videos, game sounds etc). I've tried installing the Realtek HD Audio Codec but it disappears after it finishes installing and after I restart (although it still remains in the Programs and Features uninstall page), the program files for it is empty with the exception of RtlUpd64.exe which doesn't do anything when executed and a few other files.
In device manager, the things I have under sound, video and game controllers are Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus and the Intel Display Audio. I've updated everything to the latest. Also, I recently system restored my computer and before I did I had IDT High Definition Audio Drivers, but after updating they were changed.
I think the problem is that stereo mix is enabled somewhere or something to do with my drivers as when I tried plugging my headset into my brother's computer, it worked fine (he has the Gigabyte Realtek Audio Manager thing and was able to adjust the stereo mix settings).
If there's a program or workaround to this, or how to disable the stereo mix like through registry or something, please let me know.

Answer:Headset mic recording sounds through headset?

You are correct, that is the usual cause of this problem. And aside from being set in the drivers, it can sometimes be set in the application (used for the communication).

That model does appear to use the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio chipset. The problem is likely in the fact that you upgraded to Win10 and I don't see that HP supports nor supplies drivers for Win10 (I only see drivers for 7 and 8). Which means you are using generic drives supplied by Windows. The generic Windows drivers often work well enough to get hardware functional, but quite often don't support all hardware or all features of all hardware.

My budget is $20 and i have settled on those..

Answer:Which headset?

Can't say for sure, though I don't think it matters that much. You'll get the best opinion if anyone happens to own one.

The http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826106069 gives you more information on the product, while the other one doesn't.

personally, it wouldnt matter to me - I doubt the quality is that drastically different if you compare the two together.

If you don't like one, return it to Newegg, then get the other one. You have a 1 year warranty with them.

Note:

If you keep going through a few headsets in a while, you should invest your $$$ on a good headset that'll last you a long time. It just makes sense.

Question: Headset

I've had this head set for a while. It a Sound Blaster Arena Surround headset. Normally I have no problem switching between my main soundcard and my usb soundcard (headset).

After restarting earlier today i am not able to switch the default audio device. Certain programs only use the default sound device to emit sound.

Is there something that im doing wrong, i goto my sound devices, click on my head set, then use as default. When i hit ok and go back to that window it says my speakers are back to the default device. When i select my headset the apply button doesn't enable.

Whats wrong?

Answer:Headset

Go to the Control Panel then click on Sound. You should see the Realtek HD Audio Manager icon there. Click on that. When it loads up, double click on the two jack images below "Analogue" and you'll get a choice of headphone or line out.
See if this resolves your issue!

I purchased a USB MIC/Headset and set all the settings as instructed in other posts. There is STILL a 1 second delay between the sound actually happening and the sound reaching the headset this is maddening while attempting to record my singing. It is OBVIOUSLY an OS issue and I for one would love to see it resolved. Since the USB Mic/Headset does not use sound drivers it IS NOT REPEAT NOT a driver issue. I have set the record settings to 0 and muted it as well there is STILL a 1 second delay. FIX IT dont dance around the issue JUST FIX IT

Question: USB Headset

A Microsoft Lifechat LX-3000, to be precise.

Hearing is no problem. Both earpieces are fine.

It's recording that's giving me problems right now. Windows Sound Recorder apparently doesn't know I'm making any noise into this thing. I've been trying all kinds of things; setting it as default sound recorder in audio properties, pressing this mute button thing (If anyone knows, when the light turns on, does it mean it's muted or unmuted?), all for nothing.

I did, however, load up Steam to try its microphone tester, and, surprisingly, it picks up a ton of white noise. That's not the strange part. Nothing I do will make any more noise...

...Except for tapping this control panel thing. I tap it, and about a second later, I can hear the tap echo among all the white noise. I tried opening the thing to see if there was anything blatantly obvious to fix, but I didn't see anything.

Any ideas?

Hi everyone,So I've decided to go and buy a new headset after my current one is getting a bit dodgy in some aspects.I am limited to buying from this website: http://www.pccasegear.comand I am quite confident in buying one of two Corsair headsets. I'm completely indecisive of which one though. One is a direct USB connection, and the other one is analogue that I would use with my Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card.First option: Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 Dolby 7.1 USB Headset(Note that this is virtual 7.1 surround sound with Dolby software)Second option: Corsair Vengeance 1400 Analog Headset(Note that this is stereo only)My main concern is whether or not it is better to get the more recent 1500 model or the older 1400 model that I could use with my sound card.I'm also open to suggestions of other headsets, although they need to be worth less than $110 on the website I mentioned. I'll be using the headset for the entire range of things from gaming to movies to music. I will be using the mic every day as well.

VR Headset for the PC

With the Oculus Rift coming out, I?ve been interested in getting into the 3D craze. I know 3D is something that?s been akin to a fad in that it?s a nice novelty to mess with every now and then. However, I much prefer a 3D TV over a 4K (not that I wouldn?t want both; but, should I buy one, I?d like to keep the purchase under $1k).

A VR headset adds to that. Aside from being in 3D, you get to look around in the 3D space. I like that kind of emersion. As such, anyone know of a cheap VR system that will work with a PC? I?d like to keep the purchase to under $200. However, I?m not going to be optimistic about that price range. As such, anything up to $1k.

Question: Headset

Hey, I recently purchased a Plantronic 350 headset w/ the PC switcher to change from Speaker to headset. I plugged the PC switcher into the back of my computer where my video card is (Pink and green) and then plugged my headset cable into the PC switcher and my speaker cable into the 3rd hole in the back of the PC switcher. Now when i play music or im in a game i can hear everything on the headset and when i switch it to speakers using the PC switcher i can hear everything through my speakers. But my problem is I cannot seem to get the mic working at all. I went to control panel, hardware and sound, sound, recording, and it shows Microphone (high definition audio device) working with a check on it, Line in (high definition audio device) working, Line in (high definition audio device) working, and last Digital input device (SPDIF) (high definition audio device) working. But when i go to test it, it doesnt work or anything. Can anyone help me with my problem please?

Question: Headset Help

Hey all, I'm looking for a new headset. It would be mostly for gaming. I'm not to sure what the advantage would be for USB vs 3.5 for connection. I think I want surround sound headset so I can play late at night without waking the Miss, Unless you tell me otherwise to stick with stero type. I'm willing to spend around 150 bucks or more if it will get me agood pair. I do have a seperate sound card with surround sound. Plus I would still like to keep me existing 5.1 surround speakers. Is this a problem? Do I have to manually go behind PC and connect speakers/headset every time I want to swtich them back or fourth? Thanks
 

Answer:Headset Help

getting one with a usb connection will mean that you won't have to disconnect anything, and 3.5mm will only give you stereo sound unless you get a headset that can emulate surround sound

if you have front panel audio ports then you could quite easily be able to plug a 3.5mm pair in without disconnecting your existing speakers

shop around on pc or audio specialty websites and see what you can get, newegg.com is a good one for pc parts but i don't know if they have a/v equipment on there as well

Question: Which headset?

So, right now im using a Logitech headset to play WoW on. Its alright, it has surround sound and stuff. Very uncomfortable, and tired of the cords getting underneath my chair, obviously isnt the best headset, considering it was only $30. So what headsets would you recomend me buying? I've been thinking about buying the WoW Wireless Headset. Just dont know if thats the best deal.

Anything wireless and anything under $200 you recomend.
 

Answer:Which headset?

Don't think wireless headsets are really as big a thing as marketing people suggest. They are prone to noise, heavier, and generally not as good as their wired counterparts at this moment.

Whatever it is, don't ever think you'd get away with a cheap pair. The noise alone will make using them unbearable.

My suggestion is to actually try it out for yourself: earphones can be a pretty personal thing, unlike asking about the best CPU or graphics card (kinda like asking someone whats the best restaurant in town).

I just bought these a week ago, great for gaming and easy on the pocket (unless your looking for an expensive set), real comfortable and the mike is very strong and clear, I can always speak over anyone when using TS. Plus, they sport the vibrating speakers, so when they pick up large bass frequencies they vibrate on your ears, real fun when playing games, late and in the dark.

Just an idea...

Just wondering what you guys think about my choice. My Astro A30 mic is starting to break after a 1 and a half - 2 years, rather than replacing the boom mic, I decided it was about time to get some new headphones (want some over ear ones).

I decided I would go with a pair of normal headphones as apposed to 'gaming' headphones and just buy a separate mic.

Thinking about this combo, any input?

Answer:USB Headset

Just keep them plugged in...you are asking your puter to reinstall the device to a USB port for which it is already assigned and you would then have to reboot with it connected to be recognized. All you need to do to patch to your stereo is to use a 1/4" to RCA
http://www.trianglecables.com/255-055.html

Then direct into your stereo via RCA Cables. Capice? The headset is unaffected by the soundcard out and patch cables.

Hi everyone,

So I've decided to go and buy a new headset after my current one is getting a bit dodgy in some aspects.

I am limited to buying from this website: http://www.pccasegear.com
and I am quite confident in buying one of two Corsair headsets. I'm completely indecisive of which one though. One is a direct USB connection, and the other one is analogue that I would use with my Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card.

First option: Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 Dolby 7.1 USB Headset
(Note that this is virtual 7.1 surround sound with Dolby software)

Second option: Corsair Vengeance 1400 Analog Headset
(Note that this is stereo only)

My main concern is whether or not it is better to get the more recent 1500 model or the older 1400 model that I could use with my sound card.

I'm also open to suggestions of other headsets, although they need to be worth less than $110 on the website I mentioned. I'll be using the headset for the entire range of things from gaming to movies to music. I will be using the mic every day as well.

Hey guys so long story short my headset went kaput one day but it was old so I saw this coming, got a new headset and plugged it in, it was working fine for a short while then this one went kaput for seemingly no reason (while it was working i did some set up and noticed some sporatic static not sure if its relevant or not). I opened up device manager and it showed two unidentified devices, one under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers". I tried to update drivers, uninstall then scan for hardware changes and it seems like nothing I do works. When I try the latter immediately after I get a (what I would describe as) whooshing noise and then the sound audibly cuts and it pops back up in device manager as an unidentified device I'm at a complete loss as to what to do in this scenario, I tried a couple of other ports on the pc but the scene played out the same way. I have also gone so far as to have dont a restart of windows with deleting all of my personal files but the problem persists, the sad part is that I guarantee the headset works as well as the usb port because other devices in the usb port work and the headset on other devices works. I'm completely out of ideas at this point and would love any help :/

Headset Microphone Help
I am at the end of my wits. I've troubleshooted with various sites regarding my issue, but I still can't find a fix. The headset works fine on my other computer, so the headset itself is not at fault.

I have Windows Vista operating system.
I have a microphone-headset combination, with two separate lines (one for mic-the other for the headset).
They are both plugged into their respective correct ports.
The headset works fine, but the system doesn't detect the microphone at all.

I have tried downloading a new driver as one site suggested, and it still doesn't work.
I've rebooted several times. That doesn't wotk.
I've tried using other microphones. Still nothing.

Everything on my computer is up to date, including my sound card and driver.

On top of that when I click the speaker icon to access that menu, I go to recording and 'NO AUDIO DEVICES INSTALLED' appears.

I have accessed my device manager to allow it to scan for updates for the "High Definition Audio Device" that is listed in the file for 'Sounds, video and game controllers'.
The response after the scan was "The best driver software for your device is already installed. The driver software is up to date"

But the microphone is still not working, and it is not being detected. The system still shows "No Audio Devices Installed"

Please help me.

Question: New Headset!

Hey all, I've been without an actual headset for a few months and I really miss it, lol. I've decided to get another and would like to spend <$100.

So far I've been looking at the Razer Carcharias and the Creative Sound Blaster Arena, so something at around that price would be cool. The headset I do purchase will be used for music and gaming, so comfort/good sound would be nice. Anybody have any suggestions?

Question: USB Headset

How do I adjust settings to take my USB headset and microphone?

Answer:USB Headset

GHooper, welcome to the forum. If I understand your situation, you want to setup your headset and microphone.  If this is correct, you go into the Control Panel / Sound and check to assure that your headset and microphone are set as the Default.  You would have to install any software or driver that came with them before beginning. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.
