PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XPproSP2
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Speedlink Medusa 5.1 USB headset
Error Messages:



Initially when I got the headset, it sounded awesome. Really loud, the entire house could hear it. Sounded like a warzone playing Counter-Strike Source. And yes, CSS is set to 5.1.

Now I updated drivers as I regularly do and the sound went kind of tinny. So I rolled them back and it was still tinny, uninstalled and reinstalled and well the sound just wasnt the same.

My system volume is just under the first bar on the scale. and the medusa volume from it's cp is near the start. BUT. it was always like that, and BF2 on a friends PC with 5.1 hs, almost blew my head off... now on my PC it sounds normal.

Can anyone help me as in settings for this device to get the full on cinematic blow your eardrums sound experience?

Thanks.

Do you have a soundblaster card? If so you need to install the newest drivers (or the original drivers you had if you know what they are either should work), then navigate to the creative folder (usually c:\Program Files\creative) and run SurMix2.exe which should be in (C:\Program Files\Creative\SBLive\SurMix2) unless you change the directory.

You should be able to pick the speaker setup in there. That's how I got my 5.1 to work...

well aside from the usb headset, which has a driver built into the remote.

I had onboard audio, that is disabled at the minute.

well regardless, you have to have a place to plug it into your computer (a sound card)...if you don't have it plugged into the onboard audio, you must have it plugged into a third party card (e.g. sound blaster).

Where do your headphones plug into the computer?

I thought I mentioned it's USB.

It should work. The sound card is built into the remote Smiley

I guess I could get a sound card and a new headset.

oh my bad, I didn't even see that...hmm I've never dealt with that.

Regardless, there should be a program that came with the drivers that will allow you to configure the headphones.
