Not sure whether this should be here or int he WIndows section as it seems to be linked to my OS. Anyway, I just got the Logitech Gaming Headset G330 for Christmas (ps: Merry Christmas, all!). It has two speakers and a boom mic. The mic and speakers connect on separate stereo jacks, which can plug into a regular audio port, but also come with a USB dongle to integrate them into just one connection (mic + headphones = USB). Using the single headphone cable works great from my back panel audio, as well as my iPod. (Didn't try the mic one). However, when using the USB dongle on MY pc, the mic and headphones SUCK!!! But, on the Compaq netbook my little brother just got and my mom's Dell, it works just fine... A half hour on the phone with Logitech has determined that the hardware for the headset is indeed NOT faulty. It is a problem with my OS. note - by sucks I mean the audio is low, garbled, staticy, has feedback, etc. Not what you would expect from a 50 dollar headset. I tested the mic with Ventrilo and my Realtek AvRack program to record, played back in Ventrilo and AvRack, also played iTunes music through it, and Windows system sounds sound just as bad. The headset does NOT come with its own drivers; it uses generic USB Audio drivers. After some searching... I found a usbaudio.sys on the internet for XP, and replaced mine with that. Still, no improvement Does anybody have any ideas on what the problem could be? My mom said that maybe my Xbox 360 wired headset I use with my pc (through the 360 controller) has the same problem now, but it doesn't; I suspect it is because the 360 headset has its own drivers through the controller. I think it is a driver issue, or possibly a codec issue of some sorts. So, if anybody has some quick ideas on what to try before, oh I don't know, around 11 am Eastern Time, let me know. I will check back here many times before then. If not, Imma just reinstall Windows lol.
