  1. Hey guys,

    I have a nice pair of logitech headphones that cost me 85.00 from best buy here in Canada. I try to play alot of online games with voice talking and people say I sound like i'm echoing or sound like a robot. I've adjusted sound card settings and also settings within the games I play and nothing helps. I can hear other people fine and clear. I've also tried 3 different headsets from logitech and they are all the same way? Can anyone help me out and explain what could be the cause of this. I've looked at updating my sound card drivers but sound blaster has not had an update for them for a long time and the sound card is about 5 years old.

    Thanks

    Mike

    Try this.

    Go to your control panel and double click on sounds and audio devices. Under device volume, click the advanced button. Make sure that the microphone is muted, by ticking the little box. Close the volume slider window and click ok, close control panel.

    See if that helps.

    Regards Howard :)

    ok thanks Howard :) I'll try that when I get home! Is there any chance that I might need a new sound card because mine is so old? I mean they stopped updating the drivers for it?

    At this stage, I doubt it`s a soundcard problem. I think it`s more of a settings problem.

    No N1hawk, sound cards arnt really nessescary... I have a integrated sound card and I have excellent sound, Sound cards are for people who make music / sound effects for games & animations mostly
