    Hi, I recently got a Logitech G433 Gaming Headset, and to my surprise, when I plugged it in, sound was only being played through the left cup. I went through the sound settings and saw that the headset was being labelled and treated as "Speakers", instead of "Headset" or "Headphones". So basically Windows 10 thinks that my headset is a speaker. How do I change the type to headphones? When I click the "Configure" button, all it does is give me options for DTS 7.1 surround sound. Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Headphone microphone not working.


    Hi Salvyar. Welcome to the TenForums @Salvyar

    For what ever reason your Headset is not being detected as a Headset. Headphones are speakers. You are not being presented with an option for Headset, you are being offered speakers (Headphones) or MIC.

    Is this headset Windows 10 compatible?

    I see a gear in your upper left, is there anything within it to select a Headset? Same question with the wrench lower right.

    Turtle Beach headset working either as headphones or microphone.


    Hi everyone,
    I'm having a slight issue with my turtle beach xo four stealths on my new pc. Before on my laptop, I simply plugged the 3.5mm jack into the headphone port and they acted as both headphones and windows recognized them as an input device also. However now on my new pc build, I have a headphone and a microphone jack and they work separate from each other. This is a pain as I'm trying to stream with OBS and I can either have a mic or my headphones not both like I used to have. Also on a side note, when I plug the headphones into the microphone jack the sound is super quiet with loads of background noise. These are designed for an Xbox one controller and work flawlessly on Xbox with clear sound etc but on the new pc, they are awful!

    Edit: Just found that whenever I plug the headset in as a mic or any earphones or headset windows thinks the earpiece or speakers are the microphones which accounts for the bad audio quality. Now is the question of why in hell does windows think the speakers are microphones New headset/headphones are being treated as "Speakers" by Windows 10 - and the microphone... :)

    Any help is appreciated!

    Windows 10 treating microphone as speakers

    I have a CAD u1 usb microphone that worked fine for months on my machine. Suddenly it is being treated as "speakers" by Windows 10. I have tried uninstalling the drivers, updating the drivers, anything I could think of. Every time I plug it back in,
    it's listed as "C-Media USB Sound Device" with the Speakers label in Output Devices.

    I can't find any drivers at all from the manufacturer website.
