    Slapback echo in Win 10

    I wasted four hours of my life with Microsoft techs who ultimately tried to blame a pair of Koss headphones, not windows 10. An inert, unpowered pair of headphones cannot (literally, impossible) create a slapback echo unless it's a windows 10 problem. They adjusted settings via remote, so really, is there a real cure? Is this uncureable?

    I'll add, when a windows customer asks for help, you do not attempt to blame their equipment. Apparantly, this slapback echo is all over the internet being a problem with windows 10, I see zero entries for "koss headphones, annoying slapback echo" Can we cure this once and for all? I'll spare the tech's names but I'm annoyed to the point I'd like to make them famous but all I really care about is a cure. My drivers were tested

    Echo Test Won't Connect Need Fix?

    Hello Tom,

    There are a lot of possible causes why you're unable properly use the echo test on your device. This may be an issue with your driver or if you using an application it's needing to be updated. To isolate the issue, we'd like to ask a few questions:

    • Are you using an application like Skype or other social applications?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    • Did you make any changes to your device before experiencing this issue?
    • What's the make and model of your device?

    Meanwhile, if you're using a microphone on Windows 10 desktop. We suggest updating the all of the drivers installed on your computer. To do so, follow steps on this

    We are looking forward to your reply.

    Lone Echo

    I definitely want to play "Lone Echo". Its probably number one on my list. Number two is Gunheart. Currently I can make due with "Echo Arena". I don't want to buy "Lone Echo" right now because its only available through Oculus.

    I would rather buy games from Steam because I am thinking long term and I don't necessarily trust that playing such Oculus titles down the line will be easy. Especially so if my second gen or third gen VR HMD isn't from Oculus,...

    Skype Microphone echo only on 1 Win Pc

    My son has just bought a Blue Snowball microphone. Plugging it into his Pc with Win 10 whenever he used Skype (and it only affects Skype) he has an echo to whoever he talks to.

    The sound is fine in all other sound recording programs he has just not Skype.

    However his brother has the exact same Pc and the Microphone works perfectly on that with Skype, I even tried the Microphone on my own Win 10 Pc and had no issues and even on my Linux Laptop and again no issues.

    The echo problem only seems to exist on the one Pc.

    I have searched and searched the internet for advice and tried many of the various suggestions of checking settings. The Pc is up to date, and from what I can see the sounds settings are all the same as his brothers Pc.

    I'm stumped and hope somebody on here may be able to suggest something else I can check.
