    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Sound Coming From Speakers instead of Headset :p

    Sound coming through the speakers and headset

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your query to Microsoft forum, I will certainly help you with this.

    I would like to know;

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • What is the make ands model of your headset?
    • Did you check the issue with another headset?
    This issue could occur due to incompatible, outdated or corrupted device drivers. Let’s try to follow these methods below which can help us resolving this issue.

    Method 1: Run the troubleshooters

    Step 1: Use the hardware troubleshooter to fix the issue

    The Hardware Troubleshooter is an automated tool which will check the hardware connected to the computer for any known issues with it and provides the details and on how to fix them. Follow these steps and run the troubleshooter.

    Connect the headset and follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key to get the Start menu.
    • Type Troubleshooting in the search box right up corner and hit enter.
    • Click on Troubleshooting tab.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner.
    • Select the Hardware and Device options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the Hardware and Device Troubleshooter.
    Step 2: Run audio troubleshooter.

    You might be able to solve some problems by running a troubleshooter that will automatically fix some common issues with audio.

    Follow the steps to run the troubleshooter:

    • Press Windows key on your keyboard.
    • Type Troubleshooting and click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Click on view all (on the left).
    • Select Playing Audio troubleshooter.
    • Follow the prompted steps to troubleshoot this issue.
    If the issue persists, follow method 2.

    Method 2: Update sound/audio adapter driver.

    Step 1: Check for the latest driver update through Windows Updates.

    • At the Start screen, type Windows Update.
    • Click or tap Settings on the right side of the screen, and then select Install optional updates from the left results.
    • When the Windows Update control panel opens, click on Check for Updates on the top left corner to receive a fresh list of updates.
    If this doesn't help, proceed with step 2.

    Step 2: Uninstall and reinstall the audio drivers

    I would also suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the latest audio drivers, refer the Microsoft help article below:

    Fix sound problems windows 10 sound

    If the issue persists, follow method 3.

    Method 3: Check in compatibility mode.

    Download the drivers from the Manufacture and follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    a. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.

    b. Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘properties’.

    c. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation.

    d. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists

    Refer: Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows (Steps
    applies to Windows 10)

    Hope this information is helpful. If the issue still persists, please post back for further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.

    Good surround sound headset

    I appreciate it I was more looking to see if anyone knows something that can fit my bill in that budget. Trust me I know all about the $300 range and even considered audio technica m50x with a condenser mic *Stick Out Tongue Sound Coming From Speakers instead of Headset :p
