I have a Logitech USB headset with microphone that I use for gaming. I also have a Soundblaster Audigy card and a nice set of stereo speakers. Unfortunately, when I plug in the headset, it seems to completely bypass the sound card, and audio output is only through the headphones (which sound terrible). I want to know if it is possible to somehow use the USB microphone, along with my external speakers.
Previously, I had a cheap headset with separate 3.5mm plugs for the microphone and the earphone. I plugged in only the mic and just hung it around my neck, listening through the desktop speakers. The mic jack on sol republic my sound card is very twitchy, and I have to jiggle it into just the right position republic headphones for any sound to register. I got the USB headset to hopefully eliminate the hassle, but now I have this new problem. With the USB headphones on, I also cannot hear myself speak during games, which is quite annoying.
The USB headset came with no software or configuration utilities. I ve fiddled around with the Windows "Volume Control" but no sound comes through the speakers popsolrepublic.com as long as the headset is plugged in. Is what I m proposing even possible, or sol republic headphones am I out of luck?
