Headset + X-Fi

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello

I just got my Beyer DT770s and have been playing around with them for a while. I am using them with my X-Fi Titanium, and they sound amazing after I tweak all the X-Fi settings and EQ, but not as good if I just plug them into my speaker control module and just use my 5.1 speaker settings.

On the Creative control panel, there's an setting that supposedly switches everything into headphone mode whenever I connect something to the headphone jack, and that's exactly what I need. However, I have no idea on how to make it work. My front panel jack isn't connected to the soundcard, so my only "Headphone jack" is the one in the control module for my speakers, and that isn't recognized as "the" headphone jack by the drivers.

I have also tried to connect the speakers by Toslink while connecting the headphones directly on the back of the card, but that doesn't seem to work very well either.

Any ideas on how I can fix this so that I don't have to change a million settings every time I plug the 770s in?

Thanks
Normandy

what sound mode are you using btw? if the drivers doesnt have any settings to change the speaker setup, use the window's Playback options to change the sound channels. other than that, nothing much i could do.
also for X-Fi cards, it is best if you stayed in the 2.1 channel mode instead of headphones. there is a slight difference in mids and the bass.
