I hear myself in my headset!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well i want to pay some games on steam with friends but recently i can't use my headset without hearing myself when i speak, making it extremely annoying and pretty much pointless to use them. They worked fine without this issue until recently and i haven't changed anything about the settings. I use an X-Fi Xtremegamer. Can anyone help?

Pretty much.

Control Panel -> Sound -> Recording Tab -> Right click properties on the mic -> uncheck "Listen to this device"
Missingno.

Where do i have to look? I'm dutch so i don't know of every word what it means. I got the same problem. I got my headset for a few months. But now i hear myself throught it. I use skype, but even when i'm not online on skype i still hear myself in my headset.

HI there - I bought one of these headsets last week - I mostly use it for teamspeak on the PC... i too encountered the "hearing myself" issue... i did find the box to tick to not listen to myself talking the whole time... but it wasn't ticked!! - I ticked it, hit apply, then unticked it again & hey presto - problem fixed.... or so I thought...

Problem is... if I unplug the usb connection, reboot the PC (WIN-7 Ultimate x64) and then plug the headset's USB adaptor back in, the settings revert to to hearing myself (again... the box in Control Panel -> Sound -> Recording Tab is again not ticked, but self listen is active!!

when I check the box & hit apply, i hear myself but with a fraction of a second delay.... VERY off-putting indeed!! then when I un-check the box & apply, its fine...

my issue seems to be repeatable... every time I reboot & then plug the headset, the fold-back or "listen" gets turned on, without the box being checked.

has anyone else had this issue, and resolved it?? or do I send the headset back a PoS? as it is really beginning to upset me that after spending what I consider to be a lot of money, the flipping thing doesn't perform as it should frown.gif

i look forward to hearing from anyone that has a suggestion.

Thanks
Burt

hi - yes - i may be a little 'wonky' in my middle age, but it is repeatable, and I'm assured that I'm not delusional... yet tongue.gif
