I currently have a Turtle Beach DX11
for my XBox 360. I really can't give enough praise for how much I love this headset, and how it blew away all my expectations of what a headset could actually sound like.
I learned from the instruction manual
(page 15) that I can hook it up to my PC. I looked on the rear of it and don't have the outlet for the fiber optic audio cable. Since I don't, the manual recommended I just get an adapter such as their own Audio Advantage Micro II
. I order that and hook up my headset up to it. I instantly start hearing "popping" in the headset. I basically fiddle with the wires and it all but goes away.
Windows 7 recognized it and downloaded the driver on its own. Now, I went to make the sound go from speakers to my headset and I didn't see a headset option. I unconnected it all, and reconnect it. This time, it is in my playback devices as "2-speaker audio." I select that, fire up battlefield bad company 2. It was super soft, (yes, I made sure the volume on the DDS and headset were ok), and just sounded very subpar. Did I do something wrong, or is that "sound card' just a pile of crap? Any suggestions/recommendations?
