It sounds as if you have got your inbuilt microphone active and it is amplifying the sound coming from your speakers, try muting the microphone off through your sound or speaker icon normally on your task bar on right hand side, this happened to me when i first installed a web cam and set up the microphone volume. Hope this helps, other than re installing sound card drivers.

How much are hearing aids?

Hearing aids range in cost depending on where you live. In Tennessee they range from $2000-$7000 a pair (people usually one in each ear). The cost usually includes testing, devices, programming by audiologist, warranty for repairs and loss as well as follow up visits to ensure you are satisfied. Entry level hearing aids help you hear in basic situations, mid level price makes hearing aids more "automatic" with noise reduction for difficult situations, premium hearing aids have Bluetooth, ear to ear wireless, and do a better job of categorizing sound( deciding whether the sound is music, speech, noise, car noise, wind etc). A good audiologist will be able to help you choose based on your budget and can easily explain the different styles and features. This is part of the cost, you are paying for their expertise. Most audiologists have a preferred brand, one that they are most comfortable with. I have fit all of the brands and have come to see that each brand has pros and cons. New Hearing aids are no longer simple amplifiers, but they can never replace how the ear and brain processes sound. There is the old adage that you get what you pay for, but always get the return policy in writing. Most professionals give you a trial period outside of the office to see how they work in the real world. Some states have laws that say you can get a full refund within 30 days.

Trouble starting my 2002 toyota echo I turn the key, hear the i believe fuel pump come on but then nothing. Sometimes it fires right but when i turn it off after running it won't restart

When it doesn't start after shutting it off can you still hear the fuel pump come on? The best way to tell is to take the gas cap off and put your ear next to the filler neck while someone turns the key to the on position. If you don't hear it, it may be time for a new one.

I hear echo sound every time i play music/movie and i cant figure out to turn it off "how"

Does it happen with headphones in as well? If not, do you have a built-in-microphone? Sometimes the sound coming of the speakers can be picked up by the microphone, resulting in an echo sound. Make sure that the microphone is off (or test it by covering it up while playing some music), and quit out of any applications that are using it.
If you hear it in the headphones as well, it could be a sound card problem, which means it would need replacing. If you don't hear it in the headphones, but hear it in the speakers and don't have a mic, it's either your speakers, or (more likely) your computer just doesn't get along with whatever software you're using to play movies/music.

Do you have an X1? If so, you should be able to use it with a PC. Try talking into the mic with your X1 connected to the PC. Does it echo there too? If not (and it shouldn't) then you probably only need to replace the chat-controller cable with a new one. Those are available for sale on the Turtle Beach website ( Turtle Beach tech support is

I am not sure of the decible rating but it is recomended that you where eye and ear protection with all power equipment for safety. I do know that the decible rating is high enough to cause hearing damage over time.

Hearing Aid Support

Because every person has a different extent of hearing loss with a different type, this is difficult to answer. Some believe that there are benefits to wearing two aids. Obviously they provide for a more balanced hearing by better directing sound from different areas. Some believe that two aids provide more clarity and allow the user to hear better in noisy locations. A licensed professional or audiologist will best be able to recommend whether one or two aids will work best for you.

Help with Sound

I cannot say directly for your particular model. I will give you a generic answer that can apply to most any computer.

If you hear an echo, look carefuly thorugh the setup for the sound card. Look for anything to do with special effects.

Look for the options or properties that have to do with the sound card that is in the computer. Many of them have special effects capability.

My sound is clear but caller on other end hears a echo of his own voice. HELP?

Its like calling into a radio station going on the air, and having your radio turned up while on the air you will always get an echo. Or at least a delay that other people will hear on their radio. it's the same way, with using a Car Bluetooth because they are hearing their voice coming through the speakers and going back into the microphone and then they hear that and there is your Echo. Unfortunately there is really nothing you can do except for ask them to deal with it :-(
