Re: Problem with Headset

Make sure that the recording software is installed. Goto start -> control panel -> Sound and audio devices now if you look towards the top, you'll see 5 tabs. We'll be paying attention to "Audio" and "Voice". Both of them should have a "default device" listed in there, if it's greyed out, then it's not working. If you have a Dell, you should have a CD that has all the device drivers located on it. If you don't, you can call dell to have them send you one, or you can look manually on their website for each driver according to the computer type.

Sound Still Play through Speakers when Headset Connected

Most computers will only pair this earpiece as a headset for voice calls. You need to make sure the headset is paired with your device as both a phone headset and media headset. Check your settings on your computer or smartphone to make sure it is paired properly to play media sound.

1. First be sure that you are not sharing ports in the front and back. The green port in the back is the same port thats used as a headphone in the front. The same goes for the pink microphone jack. So be sure only ONE of these (either the front or the back) is in use.
2. If no sound comes from the front jacks, go into "Reaklek HD Audio Manager" and in the "Audio I/O" tab click the little wrench button next to the word "Analog."
3. In this setting, CHECK "Disable Front Panel Jack Detection."
4. Click OK and suddenly you should be hearing audio and recording with your mic from the front jacks.

Hope this helps you guys, Good luck!
