Logitech ClearChat Pro USB - sound volume is too low

I bought this headset a week ago and I have problems with the sound output. It is too low, at 5/10 of the sound volume meter (WinXP) I can barely hear anything. At full volume it just gets normal. With my previous Koss SB-45 headset I used to set the volume meter at like 2/10 or 3/10 and it was just great - like at 8/10 with this Logitech thing.

What can I try to resolve this issue?

SOURCE: I need a vista driver

no you don't, you need drivers for the vista itself. try reinstall the sound card driver from the pc manufacturer's websight. try on another pc if it works there it is your vista computer. go with step one. if it does not work cal logitech.

You should go to your Device Manager in the "System" category of the Control panel and see if indeed the driver for your mic is present. It will be listed under "Sound, Video and Gaming devices."

SOURCE: ClearChat Pro USB headset asks for driver upon install

  1. (Vista) Confirm your system restore point first. It needs to be prior to what you're going to attempt here. If it has a recent restore point, great, but if not, make a system restore before you do this, in case it doesn't work.
  2. In the Control Panel, click System, Advanced System Settings, click System Protection, and click System Restore.
  3. (Optional) Try updating your usb drivers before trying the final step, reinstalling the Vista Service Pack 2.
  4. Here's how to verify if your USB (drivers) in the Device Manager are up to date.
  5. Open the Control Panel, System, Device Manager.
  6. Open the Universal Serial Bus controllers (usually at the bottom of the device list).
  7. Right-click, on your first USB, Updating Driver Software. It will look for the update or let you know (which may take a bit of time) that it is up to date already. Repeat this process on all the USB devices.
  8. If that doesn't work, try this: plug in your headset, and keep it plugged into the usb.
  9. In your Windows Updates, re-install the Service Pack 2. After Vista reboots your computer and finishes the install, unplug your headset from the USB and then replug it in. What you are likely to see is a Windows message indicating that it sees the software and is installing it (minus the windows pop-up message of "where's the driver disc for it?").
  10. Now the trick is to get the headset to play the microphone through the speakers appropriately!

My headset was working fine but all of a sudden the volume will not stay at the level I turn it up to. It keeps rolling back down to barely any sound coming through. I try to use the button on headset but...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Headset's volume will not stay at the level you turn it up to, and as a result it keeps rolling back down to a lower sound quality. Your volume control button doesn't solve the problem neither. Well, when a problem occurs, you should first troubleshoot where it's coming from. We will use a method called "Process of elimination". Your headset's volume has two controls: one control is on the headset itself, and the other control is located in the sound settings of the device you have your headset plugged into. With this thought in mind, lets go up to the problem explanation above. You said that the volume control attached to the headset didn't make a difference, this means the you can eliminate the hypothesis that it's the volume control causing this. The problem is coming from the earphone portion of the headset. Either a mute setting has been activated, volume is turned down real low or your headset is not the default device to receive sound input. The first part of the investigation is done; now, to get further into the investigation, you will need to connect your headset to your computer. This is where troubleshooting and solving the problem meet. Step-by-Step, I am going to explain to you how to get audio presentations into your headset. This device works with two Windows Operating Systems (Vista and XP) and one Mac Operating System (OS X). If your computer's operating system is Windows, open your Control Panel. Under the Hardware & Sound link, click Manage Audio Devices (for Vista users), and the Sound & Audio Devices link (for XP users). If your coumputer's operating system is Mac OS X, open your System Preferences and click the Sound link. In Windows Vista, click the name of your device, then click Set Default. Click the Properties button and increase the volume slider or unmute the volume if needed. If applicable, click the Apply button, then click OK. If the Apply button is void, just click OK. Click the Recording tab and perform the same procedures as you did before, only difference is that this will make your headset microphone the default recording device. In Windows XP, click the Audio tab and set the headset as the Sound Playback and Recording device. Increase the volume or unmute it if needed. When finished, click the Voice tab and perform the same procedures as you did before. In Mac OS X, click the Input tab and select the headset as the input device. If you still can barely hear anything, increase the volume slider. When finished, click the Output tab and repeat the same steps as before; only thing, you will be making this the sound output device, meaning the sound of your voice will be outputed from the microphone. Increase the volume slider if needed. You should be able to receive sound in and out of your headphones now. If we succeded, through this experience we have: troubleshooted where the problem was coming from, found a way to solve it and fixed the problem!

Thank you and have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.
