Question about Logitech X-230 Computer Speakers

1 Answer


I recently installed the X-230 speakers on to my PC. The audio voices come across as really high pitched as if they are cartoon characters. It reminds of the old days of phonographs when the voices were really high pitched if the record was played at a higher speed. This is running on Windows XP with Foxfire Mozilla. The internet connect is a cable modem at 5 megabytes.

    I checked and found that the sound card driver is the most current one. I'll check to see if there is something else that I can attached the speakers too. Thanks. Is it possible that that internet speed is too much for the speakers?

This is possibly a sound card issue. Your card may itself may need updated drivers. Go into device manager and find your sound card and see if they have any updated drivers from there website. If you happen to have another sound card throw it in and see if it does the same thing. Last but not least is these speakers will work with a MP3 or other device, plug into them and see how it sounds, if your having the same problem with lets say a cd player or mp3 then the speaker itself is faulty.

When i watch Youtube videos, the sound is distorted, the voices are high pitched.

Install a system software for managing the audio controllers.

Make sure it's up to date. Better options are available in it than the classic sound in the OS.

Our Dell computer speakers work but the sound is not normal voices. It's like the voices are animated

It is possible that a setting on your soundcard has the pitch of the voices higher than normal or an effect is turned on that isnt required. Have you tried plugging the speakers into another source to see if it sounds the same?

One of my technics' 1200 turntable's tone gets too high

You can try adjusting the pitch's gain, which is located on the pitch control circuit board. Only problem is that you'll have to take apart your turntable in order to get to that section (its on the bottom).

If that does not work, your pitch might be bad, or one of the main circuit drive IC's might be bad.

Hope this helps some.

When listening to podcasts the voices sound weird

Try updating the drivers for the soundcard. The pitch change could be a sampling rate error.
