Question about Logitech X-230 Computer Speakers

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers

I have my X-230 speakers plugged into my TV/video setup. Everything works fine, but when I plug my headphones into the speakers the volume is fixed and can not be changed up or down. Is this because the speakers are designed for computer use and for computer-style volume control? Is there any way of changing the volume through the TV/video system?

    Thanx peacepeace



    I'll try the TV menu suggestion to see what happens. Your first comment is disturbing, though - what the hell is the point of a manufacturer providing a headphone socket if we can't change the volume settings? If it's a legal problem, maybe the headphone manufacturers can lean on the speaker manufacturers to come up with a usable compromise. Just a thought.

I'm sitting here with an open/disassembled pair of X-230 speakers... solution?


None. The audio input level received from input [in this case - your TV] passed to the headphone "port" unmodified. In other words, once you plug in the headphones, it automatically circumvents the Audio Amplifier [located in SubWoofer box], thus giving you the original audio level output on your headphones. Once you unplug the headphones, the Amplifier kicks in again and supplies your speakers with boosted audio signal.

Why is this the case?

Believe it or not, this is actually a feature, not a fault: the original input level of audio is in # MOST CASES # enough to power the standard pair of headphones. If you connected the "lowly" headphones to the mighty-in-comparison AMP, headphones would most likely end being damaged or stop working completely.

Solution:

The ONLY "solution" you can try is boosting or maxing out the volume on your TV [using its controls], which would give you higher level of input audio, thus higher volume on your Headphones.

Hi FOG-57
Happy HOlidays!
well, if volume is fixed, you have to see if in the control program for sound, you can disable and use the headphone sound program in windows.
good luck

I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.

Internal speakers won't turn off when external audio is connected


Normally , you would expect the TV sound to stop when headphones are plugged in. Obviously not in this case. If you have a set of headphones, try them and see if the TV still has speakers on. If it does, then there may be a setting on the setup of the TV to get headphones to work. If the TV speakers stop, then I would think that the Logitech are not compatible with the TV. The only other thing would be is to get into the TV and disconnect the TV,s own speakers. If the wires are soldered on and not terminal connected, carefully cut 1 of the wires off near the speaker. If 1 wire is cut, the speaker wont work. Make sure both the TV and the additional speakers (If they have their own power supply) you are using are unplugged from the power before you go doing this...!

Plug the green lead on the speakers into the headphone socket on the television. You may need to go into the menu to turn up the headphone output. Turn it to 70% on the TV, then use the volume control on the speakers

No sound from speakers. Everything else OK.


If headphones work then so does the amplifier. When did this problem start? From what I can find it almost sounds like it thinks you have headphones plugged in, which would disable the speakers.
