Question about Razer Barracuda HP-1 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

No sound, too.

I got these for Christmas, plugged them in and set all the settings to headphones and absolutely no sound whatsoever came out of them. It's strange because I plugged these into my X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card. I had a set of headphones that plugged into the USB port that wouldn't make any sound after I moved my computer from an apartment to a house, though they used to play months ago. This sounds like the computer has disconnected parts on the inside, but when I use my MP3 player's headphones that only have a green plug that goes into the sound card, they work perfectly.

Re: No sound, too.

Tricky little one this IF your Not careful It will pass you like a speed train Without you noticing.

I also have a pair of Headphones with mic for Christmas, they are of a Usb plug-in type.
I noticed when i plug them in they DON'T respond.
I then messed about with settings/using different ports /making sure they were Found via New hardware install But to No avail.

ONE THING i did notice is that Usually When you plug a NEW device into your computer (hardware) i.e. your Nice new phones
You SHOULD get a sound & a detection of the device.
This dectection is notice by the pc in the bottom right hand corner of the taskbar.
New device found headphones ect....
I found out that my headphones wernt detected UNTIL i turned off my speakers.
Odd? well yes....
as seeing as you'd think ( IF ) youve already been into the settings, found your [phones] set them up using the wizard & the mic as well ( if you have one )
you should be ok.
SOMETIMES however EVEN if you havent STILL got your speakers on. Something strange happens I DON'T know how to explain it but what happens is...

The system detects a sound device like your phones.
It then decides on the spot either to Use them Or NOT bother
(stubbern eh?)
It also decides to Set- certain volume controls (mic (it usually mutes) / Volume is usuall ok but mutes phones & not speakers))
& other misleading configs
So as you can see its a little confused & this doesnt help us...

I DON'T know why it has these funny five minutes but it does.
The pc gets confused somwhere along the way if think mainly its a software conflict thing
You'd think it is an easy task, just pluging in headphones & thats it (Plug & Play) but #Oh No !!! thats Too much to ask'...

As I Said for some reason when i comes to sound, pc's detecing new devices & setting them up correctly 100% Doesnt happen with the best of us...
Now then.... (sorry for the Gibber BUT I HATE this problem)
1st of all...
Make sure your only using 1 sound set-up program like the standard windows one in the control panel (Sound & audio devices)
If you have others like the ones you get with mothboard drivers, unistall them for now (it only confuses your pc)
YOU can install them later if you like but if you do remember to rid the windows 1 or Disable it or leav it set at all defaults.

Jump into the sounds & audio device properties /Via control panel
Speaker settings at the bottom of the first page & go into advanced.
The speaker setup should stay on desktop speakers
Just to make sure go into the next page (performance)
& click on (restore defaults) & click ok
Back onto the first page...
Device volume / Check that mute is NOT ticked & then click on advanced
Check all sliderbars on NOT ticked
Click on options & then properties & tick all boxes. click on ok.
Double check that you have NO boxes ticked on the sliderbar volume control page.
Next goto the audio page
Sound playback device/sound recording device(SHOULD) be set to your headphone set.
If you click on advanced on the sound playback device,the speaker set up should STILL be set up with Speakers.
This is where the problem usually is. (click ok)
open the next page (voice)
Both devices should be set with your headset
Again click the advanced tab & the output should be set with you speakers showing.
If you have a mic
Clcik on volume tab, click on options & advanced controls
Click on option again & the properties
make sure your headphones are set, tick the box for the microphone
Click on playback & make sure all boxes are ticked
Click on ok
& thats it.
Shut down & restat your pc
Oh one more thing Sir please kindly.......
Make sur you have your headset plug in before you do all this....

Many thanks.....

Plugged in, no sound out of them. all sound comes from tablet itself as if headphones are not plugged in. where are volume controls for these hdphnes? how no guidance provided on pkg or in it

Try another set of headphones in the device you are having a problem with. This will eliminate the device being faulty if another set of phones work with it.
Check the jack plug on the "non-working" phones is the same size and design (count the rings) as the working pair.
Try the "non-working" in a different device.

Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.
Read more :
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

There could be a mismatch between the impedance of the headphones and the devices you plug into. In short, the Panasonic headphones may not be intended for the type of listening you are attempting

No sound on spi mp3 player

All it will be is bad soldering to the headphone jack inside the player. If you have a soldering iron you could do it yourself. The problem will however be getting inside the player. If you can't do it yourself, it shouldn't cost too much to have it fixed.

I bought a set of Mitone headphones two days ago and no the left ear piece no longer works. I think it is a relatively expensive set of headphones and therefore think that it would be a quality product....

Are they cordless? If not then plug into another sound source to ensure it is the headphones and not the PC playing up or simply a bad connection into the PC.

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones

It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck
