Logitech x530 hissing noise

Basically i have a 5.1 speaker set (logitech x 530) in my pc... when i turn the speaker volume on the speaker itselelf down or max it makes sum kinda hissing noise... i foned up logitech and they sent me a new pair thinking there is a problem with the speakers... obviously it wasnt because it still continued to happen...i thought well its the motherboard but so to get around this i put the speaker volume to half way and just used to use the system volume to tamper the audio sound....
thing is my speakers... they still make the hissing noise when lowered or maxed.. i have to keep the main speaker volume on half for the hissing to stop its so annoying... can you tel me why this is please... this is happening even when pc is turned off

I had the same problem for the longest time with my set of Logitech 540 5.1 speakers. Turns out the solution was pretty simple. All I did was open the Master Volume controller and mute the Microphone. Hissing went to zero. Sound is great now.

Yes, it is definitely the speakers themselves. Is it an extremely loud hissing noise, or soft and just annoying? most speakers tend to give off a small amount of noise when put on loud volumes. This is especially true of Logitech, because while they are a great company (I personally have their G15 keyboard, MX revolution mouse, and both the Z-680 and Z-5500 speaker models, and love them), they tend to use cheap parts to cut costs. If what you are experiencing is pretty loud, however, you may want to call them up again.

It is most likely either the amplifier itself, or one of the speakers. listen to each speaker independantly- do you hear one in specific making the hissing sound? if so, you found your culprit, and you can call logitech again to fix that problem, telling them which speaker it is. if the sound is being distributed equally, among all 5, then the amplifier is the culprit.

hope this helps.

Guys logitech x530 distorts

Is it connected to a computer or tv, if its computer, check all your equalisers, turn them off would be the best start, if not try sound effects on your computer, it has many different ones like bath room, parking lot all sorts of random ****, anyways turn that off and if you still have a problem message me back. As far as tv goes, try and conect to a different tv, no change? try a different rca cord, could be a shity one. hope this helps.

Logitech x530 surround sound speakers sometimes make noise

Hi Nick
As you talk I remember a spair speakers I have a long time ago, brand Creative 5600, has a bad resistor inside the speaker SB, or board, you also check for bad cable at the back or static.
another thing is your volume control, sometimes if you down a few notch you may ...not feel the hit or beep, but check things first.
good luck

Locate the Audio output on your TV and connect it to ur X530 Audio input. Locate ur Audio output (exa. AUX-OUT, MONITOR OUT, ETC..) on ur Home audio then connect it to ur X530 audio input. Goodluck
