Question about Logitech Internet Chat Consumer Headset
I used a logitech headset on my window xp box with no problems. I just bought a new computer and if i plug the headset in the front port, I can hear people talk, but no one hears me. If I plug in the back, nothing at all....
Does anyone else have issues hearing their own voice through a headset with Vista?
I recently upgraded both of my machines to Windows Vista Ultimate. Since I've done this, I can no longer hear my voice through my headset (with Softphone). The customers can hear me fine and I can hear them fine, but I cannot hear my own voice - sounds like I'm talking with my hands over my ears. Of course, this is very annoying to say the least. It always worked fine with Windows XP so it has to be a Vista issue?
I have the same problem with different headsets so that's not it. I've tried all the settings within the Softphone and my PC itself and couldn't find anything that would fix it. I've tried Ring Central support and they walked me through several re-installations of the soft phone among many other things with no prevail. I just got off the phone with Microsoft and they told me that hearing my voice through my headphones is not a feature in Vista, LOL! C'mon, you're going to tell me that everyone in this world using a voIP phone and Vista will not hear their voices with a headset?!?! Geesh.....
So I guess I'd like to know if anyone here is using a Softphone with Vista and a headset without problems?
And if someone has any idea how to fix this, I'd LOVE to know!

I too have a laptop (yes its vista) and same problem. plug the audio jack into the microphone jack only.....you will need to speak in thru the earpiece. It works and quality is still good. I then listen to the other person thru laptop speakers or if you want a little privacy you can always revert to using the ol trusty ipod ear phones......cheers

- Right click the speaker icon in the system tray
- Double Click Speakers
- On the Levels TAB scroll until you find the port that your headset is plugged into and mute it.
What a relief!

Either the headset is not supported by Vista, or you need to right click on both speaker icons, normally coloured red and black and in the properties you need to see if your headset is listed as one of the microphone input devices, if you need to make the Logitech headset the default mic and not the windows generic mic. If you do not see it in the properties then it may not be recognised by Vista.
