    I have the same problem. However sometime i can hear myself through the speakers and once i go into sound setting it stops again. It seems that vista driver is making volume go to 0. All drivers state they are working properly

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!

Frustrated :x

I too have a laptop (yes its vista) and same problem. plug the audio jack into the microphone jack 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.

    Sorry the speaker icons will be on the taskbar on the right hand side, probably Realtek HD

I just bought a Logitech Clearchat Stereo Headset and am running Windows XP. The mic is not recognizing while plugged into the front or back plugs. Is there something wrong with my soundcard?

You should go to your Device Manager in the "System" category of the Control panel and see if indeed the driver for your mic is present. It will be listed under "Sound, Video and Gaming devices."

It may be that this person is "messing around" with you, or their speakers are rigged, from my experince, it sounds like your headset is perfectly fine, or your headset microphone switch was toggled on "Off" Msn is just a instant messaging chat, shouldn't have anything to do with your headset.
