Aloha all.. I've just bought a Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headset, and got it working, but then I get buzzing etc through the headset.. I looked at the FAQ on the Razer website, and found this:
I can hear a slight buzzing or hissing sound through my Razer Tiamat 7.1 when not playing any audio, how can I solve this?
The buzzing sound you are hearing is caused by the USB connection within computer systems that have a grounding issue and not due to the Razer Tiamat headset. Some USB ports will cause this so we recommend switching the USB cable to a different USB port on your rig. If all your USB ports show the same buzzing sound, you may need to purchase an AC to USB converter (sold separately). On laptops the buzzing sound may be slightly louder because of the way the USB ports are connected internally.
Please note, If you turn up the volume of the Razer Tiamat 7.1 to higher levels and have no audio playing you may still hear some hissing. Unless it is abnormally loud and still audible when audio is played through the headset, this would be considered normal and you will notice this sound when using any high quality analog headset that is capable of reproducing these higher frequencies.
I tried using an AC to USB Converter and still came through.. I'm using a Creative Sound Blaster X – Fi Titanium FATAL1TY Sound Card.. Any ideas how I can sort it out?? Thanx in advance..
Seems simple enough. Your posts states the buzzing only occurs using he on-board sound. That would suggest the headphones work just fine, since they have no buzzing using the sound-card. Simple fix, use the sound-card
Yeah, I was going to use on board as it's 7.1 compatible.. Working fine on sound card, just hear everything from room coming through on headset, defeats purpose a little.. LOL, especially playing Black Ops 2..
I have the same problem here. I hear significant hissing when i plug it in. It does not matter if it is plugged into A/C or USB (note: it is not connected to a PC otherwise).
Is it right that you do NOT hear any hissing when it is plugged into a high quality sound card?
If that is the case I will buy a proper sound card. Thanks for letting me know in advance!
