HOW TO: Sound over speakers and headset together with CREATIVE Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium?

Hi All,

I've got a hold of the mentioned soundcard yesterday. Drivers were downloaded from Creative's site, installed, everything went fine. Mic is working, speakers as well but it seems my PC is unable to detect my headset when plugged into the soundcard.

When I plug them into the audio jack where speakers are currently in they work fine. Is there a way to "divide" sound as I did with Realtek before? As I'm sure you all all aware, Realtek is able to detect audio devices when plugged into the PC and to have me choose the output but I can't seem to find that option with SB.

Is there a way to make this happen with? I did not manage to find any useful settings in Creative Audio Control Panel.


What I'm currently working with:

OS: Win 7 64
Headset: Steelseries Syberia V2
Speakers: AL ATP 3

Thanks guys.

  1. It should work that way on the Creative also. I know on my Sound Blaster Z it does if I plug my headphones into the headphone jack it shuts my speaker's off and the sound goes to my headphones.

    If you want the sound to come out of your speakers and the headphones you can get a 3.5 Y adapter and plug the speakers and headphone's into it and the other end into the sound card that would split the output to both.
  2. That thought did cross my mind but I guess the signal would be rather weakened, will it not? Will test that later today but I don't think it could be a permanent solution. I'll get back to you as soon as I get the time to test this option but from my humble experience with integrated sound cards, signal strength will be severed half.

    Thanks for replying mate.
