I just purchase one of those generic 5.1 USB sounds for like $4 off ebay. The previous one I had worked fine and had very few issues but i bent the body and detached the soldered leads from the circuit board (i might repair it). anyways the replacement I bought is incredibly loud and has a very noticeable hiss. I literally have the OS (Win7) volume set at 1 and its incredibly loud and even WORSE when i turn on loudness correction. before i chalk this up to me being an intolerable cheap ass, is there anything I can do to remedy this problem?

Ask the seller if you can exchange it for a new one or return it and buy a proper one you cheap ass (not intended for insulting you).

Yes it does, but its incredibly loud (even at 1/100 volume) and it hisses. The hissing stops when the sound stops

Does the device have a separate volume control?

Does it do the same with other computers or laptops?

No it doesn't have a separate volume control and it the problems do occur with other pcs.

I think it is most likely faulty, its only $4 but tell the seller that it doesn't work properly and ask for a new one, its less hassle to get a new one than spending a few hours troubleshooting.

You could also try wriggling the connectors about and see if that does anything..
Or try a different piece of audio equipment on the device (like another pair of speakers or headphones).
