any headset i connect to my pc is unable to play audio through the headphones option in sounds preferences, unless the mic is disabled. if i select headset as the default device, i can have audio and input, but the audio quality is terrible. i have tried reinstalling windows and realtek stereomix and i cant get it to work.
