Disconnect the headphone ...close all apps and then run this fixit.

Reboot and check.

That definitely makes it sound like a driver error. I suggest you try removing the drivers and letting Windows 7 install its own anyway.

Click cancel

Try new user account...reboot the computer...login under the new account and connect your headphone and check.


User account might be corrupted.

If possible open sounds from control panel-playback tab ..post the screenshot of playback tab with the mic connected to the computer.

Right click on the communication headphones and set it as default device.

Then play music and check.
