Question: Is there a way to force the generic USB Audio drivers
or the Win 7 Audio system into using a specific device profile?
Reason: I recently purchased a set of older usb headphones with 5.1 capability. But the headphones do not appear to report to the system as headphones. And there are no drivers on the company website for the headphones in question. They just use the generic USB Audio Device drivers.
The issue I am having is that the Audio system is treating the headphones as a set of speakers. With the wrong volume curve, I have to reduce the sound to about 1% and then adjust it in other places like in the game I am playing to make it safe for my hearing.
So that is the situation and the root of my question. I have asked about this in the Audio and Sound section to no avail. So I thought I would try here instead, may be find a way to tinker with the device profile or the registry info. Any thoughts?
