Windows 7: USB Headset showing as speakers, LOUD!

USB Headset showing as speakers, LOUD!

I bought a Crystal USB headset yesterday, it came with no directions, no disc, no drivers, there's not even a website listed. A few hours searching online didnt provide much help either.

When I plugged it in Win 7 detected it as USB speakers. Even at 1% volume it is LOUD, I had to wear my earphones on my cheeks! I tried playing with the volume mixer, but even setting other applications at 1 didnt help. Those programs (games, etc) that had additional volume control inside the application were able to turn the volume down enough to use, but any additional sounds (system sounds, etc).

Is there an additional USB driver I havent found for Win7? or is there a way to force the OS to recognize the USB as a headset instead of speakers?

Thanks
