Windows 7: Left and right channels are mixed together

25 Feb 2011   #1

Left and right channels are mixed together

Hello I want extend cable on my CREATIVE HS-800 Fatal1ty Gaming Headset. I used many 3,5mm to 3,5mm M/F extended cables but all times the LEFT and RIGHT channels were mixed together. When I set Only left chanel it play 50% on left and 50% on right...etc. Without extended cable everything is OK. Where is a problem ? Which kind of cable I must use ? Which parameter of cable is important for me ?

Thx for help.

White noise on left speakers/left side of headphone
There's this annoying white noise on my left speakers(Logitech X-540 Speakerset), though I think it's not my speakers that are causing it, but something else, because when I connect my iPod to my speakers there's no white noise. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of this...
