Glitchy Logitech C-140 Speakers

The problem is that with these:

new speakers I got, I can't use the Generic or most of the other environment sounds here: click here, because the speakers then sound really grainy/glitchy. Is there any way I can change the environment without getting these glitchy side-effects? The None> makes the music sound so plain.

I can't find the speakers I'm looking for to download the drivers, here:

Appreciate any help you could give. Thanks.

So I guess it also happens when you use the Realtek equaliser?

Have you tried with another media player? I sometimes find a similar problem to yours when I use Windows Media Player with it's equaliser on/tweaked.

Another reason I can think of is that those speakers aren't powerful enough to handle the 'tweaked' sound, or even extremes of highs & lows. Try to swap with another set if possible to rule them out.

Btw, speakers don't need drivers to function - it's the soundcard that does. Check if you have the latest. If not, download the latest, install them, reboot & see if it makes a difference. G

I tried the same song on iTunes, and it still sounded glitchy, but slightly less.

There must be some options in Windows Media Player for me to change something to help this? Or where would I download a better sound card?

Disable WMP/iTunes equalisers if they're on, & try again.

If above is no help, visit your motherboard manufacturer's website, download the latest audio drivers from there & install them (if you need help, post the motherboard make & model number when you reply).

The very latest Realtek HD audio drivers can be found at click here, but Realtek themselves recommend getting them from the motherboard manufacturer. G

I've got the same speakers as those and I am using the realtek sound system. I have mine set to room and they sound really great. Try the same setting.

Crossbow, I can't find anything on equalisers. XD

Grandalph, At that setting they still sound glitchy. =(

Any help, please?

I also have the same speakers.

Using the Realtek Sound Man control panel's equaliser, all the various sound effects can be clearly discerned.

However, I keep it on None (i.e. flat) as I detest unnecessary changes to a sound input (goes back to hi-fi hobby). The speakers themselves have the bass set to flat (it does tend to alter the sound too much).

In Windows, the equaliser can be found via View>Enhancements>Graphic Equaliser.

Is the fact that your Karaoke setting is at 40 anything to do with your problem?
