When connecting my headphone to my pc and the LIN OUT JACK on the pc....even with the volume turned to highest...the actual sound through the headphones is only fairly moderate....any suggestions please ??

'Line out' is not amplified. It is to connect to speakers with a built-in amplifier. Is there a 'Speaker out' socket?

I have connected to my pc Creative 5.1 speakers. Can I connect my headfones to the 'output' from there as thats amplified ?? However there are 5 connectors going to the speakers...which one would I use for headfomes ??

How many sound outputs have you got, and what are they labelled?

  RKMonty 15:22 01 Oct 2005

The outputs from Creative speaker (amplifier ?) are labelled....left and right front, left and right rear and a centre speaker. Please let me know if you need further info

The LINE OUT is the connection that i connected the heafones to on my my pc (from the sound card ?)...back of the pc

Is there a green socket anywhere-that's the usual colour for headphone/speaker jacks...as already mentioned the line out is not always great for headphones...

  RKMonty 20:54 01 Oct 2005

yes thats the one i used the green one.....from the back of the pc and the sound was not very loud....wondered if I should connect to the Creative speaker (amplifer) box thats where my speaker cables go into at present...

Check if the headphones have its own volume control. If they do, try increasing its volume. G

The headfones have no inline volume control...
