So a couple of days ago my headset started acting strangely, noises that I could only describe as a mixture of static and crackling was playing over the usual sound. The headset in question was a Logitech USB headset 250 which had been working fine for about 6 months, recently the speakers had become loose but still functioned fine, then this problem popped up. I have tried a few things but thought it was just a broken headest, so I got a new one. Same model as the old one had served me well, and this headset has the same damn problem. So it's either a sound issue in which case I need help fixing it, or it's something to do with drivers.
It's a weird thing, when I go to 'Sounds and Audio devices' under control panel, I have two options, Nvidia Nforce Audio and Logitech USB headset, both have the same problem.
Please help, as this is extremely infuriating. Strangely enough the old brick speakers from yonks ago work fine, they are plugged into the usual green port thing, it's not USB.
