My headset is playing sound that should only be playing on the left side on both left and right sides of the headset, but sound that's coming from the right is on the right side.

It's also odd that when I'm playing Minecraft, all the footsteps and mob sounds are playing on the left side, the ambient sound is playing normally, and when I start up my siren in-game it only plays on the right side. No mater where I look, it doesn't change like my right ear piece is playing what the left and right would hear.

Anyone know whats going on?

Does this fault only happen on the minecraft? What if you play music? – Dave Jul 19 '12 at 12:39
it plays the vocals on the left side and most of the bass I've bin playing minecraft and it works just fine but when i use the usb headset – Faulkon Jul 19 '12 at 13:09
Sorry for another question, can you test on 'normal jack' headphones (instead of USB)? – Dave Jul 19 '12 at 13:11
yeah it works fine with a jack headset – Faulkon Jul 19 '12 at 13:16
And any fault shown in device manager? Do you have another USB headphone to test? Can you make sure your headset drivers are up to date, as is the chip-set on board and the audio drivers. – Dave Jul 19 '12 at 13:17
