So two days ago i bought a pair of Siberia v2 USB heat orange headphones (yes i know they're not the greatest for audio but i got them for gaming purposes. Recently I've started to notice some distortion in certain sounds. I've done some audio tests and they all worked fine at every frequency, i tried listening to 192k audio and downloaded some FLAC songs and i didn't really hear any distortion. Most of the distortion came from youtube/soundcloud (although i did get some with the flac audio). I tried disabling the soundcard and still got it. I used my old turtle beaches that hook up to a 3.5mm and at first i didn't hear any distortion but started to notice it a bit later when i payed more attention.
Today i also tried using my uncles laptop which is much much better than mine and still got distortion on the same songs, i did realize that the only thing that completely got rid of the distortion was turning down my computer volume to 60%. Now what my question is, do you guys think this is a defective headset or is it simple that my source/computers fault i'm hearing distortion when computer audio is set to 100%?
