My System Specs

Default CM Storm Sirus 5.1 USB only?

I purchased a set of these headphones and was surprised to find that there is NO way to use analog connection to your sound card and use the speaker volume control pod. When connected to your sound card with the included 3.5 analog jacks there is NO way to adjust the volume. I called CM and the tech guy I spoke to was just as surprised as I was. He said they would change thier web site to properly indicate that problem. As it stands right now,if you want the ability to increase or decrease speaker volumes,you MUST go the USB route to use the volume control pod. When the headphones are plugged into the sound card,that's it. No way to use any functions of the sound pod or any software. Go figure. Just a heads up everbody.
