PX22 - PC/Mac Setup Instructions

To use your PX22 on a PC/Mac, you must connect BOTH the in-line amplifier's black 3.5 mm plug to a Headphone or Stereo Jack, and its USB plug to a USB Port on your PC, then properly set your Playback and Recording Devices Settings in Windows. 


PX22 PC / Mac Setup

1)  Make sure the headset's 3.5 mm plug is connected securely to the headphone jack in the in-line amplifier.

2)  Connect the in-line amplifier's black 3.5 mm plug to your PC's green Line Out jack (or headphones jack). 

3)  Connect the in-line amplifier's USB plug to an open USB port on your PC / Mac.


PX22 Windows Settings

1)  In Windows 7, go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Playback tab.

2) Right-click either the Speakers or Headphone output (name varies, but it's typically labeled "Realtek High Definition Audio") and choose "Set as Default Device".

NOTE:  Make sure your default Playback device is NOT set to "Turtle Beach PX22". If your default Playback device is set to "Turtle Beach PX22", then the Chat dial will control everything and the Game, Bass, and Treble dials will control nothing. You may also experience audio drop-outs.

3)  Next, click the Recording tab. Right-click Turtle Beach PX22 and select "Set as Default Device". Right-click Turtle Beach PX22 again and select "Set as Default Communication Device". 

4)  If you use a chat program such as Skype, Ventrilo, TeamSpeak, etc., in your chat program, set Turtle Beach PX22 as both the input and output device there.

Your headset is now configured for PC use.

NOTE: Our USB headsets use generic Windows USB and audio drivers. It is not necessary and isn't possible to download those Windows drivers separately.


PX22 Mac Settings

1)  Click the Apple Menu and select System Preferences > Sounds.

On the Output tab, select Headphones. NOTE: Here, make sure your Output device is NOT set to "Turtle Beach PX22". If your Output device is set to "Turtle Beach PX22", then the Chat dial will control everything and the Game, Bass, and Treble dials will control nothing.

2)  Next, click the Input tab, and select Turtle Beach PX22.

3)  If you use a chat program such as Skype, Ventrilo, TeamSpeak, etc., in your chat program, set Turtle Beach PX22 as both the input and output device there. 

Your headset is now configured for Mac use.

    Make sure the device you set as default is aligned/connected to the 3.5mm port you are connecting the jack into. Your audio in this setup depends on your PCs physical hardware. Make sure the connection in use is active.
