PC-Compatible Turtle Beach headsets with USB amplifiers/transmitters do not require separate USB drivers provided by Turtle Beach to function on a PC.
If the headset uses a USB connection for audio output/input, generic USB drivers for the headset should install automatically. This may take a few minutes; after those drivers are installed, the headset will be available for use in the Sound Settings.
If the headset uses a USB connection for power only, (or connects solely to a headset jack), no drivers will install when the headset is connected. The headset will not be recognized or listed as an individual audio device. Instead, your headset will be listed under the jack/port it is connected to, as, in this case, your PC will only detect that a device is plugged into the headset jack.
Please reference the table below to see if your headset uses the USB only for power/ uses analog connections only—in which case, no drivers will install—or if your headset receives audio through USB—in which case, generic drivers will install. (If your headset is not listed in this table, drivers are not necessary for your headset):
|USB Chat/Audio Interface||USB for Power and/or Analog Only|
|When Connected, Generic Drivers Will Install||When Connected, No Drivers Will Install|
