  1. I have razer kraken usb, they work on most programs but on some programs (Specifically Music Maker EDM Edition) then the audio transfers to the regular computer speakers instead of my headphones. They're already set as default device and my driver ae up to date, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers to no avail. :/

    Have you tried to configure the software to use the headphone? Maybe it has a different configuration

    I own the Kraken Usb too, and i never experienced such problems as you say, the only time it changes from haedphones to speakers is when i do it from the settings, it doesn't go by itself. Tho i'm not into those music making programs to see how it's working, but i can assure you there's nothing wrong with the headphones soft. Try and see your specific program sound settings and if there's any change there.
  4. I looked into the program and found nothing with configuration. I dug up an old pair of earbuds and they worked just fine (but, of course, the earbuds were jack, not usb.) so, I'm honestly not sure.
  5. yeah, I've never had this problem before - I dug up an old pair of earbuds and they worked just fine (but of course they're jack, not USB). I also went into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Razer\Kraken0502_1.0.6\NahimicSettings\Applications and found no trace of the software whatsoever (Muted or not) same as in Synapse.

    If you download the free program Audioswitch it lets you change your devices. It's a useful tool for these kinds of things. I switch between headphones, speakers, and 2nd monitor speakers with it.

    So next up, I have also experienced audio problems with music programs (magix music maker in my case). As it turns out, some software are audiohogs and mess up all of the audio input devices that are not set to it. It also messed up applications so I couldn't hear anything in my web browser while it was open. This was fine though with my monitor's speakers.

    Basically it's a software + Windows problem. Not specifically Razer since I had the problem with my other USB headphones first. You have to play around with your audio program to get it working properly. I think mixers are more suited for studio headphones (analog jacks) and weren't redesigned or updated for surround gaming headphones.
