    First off,this is my first post ever on this forum ( yay ) and i'm not too up to date with technology and the terminology that goes with it so you will most likely have to break some things down as simply as possible for me.

    So basically i just bought a new set of logitech x-530 speakers which are amazing and all except for this one tiny problem.

    Whenever i connect ANY pair of headphones or earbuds or w.e into it's headphone jack i can hear the sound just fine but i cannot control the volume using the dial.Basically it's like they are connected just fine but only to the extent that i can only hear sound but not control it.

    (My own mind told me to first off try and update my sound drivers but you see i don't quite know how to do that ,i let the thing search for any available updates on its own but it always says the drivers are up to date which i don't really believe.)

    Help would be appreciated.

    Are you sure the volume control for the speakers is suppose to control the headphones and not just the speakers?
    Does it work to control the speaker volume?
    If it is suppose to control the headphone volume as well then its going to be a hardware problem with the volume control dial or something else in the speakers and not anything on the PC, so updating the drivers isn't going to help. Once you plug the headphones and use the dial on the speakers the computer gives up the control - you can still control the master volume on the PC but the dial should work independently.

    You can either try contacting Logitech for support to find out if your set is broken or wait for someone with the same or similar set that knows if the dial can control the headphone volume as well.

    Well logic told me that when there is an image of a pair of headphones on it then obviously it should control those as well once i plug them in : P. (besides,one would figure a pair of modern speakers could control the headphones volume just as much as regular volume)
    I don't think it's a hardware problem because the dial works just fine without the headphones plugged in.
