Anyone know how to fix it?
Yep. XFi control panel. Place in there where you can select to not have it do that.

Do you have the fancy control panel? With the 3 different modes when you change it animates the change, or the boring one that just has tabs like normal windows properties shit?

Fancy one where it changes when I change modes (ent/gaming, etc).

D2X is a nice choice. If you really wanted to go all out I would go for the Xonar Essence STX.

The Xtremegamer Fatality Pro (what I'm currently using) isn't that bad either. I think it would be a good pair for the AD400's. However, I'd take the D2X over that.

Then go to entertainment mode, and there is a tab called Playback. Switch Mic or Input off (i.e. mute them)

mm the essence looks good hard to decide after reading a heap of reviews on it and the d2x, im to noob

sorta seems the essance is slightly more quality especially in stereo where as the d2x is aimed more at gaming with more decoding stuff.

essance has a build in headphone amp too. seems more aimed at headphones and stereo 2.0 and 2.1 setups sorta makes me wish i got higher end headphones.

i cant decide lol considering i mostly play games and listen to a fair amount of music (just got my ad400's they are good btw) seems both have things on their side

***UPDATE***

The Auzen Forte 7.1 arrived with a fault - gone for RMA, so this will not be added for at least 1-2 weeks at least.
Auzen Xplosion 7.1 is being tested in the mean time (thanx mshagg for the offer to test it out).
Ill add more content shortly too.

***UPDATE***

Not a fan of front panel audio connectors myself. You end up losing the benefit of the EMI shield by making audio travel through the middle of the case on a flimsy wire.

Your right, and a few people mention that in other forums.
As my speakers are not "top notch" and I use them for occasional music a front panel connect (that isnt quite as good as the rear connecter) is fine by me.
Id much rather have both the headphones and speakers permanently plugged in and you only need to select one of the two in the software than fumble around the back of the case to change from one to the other.

Comes down to what you want from a card really.
But the way I see it; for a $220 sound card id expect the option of a front panel connector to be standard.

Finally Auzentech have redeemed themselves over (un)CreAtive and released v1.0 final drivers for the Forte, and new drivers for the Prelude and other cards.

Encoding finally aint broken yay!
