MANY thanks to those who replied. Here is a follow-up to what's been asked stated so far . . .

I may have to try this on my surround speakers, which do use jacks, but it bothers me if I have to resort to speakers when I depend on a headset/mic setup. Per my own rules, talking on my fleet Teamspeak does not allow game-play on speakers if it would bleed through the mic, even with push-to-talk enabled. I won;t back down on my own rule just because I have an issue and inconvenience others who use my Teamspeak by blasting their ears with phaser fire.

The same happens to me in what I described above. I can turn sound all the way down in game . . . popping still continues. Minimize the game . . . popping still continues. I am glad folks have replied here - I really did think based on forum searches and Google that I was the only one with this issue.

Considering this issue occurs on multiple headsets of multiple makes and designs, I doubt it is the drivers. I always use the latest drivers from each manufacturer. I did check and there is new software from Logitech for the G35, so i am now updated to version 8.46.27. The problem, however, still persists.

Not on a laptop. I am running this on a desktop with the following configration:
  • Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
  • Intel Core i7 Extreme 975 @ 3.33GHz w/Bloomfield 45nm Technology
  • 24.0 GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 801MHz (9-11-11-28)
  • Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital Edition (5040x1050@59Hz) powering three 24" monitors off of an ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 (ATI) with CrossFire Disabled
  • Logitech G35 Headset

Anything you find out and can contribute here would be GREATLY appreciated.

In the steps I took listed above, this is one of the steps that I took (See Step 3). Unless you know of a different way to disable surround, doing so through Windows 7 sound configuration is the official way to do so. Also, it should be noted that I have also tried this and had the same issue with two former headsets, neither of which had surround sound on them. They were just regular USB headsets.
