Topic: Headphone volume is low.
speng1PRO InfinityMember since 2010
Hello. I purchased 2 sound cards. One tor the main audio and the other for cueing up.

Problem is, although the headphone volume is satisfactory, I need it to be louder. Is there anything I can do to achieve this ? I've played with the settings and all appears to be on max. They are both usb sound cards and my main output volume is lower than the main sound card built in

The sound cards are creative sound blaster play 3.

To be honest, for DJing purposes you really should invest in an audio interface designed for the job.

Using two separate interfaces is never ideal, but something aimed at domestic/consumer use is not going to give you the kind of levels needed for DJing.

maybe with "headphone amplifier" or "Headphones with an amplifier"

Most controllers have built-in headphone amplifiers.
a normal sound card has less of that
