Why are my headphones shown as “speakers” on Windows?

The “Speaker” mode allows the JBL QuantumENGINE to receive more than two channels of audio. It also prevents some applications from adding extra signal processing intended for other headphones, which would negatively impact the performance of the JBL QuantumSURROUND or JBL QuantumSPHERE 360 technology.

No sound in my Quantum headphones

Make sure the headset volume control is turned up. Rotate the volume wheel on your headset to increase the volume. If you're using the USB dongle, check that the correct playback device is selected under Control Panel > Sound > Playback. Select the proper playback device, right-click, and select "Set as Default Device". Check the computer volume levels and make sure it is not muted or turned all the way down.

Game-Chat Balance Support
For JBL Quantum 100/200/300 models, they do not offer Game-Chat audio dial function.
To get the Game-Chat dial feature, you need JBL Quantum 400, and up, then you can adjust game-chat balance by rotating the dial-up and down.

For models that support Game-Chat dial, when you rotate the dial, you will feel a notch that indicates 50% game and 50% chat. Or you can see the status on the top bar of the JBL QuantumENGINE.
