Please make sure that you're running the latest firmware.  You can find installation and download instructions here: LS30/40 Firmware Update

USB Only

Connect the wireless dongle to a USB port on a PC or Mac.  This allows routing of both audio and the microphone via USB.

2.  Right click on the "LucidSound PC Gaming Audio" device and set it to "Default Device"

3.  Right click on the "LucidSound PC Chat Audio" device and set it to "Default Communications Device"

3.  Set the audio output for your chat application to "LucidSound PC Chat Audio" in the application's settings.

This setup will allow the left volume wheel to control game volume and mic monitor level while the right volume wheel will control the chat volume level, just as it does on a console.  

 

USB and Optical

If the computer has optical out, you can route the game audio via PCM stereo to the optical output on the computer.  Then, route the chat application audio to the USB audio device.  This setup will allow the left volume wheel to control game volume and mic monitor level while the right volume wheel will control the chat volume level, just as it does on a console.  Note: the above USB only setup provides the same level of audio quality with an easier setup and less wires.

3.5mm Cable

While the headset is powered OFF, simply connect one end of the 3.5mm chat cable to the headset and the other end to the computer's 3.5mm jack.  If the computer has separate pink/green 3.5mm jacks for audio, a splitter such as the one linked below is required for the microphone to work:
