  1. Does Vincent have his computer speakers on. He says he only hears through his ear buds, but maybe it’s not so. Maybe sound is going two places–ear buds and speakers.
    Who knows?

  2. Good idea to disable all other speakers + mics in the system which can be done in control panel / sound / Playback / Recording

    Oftentimes monitors and mics unintuitively come with speakers themselves.
