Default Headphone Channels won't split

i just installed my xfi fatality xtreme gamer's drivers off the installation disk and i ran the channel test (test that says "left channel", "right channel"). When i run the test it says left and right channel in both my headsets speakers. Can anyone help me out it would be greatly appreciated.....thanks.

The sound quality seemed to be perfect before i reformatted my computer, but now the sound is just horrible. I'm thinking maybe i was suppose to install a specific audio driver not just for the xfi..

btw the volume on everything is very low..have to turn up headset volume all the way just to be able to hear.. (media players, games, etc.) except creative tests (channel and noise tests) which have their volume set perfectly.

have you tried any updated drivers? that might do it, and just to be sure, are you connecting them to the right connector?
