H530 Sound through Speakers NOT Headset - Help

I just purchased the Logitech H530 headset to make calls from my computer.  The sound quality is great!  But, I can only get the sound through my Computer speakers and not the headset itself.


It is more than a bit annoying as everyone can hear what my caller is saying.


I have read many of the posts here, no help that I can find. 


I have read the white paper on setting up USB headsets for Windows.  Closer but still no cigar.


When I go in to my Control Panel > Sound > Manage Audio Device

I see a Green Check next to my speakers, but the speakers are called "2-Logitech USB Headset"

I also see a Green Telephone icon next to the Headset. called "Independent Dual Headphones"


That is about as far as I got before I decided I did not want to go changing things with out asking for help. 


I will have to return these if I can't get the sound out of the ear pieces while on a call.  I really can't have everyone in the office yelling at me because my phone calls are being broadcast though the system speakers.


Help please,

I'm having the same exact problem.  Have had the headphones for about a week - at first they worked great, then I had a system update and the headphones are showing as speakers in my computer's Control Panel.  I've downloaded the troubleshooter, which seemed to have done something but i still can not get sound from IE to play through the headsets.


I'm using Windows 7.


1/20/11 - an update on this.  I found that if I open Device and Printers and ran the troubleshooter for the headsets I could get them working.  The device still shows as a speaker in my sounds panel but the troubleshooter got the speakers working.  It craps out from time to time - i just rerun the troubleshooter again and things work again.  Interesting note - the troubleshooter completes and says that it could not find any problems but this does solve the problem.
