Description of problem:
I have a USB headset which works great in Windows 7 but not in F15.
If I have the gnome shell volume below about 1/6 of max then no sound is played at all. Above it and sound is really really loud.
If a flash movie in Firefox has its own volume control it's unaffected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in USB headset and set gnome volume control to use it
2. Set volume to below 1/6 of max, no sound
3. Set volume to above 1/6 of max, loud sound
Either loud or no sound plus lower end of the volume control does not work.
Continuous sound volume throughout the volume glider like on Windows.
The headset is a Corsair HS1 USB Headset: http://www.corsair.com/pc-computer-audio/gaming-headsets/gaming-audio-series-hs1-usb-gaming-headset.html
This sounds like hardware exposing incorrect dB information. Something that the USB audio driver probably needs to override in the quirks.
