I'm trying to get sound on Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for the PC, however it won't work

Here is the background. The sound worked perfectly fine about two days ago. I had a few friends over, and decided to plug in my loudspeakers rather than my headphones. I set that up, and then play the game, audio is working fine. After they leave I use my headphones again without any issue.

Today however, using my headphones I tried to play the game but alas had no sound. I restarted my computer, and tried again, still no sound on my headphones. I plug in my loudspeakers, set them as default, and then start the game, and I get sound coming through my speakers. I then close the game, unplug the speakers, and reopen, but there is no sound on my headphones. I also tried to set them as default and restart again.

  • What are the equivalent PC keyboard keys and mouse buttons of the Xbox 360 game controller buttons shown on the screen?
  • What are all the cheats in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
  • Can I increase the number of allowed saves?
  • Activate the crystal from far
  • Is Braid on PS3/PC different in any way? Is there a definitive choice?
  • Can I use a game controller to play Diablo 3?
  • TL;DR
    My Dark Souls was working good on my headphones till I played it w/ speakers, now it will only work on my speakers.

    I have generic speakers and Razer Kraken 7.1 Headphones.

    Generic speakers use both a 3.5mm and a USB where Razer is solo USB.

    I’m on Windows 8.1, playing Dark souls Prepare to Die Edition from Steam.

  • How to change the FoV?
  • HUD is missing in Battlefield 3?
  • How do I set up Braid to use a gamepad on PC?
  • How to make my follower to wear same type of armor as her default, but improved?
  • GTA V for PC exited unexpectedly
  • Can I use a game controller to play Diablo 3?

    After a reinstall, I believe I went into task manager and closed Kraken APO Sys Audio Launcher and that fixed the issue.
