In case you're using udev, the /dev folder is created dynamically, so
your change won't survive a reboot. 

Check the file permissions of the nodes again and see which group
ownership they have (most probably 'audio').

Then run 'sudo useradd -G <group> <youruser>'. Log out and back in again
to make this change effective. To check wheter it worked, type 'id' to
find out which groups your user is a member of.
