Q: Logitech Gaming Headset G330

Not sure whether this should be here or int he WIndows section Gaming Headset G330 Logitech as it seems to be linked to my OS Anyway I just got the Logitech Gaming Headset G330 Logitech Gaming Headset G for Christmas ps Merry Christmas all It has two speakers and a boom mic The mic and speakers connect on separate Logitech Gaming Headset G330 stereo jacks which can plug into a regular audio port but also come with a USB dongle to integrate them into just one connection mic headphones USB Using the single headphone cable works great from my back panel audio as well as my iPod Didn t try the mic one However when using the USB dongle on MY pc the mic and headphones SUCK But on the Compaq netbook my little brother just got and my mom s Dell it works just fine A half hour on the phone with Logitech has determined that the hardware for the headset is indeed NOT faulty It is a problem with my OS note - by sucks I mean the audio is low garbled staticy has feedback etc Not what you would expect from a dollar headset I tested the mic with Ventrilo and my Realtek AvRack program to record played back in Ventrilo and AvRack also played iTunes music through it and Windows system sounds sound just as bad The headset does NOT come with its own drivers it uses generic USB Audio drivers After some searching I found a usbaudio sys on the internet for XP and replaced mine with that Still no improvement Does anybody have any ideas on what the problem could be My mom said that maybe my Xbox wired headset I use with my pc through the controller has the same problem now but it doesn t I suspect it is because the headset has its own drivers through the controller I think it is a driver issue or possibly a codec issue of some sorts So if anybody has some quick ideas on what to try before oh I don t know around am Eastern Time let me know I will check back here many times before then If not Imma just reinstall Windows lol nbsp

Hello This has been an extremely frustrating week headset g330 gaming Logitech for me all because of logitech headsets week ago I purchased a logitech clear chat pro usb it just stopped working my OS Windows professional bit just stopped recognizing it After reading many articles on google it would have appeared that this is a wide spread issue that occured with usb headsets made by logitech So I returned it payed some extra cash and purchased a Logitech g gaming Logitech g330 gaming headset head set this one had the pink and green adapters and a usb adapter aswell When I got it home the mic just didn t work I have gone through all the sound settings made sure it was un muted boosted set to default etc I also have tried to use it on other computers with no success yet another mic works on this computer so i doubt it is my hardware Does any body know how to perhaps update the generic windows sound reset it to default I have already updated the realtek sound drives to zero success Thank You Peter nbsp

A:Logitech g330 gaming headset

If it don't work on your pc and other pc then I think the problem is with the mic. Updating Realtek driver may go bad if you chosen the bad driver but as you tested it on another pc then the problem may be with the mic itself. I would recommend you to return it and make the seller test it there.

Hello! (First post.)
I have the Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset, and recently it started dropping off sounds from games. When i switch to the speakers, everythings okay. I played with the Windows 7 sound configuration and figured out that it only drops off 1-channel sounds. And to make it weirder, when i take it off my head, it works.

Hi there! I've recently been given a Logitech F710 gaming controller for my computer (a Samsung 305E on Windows 7 - I'm not 100% computer literate so let me know if you need any other specs). Most games work fine - I played Batman: Arkham Origins without any problems. However, many older games, such as Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect, I learned, require me to create a profile using the Logitech Gaming Software.

I downloaded this software from the official site. However, the Logitech Gaming Software does not recognize the controller, even when the Connection Utility also provided on the Logitech website does.

I am not really sure what to do. I have removed and re-downloaded Logitech Gaming Software, but I still cannot do anything with it. I would really appreciate any help, thank you very much.

Hi...I've just bought a Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB headset. I had no problem connecting it up but when I go to try and record music & voice together it doesn't happen. So far I've been able to record voice only & can't get it to record any music at all. Playing music/mp3s is fine & it does have great sound but I need to get voice & music to record together. Is there a way to do this or is it just not possible with this type of headset ??...or is it perhaps a compatibility issue with my sound card (realtek)/computer (vista) ??

Any help would be greatly appreciated...thankyou.

I get the system sound indicating that a USB device has been plugged in,
but the main room speakers remain on - they used to switch off automatically..
I want it set up so that the headphones automatically mute the main speakers when plugged in..
it always used to do this, but after playing around with the settings, this no longer happens..
anybody know how to restore the normal settings?

A:Logitech G35 headset.., OK this is becoming a nuisance..

I've got three UI's for sound on this PC/Mobo

1. the Realtek onboard soundcard
2. Windows7's audio interface
3. Creative X-Fi (which appears to use the Realtek card) and the system doesn't recognise (!)

I want it set up so that the Realtek Hi-Def Audio (speakers) is the default
and the G35 (USB input) switches it out when plugged in, via a USB port
- it really ought to be straightforward..

At the moment the Room Speakers have the Default, which is OK
but I have to manually switch over to the Headphones when they're plugged in
and the sound via the Headphones is garbled when the 5.1 switch is enabled via the phones
although it's fine when the 2.1 stereo switch on the phones is in the "up" position

- what settings do I need to input so that
a. the headphones automatically switch out the speakers
b. get clear 5.1 sound from the G35 Headset

and which UI should I be using for all this, the Win7, or the Realtek interface..

PS: all drivers are up to date, BTW

A:Need some help with Logitech 350 Headset

I've read up a little bit on the usb headsets. It looks like it should be automatically detected by windows and doesn't need any other drivers installed. I would say chances are you a got a dud headset. I try to stay away from e-bay for this reason. You have to trust the seller is selling you something that is working.

I'd say your only option at this point is to verify my theory that they are just broken by trying them on another system. I realize most people don't have 2 computers at their house. However in today's day and age most housholds have a computer. Try it at a friends house on their system. IF you get the same error then you got yourself some crappers. Sorry. Hope you didn't spend too much on them. I would contact the seller about this and if they say tough luck then give he/she a negative feedback.

Ok, I just got a headset for my PC, which was probably a bad move since the headphone quality is crap on my headset but the microphone is excellent. Now.. I was just wondering how I can plug in the USB headset in without it stealing the outgoing audio? I'll include screens of my properties of my audio since everyones is different.

Note: I have the built in audio setup from the ASUS P4C800

Hi there guys
So here's the problem. I've been using this headset for ages with Vista x64 Ultimate without any problems whatsoever. The other day I took my tower apart to install some new hardware I bought on boxing day (Radeon 5770, new PSU, new cpu heatsink) which should have nothing to do with the headset. Now, after it has all been put together again, Vista no longer recognizes what the device (headset) is, and it no longer shows up on my list of playback devices in audio preferences. Logitech has no software for this device on their site.
I had to move my Audigy 2ZS sound card to a different PCI slot to accommodate the new larger gfx card, but I don't think that had anything to do with it as the headset doesn't route through the sound card.
I'm a little lost here

Okay, hey everybody. Yesterday I bought a logitech headset/ microphone. It didnt come with any drivers, its a simple plug and play item. I plug it in (mind you, I have a different sound card, the one that came with my pc broke somehow), and I can hear perfectly, but I cant talk to anybody. I made sure the mic isnt muted, and I made sure the mic was turned on. No luck. I tryed it on my mom's laptop, and it works perfectly. Any tips? I would greatly appreciate it.

1. Device manger is all aces all the way through audio is there.
2. I tested the port with my mouse its fine.
3. My driver tool actually sees the windows default driver
4. My system tool sees the soundcard as well.
5. Tested the headset on a another comp its all aces.
6. and most importantly..I'm not that techy but I can't think of anything else
or where to even start to isolate the problem

When I open Sound/Recording, it tells me "not plugged in". If I plug the headset it in the back of the computer (again plug pink in pink and green in green), then the microphone works, but the sound not comes out of the headset, only on the speakers of the monitor. I tested the headset on the laptop and there it works fine. Anything I can do to make it work, plugging it in the front of my computer?

A:Logitech headset problem

Hope this helps, go to start,programs,accessories,entertainment,volume controll, then click file>>properties>> select input properties>> and then check microphone and click ok. Now go back to regular audio properties, make sure mic is not mute and then raise all the volume. Try to check if its working by trying to record something in the widows sound recorder.(same steps except instead of pressing volume controll u press sound recorder).

Now if this doesnt work, go to control panel, switch to classic mode if using xp ,click on an audio icon ( not the SOUND AND DEVICES ICON!), although that might be the only one u see. But if there is a different icon click it, (in my case its called Realtek HD soud....) now if its like mine, go to: MIXER tab>>> click the two little dots (maybe the options icon on the mic area) and select MICROPHONE BOOSTER. TRY TO FIND THE MIC BOOSTER.

Well hope this wasnt too confusing and that it does help.

I have a very annoying problem with a Logitech 350 headset. Recently I noticed that when the headset is connected, my operating system (Vista Home edition, SP1) volume control slider drops itself to the bottom of it's range. If I left click on the slider, I can lift it and hear my volume through the headphones, but as soon as I let go of the mouse button the slider immediately drops back down and I get no more volume through the headset. If I disconnect the headphones then the slider operates normally. I thought this would be a driver issue, but neither the manufacturer nor Microsoft offer any type of update that I can find. I've tried uninstalling the current driver and then reconnecting the headset, but it did not help. There have been no changes (newly installed software or new updates that I'm aware of) that could have caused the problem.

Thanks all for any help!

I'm having a problem with my headset. Whenever i play a game or listen to music, after about 5-10 minutes the sound turns into gargled crap. Like a choppy, sputtering static noise. I'm using 'Digital Precision Headset' by Logitech. It has worked fine for me on XP, so i don't see what the problem could be. The driver sofware comes with windows, so logitech doesnt offer driver support for it. I did however un-plug/plug-in to see if windows(7) would reinstall the drivers. It did, but i still cant get them to work right. Which sucks for online gamming, because i dont have another mic to use.

If your headset as a single jack plug it is probably incompatible with the socket on the sound card which needs a connection for the mike and another connection for the speaker/earpiece.

On my office laptop I have a Logitech headset from the office (the H390 as far as I can tell) which I've been happily using with Skype, Office Communicator for about a year now.

But after upgrading Skype (which hung several times during upgrade) I can't seem to play audio through the headset anymore, not just in Skype but anywhere in Windows (running Windows 7 SP1).
I'm seeing an audio playback entry called "Communications Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC)" .

If I go to my sound settings in Windows, trying to play any sound will fail ("Failed to play test tone"). The headset is my default playback device, selected, but it still doesn't produce any sound. AFAIK the mic still works.

Does anyone know how I can troubleshoot this problem? Windows' own troubleshooter gives up immediately ("Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem").

So I have external speakers hooked up to an onboard soundcard through 2 headphone jacks and a mic jack. The USB headset is plugged in through a USB slot...

Currently, the issue is that I would like to utilize 2 separate sound outputs on my computer. The speakers for music and movies and other stuff (IE this remaining the default device) and having all ventrilo sounds come out of the earpiece on my headset, and having the mic work properly.

I have set the output device within ventrilo's setup setting to my headset earpiece, and the input device to my headset's microphone. Yet, the only way for ventrilo to utilize these settings correctly is to switch my default audio device to the USB headset. When I would like the default device to remain as the speakers.

I went to control panel and i enabled my headset on playback and recording but no response on counter strike. It only works on microsoft speech recognition but not on sound recorder or steam. WHAT IS GOING ON!?!

I even went to Control Panel > Sounds > Recording > Logitech USB Headset > Properties > Levels > Enable Sound

SO, AFTER I DO THAT, I CLICK OK AND THEN OK AGAIN. So I go back on steam and test out the microphone and it doesn't work so i go back to "LEVELS" and then the sound is disabled AGAIN!

This is universal advice for all gamers, but they never listen:

I have a Logitech g230 Gaming Headset and it only plays sound from one side. It works fine and plays it from both sides when I plug it in to the back panel but I don't want to do that because it means that I would have to switch two cables if I ever wanted to use some speakers that I have. In the front panel it doesn't play sound from the left side. I have checked balance and still doesn't work.

Please Help.

I just bought one of these as I needed a USB headset. Everything i read online was good about it, but i cant use it because everyone i talk to in Ventrillo says I sound 'distorted' with a buzzing sound or something. Some said it was like a fan noise. I have nothing on my desk that makes noise and i tried to look for help online, but logitech's web site was no help and the only things i see on the net are reviews.

Does anyone know what my problem might be? Does this happen often?

P.S. I use Vista home prem 64 bit

I recently bought a Logitech G230 headset for my PC. I plugged it into multiple audio jacks and I still couldn't hear anything coming through the speakers of the headset. It turns out the problem is that Windows isn't recognizing the headphones. I'm currently not at my home, so I don't remember exactly what it said. But it was something along the lines of the headset not being plugged in. What can I do to fix this? I tried plugging it into the front panel 3.5 mm headphone jacks as well as the ones on the back, also, there's no drivers that come with the headset.

Please help ASAP. I really want to use my new headset!

A:Windows 7 Not recognizing Logitech G230 Headset

Try the headset in a different PC, if it acts the same there it suggests the headset is defective.

The only two audio jacks you should be plugging it into is the Headphone jack on the front panel and the GREEN speaker jack on the rear. On the front panel jacks, as this is a custom build do you have the HD Audio connection from the front panel plugged into the motherboard? Has the front panel jacks ever worked?

"Windows" doesn't recognize headphones as a device. The sound chip may recognize it but that's all.

Ok i got a new headset and Logitech USB headset. It is supposed to be a plug and play but for some reason when i tell it to search online for drivers/updates it starts saying "Installing Driver" Then i get the message:

"Windows Found Driver software for your device but encountered and error while trying to install it.

<speaker Picture> USB Audio Device

The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request."

It tells me to contact the manufacturer, i did check the website and found the model, i read about it and it told me that no software needed it was just plug and play. I have a Dell Inspirion E1505 with vista basic.

Can someone please help me? Emailing me would be nice.

Hi guys I'm wondering if any of you know of a workaround to USB Logitech Level Quiet - Headset Too H800 Max Mic Wireless increase this mic's loudness other than just getting a different headset of course or know of some software that will integrate into Windows allowing me to boost the mic The headset doesn't use nor directly interact with my onboard audio hardware software just the basic Windows sound settings in the control panel It's a pretty basic and flimsy headset that Logitech H800 Wireless USB Headset - Max Mic Level Too Quiet doesn't come with any kind of audio software beyond just drivers but it's very comfortable and has decent enough clarity for my needs so I would prefer if I can get the mic working loudly enough I would like to use it for game chatting recording VOIP and making some tutorials but as it is I have to turn down all the other audio levels on my system game volume etc and crank up the volume output to hear the audio at balanced levels Fine tuning the volume levels ahead of time for each specific scenario is above my production budget even though I can lower the volume levels to compensate in post as it where Bit tongue in check there as my setup and aspirations don't involve a professional studio obviously using this headset The only thing I can think of off hand now that I haven't tried is passing the mic audio out and running it back in again to raise the levels with my onboard audio software but that seems pretty sloppy to me and would likely add even more noise than boosting it digitally I'm not sure how plausible that is if I can even get it working with my setup Let me know if you guys have any other ideas I'd appreciate it Thanks

Yesterday I bought the above-named headset to use when playing Team Fortress It connects to my mobo with two separate quot plugs -- one for the headphones and one for the mic I m positive I ve got them in the right jacks Right off Logitech work. Headset, Premium Stereo doesn't mic the bat I noticed that I had Logitech Premium Stereo Headset, mic doesn't work. to turn the volume down substantially from where I had it with my regular Sony headphones -- I was getting tons of high-pitched interference that disappeared when I turned down the volume even though playback still seems to be good and loud The mic however is crap at Logitech Premium Stereo Headset, mic doesn't work. this point When I went to test it in the audio section of the control panel I found that it barely registers on the level meter even when I m speaking at louder than normal volume In properties I brought the mic volume all the way up and made sure that the mute box is not checked The headset comes with its own mic mute switch on the cord and it s open When I went to the voice recorder and did a test what I recorded was a faint high pitched mix of static and electronic squealing -- sort of like the sound a fax machine makes and yes -- it s not unlike the initial interference I was getting on the headphones There was nothing in there that sounded like my voice or words When I went to test my mic in-game before actually playing I found that speaking at the same louder-than-normal volume pushed the level up into the red but I couldn t hear myself over the headphones -- not sure if I was supposed be able to I didn t want to bother starting a game until I can be sure that I m not just going to broadcast hums and squeals I ve been on a bunch of different websites for the past hours and so far nothing I ve found has solved my problem In addition to any suggestions or questions you might have I m wondering Would switching to a USB headset fix this Would installing a rd party soundcard fix this Does this sound like an issue with interference due to cheap cords and connectors on the headset or elsewhere Thanks I m open to taking the headset back to the store this afternoon but I m still holding out hope that they work and there s another way to fix the problem Edit Whoops I should add that I m using XP sp with an ASUS P motherboard and onboard sound Soundmax HD Intel Core processor x nbsp

Hi All,

Just was wondering what people use and why when it comes to gaming headsets.
I have never personally owned a pair (I've always used good sound systems, current one is a Bose Companion 5) But now I've got enough friends playing on PC that have headsets and I recently put my Ultimate Ears Monitors in to play Half-Life and BF3 and the sound was absolutely epic!

I am prepared to spend "up-to" £120, however I would rather more £80.
I was looking into the below:

Does anyone else have a particular brand/Headset they would swear by?

All suggestions welcome as I plan on buying a pair in the next month or two.

A:Which gaming headset to get?

I've also found:

I have around USD 100 to spend on a gaming headset. The characteristics I am looking for in the headset are as follows:

--closed ear
--detachable microphone
--at least 5.1 surround sound (can be virtual)
--USB powered, no need to plug into a wall, unless a [possible] amplifier requires it (better if not needed however)

Any ideas? It would be helpful if you have had any personal experience with the suggestion or know someone who has! Thanks.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I didn't see anywhere more appropriate.

Great positional audio
USB (dont want to need to blow more money on a sound card, and the onboard sound on the MSI P55-GD65 is apperently a bit poor)
I am not concerned with poor audio for music, although it would be nice if it worked well for movies.

I was looking at the Creative Sound Blaster Arena and the Saitek Cyborg 5.1. I was concerned about Creatives notorious driver unreliability, and one review said that quality was atrocious on about 60% of games on Windows 7. Meanwhile the Cyborg 5.1 has got mainly good reviews, but some complain of a buzzing sound and a didgy microphone.

Have I overlooked any good options? Do you have any experience with either of these headsets, or near competitors?

Thank you very much for any help.

A:Trying to get headset to work in gaming

The Microphone jack is the pink/orange one, depends on your color perception I guess.

The standard connections should match up with the color of the plugs: green to green and pink/orange to pink/orange

You may need to use a splitter to plug both the headset sound plug and your speakers into the same jack. This will result in some level loss, but if you've got a good speaker set it won't amount to much. There are alternative ways of plugging both in, but they depend on your Sound card options. A line-out jack might also feed your speakers. Some cards (I have a Turtle-beach) may also have a "multi-jack" which can be configured to do different things -- but if you have that, you have to "read the manual".

I have an Altec mic headset too. There is only a volume control for the headset, and a 3 position switch for the mic as you note. But make sure you do not have the mic on mute in the MIXER controls for your sound card.

Go to the Control Panel and select the speech applet. There is a configuration option there that should tell you whether the mic in signal is being received and how good the signal is.

There also may be an option to test and configure hardware in the Sounds and Multimedia applet for "voice". I have had trouble after using this and had to system restore to get things back the way I wanted it. But you can give it a try with that caveat.

Hi, I'm looking to get a gaming headset since my Dad doesnt want a 5.1 surround sound system. I've looked at the Altec Lansing AHS602i which seemed pretty good to me from the reviews and price, but since it isnt actually true 3d sound, I looked at other, "True 5.1 surround sound" like Turtle Beach Ear Force AK-R8 which seem to sound superior based on reviews (cnet and such), but is twice the cost and need their own sound cards which slows down the computer (Crysis my main game now). My question is, anyone had experience with the simulated 3d sound like from the Altec or is the "True 5.1" headphones the only way to go if i want great sounding games despite the high cost and performance hit? Thanks.

A:Good gaming headset to buy?

Well I think all of those surround sound headsets would be really expensive...I personally just go for a good headset that has good sound and mic output....thats cheap

I am having problems setting up my microphone to work while gaming. I can hear people talking to me but they can not hear me. I can hear myself talking in the microphone. I have windows vista. I am not computer savvy so please forgive. Thank you for help in advance.

A:headset/mic setup for gaming

enter sound recorder in windows vista and try to record something, when you play the file again, can you hear yourself ? Cause usually the microphone works, but is disabled/not configured in-game. If you couldnt hear ureself after playing the file, try to check you have the microphone plugged in the correct spot. Then enter Control Panel, and write down in the serach box " Microphone" and click on " Set up microphone " and follow the steps provided, if that doesnt work , reply back we'll work something out.

Sorry, You cannot use the headset as such , You probably need a TRRS to TRS adapter or cable for using it on PC

I don't know where else to turn so I thought I would make a post here.

Today I bought these headphones.
Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset | Creative Labs Online Store

And they don't work.
When I go into Playback/Recording devices they are not being listed as options, only my regular speakers and mic are being listed. When I plug the Headset in no sound comes through my laptop speakers but it does not come out my headset speakers either.

Some things to know, my computer is Windows 7 64bit And I know the Headphones are not broken. Also, as a reminder, this particular headset plugs into the two Headphone and Mic jacks, not a USB. I have made sure they are plugged into the correct slot. I am on a laptop so I only have the two available jacks. One for Microphone and one for headset.

A:New Gaming Headset not working.

Have you looked in the Creative support pages for anything unique about these headphones and if anything specific you need to do to get them to work - I agree that these should work "out the box" but it seems strange they are not even recognized when you plug them in - do they appear in Device Manager ?

I've been searching for headsets lately because once the night time rolls around I have to shut my surround sound off because my family is sleeping. I've been looking at the astro a30's but after reading reviews I hear that the bass in them is not too good. I preferably like good bass. And the thing I like about them is that the mic is detachable and the headphones can be used with mp3 player.

Anyone have a headset they particularly like or heard good thing about? Let me know!

I will primarily be playing BF3, but would like to use with mp3 player as well (will still look into headsets that arent meant for this)

Hi all. So I was wondering if you guys had any opinions on gaming headsets for pc. My headphone jack for my computer isn't working so I don't think I can use any wired headsets (if I'm wrong on this please let me know). So I was looking into wireless ones, preferably $100 and under. The three I narrowed it down to were the corsair 2100, turtle beach px4 or 5 (from amazon or ebay) and the PDP afterglow kral. Anybody have any opinions on any of these ones or any other ones you would recommend? Thanks for any help on this!

A:Latest Logitech Gaming Software

Yep, and my G303 arrived today and guess what? It's not detected by LGS!
Found this rather interesting answer:
G303 won't show up in LGS or firmware updater - Logitech Forums

So, they release a driver for Windows 10, but somehow Windows 10 doesn't yet support one the devices for which there are updates in that driver?..

Hi there,

I installed Win7 RC 7100 on my gaming rig a couple of months ago. All was well until I got to the Logitech Gaming drivers for my Rumblepad 2 and Force Feedback Racing Wheel. Using Vista x64 drivers my system crashed repeatedly (cant recall exact error message)

The logitech website says that most Vista drivers will not have any issues with Win7, however I am a little apprehensive about reformatting if the problem occurs again.

My questions are:

1. Is anybody else having the same probs?
2. Is there a solution to this?(apart from not installing Win7)

I really liked the the look and feel of Win7 however not being able to use game controllers on my gaming rig sort of defeats the purpose.

Thanks in advance.

did you install the vista driver in compatibility mode?

I'm trying to play Left 4 Dead with my friends, but whenever i press the push to talk button, they hear only the sound of my game (very loud they say) and my voice is very very silent in the background.

I'm using a headset plugged into the front of my computer.

If anyone has a idea what i can do to fix this it would be much appreciated.

Hey guys, basically I ordered one of these a couple days ago and it just won't work for me I don't hear any sound nor am I able to speak to people. However the red light does appear, meaning it does have power. A CD does come with it yet everytime I 'install' the driver nothing actually happens and I am prompted to install it even though I've tried a dozen times. I'm using Windows Vista, 32bit at the moment and I was hoping if you could help me out.

Anything you need to know, I'll be happy to answer.
Any help is appreciated, thanks

Today I went out and bought this headset and a new graphics card. The gfx card is fine but I'm having a little problem with the headset.

It has both a microphone wire and an audio wire (pink and green ones). I have these two sockets on the front of the PC and both sockets along with others on the back of the PC. When I plug it into the front the microphone works but the headphones don't and when I plug it into the back, the headphones work but the microphone doesn't.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm new and I just bought a Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset with mic, and the mic doesn't work! I heard you are supposed to let the computer know you want it analog, and not digital or something, but I don't know how to change all this.
I know very little about computers but the problem with this mic is not that I did not switch it from Mic-off to Mic-on, or that I have the volume of. I'm not a fool.
I just don't know about computers so I need your help cuz you guys know.

Pretty please with sugar on top, help me

A:Fatal1ty Gaming Headset, you guys know this

Bump, also got probs with this. The mic works, but the sound is very unclear, and I can hardly hear my voice(when I record myself). It's alot of buzzing, extremely irritating.

Here you go, a clip, you can hardly hear my voice there. This is so frustrating, have been toying with a lot of settings but it is no go.

Yey, I solved it. Just had to fix the mic-boost settings. See pic.
