  • Microphone problems

    My microphone echoes what I am hearing through my headphones. This is odd because my headphones aren't really loud at all, but everyone can still here what they are saying when my mic is on.

    I need to figure out how to fix this. It bugs me when I hear stuff through other peoples' mics, I can't stand it coming from me as well.

    Does anyone have any idea how this can get fixed? Thanks

        I don't think it's the microphone (unless it's USB or something).

        Do you hear your microphone from your headphones?

          You're using onboard sound. Get a sound card. I actually have my microphone hooked up to my onboard sound and my surround sound exiting through my Creative card. If you're on a laptop, you're probably sunk because you didn't buy an IBM.

            This is actually quite common with a lot of onboard sound devices and it is called feedback loop. Usually means you have a crossover somewhere in the sound electrical parts. Bad sound device pretty much sums it up.

            Your voice playback volume is a different issue involving you hearing your voice, not others hearing theirs.

              They do it for a reason, just not a good reason. Consider yourself lucky it doesn't go both ways.

                It's not a USB.

                I can hear my mic through my headphones. For example, if I scratch the mic, it comes in through my headphones. I use two separate head sets for playing. One has the mic on it, but I don't like using the rest of it because my other headphones work way better and I can hear more.So I have just the mic of one plugged in and a different one plugged in for incoming sound.

                Also, I thought that I had an actual sound card... I could take a look I suppose.

                  Take a picture if you can't tell. We'll know.

                    If you can hear your mic then you need to mute your Voice playback. Which windows are you running?

                        I thought so.

                        Go to your sound options:
                        Start -> Contol Panel -> Sounds and Audio devices.
                        From Device volume press Advanced.

                        Press Options from the top left and select all the boxes under "recording". What you have there is that you have "What U hear" selected, select your Microphone or Line-In2 which ever input you use for your microphone.
                        Then go back to Options and this time select all the boxes under playback. Mute your microphone input from there.

                        Now you cannot hear your microphone from your headphones and others can't hear ingame sounds from your mic.

                        I use setting like that to record my TG videos so that my microphone sounds end up in the video and so that the lads can hear me talking. I just have to turn down the ingame sounds so that they can hear what Im saying (usually this doesn't work :) ).

                            Kebab, you have a very round about way of getting to volume control.

                            I already had microphone selected and my microphone was muted in the playback section.

                              what is the difference in IBM sound and others? I have a T60p...
