View Full Version : Gaming Headset (Microphone) Issues

07-19-2014, 11:21 PM
Got my G750 less than a month ago. The first thing I tried were my Krakens. They wouldn't work. I could hear, but the mic just wouldn't work. Works fine on my dekstop and MSI laptop. So I read maybe I should have a set with an amp, so here I am with a pair of Turtle Beach Z22's and the same thing. Except now, with the usb connection - not dual 3.5's - 8.1 is just bugging out. It didn't recognize them at all at first. And when it finally did, I just can't disable the webcam mic at all, and there doesn't seem to be any way to swap default mics. So it's always on and picking up audio unless I level it down. But then the Realtech Audio Manager just won't see the mic at all - teamspeak see's it, but for the few minutes it did work, it was stuttery and really bad quality.

What's going on? How do I fix this?

Bumping this up from page 5.

Also, if you [reading] can post what headset you use that actually works, at least if I can't get this issue resolved, I can buy a pair that work.

hi, i dont know where the problem might come from, but i use some cheap 20$ headphones with 3.5mm jack, and i must say the sound out of this machine is stellar, amazing, im planing to buy a better pair soon, but with 3.5mm jack too, to take advantage of the soundcard/amp built in to my JH.

I too wouldn't have the first clue about your problem but I'm using a pair of a astro a50s and they work great, By no means cheap but they do work.

Edit: also I'm using the digital audio out.

Just to clarify, the audio out is fine. It's the mic in that is problematic. The Krakens sound great, but the mic wont go above a whipser and the TB i bought, when the mic did work it stutters and broken up. The Krakens were via 3.5 and the TB were via USB.
