Bad microphone reverb

Im not sure it's called "reverb" but basically, whenever i talk to someone with my mic, everyone can hear what i hear, except 10X louder. This only happens sometimes, other times its just really fuzzy and bad quality. I've used 3 different mics, so it has to be a computer problem.

I use my mic usually for gaming purposes. And im sick of being told "******* YOU MIC SUX NOOBZOR!!"

Ok, i can understand that, I play Eve-Online myself.

If you are using onboard sound, depending on the manufacturer of the bits and pieces that make up the sound portion of the motherboard, will greatly effect the sound quality you get. Also, making sure the microphone is not too close or too far is a big key to it also.

I have found that running whatever chat program that I use at the time to chat with my alliance friends online with, opening an advanced window with sound controlling properties, like you would on the older stereo systems, you have to sometimes tweak the bars a little on each setting to get the right quality.

Also, by chance, if you are spending less than 25$ US standard dollars on a microphone headset unit, you are just getting what you pay for. Sasd to say, but they dont put a whole lot of effort into making good mic's for cheap. Use Playtronics, for one, but expect to spend roughly between 50 to 75 dolalrs on the headset to get a decent quality. For my gaming purposes, i spent 124.99 on mine, but thats because i occasionally use them for other software.

Missing headset Port on Air FLo Controller I want to wire a mic directly

You should probably just send it. They will end up sending you a new one. You poking around in there, you might end up frying the port instead of fixing it. There won't be a diagram because it's a proprietary board. I could figure it out if I had it in front of me, but obviously it's not.

Logitech premium usb headset 350 help me pretty please

If when you talk into your mic you hear yourself from your volume control(windows) and check the box to mute mic. Not for sure this is a fix to your problem but from what you wrote is similar to problem seen with voice chat software.

The only people who are allowed to talk on xbox live (in most games including halo) is someone who has an xbox live account. Guests can't use microphones.

However I believe if you recover a gamertag, and two players who both have xbox live accounts are playing on xbox live (on the same xbox), they can both use microphones. But whenever you see for instance Gskellig(1) on halo, they won't be able to use a mic.
