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.

Weak microphone output in 3 inputs even when all the controls are turned up,echo works and reverb seems ok..what part is having problems?


I wish I knew the make and model of the mic you are writing about. The mention of echoe and reverb makes me think that they are built in to the mic or are you talking about the mixer?

Microphone is not detecting..in my laptop


Check connection - When you enter into a voice chat with friends, each participant should take turns trying to press and hold down the Press to Talk button. Everyone else should see their name turn red when they do that. If you see their names turn red, but don't hear anything, it may be a microphone / speaker problem, or it may be that we have more bugs that we need to fix. If you don't see their name turn red, you are probably having connection problems and that's why it's not working.
· Get the latest version - Please make sure that everyone who is using the voice chat feature has the latest version.
· Check mic and speakers - Check that your microphone works and that your speakers are turned on. Here's how:
* make sure the mic is plugged in correctly.
* adjust the mic properties.
- go to the control panel (start button -- settings -- control panel)
- click on the multimedia icon
- you should see a tab for audio
- make sure that the recording volume is set high.
* you can test your mic. by doing the following.
- Click the Windows Start button, then go to Programs, then Accessories, then Multimedia, then click on Sound Recorder
- A new window called Sound Recorder will pop up. Click on the record button (a red circle), then say

When I talk no one can hear me but I hear them


If your X3's microphone is working, you should be able to hear yourself in the headset when you talk into it. Plug the chat-controller cable in both the headset and the controller, then talk into the X31 mic. Can you hear yourself in the headset? If yes, then the microphone is OK but you probably need a new chat-controller cable. If not, then the microphone may be broken and you should contact Turtle Beach tech support at support@turtlebeach.com.

No, you don't need to do anything more. That should do it. Logitech also has a webcam with a built in mic that would work for you as well.

My Chatmate don't hear me But I can hear him


Check your Microphone Volume. To do that go to All Program > Accessory > Entertainment > Volume Control > Options > Properties > Tick on Mic Volume > OK
Then you will see Volume control uncheck the MUTE and rise up the volume. If this dont fix then you need to check your hardware like your mic.
Best Luck!

My computer is not detecting microphone when making internet phone calls.


Troubleshooting - Can't get voice chat to work.
Here are a few things you should know and check for to get the voice chat to work. · Firewalls - the voice chat feature may not work well behind company firewalls. Even though you can get other features of Yahoo! Messenger to work, the voice chat feature uses separate technology and may not work as well.
· Check connection - When you enter into a voice chat with friends, each participant should take turns trying to press and hold down the Press to Talk button. Everyone else should see their name turn red when they do that. If you see their names turn red, but don't hear anything, it may be a microphone / speaker problem, or it may be that we have more bugs that we need to fix. If you don't see their name turn red, you are probably having connection problems and that's why it's not working.
· Get the latest version - Please make sure that everyone who is using the voice chat feature has the latest version.
· Check mic and speakers - Check that your microphone works and that your speakers are turned on. Here's how:
* make sure the mic is plugged in correctly.
* adjust the mic properties.
- go to the control panel (start button -- settings -- control panel)
- click on the multimedia icon
- you should see a tab for audio
- make sure that the recording volume is set high.
* you can test your mic. by doing the following.
- Click the Windows Start button, then go to Programs, then Accessories, then Multimedia, then click on Sound Recorder
- A new window called Sound Recorder will pop up. Click on the record button (a red circle), then say a few words, then click the stop button (black square).
- Click the play button (black triangle).
If you can hear yourself fine, then your microphone is okay. If you can't hear your voice using Sound Recorder, the voice chat should not work either.

Microphone problem


If the speaker icon is in your system tray (next to your clock), then you can right click on it, then "Open Volume Control" and make sure your Microphone volume is up and that the mute (under microphone) check box is unchecked. If the icon is not there, you will have to check the box to show it in Control Panel > sounds and audio devices... You may have to go to options, then click on advanced controls to adjust the mic..
If that doesn't do it? You could update your audio driver.
Good luck.
