Question about Logitech (980240-0403) Microphone

1 Answer

Microphone not working. I can hear people, but they can't hear me

I work from home and this is really, really, annoying. This is like the 3rd logistics USB headset I buy, I bought them from walmart, and I keep having the same problem with them after a couple of months.
For some reason, there is a shortage in the wires or something, because I can hear people, but the microphone isn't working.
It starts having lots of static, and then I can manage to fix that, and then one day it will just completely go out.
I'm tired of buying these darn headsets, and I never keep the freakin' receipts to see if I still have warranty on it still.
Anyone else ever have this problem?

The plugs that they come with are substandard for regular removal.
(pluging in and out) the cable has no adequate strain relief causing the thin
cables inside to break. you will notice that it will crackle and temporarily come on
as you move the cable around near the plug end or where it joins the microphone.

Some times when people are engaged in conversation they play with the wire inadvertantly!!

i hope this has solved your problem.

take care.

I can not get my bluesnow ball microphone to connect with my cubase studio 5

How to use USB device like a USB microphone, or USB guitar Cable in Cubase
This was a frustrating problem for me and I found most forums did not really help
After hours of annoyance I finally figured it out and it's a very easy and quick fix.

1.Download free ASIO4ALL 2.8 here and then restart cubase
2.Click Devices and Open Device Setup
3Click Vst Audiobay and Change the Master ASIO Driver to ASIO4ALL v2
4.Underneath Vst AudioBay Click ASIO4ALL and Click Control Panel
highlight All devices you wish to use and Enable them.
5.Still in Device Setup hit VST Inputs and check to make sure all Devices are there
6.Exit Device Setup and under the Devices open VST connections
Click add bus, and Add Busses.
Your Sound Device should be the first Bus that pulls up
and the other busses will automatically be whatever the USB Devices you enabled were.
7.Last thing and very important, when you open up a new Audio track Right click where it shows Stereo
in. Your usb devices will start at stereo in 2 and depending on how many you enabled go
up in numbers from there.
In my particular case I have a Blue Snowball usb mic as my first Device (stereo 2)
and a Usb Guitar Cable interface as my second device (stereo 3)
*If you would like to hear and test your sound prior to playback simply click the monitor
button and unclick it at playback.
That simple, there you go.
This will work, takes and takes less than a minute.

I can hear my voice in my headsets..its very loud..if I blow into the mic..its like an actual live mic

all headsets feature what I think is called side tone. you need to hear a bit of yourself when speaking on a microphone as a bit of communication reassurance. When thew microphone level is up way too loud , that's more than side tone, it's annoyance that's when you get the problem that you've listed. I've seen it on telephone headsets and Mobile Phones but i'm sure it would happen on gaming headsets too...
Good Luck

NO one can hear me, tryed changeing settings

Goto the mixer, select microphone as recording source and set the slider at about 80%, then bring up microsoft sound recorder and hit record. When you speak into the microphone you should see a voiceprint if the microphone is working correctly.

If you do not see a voiceprint, then it may be a faulty microphone.

I bought a GXL2200 and i cant hear my vocals.

The GXL 2200 is a condensor microphone. It needs Phantom power to operate, and get the correct levels for recording. Your lexicon interface should have a button/switch that says +48V phantom power, or something similar. This needs to be enabled before the GXL 2200 will work.
