This headset is pure bad. I have three and none of them worked. The manufacturer has no quality control or post production inspection. To fix the mic problem, open the earphone to which the mic is attached. You\'re likely to find that the mic wires are SHORTED together in a single piece of paper tape. Remove the tape, separate the wires and retape, assuming the tiny thin wires don\'t break in whic case you need to resolder the joins. Had the manufacturer any kind of QC, the faults would have been immediately obvious.
You need power from the transmitter to power this mic. See your mics specs to determine if it needs "Phantom Power"
Perhaps the transmitter doesn't supply power. Condenser mics may not work. Stay with the dynamic type. IMHO
in skype go to tools>options>audio setting make sue the microphone is logitech and the green bars should start moving as you talk. if no logitech appears or the mic is not producing sound. call logitech for warranty info. if the mic is producing sound below is "make a free skype test call" to see if the program is transmitting.
It sounds to me like you have a short in the cable. Power up unit like normal and move the wires at each end of the cable, mic end and connector end, being careful not to move the mic. If you hear popping it's a bad cable. If not, now gently shake the mic, does it pop, then it's your mic's capsule and needs replacement.
I have the same problem. I suspect that this headset is not USB compatible at all. It possibly only uses the USB connection as a source of power (for the vibration effect). This is a problem for me because I wanted to use the headset on a PS3. Saitek don't claim that it works with the PS3, but the claim of USB compatibility is ambiguous and misleading in my opinion.
I had the same problem, but fixed it. All you have to do is: (I have a Dell Laptop) 1. Go to the control panel 2. Go to the sounds, speech and audio devices 3. You are supposed to see the icon that belongs to your sound card (Mine is SigmaTel Audio), click on it 4. Activate the port where the microphone is connected, close 5. Configure your microphone as you normally would 6. It should work
Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices
Click on Voice Tab and make sure the proper device is selected. Click on Volume and make sure levels are appropriate. Lastly, click on Test Hardware and wait until you can speak into the mic to see the voice levels. If you can see the voice levels, then your mic probably works and it is just an issue of configing the COD settings.
