You can go into the properties of the microphone and disable or fine tune to eliminate the feedback. If all else fails reinstall the driver.
Good first step.

This is called feedback. The audio output from the other radio is feeding back through your microphone. Turn the volume down on the radio at a comfortable listening level, and do not transmit when in close proximity. If they can hear you speak, you do not need to transmit.

okay going to have a bash at solving this but it's a little hard based on your description. I'm guessing this has Mavricks operating system installed.

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Dictation & Speech, then click Text to Speech.
  2. Select the "Speak selected text when the key is pressed" checkbox. By default, speaking is enabled when you press Option-Esc. To choose a different key, click Change Key, press one or more modifier keys (Command, Shift, Option, or Control) together with another key, then click OK.

  3. To have your Mac start speaking, press the specified key. To stop the speaking, press the key again. If text is selected when you press the key, the selected text is spoken. Otherwise, available text items in the current window are spoken; for example, if Mail is the current window, an email message is read. If no text items are available, you hear a beep.
    So based on what you have described you have already found this option and set the change key to "command" + "e"
    Try rebooting then going to the text to speech option and attempt to set the key combination you want it to be. If this fails to change then try resetting the P-ram which should set it back to the default.

We cant figure out how to get the microphone to work on the band hero for the wii...???


Instructions
  1. Step 1 Plug the adapter into the USB outlet at the top of the Wii. Face the sensor toward where you will play. Boot up the Wii.
  2. Step 2 Press the button on the front of the microphone to sync it up with the Wii; a blue light will confirm that the sync was successful. Do this before or after you boot up the Wii, but before you select the video game you want to play.
  3. Step 3 Turn on the Wii and insert a microphone-usable game.
  4. Step 4 Speak. Use the microphone to choose commands (Wii Speak) or talk to friends over the Wi-Fi network (Animal Crossing). Stay in the range of the adapter, which is 3' to 9'.
Ps dont forget to rate me here in fixya,

Thanks guys

Audio feedis crossing with my speaker feed with and without the microphone plugged in.


Your mic still picks up sound when it's unplugged ?
As far as the other prob goes that sounds like howl round ( feedback ), mute the mic when not talking through it or get a mic with a cardioid polar response pattern ( just ask for a cardioid mic, can get a hypercardioid or supercardioid too but a cardioid would be best for your application, point the mic right at your speaking position with the back of the mic pointing at the speakers wich ideally should be behind the mic, this will help cancel out their sound, puting a limiter on the mic and setting it where it only starts picking up sound when you talk directly into it will help too, but the sure fire way to solve the prob is to mute the mic when not speaking into it. What you definitely don't want is an omnidirectional mic, for what you are using a mic for.

How to hear my voice through my usb microphone?


by default the playback of your voice is muted. next to your clock theres the sound speaker icon click on it, you should see microphone somewhere there, if you dont press settings from the toolbar and then properties

then on the playback make sure there is a X on microphone.

then click ok, now check is the microphone muted? unmute it and speak to the microphone you should hear your own voice played back instantly from the speakers.
