Random static noise

I recently purchased a new USB headset. Every so often people that i am talking to will hear a strange static noise coming from my microphone. They describe it as 'hornet sounds' I have tried moving the usb into different ports with no luck. This is a new headset so it cannot be a deterioration problem. Any ways i can fix it? The headset is a Gamdias Eros

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Microphone gives a really boomy distorted sounds on certain chords with an acoustic guitar

Hi Nic

Thats exactly how you do it:) Some times it doesnt matter what you do, you will get strange resonances. Careful EQ is the best way to tone it down. Some guitars will present boominess on certain notes, thats just the way they are. Acoustics rely on this boominess to some degree. Good luck and happy recording. :) Happy to talk more to you about it.

SOURCE: Cannot use microphone.

Hi I have had a similar problem with a Mic, too things to try , first try it on a different appliance to rule out the appliance you are using, if it still doesn't work then it's most likely a short somewhere, tough to repair but worth a shot if you have the patience.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No Sound Coming out my Microphone

This same thing happened to me. All I did was plug the mic into my keyboard, turned the mic volume to max, and turned the mic on. Then, I grabbed the part of the mic where the cord goes in, and started turning it. I turned it left and started hearing noise come out of the mic. I kept on doing this, until sound came out of the mic. I did this, and now the mic works again. Hope this helps!

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


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.

My xbox microphone makes a loud noise at random times which then my friends tell me microphone is making a noise i disconnect but then it comes back soon to make the noise

The wire on your headset could be loose. Every time you move your wire, you could either talk through it clearly or otherwise it will make a static noise.
The only solutions I have for you are:
  1. Buy a new compatible headset
  2. Fix the wire (NOTE: It is difficult)

I have life chat lx-3000 headset that was working fine. I use these on gamer vent server. Recently other players were unable to hear and mentioned they heard static then not me. I recently updated my sound...

My guess it's something in the cabling of this device I think it is cheaper to buy a new headset with the same quality. I think that that best solves your problem.

Ventrilo static weird occurance

First, make sure your mike/headphones are plugged in all the way to the correct jack port.

Then, re-download and install vent.

Also, go to "setup" in vent, then make sure the inbound and outbound are either set higher or lower than the default.

Hope these help, and please rate ^_^

Headset static

Can you explain in more detail? I am not understanding what you mean by "the cord". We are talking about the Plantronics CS70 Wireless Office Headset System correct?

If we are talking about the same system, was it new when you got/bought it? If it was new try contacting Plantronics (yes, I do know it's August now but you can still try) to get it exchanged/repaired under warranty. That being said, I am not sure how long the warranty is or if you even have a receipt. If you don't have a receipt but know that it was purchased at Best Buy, Circuit City or another electronics store that keeps the receipts then get all the information together (date of purchase, purchasers name & phone number, etc) and visit the store to see if they can give you a copy of the receipt to forward to Plantronics.

I used to work at a Best Buy (Store 817 in Paducah, KY) on the Geek Squad. I have helped customers find their receipt and also have seen the Customer Service Reps in the store find the receipt if I can't. They have access to more information on you/your purchase than you could ever imagine and it will be extremely helpful in this quest.

I know I typed an essay but I hope it helps you resolve your issues.
