Question about Cyber Acoustics AC-201 Consumer Headset

Bad Microphone Feedback / Drowning Backround Sound

Unfortunately I lost the product information about a week ago for this headset, and if I'm correct it has standard Sound and Mic (Green and Pink) Inputs?

Anyways, the headphones work just fine, but whenever I try to use the microphone while playing a game, it seems that all the sound from my room, and what seems like the inside of my computer? - is heard in my headphones and everyone else's in-game. I've listened a bit as well, and it's a combination of Repetitive Delay, Echoing, and cluttered miscellaneous noises.

Is it something with my Sound Card, perhaps?

    Yeah, that's what I figured too, but I've even tried it with everything turned off. What pushes me to believe that it's a sound card issue is exactly that, a repeating delay. Even with every sound source turned off from the room while playing a game, when someone talks or a sound emits from in-game or my computer it has the same exact effect as it would a loud stereo or a loud TV. I use some in-game voice programs and Ventrilo - and once I try to talk and say, I overlap with another person, the users are immediately overwhelmed with that previous person's voice from the message.

It's the fact that people say it loud and so your mic picks it up out of the reciever and plays it again and then the same happens to other people and then it continues on and on. Also it could be doing this because the sound bounces off the Tv if your close to it.

How do I switch off the microphone to stop the speakers feeding back on my laptop. And how to set the levels when I am recording, to stop feedback.


I think it won't be possible to get rid of the feedback and quality will be poor when recording this way. Try software like Audacity and set the audio source to record directly from the sound card. The input device should be set to "Windows WASAPI" for Windows and output set to a loopback device.

Skype not working


Sir,

Click this link for more information........

On a PC with external speakers and also a headset with microphone. Windows XP is configured so that standard audio are external speakers and standard microphone is the headset. Skype is configured to use the headset for audio in and out.

This way one can listen to sound from the PC and from MP3 players through external speakers and if there is a call to make or take, this is going through the headset.

But now there is the problem that the noise level for the headset is too low. Increasing volume has no effect on the headset, it only affects the external speaker's volume.

Now the solution: Going to the control panel and opening the sound setting, go to the audio tab. The external speakers are selected as default. Just temporarily select the headset and then click on volume just below. You can now set the volume for the headset, click OK and click cancel (!!!) on the sound control dialog box. This way the external speakers remain as default output.



Skype-->Tools -> Options -->Sound Devices-->audio device/USB/etc Audio Device (do NOT use windows default device)
You can also tick the ring pc speaker check box as this is a good backup to alert you even
if the main speakers are off or turned down.

Windows:
Start-->Control panel-->Sound and Audio devices
On the audio tab set the default playback device to your main soundcard(AC97/Audio-chip/add-on-adapter), etc.
Your installed audio device must be present there.
If not, reinstall audio device


thanks
good luck

Logitech speaker feedback


Feedback is a sharp, loud noise that can come through the earphones of a headset unexpectedly---it occurs when the headset is getting sound (feed) from someone else speaking or playing music into a microphone. This sound can create a dangerous situation for someone who is operating expensive equipment or flying a plane at the time since it can disable hearing temporarily.
If you experience feedback often, it could also lead to serious hearing problems.

Mic Too Close to the Speaker or Volume Too High
The main cause of a feedback sound in a headset is proximity to a speaker. If a person holding a microphone on the other end gets too close to a speaker, it creates a loop of re-amplified sound that results in the loud, screeching noise. When the volume on the other party's microphone is too high, it is more vulnerable to picking up unwanted noise and feedback from speakers and sound output devices in the room. So make sure that you ask the other party to turn down the microphone to a normal level and stay far from speakers. b> Two Microphones Gathering Same Sound b> When the other party places two microphones too close to each other, it could cause feedback. When positioned toward the sound source (such as a person speaking) the microphones will both pick up the same audio and compete with each other when creating the output of sound, causing a sharp noise in your headset. This problem, called acoustic phase interference, is resolved by simply ensuring that the other party uses one microphone at a time. Poor-Quality Headset or Microphone b> One common cause of feedback is simply a poor-quality headset or microphone. Most modern headsets and microphones have noise-canceling features that manage and kill feedback before it has a chance to occur. These noise-canceling headsets are essential for pilots and aviation crew members. If you hear sudden feedback that is strong enough to hurt your ears, the headset or microphone is simply not properly equipped to actively cancel that unwanted noise before it hits your ears. Buy a higher-quality noise-canceling headset to manage the feedback noise when you're going about your tasks. Hope this helps.

Controller giving feedback?


If you are not using a microphone, then you are not the feedback source.
That being said, a blue-tooth headset still qualifies as a microphone, and is capable of generating feedback.

If using blue-tooth, then switch to a standard wired headset to determine if the feedback diminishes.

Regardless of headset type, be sure to have game chatter through the headset only setting as opposed to through the TV speakers, and keep the TV turned down. There will be an obvious lag between TV speaker and headset microphone which can create a feedback loop.

If other gamers can hear your TV when you are talking, then the TV output is too loud and will create feedback opportunities.

If none of the above applies, then the feedback is generated elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

My Saitek GH20 Headset Mic Buzzing


Hello.

I had the same problem for like ten minutes ago. I have a Swedish Vista computer and don't know all the translations but I'll give it a go.
This will reduce the buzzing not remove it.

Go to the control panel and click "sound". From there go to "recording" And double click on the microphone. You should get a new screen up. Click to the second button "Levels". Now drag the "microphonestrenghning" (the bottom one) and drag it down to 0 DB.
(optional) Drag the "Microphone" up to 100.

Hope this help you. It worked for me at least. :D

Are you using a bluetooth headset or using the Sidekick as is? One of the problems might be that you have your handset volume turned up too high so that the incoming audio gets fed back through the microphone. Try turning down the sound and see if that helps.
