IF you are in Windows 7: -
1. Click "Control Panel" > "Sound" > "Recording"
2. Place cursor over "Microphone - Logitech Wireless Headset Default Device".
3. Right Click and select "Properties"
4. Click the "Listen" Tab
5. Uncheck the "Listen to this device"
6. Click "Apply",. and "OK"
That will eliminate you hearing any nose picked up by the microphone. Others will still be able to hear your voice as long as you have the headset as your default microphone.
First check whether your mic is connected properly. If yes, then open the sound recorder. It is in, all programs--accessories--entertainment. once you open the sound recorder, try to record some audio. you can just talk. It is done by clicking the button with a red dot. Then play it back. If you can hear what your recorded, you are almost there. If not your mic is bad or it is muted. To check this right click on the speaker button you will see on the right hand bottom corner (assuming you are using windows). click on "open volume conrol". Then click on options . Then click on properties and then click on recording. There should be a green check mark on the microphone. If no,t click on it. Then click ok. then check whether the select has a green check mark. If not click on it. Once this done, try the process of recording once again. Hopefully you should be able to record. now your system has the capability to function with mic. Now according to yahoo or skype or whatever you are using you need to tune the audio according to the instruction from the program. Hope this helps
Fixed it: the microphone on the headphone was switched off - it's a bit of a design weakness in the Logitech headset: it's easy to unintentionally turn the microphone off while putting the headset on. The lower half of the right headphone's central medallion is a button - indicated by a crossed out microphone icon.
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.
