HELP my headset is buzzing lol!!!!

I recently bought a mikomi USB Stereo Digital headset from Argos (lol dunno if this post is Amercan or not..) for £17.99 anyways I've had it for a few weeks and it has been working fine until today. When I plugged it into the USB port I got a constant buzzing through the headset which seemed to be effected by the mike not to sure... I tried plugging it into different ports with no change at all. This model I gather is supposed to be plug and play so I don't think I need any drivers or whatever. Anyways would appreciate sum help thanx.

Try muting the mic under windows sound properties then unmuting it , or uncheck the 20% mic boost, also you can try reinstalling your sound drivers, they may have gotten corrupted

SOURCE: I need help!!! my headset is buzzing lol

check the audio setting. If AUX is turned on instead of Microphone, it will cut out because its waiting for an input from another source.

make sure the LINE-IN isnt turned on or the S/pdif-in.

Only have on the ( PLAYBACK, WAVE, CD AUDIO, MIDI, and Microphone. And there not muted or turned down.


If its USB it may need drivers but they should have come on a CD with it.

Also make sure that if your using sound card, that its set up in the audio properties to be the audio renderer

THERE IS NO OPTION BELOW TO "PICK AN EXPERT" FOR PIANO. I have a Yamaha Portable Grand Piano, style DGX-640 and have lost my owners manual. I would like to have access to one on line. My main...


I'm sure your piano has a 1/4" stereo headphone jack, and your headset is 1/8". Go to any electronics store and ask for a 1/8" female to 1/4" male stereo adapter.

I ahve a kenmore receiver and i just recently


If your adapter has a stereo mini male plug, you will probably have to buy a headphone adapter plug and use the headphone jack on the stereo for your input connection.

I have a buzzing noise in my ear force x1 headset for xbox in the right ear.


If left channel is clean but only the right is buzzing then it must be a wiring or connection problem.
First try a different headset ,but if that does not cure the 'buzz' then a bit more work will be required with the stereo socket where you plug the headset!

Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System


Hi, Based on your post/description, the Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System is a basic external speaker that plugs into your PC's speaker/headset output (green jack). It is supposed to get its power from the +5VDC supplied by the USB port. Some USB port have current limiting therefore it can be anywhere from 10 - 500 mA. The power requirement of your external Durabrand speaker maybe beyond what the PC's USB ports can supply. It does not need to be recognized by the OS since it only connects to the USB to get power but there is no data interaction. Perhaps what you can do is get an external +5VDC power supply whose output is in USB type connector. The current rating would depend on the requirement of your speaker. Offhand, if the speakers are not that big, probably a 1 Amp would do. This is of course assuming that the Durabrand speaker system is fully functional. If with an external power supply it is still a no go and you have verified that sound do come out of your green jack (with the use of an ordinary headset), then the Durabrand is defective. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
