I received my Asus HS-101 PC Headset today and plugged them in - I can hear sound though the microphone doesn't work for some reason. Any ideas?

You plugged both the headphone part in and the mic part in separately, right?
If you right-click on the speaker icon, you can select the "recording options". There may be a checkbox for "+20db" for the microphone as well as a volume slider. Try both.

Plugged in microphone not working

We really need more specific information to answer your question, like what kind of computer and operating system. But in the most general terms, make sure you are plugging your microphone into the microphone port and not the headphone port. Check that the volume setting is turned up and not muted. You might also have to turn the microphone on through the sound settings (usually found by right-click on the volume).

Trust headset HS2900 suitable for apple macbook?

On the MacBook there is no microphone port, if you look closely, it is not a microphone plug, it is a line in plug. Line in cannot record sounds from a microphone without amplification. What I would recommend doing is purchasing this adapter: With this adapter, you plug your headset and mic into it and then it plugs into the USB port on your MacBook. Then you can just unplug it from the USB port when you are done.

Roland DR-30 Mic - how do you use it?

If the mic is a dynamic microphone, you would need a small mixer. The line input is a high level input and the mic level needs to be boosed. We here at Pro Line Music have small mixers 215-736-8055

How to record audio using microphone input

What is the Make / Model of your Laptop? Depending on this, there may be an internal Microphone built into your computer you could use. If not, I can also show you how to specify windows use the "Microphone" as the input device.

Typically Laptops have 2 input selections "Line Input" and "Mic"

Line input is for use when you want to say.. Hook your ipod up to your laptop.

Microphone is a little different, as the input looks like the same as the other Line Input place, however the Microphone port provides power to whatever is plugged into it, which will cause problems if you plug anything other then a microphone into it.

And vice versa, if you plug a microphone into the "Line In" port, the microphone will not work, because the "Line In" port does not send out power to the microphone. Inside Windows Audio if you click 'Options' then properties, click on the recording tab, after this, make sure all the available check boxes ARE checked. Click OK. Then Find the MicroPhone Slider bar, Make sure it is towards the top, and also the checkbox marked "select" is checked. Then go back to Options - Properties - Click Playback, and ok.

Any other information you could provide will make for a better solution I will follow up on.
