    Corsair Headset Microphone Issue


    I just received a brand new Corsair Headset HS35 and the microphone is undetected by Windows 10 no matter what I do. I re-installed my Realtek sound drivers - didn't help. Updated Windows 10 - didn't help. Made sure that the access to microphone is enabled for all apps - also did not help at all. The microphone is in full working order as when I plug it to a microphone port in an external USB sound card I have it works perfectly, but it's not usable for me that way as I need the microphone away from my keyboard and mouse so they're not audible, but when it's plugged into the sound card it has to be on my desk and picks all of those sounds up. It's really frustrating as I shouldn't have to plug it into an external sound card to use it, instead of being able to immediately use it as intended - plugged into the headset.

    Bluetooth Headset Microphones Don't work with Windows 10

    I cannot get any bluetooth headset microphone to work with Windows 10. I have tried three different bluetooth headsets, most recently a Corsair Gaming H2100. I have no problem getting the audio output to work just fine with any of them, but I cannot get
    it to recognize the microphone. I have followed all of the obvious steps:

    • Uninstalled and reinstalled the newest version of the drivers
    • Restart my computer
    • Disable other microphones
    • Set the headset as the default recording device
    • Check the levels and set to 100
    • Remove the device with the device manager and reinstall
    • Unplug and plug back in my bluetooth antenna
    • Make sure that Windows is totally updated
    None of these steps has made any difference. I am able to get wired microphones to work, but this isn't ideal with my current set-up, as I sit about 10 feet away from my computer and use my 55" television as my monitor. So, I have a really nice webcam that
    I use as a microphone. It is fine, but I would really like to be able to use a bluetooth headset sometimes and not have to talk loudly to a microphone across the room.

    Happy to have any help. Thanks.
