    Gaming Headset W/ Detachable Mic Support Issues


    Hi all


    I'm using a Corsair gaming headset, the headset has a detachable microphone with a plug-in jack. This headset has worked fine up until tonight (10/01/2019). I'm aware that when plugging directly into your computer, such as the tower, windows 10 provides an option to select what device has been input. In my case I am aware this needs to be a headset, not headphones. However recently, I struggled to change this after mistakenly putting the option as a headphone, and when plugging the mic into my headset it would not work.

    I seem to have arranged a work-around, leaving the option for the dialog box to appear each time I detach and reinsert my headset, however unless the headset is inserted with the mic attached, it simply will not recognise it when plugged in. Does anyone know what settings I need to change to switch from headset to headphones, and vice versa, as well as to make sure I can simply plug in my headset and then my mic later on without having to then re-attach and reset them?


    Additionally, I did have some issues with my audio drivers, as it was suggested to disable realtek audio manager and then re-install it, however I attempted this and now only the Realtek audio driver is present in my device manager. I can still use my headset, as above and have noticed no degradation in audio quality, but I want to know if this would also be an issue.


    Further details can be provided on request, thanks in advance.

    :)

    G433 Gaming Headset Mic is not working

    I have no problem with the audio, only with the mic.

    I don't have another headset to check with.

    I am having this issue in all games and applications.

    Gaming mic and headset

    I'm sick of using my mic which gives terrible feedback and loops the audio of the speakers, and also getting slapped for having the speakers up to loud trying to hear footsteps when playing cs *Laugh :laugh: So its time to get a headset w/ mic. So what headsets are durable and sound good? Ive broken about 4 headsets by dropping or standing on them but this time i will be more careful. So just find the cheapest of eBay? What ones do you all have?
