  3. Boost mic volume

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that windows is unable to configure the microphone settings for your headset device.

    I would suggest you to use the below steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Run the Microphone Setup Wizard


    • Type “Set up Mic” in Cortana’s Search box.

    • Follow the instructions provided to set up your microphone.
    Check your microphone’s drivers


    • Type in “Device Manager” in the Search box and select it from the list.

    • Expand Sound, video and game controllers

    • Right-click (or tap and hold) your microphone device and select
      Update Driver Software.

    • Select Search automatically for updated driver software.
      This option will scan the Internet for the correct version of the driver or determine if you already have the most recent driver installed.
      You may be prompted to restart your computer to install the driver.
    Manually turn up the mic gain


    • Type in “Sound” in the Search box and select
      Sound (Control Panel)
      from the list.

    • Select the Recording tab.

    • Right-click (or tap and hold) on the active microphone input device and select
      Properties.

    • Select the Levels tab.

    • Manually drag the Microphone gain to a higher level and click
      Apply.
    Write to us with the updated information. If the issue still persists we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

    Mic boost

    Mic boost for default USB mic driver.

    I have tried MANY MANY usb micrphones, and every single one that uses the default usb audio driver does NOT have a mic boost (this is pretty much every one of them).

    The recording volume is often too low to record low volume stuff, even at max.

    Only mics that have their own special audio driver ever actually have a mic boost.

    Is there some reason that this can't be fixed? Is it something to do with the usb microphone specification?
