    Mic keeps going higher.


    Hello, I have this problem where every time i optimize my mic by lowering the mic volume and higher the Microphone boost. Every so often I come to check it I find it higher, I have my mic on 37, i come back and its 47 or even 88 which makes alot of noise, I watched alot of tutorials on how to stop it from happening by unchecking the option "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" I did it, but still doesnt work, Its quite frusterating, as a gamer, I care ALOT about the mic quality.

    :)

  2. Mic keeps Automatically Adjusting on Windows 10

    I've done these multiple times. The apply button never unlocks itself so I can apply after I adjust my mic settings. My mic keeps muting itself. Please help me.

    USB Mic Problems.

    The next step is what I suggested originally. Try it in a friend's PC or take it to Best Buy and ask them to try it one of their PC's. Have to confirm the mic is working OK.

    Mic keeps Automatically Adjusting on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Does the issue persist only with Skype?

    Method 1: 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.

    Method 2: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.
    Keep us posted on this issue so that we can assist you better.
