  1. Microphone from my earphones is really quiet even on max volume and +30.0dB


    I tested it on my phone (android) and manjaro linux in dualboot and it seems that the earphones work 100% correctly and it's the system which causes these problems, I tried turning different options in Realtek HD Audio Manager and nothing helped me, I also don't think I could use some equalizer too make it even louder because right now on these maximized settings the voice is only a quiet background to a loud static noise and trying more would cauuse it to be even worse. I tried reinstalling the drivers multiple times but it didn't seem to work.

    Please help me I need to fix it by tommorow (9 hours from when I post it)

    Earphone volume too loud or too quiet on Windows 10

    Hi I'm having a weird problem on my laptop running Windows 10 Pro. The earphone volume is either too loud or too quiet, and seems to switch between these two upon every restart. When it's too loud, keeping it at 1/100 is equivalent to 20-30/100 when sound was normal, when it's too quiet, keeping it at 100/100 is equivalent to 10-20/100 when sound was normal. Already googled extensively and tried pretty much every suggestion I found with no results:


    • Enable/disable loudness equalization in playback device settings
    • Enable/disable Windows Sonic for headphones in playback device settings
    • Check for errors in sound devices in device manager - no errors
    • Update sound drivers - all updated
    • Try different earphones - tried like 4 already, definitely not an issue with earphones
    • Even tried system restore, still not fixed

    Does anyone know what else to try?

  4. Microphone from my earphones is really quiet even on max volume and +30.0dB

    Microphone keeps going really quiet

    I've had a problem for a few months now, where my microphone 'randomly' becomes really quiet for a reason i don't know. I first noticed the problem in discord, but its also been occurring with other applications so its not a Discord problem. it goes quiet
    for a random amount of time, before reverting back 2 normal, only for a few seconds, which makes it almost impossible to talk to people with.

    I've tried a few things. Such as:

    • Updating audio drivers from device manager.
    • Turned off all of the 'Exclusive Mode' options
    • boosting my microphone to try and counteract going quiet (didn't help)
    • buying a brand new headset. (The ARCTIS 3 - Arctis 3 Gaming Headset)
    if anyone can help, it would be very appreciated as its been bugging me for a while now. Thanks

    (also, i'm using windows 10)
