  1. Microphone help


    I have a problem with my microphone. Over time, I learned that while talking on a microphone, I only hear myself on one headset while other people I talk to hear me on both headphones. It wasn't a problem for me until I tried to record something while I was talking, and then I learned that in my videos where I speak through a microphone, my voice is heard on only one headset and that's the way it is for everyone, which is already a problem for me. I don't know how to solve it, so please if anyone knows the answer let them write it will mean a lot to me.
