    Microphone picks up audio from PC, not my voice.


    Problem:

    I'm trying to talk to my friends using a voice chat app on my pc but it just plays stuff from the game i'm playing or video i'm watching, not my voice.


    Notes:

    New headset https://www.argos.co.uk/product/3106293


    Headset has one pin for both microphone and audio

    PC requires separate pins for both microphone and audio

    For that reason I've bought an audio splitter


    dont know what else to put

    :)

  2. Microphone only picks up audio from headphones?

    I currently have a pair of razer kraken pro v2's which are plugged into my computer via a headphone splitter. My computer detects my headphones just fine (audio working and all), but when it comes to using the microphone it doesn't seem to pick up my voice at all and only picks up audio coming out through the headphones.

    (EDIT): My microphone can now pick up my voice, but it still picks up sounds from my computer. Any way to fix this this?

  3. Microphone does not pick up voice

    My headset microphone is completely functional; however, my PC cannot pick up my voice. If I blow loudly in the microphone, the green bar on the sound control panel will light up but not when I talk normally. My drivers are fully updated and my microphone
    levels are maxed out.

    Microphone picks up headphone audio.

    Hi,

    A microphone is a sound receiver device that can record sounds and convert it to an audio file. To help us identify your concerns with your microphone, we’d like to ask you a few questions:

    • What is the exact brand and model of your microphone?
    • Which version or build of Windows device are you using? To know, press
      Windows + R
      to open the Run window. Type winver and press
      Enter. A new window will open showing the version and build number of your Windows device.
    • What were the recent changes made on your computer before you experienced this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Did you receive any error messages?
    • Did you use this microphone normally before? If yes, can you tell us if this was working properly?
    • Have you already contacted your manufacturer of your microphone for troubleshooting instructions?
    • Can you check if the device was installed properly in the Device Manager? To check it, follow these steps:
    1. Press Windows key + X.

    2. Click Device Manager.

    3. Expand Sound, Video and game controllers.

    4. Check if the devices under it have a yellow exclamation mark.

    In addition, you can visit this link:

    PC.

    We are looking forward to your response.
