    Bluetooth headset as a 3.5mm mic?

    Hello everyone.

    I got a weird question for ya.

    I've tried several BT headsets as microphones for in-game communication, VOIP chat, vent, etc.
    I've tried Plantronics M55, M70, Some Bluetooth 4.0 headset with "HD audio" and some old Nokia models, bunch of em with various protocol support, hands-free, A2DP, and various Bluetooth USB dongles 2.0 to 4.0

    The problem is, all Bluetooth mics are extremely quiet AND pick up lots of noise (even if they are noise-cancelling). I've been reading threads from all over trying to figure out to make me sound clearer and louder, but the problem presists. I've ruled out hardware issues since ive tried different bt adapters, headsets, etc.

    On the other hand, the 3.5mm mic that I have, even the super cheap ones, all sound super loud and clear.

    Is there anything else I can possibly try to fix this?

    Cause as the topic states
    : the only idea that I have is, and it probably wont work - can I connect some BT to 3.5mm receiver to the mic port, and pair a bt headset to it, so Windows treats it like 3.5mm mic instead of a regular headset? And if I do that, how can I still hear others over the same BT headset if its paired to the adapter/receiver?

    I need it to be wireless, 3.5 obviously isnt.

    I've checked a bunch of receivers - they all have the same problem, they can't receive and transmit at the same time to emulate a 3.5mm mic.

    For now I turned myself up in Vent, so im louder, but it also increases my background noise or something, my room is quiet, on 3.5mm in loud and clear.

    Is there a bluetooth headset that guaranteed to be loud and clear? That has extensive mic control in Windows?

    Thanks.

    Laptop not splitting headset mic & audio?

    Hi
    Simple version. When i plug in my headset to my laptop windows10 is not splitting it into one output and one input.

    I fixed this years back by setting the popup box 'whats plugged in' from headphone to headset. Then it split the audio and mic. However i had to reinstall windows and now when i select headset it just mutes my laptop mic and audio manager just shows the one mic, but two audio outputs.

    It was working before the reset and i have tested the headset on another computer and it is working find.
    So far i tried device manage audio driver install, for both Realtek driver and High Definition driver but either resolve the issue.

    Any suggestions why windows would pick up one and not the other?

    I currently have it set to headphone plugged in so that i can use my laptop mic, but ive been told i sound really bad *Sad

    Cheers,
    Zola

    My bluetooth headset only connects as mic, and not audio

    Bluetooth headphone mic and stereo audio not working simultaneously on laptop

    I have a Sennheiser HD4.40BT bluetooth headphone.

    When I connect this to my android phone, I can listen stereo quality music and while call, I can hear other person clearly and use the mic also.

    Problem appear when I connected headphone with my laptop through laptop's inbuilt bluetooth.

    The problem is headphone is connecting in one of 2 ways: Headphone mode and Headset mode(with mic).

    - When I select headphone mode, sound is great but I cannot use my mic.

    - When I select headset mode(or handsfree mode), I continuously hear static and very poor audio quality but can use mic with this mode.

    I already read to disable headset mode to get stereo quality but "this is not my purpose".

    What I want is to use headphone with stereo audio and mic simultaneously.
