  1. My headset is no longer working after just getting it.


    I just bought a new headset to replace an older, malfunctioning ones Astro A40s. However, after a week of flawless use, the microphone for the new headset started making high pitch noises, and no voice was being picked up. My new headphones are a pair of HyperX Cloud Stingers. I believe my computer is the problem because this is similar to what happened to my A40s. Before I plugged my Astros into my PC I am new to PC and just converted from Xbox, they worked great. But upon plugging them in, I had to adjust the mic so it didn't make a loud static noise, or even talk through it this was also Accurint in my Xbox controller from that point forward. That's why I bought new ones. After a week yesterday the mic makes an even worse sound that is more high pitched when unmuted or bumped, and sometimes audio doesn't work. I really need help, and I don't want to but a new headset just for it to break/ not work.

    :)

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue My headset is no longer working after just getting it. :p
