So essentially, I recently bought a Razer Kraken Pro headset and the mic isn't working. Actually, no, it is working, but only if i hold it literally half a centimeter from my mouth and even then the voice recognition is pathetic. I've tried going to Realtek HD Audio Manager and under "Microphone" changing the Recording Volume on both sliders to max. I also tried going to Control Panel->Sound->Recording->Microphone->Properties->Levels. Here, I changed both the "Microphone" and "Microphone Boost" to max.
Not only does the mic not recognize my voice with such pumped up settings, there's way too much background noise like that. I tested it on Mumble under the Audio Wizard as well as using Windows' "Set up a microphone". When i try using my old shit-quality Logitech headset or my laptop even-worse-quality microphone, my voice gets recognized just fine. There just seems to be a problem with this Razer headset apparently which honestly surprises me a lot. But then again i just could be a mong.
So if anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
