I recently purchased these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-082-_-Product

The only problem I'm having is with the microphone. It works when I test it through the control panel, ventrilo & through counter strike's SETTINGS in the desktop icon (does NOT work in game btw)

When I first got them, they worked wonders but i don't know if I accidentally ticked something off or what that they stopped working IN-GAME & when i'm trying to search for music using midomi, etc.

Remember, they DO work. I do hear my voice when I test it using ventrilo & stuff, but they don't work while I'm playing counter strike or using midomi.

any tips?

Do you have a front and back mic port? Try using the other port if you have one.
If you have sound card drivers (like realtek), try messing with those.

Are you sure it doesn't work in game? Other players couldn't hear you?
Have you tried it with another game, or skype or something like that

In fact, I do. Unfortunately, the headphone wires are USB (not separated with a microphone & headphone jack). In order to use the headphones, it came with a disc which required to install the 'Creative' program.. how obnoxious, I know.

I do. But RealTek only worked with my old set of headphones which had the two separate jacks. Doesn't work with this USB one. I have to use strictly 'Creative' settings.. and as I stated in my original post, the microphone DOES work. It just doesn't work in game and with other stuff for some odd reason.

Are you sure it doesn't work in game? Other players couldn't hear you?
I'm sure. I even asked the players and they said no. I also tested it under the in-game settings and heard nothing. When I check it through the settings from the desktop icons, it works...

It works on ventrilo.

Have you tried running counter strike in window mode to see if that makes a difference?

Go into counterstrike, and in the console make sure voice_enable is set to 1

Also, go in game, change the command voice_loopback to 1 and see if you can hear yourself talking.

Have you looked through all of the headphones software to see if there is any tab that deals with games?

I'm stumped here. Perhaps someone else could provide some more insight.

Something else you could do to help further narrow down the issue is to try the same microphone on a different computer for the same programs.

Does the same issue occur?
