Hello, I just bought a HUHD 2.4Ghz Wireless headset HW-399M that uses a USB reciever. The program I am using the mic for is Skype. Everyone complains that my mic is too low. 

 

EDIT: I forgot to add that it uses a detachable mic, and yes, I did secure the mic to the headset.

 

System Specs:

 

 

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

 

 

Asus M5A99X Evo Motherboard

 

 

AMD FX-6100 6 Core processor

 

 

8 GB RAM

 

 

NVIDIA GTX 550-Ti Graphics card

 

 

Things I've tried:

 

 

Went into device manager and updated drivers (Most current drivers already installed)

 

Turning up mic volume in Skype (No effect)

 

 

Unchecked "Adjust microphone volume automatically" in skype (No effect)

 

 

Opened Sound -> Recording -> 2.4G Wireless headset -> Properties -> Levels -> Turned microphone volume to 100 (No effect)

 

 

Opened Realtek HD audio Manager -> Microphone -> Adjusted microphone volume to highest and set to +30 dB (No effect)

 

 

Secured USB connection to reciever (No effect)

 

 

Plugged in TOSLINK cable (Came with the headset) into my computers SPDIF port and into the recievers Optical IN port (Done after the majority of these other failed fix tries) (No effect)

 

 

Issue:

 

 

When I open Sound and go to Playback -> 2.4G Wireless headset (Both the headset and microphone are called "2.4G Wireless Headset" in the sound panel) -> Properties -> Levels, there is speakers (set to 100) and Microphone (set to +1.0 dB). I'm thinking that the issue is right there, but it won't let me change it. I can't select it or anything. 

 

 

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Can you test your own Mic by going into sound options and recording devices, select your device and go into properties. You should see an option to allow you to "listen" to your own device. Does it still sound low?

Yes, I set it to "listen" and I was very low. I had to practically shout in order to hear myself at a normal volume. My IT Teacher told me to plug the mic into my front mic jack (the mic is detachable from the headset using a standard 3.5 mm male end). My friend (we were testing on Skype since I use that as my main source of voice chat) and he was able to hear me better. I did however return the headset to amazon because if it's gonna be this much trouble it's just not worth it, so I returned it and opted for another headset. I am sorry for any time wasted on this issue.

just for everyone who bought HUHD headset and struggles with low mic volume. try Equalizer APO software which is free and it will fix the issue. guaranteed. check youtube for instructions. e.g.
