Hello, I've got a Fhilips fidelio x2 with V - Moda BoomPro mic and a ASUS Xonar U7 MKII. And I've got a problem where my mic picks up a lot of my computer sounds. I can have videos at like 20% volume and people in my discord can here it quite clear though my mic Its almost like some of the sound goes through my mic and then to the headphones. This problem also existed before i bought the Asus Xonar U7 MKII (when i used my motherboards audio). Anyone know what the problem might be and how to fix it? And yes, Stereo mix is disabled.

The headphone/microphone cable is supposed to be shielded from this kind of cross talk interference but there is a lot of cheap hardware out there that doesn't quite  provide the isolation needed.  Check it out with a known good headphone/microphone set.

turn down the mic gain.  then it won't be so sensitive.

Forgot i had an extension cable :) When i removed the extension cable at least half of my own the sound disappeared from the mic but i have another question. Is it normal for mics so have a "static sound" when at high volume? Like this (this is my mic, i normally have it at 92%)

depends on the type of mic and how they are built.  but yes if you turn up the gain on any mic your gonna pickup all kinds of room noise.

The most common noise my mic picks up is the fan on the desktop.

is it blowing towards the mic? if so then point it away from the mic or you could try a foam windscreen on the end of the mic.

Luckily Discord removes most sounds but I was just curious. And its not he blowing sound i was pointing out, I was talking more about the cracking sound.
