So I didn't find any forums for the product, hopefully anyone here can help.


I recently bought this new headset, the Etekcity H5GX Gaming Headset, link is below, and despite the reviews that say they get no static when using the mic, when I record in Audacity or Audition, there is static. When I try to use the mic on Skype, it doesn't even recognize it. I think there may be something wrong within my settings or sound card, or perhaps I changed something within the sound manager panel that I wasn't supposed to change.
