    Microphone extremely quiet


    So for some odd reason, microphone input is really quiet.

    I'm using Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming as my board so the microphone is being plugged into that. I've tried putting microphone boost and levels to 100% but the input is still really really quiet, if you're lucky you can hear a whisper if you're shouting down the mic.

    I've tested the mic on other devices like my phone and it works fine but for some odd reason my desktop isn't being nice about it.

    This is darn annoying and a massive inconvenience.

    Things I've tried -
    Uninstalled realtek and re-installed the latest driver
    Set microphone boost and levels to max
    Tested with 'Disable all sound effects' on and off

    I'm out of luck at this point and I'm not entirely sure where to go from this. I'd love to get this fixed so some advice/help would be appreciated, thank you.

    I'd like to tag on to this if you don't mind- I use an ordinary headset - not USB- and this has annoyed me for a while and not found an answer - perhaps not devoted enough effort... and I know this comes up from time to time. Just upgraded to 1709, no change.

    What is the make/model of microphone you are using? Is this connected to the MIC jack or USB?
    Have you tried both the rear Pink mic jack and the front panel mic jacks?

    I tried to access the Kotion site but get errors trying to reach the page for the headset. Thus not much to go on.
    I would try another computer mic, just to make sure its not some compatibility issue with the headset. I've seen models that work fine on a smart phone and not on a PC. Some that have problems have the wrong type of connector for a PC, they have a "TRRS" plug instead of a "TRS".

    FWIW here is a review of the headset.

    Ah okay, unfortunately I don't have another mic but I'll have to buy a new one asap I guess.

    Thanks.
