    don't think so i use ham radio software echolink and all they have said is my audio is very quiet not enough behind it , i have to put my mouth super close to the mic so they can hear me, they did say there is no background noise at all.
    When I had background noise behind it, I couldn't hear much noise on playback but because of whatever processing was happening in the mic to try and reduce the noise, it affected the result.

    I would definitely try it in as a quiet an environment as possible, to see if it makes a difference.

    I'd also be tempted to try Audacity and see what the levels are like there, just in case it's something to do with the echolink software itself? Also, Audacity has the advantage that you could experiment with levels offline without being in the middle of a conversation with someone.

    But as I said I don't know much about this stuff. @fireberd may have some better suggestions.

    (In case you've not come across it, Audacity is free audio recording software and (I think?) pretty much all you'd need to do is install it, check it was using the right input source, and press the record button and see what the levels look like. With my mic I need to turn it down to stop the levels going into the red. )

    Audacity is a good program to use as it will give you a waveform representation of the mic signal. Sort of like having an Oscilloscope to display the wave form.

    So what the heck is going on nobody can hear me with this mic on windows 10 i put it on windows 7 machine and wala loud audio and people can hear me, i put it back on windows 10 and low audio despite the audio level set at 100 %, but know boost for it at all, so how do i get this mic to sound like it does on windows 7 loud with the slider only at 50% on windows 7. i don't know what to do how do i fix this the snowball is a USB mic and its brand new and works on windows 7 fine, but not 10, anyone have a clue how to boost my audio so i can use this mic on windows 10.
    Sorry to resurrect a really old thread, however I may have an answer for anyone still searching for this.
    Simply download the software Driver Booster
    let it do the scan and then tell it to update the audio drivers it finds.
    reboot
    Voila, your blue snowball should now register appropriate levels.
    You can now uninstall driver booster.
    This fixed the issue for me and I hope it helps at least a few of you.
    cheers,
