I just built this PC. I bought Phillips SHP9500 and a V Moda Boom Pro Mic. When I try to test the mic, it is very very muffled. Even when at the highest volume and boost settings. I tried with a pair of in-ear wired headphones with a mic too, and it's the same thing. I have a Gigabyte B365M DS3H motherboard with Realtek(R) Audio and Windows 10. When I go to the sound configuration the mic test bar barely moves. But it does move more when I tap the sides of my headphones. Here is what I've tried:

-toggled the mic mute/turning up the mic volume on the physical mic
-turning up the volume and boost, checking for mute in the sound options
-re-installing the drivers
-trying the inputs in the front and back of my computer
-trying the other input options in the sound options

Any ideas? I can provide more info if needed.
