Question Corsair HS60 Headset: Discord and other applications pick up desktop audio

When i'm on discord, teamspeak or in a video game's voice chat, everything playing through the headphones can be heard through the mic, I've tried everything at this point, I've disabled stereo mix, uninstalled and reinstalled my realtek drivers, tried different settings, pretty much everything either causes more problems or doesn't work at all, I'm 100% sure it's a software thing at this point because changing where the headset is plugged in or the inline controls doesn't do anything to it, I would greatly appreciate any help or tips to steer me in the right directions cause I've searched dozens of forums for an answer.

Keep in mind I'm using a Corsair HS60 Headset.

Which OS are you working off of? Which version of the OS are you on? You may want to see if the option to listen to this device has been enabled. You might want to reinstall your chipset/USB drivers while the headset is disconnected from the system. Another task you could perform is to uninstall the device from Device Manager(if Windows 10) and see if rebooting the system changes your experience. Are you working with the headset wirelessly or wired?

I'm on Windows 10, listen to this device is off, the headset is wired and I just tried uninstalling it from Device Manager and rebooting and nothing has gotten better or worse, when I lower the volume to the point where I could hear footsteps in the other room with the headset on, then it stops, maybe the audio just gets picked up by the mic because its too loud, and I don't have it at 100% volume all the time, I have it probably around 50-60% at all times and I don't want to have to sit in complete silence just to hear my headset, so I really don't have any more ideas of what to do.

I have the HS50 and I'm having a similar problem. Even when the audio is super low, the mic picks it up. It's really annoying and I'm thinking perhaps it's just bad engineering with this line of headsets from Corsair.

Seems to be a common problem with no solution and everyone saying, "the mic is too sensitive it's just picking up loud audio!" No. That's not the case.

I will have the audio super low, and people I'm in a call with can still hear it. It's ridiculous.
