When I speak the output of my voice is somewhat alien-ish. I tried using different microphones and the same thing happens. It is probably something about my PC but I had only gotten this PC this month. Can someone help me?

You do realize, that no matter which recording device you're using, your voice will sound different (far higher pitched, almost alien like) than you, yourself, can hear it. Right?

We normally hear our own voice while talking, we receive both sound transferred to our ears externally by air conduction and sound transferred internally through our bones. This bone conduction of sound delivers rich low frequencies that are not included in air-conducted vocal sound. So when you hear your recorded voice without these frequencies, it sounds higher – and different. Basically, the reasoning is that because our recorded voice does not sound how we expect it to, we don’t like it.

Does your PC happen to have front mic port as well? Many PC cases have front 3.5mm jack mic port too. Or if you've been using it thus far, try the mic port at the back of your PC, at MoBo I/O panel.

Also, have you tested your mics on 2nd PC? Since both could be at fault (reason why i don't use 3.5mm jack mics anymore, all of them died on me).

they work on a second pc, its just the first pc has the problem. Also, the back mic port is too far from the headphones port
