Hello

Can you please confirm if it's a laptop? If so, after connecting your mic, make sure the headset's mic is selected and is set as default in the Recording tab of the Sound box.

If there's a humming sound, please try unplugging your computer from the power supply and see the disturbance goes away.

Please report back with the results if the problem persists, and you need any further assistance.

Cheers!!

Hello again

Can you please check if any updates are available for the audio card driver, and that the BIOS is updated as well?

When you say the audio is 'bad', what kind of bad is it? I mean, is it too low, does it have some disturbance, is it too high and/or distorted, etc.?

Depending on the type of output the device is generating, the solution may vary.

Cheers!!

I checked for new drivers. I came in contact with microsoft support and they made me reinstall windows home with some program or whatever but that did not work.
When i go in the settings where you can turn the volume up and down, when i have it at 100, the mic is super low. If i turn up dB, i can hear myself, and clearly, but there is a lot of static background noise.
Another thing, i have a mic with a physical mute function where you can mute the mic by dragging it up on the headset. Even when i have it muted, i still hear that background noise
