For the first time ever im using personal audio rather than my speaker setup for gaming, but am having issues.
Im using my daily music drivers, Sennheiser CX 5.00, for gaming and mic via my laptop. The issue is, the mic seems to pick up some of the earbud output?
In desktop (30% Vol), if I set it to “listen to this device”, and have the boost to +10dB the mic sounds fine. If I set it to +20dB it echo loud in my ear. If I set it to 0, im not sure if im clear in game over the mic. Testing with voice recorder, I think its too quiet?
So I have the audio in game set to 60%, and using voice recorder in game (without listen to this device) (mic boost @ 10dB) it picks up the games audio maybe 30%.
Could this be drivers, or crosstalk in the cable, or the socket, or vibration from the ear bud reaching the mic? Or maybe I dont need any boost?
This is my first use of mic in game other than my laptops, so have no idea about these things?
