It’s a solid-sounding microphone despite its tendency to pick up some background noise. The $100 Rode microphone seems a bit unbelievable, but somehow it’s a reality. The sturdy microphone now has an LED-lit front panel that usefully monitors your volume levels at a glance, and the sound quality remains top-notch. This ‘Smart Knob’ functionality also allows on-the-go tweaks to gain, headphone levels (while using the built-in 3.5mm jack), and blend modes. That means you can adjust how loud you are in your headphones, how loud you sound to others and the volume of your headphones all from the front of the unit.
A set of O-Ring keyboard switch dampeners will typically set you back anywhere from $5 to $20. If you are interested in hearing the different switches for yourself, check out this short sound comparison video. Also, if you’re using a headset that only has one wire and one plug, you’ll need a headset splitter. If you’re already using a headset splitter, make sure you have both plugs plugged into the proper jack on your computer. In most cases, you’ll notice that there is a green checkmark on your Apple headphones.
In the Recording Audio wizard, select Next and follow the prompts. Make sure your device is right in front of you when you speak. Should you have software like Realtek’s HD Audio Manager, try disabling jack detection and see if that helps.
You’ll now see two sliders, one for microphone volume, and one called Microphone Boost. Set the value to your desired mic volume and check if the issue goes away. The microphone level’s registry configuration can also cause this adjustment issue. You can use the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter to make sure the new devices have been installed on your PC correctly and look for common issues. You’ll be prompted to read a sentence and set up your desired volume by lowering or raising your voice.
