Default HS1 muffled mic

I've just bought an HS1 for gaming. Audio is excellent, no problems there.

Using the mic is another matter. It sounds strange talking on it since you cannot hear yourself talk, but I can get used to that. The problem is that when I talk, other people cannot hear me properly. By all accounts my voice is very muffled. In-game voice (Lotro) is never as good quality but this is worse then any mic I've ever used. Using Teamspeak 3, my voice is still muffled.

I've tried looking through all the settings but cannot find anything to improve it. Has anybody managed to work out how to fix this?

In the audio properties the MIC is muted by default you can un-mute it to hear your self and set the Volume of the MIC should be all you have to do.

It's not a mute or volume issue. Sounds like a codec issue. Ran into them before with Ventrillo and other headsets. Not sure what the fix would be w/ the HS1, unless it's a different codec causing issues.

Maybe, but did you try adjusting the MIC Volume digideb?

Yeah, I'm getting a severely muffled mic as well, I have to practically pull it right to my mouth to be heard. I even maxed the mic in every control panel I could find.

Did you figure this out? If not and you tried the HS1 on another system and its still not working then please use the link on the left and request an RMA.

But as aside note you have to use the Corsair Audio Application not the sound Icon to adjust the Audio of HS1.
