jamesgillre Posted February 14, 2013 Share Posted February 14, 2013 Hi there, new to the corsair forums, although I have read many posts on here and got plenty of helpful information, thanks to all! My problem is with my 1 year old Asus G53SW-A1 and my vengeance 1500 headphones. I have never used microphones until now with my equipment, but recently purchased the gaming headset (Corsair Vengeance 1500). I have exhausted all troubleshooting advice. But, I tested the ONBOARD microphone (on laptop) and it also has the same problem as the Corsair headset. The problem is a 50Hz low humming sound when using the microphone. Playback of any recorded sounds or speech is horrible because of this humming sound on either the Corsair or the Onboard Mic. Could this be a ground loop problem or an issue with the G53SW power supply? Incidently, the problem is resolved when AC adapter is removed and powered by battery only. Any ideas anyone? Please help I have tried everything possible to resolve this.. Thanks in advance. I am considering changing the power supply and also maybe trying a USB powered hub. Would the powered hub remove any interference possibly generated by my laptop since it is self powered? Or could there be leakage from the laptop still? Thanks.
