No amount of adjusting really solves the problem, neither from the software or the actual mic.

Is there anything that can be done, other than try to get my money back?
Do you happen to have any other sound management software installed? i.e: Realtek Audio Manager? If so, try uninstall it and see if it makes a difference. Another thing you can try is to do a firmware flash on the headset via iCUE. (Setting > Select the device > Update)
