Microphone doesn't work

Hey, I've just bought e5 headphones with microphone, HP are ok, but mic doesn't work.

I've got max boost and volume, green bar goes up and down by 1 piece. Seems like windows sees the mic, but it doesn't catches the sound. I've read it's common problem with windows 7. What am I supposed to do? Help please.

Please fill in the "My System Specs" (you can see mine for an example). Helps us to try and help you.

Doing a search for "E5 Headphones" There are many posts about buying a preamp so the mic has proper volume.

Since its not working on two different PC's, this suggests a hardware problem in the microphone. Return it for replacement.

Sounds like it's gone south. Take Jack's advice.

Ok... Anyway I have reinstalled drivers and it worked for like 10 minutes (checked with windows sound recorder). Now I'm again getting bzzzzzzzz. Don't really believe it's mics fault. Gonna give it back if it won't work... still I assume it's on w7.

Try a system of a friend maybe with another OS. Try also the Sound Recorder that is in the Accessories. Maybe it is your recording program.

Microphone doesn't work well
I am using dual boot (Win xp and Win 7), on XP my microphone works good, but on Win 7 no one can hear me. I didn't look for drivers because when I installed Win 7 i have all needed drivers. May drivers be a problem, or there is something else? I am using microphone only for Skype.
