Static when recording as well as a new wireless headset "snow" problem

Hey guys, I made a thread a few years ago about me recording with a Plantronics 380 while using a dolby 5.1 usb soundcard to make the volume louder so people can actually hear me and getting a bit of static issues while recording as heard by the attachment I added with this post.

Now recently at PAX AUS I won a Corsair H2100 wireless headset but whenever I plug it in I get static/snow sounding interference and I have no idea on how to solve it while using corsairs software. They've
told me to send it in as they think it could be a defective product but im doubtful. But if I got a replacement and the same issue occurs I don't think I would be able to sell the headset on something like Ebay.

Any ideas? I would prefer my first issue to be solved first before the corsair if possible thanks

A wireless device is a digital device and its up to the support software, e.g. the Corsair software to amplify or do whatever to the signal. The PC's sound card is not used with digital (the sound card converts analog to digital).

As its wireless, there are possibilities for interference from other wireless devices or even wireless/cell telephones.

e.g. I bought a Logitech Wireless mouse and keyboard. They had interference problems and did not work well. I replaced that with a Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard, which apparently works on a different frequency and it works OK.

In your previous message you said run some test, how do I do it?
Also its kinda hard when every house has wireless devices that could cause interferences... Laptops, phones, the router so how do they expect to get a good response with that product?

Many new devices now run on Bluetooth and that is less susceptible to interference. Some newer devices have multiple frequencies available and automatically switch to one with no or less interference.
