Windows 7: Voice audio is dim after Mic install, other sounds are normal

Voice audio is dim after Mic install, other sounds are normal


I have a strange problem: I recently used a plug-and play microphone, and now my speaker volume for voice audio is extremely low. Even on random youtube videos I can hear the background music but the voices are only faint. I did not know such a thing was possible.

The background music also sounds different. The guitar sounds are more pronounced but there is little to no bass

This is the microphone I used: Logitech USB Desktop Microphone: Electronics

I am on windows 7 home 32 bit

This problem also happens on skype; I can't hear the other person at an audible level (I can hear very faint voices only)

on mp3 files in winamp the low voice volume problem is not as pronounced for some reason. The pronounced guitar/no bass effect is there.


Because this voice issue is happening in multiple programs, and it started right after I plugged in the mic and Windows 7 installed it, I believe the operating system has been misconfigured.

Anyone know how I can fix this?
