Windows 7: Small problem with my headsett mic.

Small problem with my headsett mic.

Ok so my problem is that my mic picks up almost every sound from my headphones.
I use Skype allot when i`m playing with friends and they can all hear my in-game sounds and my music playing in the back ground. I've tried to tweak the sound level in Skype, and made sure that Skype dosnt automatically adjust the mic volume. And I`ve been in the windows control panel and adjusted the mic a bit there.

And i had to tune the mic boost up a bit as well or else my voice was to low on Skype. And i think that is the main problem. Is there any other way to turn the sound level on my mic up without booting it?

This is a new headsett (Razer Carcharias). Have never had problems like this with any of my older headsetts

After a little more research i found out that its just how the headset is. Cause its an open headset the sound leaks out easy, and the sensitive mic picks up the sound. So i guess the only option i have is to get a foam cover for the mic and see if that helps anything
