Windows 7: Mic not working while using Steelseries usb sound card and headphones

25 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 10 64 bit

I had THX Tru Studio that came with one of the desktop motherboards I have. It was installed without problem, with all the other motherboard software.

There is probably something missing on your system.

The Steelseries USB Sound Card records the sound on the right channel and if your microphone is only connected to the left channel, it will not Work. it is standard to short circuit the left and right channel in the mini-Jack connector for mono microphones, but some headset manufactures do not do that.
I solved the issu by connecting the left and right channel at the mini Jack connector inside the USB soundcard.
I hope this helps you?
