Windows 7: Stereo Mixer and Wireless USB Headset; Mic not mixing with audio.

Stereo Mixer and Wireless USB Headset; Mic not mixing with audio.

So I've only recently discovered Stereo Mixer and have been messing around with it for a few days. I've looked high and low for solutions on getting it pick up on my mic, but nothing works. I've read that it won't work with USB headsets, but I want to be sure of it before I give in and buy a new one.

I've set my speakers are the default playback default, headset as the default recording with Mixer as the default communications device, as well as vice-versa in regard to recording devices. I've also set "Listen to this device" in the Mixer to play back through my headset and tried without it checked off. I've gone so far as to use VAC with 3 audio repeaters in some roundabout way to try to get it to work, but still no luck. More details on that of anybody asks.

I have a friend who got it to work flawlessly, and he has a wired headset. I'm using a PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset, so I'm almost positive the headset is the problem. Does anyone have a better solution to this or am I just gonna need a new headset? If so, any suggestions? Preferably within the $80-$100 range.

The Stereo Mixer should be sets as the default "Recording" device. Then any recording device that is plugged in and recognized by Windows can be used.

I don't have a wireless mic so I can't try it in my system.

However, the wireless connection and pairing must be done first. If this is not done then it won't work as Windows will not see the mic and/or headset. This is the first step, get it connected and Windows recognizes the devices. Its not the Stereo Mix problem, the problem is basic - getting it connected and working with Windows.

Yeah, dude. I know to connect the chingus into the other chingus for the chingus to work with the other chingus. My problem is that it's Stereo Mixer not recording my mic, I can use the headset just fine for things like games and Skype. I've already tried setting the Mixer as default and default communications, as well as mixer; default, mic; default communications and mixer; default communications, mic; default.

I've also used this roundabout method, but had no luck with that either.
