Thread: HyperX Cloud Stinger mic very quiet

  1. #1

    Default HyperX Cloud Stinger mic very quiet

    So I just bought this HyperX Cloud Stinger and it works fine and all, but the mic is stupidly quiet. In tf2, when recording, or in Discord it's always quiet.

    I used to use some lowish quality Logitech headphones, and I'm not sure exactly sure what exactly they are, but they worked just fine.

    When I plugged these headphones into my brother's PC and tested them with Discord, they were a little quieter than his pair, which is probably because they're not the same kind.

    Anyway, they have these drivers that are installed, two I believe. But I also have this 2779-4 (NVIDIA High Definition Audio)
    the other two that are there are:
    Microphone (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)

    I don't have any mic controls on this mic, and yes I have the correct one selected in the audio devices in my control panel. And I updated the drivers as well. This is frustrating as I game online constantly.

    I'm not at all savvy with audio stuff and drivers, and it seems not many others have problems with the Stinger, because I can't find any other threads with this problem with this headset.

    If someone can tell me what to do or guide me to a good place to fix the problems I will be much appreciative.

    So that seemed to fix it in Discord, I haven't tried recording, but I'm sure that will be fine too. tf2 seems to just make my mic quiet for some reason, but it's more audible so I'll settle for that. Thanks, I'm glad the solution was easy and simple.

    What was the solution?
    I tried posting an answer but it somehow doesn't show now. I'll try again. Was the solution in that somewhere?

    here goes:

    May not matter, but wired or wireless version?

    If wired, are you pluggin into Usb? Or are you using the supplied splitter cable and plugging into a mic port and speaker port?

    Thought: make sure no other mics plugged in. (The soft sound could be coming from a different mic.)

    Also check the basic settings in the Realtek menu.
    Also make sure Audio Enhancement Effects are off. (things like "auditorium" "car" etc.
