I picked up a new headset mic after Christmas and attempted to use it in Skype but the mic did not pick up any, or possibly just very little, sound. I have gone into the properties and increased the mic volume and boost, I did several other test of my mic and all of them found the mic to pick up little to no sound despite the mic being an inch from my mouth and at full volume. I am using windows 7 and have gotten other mics to work to a usable level before. Any help would be appreciated. Edit: The mic did not come with anything to install I simply plugged it into the computer and the computer accepted it. Edit 2: I used my mic on my brothers computer and had the same problem, he also uses windows 7. His more expensive headset mic however worked fine on his computer so it seems that the problem is my mic.
