Of hearing up to 2 million hearing aids Widex control market

I have been using Rosetta Stone v.3 (language course) for a couple of weeks. It involves using a USB headset with microphone. Everything was fine until yesterday. In the morning it all worked; in the afternoon (no one had used the computer in the meantime) it didn't work. The volume that the microphone is now picking up is too low to function with the software. I've replaced the headset, still same problem. This morning updated sound driver to be sure that wasn't the issue. I've adjusted the volume control multiple times, including the microphone volume control.

When I go into the "Test Hardware" under the voice tab on the control panel set up for "Sounds and Audio" and run the hardware test, even with the volume cranked all the way up it's very hard to get the monitor to move at all unless speaking very loudly with the microphone right in my mouth. Not a problem I had before.

One other note about this: when I've run the "hardware test" with the old headset I notice that there is a humming, almost like a feedback of some type, and the monitor for the test goes up and down constantly. Not with the new microphone headset. Could the old headset have burned something out?

I've had the same confusion when I first got my USB Microphone.

When you first enter your volume control, the labeled "Microphone" control is not actually the microphone's input control.

Go to Options > Properties.

Make sure your "Mixer Device" sol republic headphones is the name of your microphone model.

Then under "Adjust Volume For", click on "Recording".

Make sure there's a check on all the options given under "Show the following volume controls".

For me, I have "Line" and "Microphone". Click "OK".

Now it should only display the ones you just checked off.

Make sure "Microphone" is selected.

The now labeled sol republic tracks hd "Microphone" is the actual input control for your USB Microphone.

Thanks for the reply. I followed your suggestion but "microphone" is already selected under "show the following volume controls". Any other suggestions?

Would it be worth the effort to try and replace the sound card? (I don't know if the sound card even comes into play with the microphone on a USB device). As I mentioned, all was working well until yesterday. Still hear sound, both on the headphones and computer speakers, it's just that the microphone volume is way, way too low to be functional.
