    I just got this headset yesterday off of Amazon, fresh outta the factory. Plugged it in to test it: the sound is great, the mic is waaay to quiet. The mic won't pickup sound without my mouth being directly on it.

    I called GameCom's tech support and let's just say the call was fairly short. "Try plugging it into another USB" "Didn't work" "Okay we'll send you a new one".

    I feel like there is a way to fix it, I just don't know how. When I got into sound, recording devices, the mic, levels, and there is one slider that's Volume. I put it to 100, nothing happens.

    Is there anyway to boost the microphone gain?

    There may be a gain option in the audio driver configuration.

    With that said, if they believe it's faulty, I wouldn't go about making a lot of changes and possibly messing something up.

    The OS could matter as well. Most of these "the microphone is too low" topics, are users having issues with Win7.
