    Product name: DX-28 Dynex Stereo Headset with Noise-Canceling Microphone Long story short, it is not picking up anything I say into the mic. I've already went into all the audio options I know on my computer to ensure nothing was muted/tampered with, and nothing came up. I can still HEAR sound, but when it comes to recording, nothing.

    Sometimes the long story is better, it helps with troubleshooting. Has it ever worked? Was anything changed since it worked last? Have you tried the mic with more then one voice program? If it's usb have you moved it to another port, or if it's a mini-jack, have you tried in both the front and back of the computer?

    Yeah, it has. I haven't had this problem before with this mic. It just... stopped working. Yes, I've tried it with other voice programs, and still nothing. Its not a USB, just 2 jacks (green & pink). Back part of computer is even worse... no sound at all.

    Can you try the headset on another computer, or try another mic on this one?

    Yeah, I've tried it on other computers to no avail. Other mics (borrowed from a friend) work on my computer.

    If that's the case where it doesn't work elsewhere, and others work on your computer, then sorry to say, but it's time for a new Mic.
