    Recently I built a new computer, and everything looked like it was working, except my mic wasn't pickup up audio. When I tried plugging it into my phone however, it worked beautifully, so the headset itself is not broken. I then looked up and downloaded the most recent audio drivers for my motherboard, X470 Gaming Plus, and installed them twice and three times in total, with no different result any time. I've tried installing audio configuration programs, asking other websites, but I have gotten no response

    Relevant Info:
    -Windows 10
    -Motherboard: X470 Gaming Plus
    -Audio Drivers: Realtek Universal HD (latest version)

    Did you try both, back and front plugs for the mic?
    If the backport works you might have forgotten to plug in the audio cord of your case.
    Otherwise go to the device manager and check your devices. Does it recognize a mic at all?
    Check which mic is your standart device.

    I myself have a similar issue I can't resolve, but that are some points where to start troubleshooting.
