Microphone goes tinny and underwater when game music plays


Thread Starter
Oct 26, 2020
I have always had trouble with friends not being able to hear me during games, through discord and other chat apps, and I think ive finally worked out how to reproduce it:
When a game plays music, or loud sounds, my voice goes quiet and tinny.
Not sure where to even start to fix it, any help?

The Zip file contains a test i did with audacity, the first half is with game running, but in the background, and second half is when the game is up and playing menu music
