20 Most Recent Labtec Microphone Microphone Questions & Answers


This type of audio feedback loop can happen on any mic if you are playing back audio at a loud volume on speakers that are close to the mic while the mic is on - which tends to happen on Skype calls. Try lowering your speaker volume or using headphones to hear the audio, then speak into mic, and the feedback should be reduced.

  • Have you opened your C- media mixer to make sure the mic input is not muted and make sure the volume level is up? You can go to advanced controls and select it as the displayed unit if it is not initially displayed. This link can get you to your download should you need it. http://labtec.custhelp.com/app/answers/list

Go to your sound preferences and find "Output Audio" and set it to whatever option you like.

In addition to the instructions below you may need to make sure you have selected the right sound source (normally WAVE) in your recording program



Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

as long as there is a "mic" plug on the PC then yes it will.

Check the Device Manager to see if it is discovered and connected with drivers installed. Otherwise, install the disk that came with the microphone to install the drivers. If it didn't come with the disk, reboot your computer with the microphone connected to the computer - upon boot, the computer should prompt and let you know a new device has been found and will install the drivers automatically.

If you are using skype, go to the upper left hand top and click on call. Then click on audio settings and make sure your microphone is listed as the mike to use in the window of the drop down menu. It should say logitech something in the window that says microphone.

Just plug it into the mic input on the sound card. All recent operating systems support it by default.
