I’m asking you guys since i am sure one of you sound engineers came across this issue one time in your life. At least, this is what i hope :D

Yesterday i bought my high end gaming headset (s-series 7h) and it came with a USB Soundcard included, so i can choose to connect it with or without it, it’s made so you have good sound wherever you go.

Anyway the problem lies with its microphone since when i plug it in with the USB Soundcard enabled i get this high end pitch sound in the background which is super annoying, i cant call anyone with this. Please if anyone has a setting or a tip i overlooked please share, i hope this sound is familiar to some of you. Weird thing is, when i connect the headset without the included usb soundcard i have no noise, but the sound is so low and so bad that even if i crank up the volume to max it still sounds like i’m underwater or in a room next door.

Here are 2 samples of the noise i mean.

I hope i can ask this question here, i’ve scoured google for like 5 ~ 6 hours yesterday without a solution.. support is closed on weekends so i have to wait untill monday anyways, just figured i could try this forum.

Much love, Massfocus

Try to change USB port or swap USB cable for another one (best with filters like these from scanners)
