USB headset sound quality extremely variable?
I have a bad history with breaking mics on headsets, so I bought a cheap ($12) headset. I then just switch to it when I want to do voice calls etc. and use my old pair as just regular headphones. However, my current pair of headphones (the nice sound quality ones) just broke, and I am using the cheap pair as a replacement. I usually have issues with the sound quality (there's some nasty static whenever any noise is playing), however this morning for about an hour the sound quality was crystal clear (at the quality of my other headphones/speakers). Do you know what could cause this? Is there any way to replicate it? The USB version is no longer up, but here's a 3.5 mm version of it (I think the specs are identical/very similar). Thanks!
Well I'd already tried switching it to the other front port, so I tried the back ones (the cord is barely long enough to reach so I had to move my computer around, which is why I hadn't tried the back ones before). One didn't even register the headset, and the other works perfectly. Guess I should test my USB ports in case it's not the headset having the issues and the ports. :cray:
EDIT: 10 minutes later it doesn't work again 🙁
