HyperX Cloud II
Belgium Divined 
Hello guys, So i just got the HyperX Cloud II headset, but my mic is reaaaaally low, and I'm not the only one who seems to have this problem when i'm searching on the internet, but no one really knows a solution. Did anyone else have this problem and did you get it fixed?

Don't use USB, plug in headset in soundcard with 3.5mm jack. What is your sound card? EDIT: Don't tell me that you don't have some extra sound card? Headsets need extra sound card, like amplifier for speakers. Also try to set your settings like this:

Nope I don't, I had no idea that was needed... And I can't bring it up, it's locked at 0 for some reason? :s..

You can use headset without soundcard but you can't feel 20% of headset. Also try to download latest Realtek: EDIT: Look at this video.. Linus explaining why you actualy need soundcard:

For some reason Realtek doesn't recognize my microphone ;__;
2015-06-12 18:10
Probably because I'm using USB i guess?

the usb works fine. we all use it in our team. Must be a setting somewhere.
2015-06-12 17:09
Don't think so man, can't find anything
2015-06-12 18:08
So, in that settings, it doesnt show the volume + Microphone boost?
2015-06-12 18:10
This one you mean? I can't change it..
2015-06-12 18:11
At least for me, in that tab it has a thing about it for Microphone volume
2015-06-12 18:17
Yeah most people seem to have it, I don't understand why I don't have it :/.

Yo man, could you tell me if the guys are using the 7.1 virtual surround or if the positional sound is better if you just leave that option off on the USB soundcard? Considering buying the headset as my onboard isn't great at all. Cheers.

i returned the cloud II because i couldnt benefit from the 7.1 sound at all so i rather saved these 20 bucks. back to cloud I now :) so imo you are better off using positional sound.

Have had it since July and just use the USB soundcard without the 7.1, it's horrible haha :P but the headset is really good overall

Check so that the microphone is pointing the right way, you can do this by removing the plastic cover.
2015-06-12 18:24
Wut? Which plastic cover are you talking about?
2015-06-12 18:28
i use the same headset and i have no problem with that. i just increase the mic boost and that's it. works pretty well
2015-06-12 18:28
Yeah, the problem is that I can't boost it :/. It's locked on 0
2015-06-12 18:29
you try to install realtek HD audio driver?
2015-06-12 19:15
Bump ;__; I contacted Kingston aswell
2015-06-12 19:07
Did you fix it, i'm having the same problem
2016-01-23 13:26
buy version 1 not usb card ffs
2015-11-28 11:17
Did you try to turn up the volume for the mic on the audio control box on the headset cord? Or try to use a different USB-port.
