I'm trying to redo the mansion voice mail. My headset mic records my voice so faintly that I end up nearly yelling in order for it to hear me. I've been having some trouble with my USB headset lately, so I went out and got a regular headset with mic today.

It's actually WORSE now!

I have the volume sliders turned all the way up in Sound Recorder properties and in Volume on my computer. It still doesn't help.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Does whatever voice recording software you 're using have any controls as far as input/output volume...the same question for your headsets (any dials/switches?).

If that's not the case, try opening volume control (I just right click on volume thingy on taskbar), open up properties, and check mic so it displays (if it doesn't show already). If you click on recording (under properties), then ok, it'll show a different set of items than the playback. There will be select boxes under these items, is mic selected?

Does your sound card/chip come with any utilities that may be interfering with recording/playback?? (i.e. I have to turn off my Realtek equalizer if I want to use the one in Windows Media Player).

Also I dunno if this will help, but under advanced controls for the mic is "mic boost." (open volume/click advanced under microphone/click mic boost/close)

Ummm I think that's all I got =P Good luck!!!
