Front Microphone Jack Not Working Properly!!

Hey, i have been having this problem for some time now and havn't really had any idea on how to fix it.

Normally when i plug in my headsets i plug the headphones into the front jack and the microphone into the back jack. However, i just got a new pair and the chord isnt long enough. I figured it was about time to get my front mic jack to work..

My problem is that whenever i plug into it, the sound gets a TON of feedback and no one can understand a word that i'm saying (my voice gets all distorted)... its really annoying.. Anyone know of anything i can do to get this to work?

Go to the Sounds and Audio Devices properties for Voice Playback Volume and mute the Input Monitor. See if that helps.

Re: Front Microphone Jack Not Working Properly!!

Sounds like you have Boost enabled on your second microphone. Find the second Mic sound applet, go into advance and disable boost.
(Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio -> Properties -> Mic2 / Front Mic -> Advanced -> uncheck boost)

Re: SB XFI headphones not working...

My issue is that my speakers and logictech headphone/mic are plugged in the rear into the SB XFi jacks...but the headphones dont work, only the mic and the desktop speakers.
