[img:IMG_1456.tof.JPG] So i just received my Modmic and the only difference i saw from the advertisement was the cap of the base clamp. It's a full plastic and black cap i know it isn't a major difference but i'm wondering if there is a difference or why there is one.
UPDATE: I've been testing out the Modmic and the quality is not close to what i was expecting. There might be a chance i have a faulty mic or my soundcard is the issue. My mother board is Asus P9X79 PRO if that helps. My results came out with very stuffy audio and it isn't close to as clear as seen in reviews. If anyone knows how to fix this issue it would be a great help!
I have the P9X79 Deluxe... Great motherboard!
It was mentioned several times on this thread that many Asus motherboards have issues with this mic. If you check out Antlions website, they also state the Asus motherboards with Realtek chipsets and Asus Xonar soundcards have issues with this mic. Antlion provides a link to a possible solution:
Another simple fix is a cheap external USB soundcard. They can be picked up on Amazon for ~$5-10. They may not have cool features like the onboard audio on your motherboard does (in all honesty, the onboard Realtek is garbage), but it will work without issue AND it will allow you to use your headset with a laptop as almost all laptops have a single headset port.
Thanks it's great to see someone that can help, I've already tried the video and i was wondering do you have any USB sound cards that you would recommended? I don't mind dropping another $5 to get the best quality of the microphone.
Sabrent makes low cost, high value USB sound cards ($6-9 on Amazon). You have lots of options however, especially depending on the rest of your setup and intended use. If you're looking for a cheap, simple fix then the aforementioned Sabrent would be perfect. However, if you're also using nicer headphones, using the mic for recording, or anything other than normal headset use, you may want to consider a higher end option. That "higher end" option would greatly vary based on specific usage and budget though.
