Maxxter Microphone is Picking up Sound from Headset

  1. So, to get the easy thing out of the way, this is what I tried already:

    - Disabling microphone booster (Works, but mic is to quiet. So MIC booster is required)
    - Using other headphones (Also works, but is really annoying, wanne fix this)
    - Muting all other sounds (Dident work)

    I got these PC specs on Windows 8.1:
    Processor Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU B800 @ 1,50GHz 1.50 GHz
    Installed RAM 6,00 GB
    64-BIT operating system, x64 based processor

    Ill explain the problem:
    If purchased a headset, its from Maxxter and it is really good! Only problem is that is I skype with my friend, then can here everything from music to games! All the sound that I am hearing, they are hearing to! Only thing they dont hear is themself! If tested this on different people, and like I sad, with a other pair it doesent happen.

    I need to fix this, cause im a youtuber and that is so annoying! So please respond fast!

    Disabling microphone booster (Works, but mic is to quiet. So MIC booster is required)... You may be over-driving the mic. You can't turn up the mic through Windows instead of using MIC BOOSTER?

    What about turning up the mic in Windows, without mic booster installed at all?

    I am using windows! No mic booster at all. Windows has an option to boost your mic! Its a setting of WINDOWS

    RickyMan is right (continuing miseries of Windows--I cant afford an Apple)
