G430 can hear myself

Hey guys,

I am using a g430 gaming headset and i have 2 problems.
The first one is that i can hear myself while talking. It is not like there is a delay but it is a bit annoying.
It is not in de devices listen option i already checked that pleasse help!

Further more there is a slight crackling sound when i record/talk it is not a major issue but still.

I am running windows 8 and i installed the logitech gaming software.

Pleasse help

It is a setting in Windows. Try telling it not to "listen to this device". That works for some people.

Hey,

I bought this headset couple days ago, theres been some problems but I'm feeling like most of them are because of Windows 8.1 but anyway I had this same problem as you, here is how you can fix it:

 

1. Right click speaker incon on right side of your task bar

2. Select "Playback Devices" (Windows sound settings should open)

3. Right click "Logitech G430 Gaming Headset" and select "Properties"

4. Go to "Levels" tab, there should be 2 sliders one for speakers and one for microphone feedback

5. Set microphone slider to zero / mute

 

 

The “Microphone” volume slider and mute icon control the “sidetone” or voice feedback volume. This is NOT the microphone output volume. Disabling this helped me to get rid of anyoing background noise even when the mic was off.

 

If this does not work, go to "Recording Devices" and G430 mic's properties.

Go to "Listen" tab and check "Listen to this device", save and then uncheck it and save again.

That's the trick I had in mind.

 

Here's where to find it:

The advantage of this tactic is that it doesn't screw up other things you might want to do with the headset.
