    My headset is great it sounds amazing but the issue is with the feedback I get from the mic. It buzzes and makes some terrible noise. It's not the headset as it's fine on the ps4 it's just the pc. I've updated the drivers and tried with usb and with the usb and 3.5mm jack.
    Any ideas?

    Have you tested in different applications as well?

    You say it's feedback, I take it that means it changes if you move the microphone? Does it vanish if you mute the sound output on your PC (i.e. record then unmute then play back)?

    I can't hear it my end unless I'm on the audio properties or I decide to stick it on listen. I run a podcast thing and it picks this high whing noise up (not.my.voice) on the podcast
    Also in bf4 it's terrible

    Hmm, if it's not being broadcast to your headset or speakers it can't be feedback.

    Do you have any other microphones on the system (built into the screen etc.)? You could try selecting that particular input to record from rather than everything.

    Some motherboards do have ropey microphone inputs, but if you can put it through USB then it's arriving as digital data and wouldn't be affected this way.
