    Hi all,

    I have a Sound Blaster Recon 3D and I just bought a pair of Sennheiser PC350SE's, I have plugged them in and they work very nicely on the audio front, really pleased with them. However I have a question regarding the mic, should I be using the +30dB option, because if I don't the microphone sounds really low when I listen back to a recording even on 100% mic volume.

    However does using the +30dB make the mic quality worse?

    Not really used a analog headset before mainly had USB before.

    Thanks :hiya:

    The only thing really to do is set up the microphone as best you can and then play a few multiplayer games or skype etc and ask if they can hear you ok.

    If they say it's a bit distorted try lowering it to +20dB with 100% volume until you hit a sweet spot :smashin:

    I currently have my desktop microphone at 50% volume and +20dB boost.
