Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A headset microphone is considered a necessity nowadays as microphones for PC enable the end user to integrate video games, listen to audio clips and allow conversations with another user. Here are a few tips to use a microphone:

First of all, while purchasing a microphone, you need to choose that microphone which corresponds with your device. For example, if you plan on using a headset for playing video games, then you need to purchase a microphone which is compatible. In case you are purchasing a microphone for simple PC usage then you need to buy one which fulfils your task.

After getting hold of a microphone, you need to check its plug and determine whether it is a USB plug or a normal stereo plug. In case of a stereo plug, simply plug the pink plug into the microphone port and the green plug within the port supporting your speaker. Once both the chords have been fitted, you may begin making use of your microphone. Make sure that while fixing the chords; plug the green colour into the green socket and the pink chord into the pink socket. In case you mix and match the colors, then your microphone would not function.

A headset should be worn like a normal headphone. While positioning the headphone, simply ensure that you minimise the boom of your microphone and position it right underneath your mouth. Next, you would need to check the volume by simply sliding your hand onto the wire of your microphone. Adjust the volume control and ensure that you switch off the mute button.

While operating the speaker phone on your PC, you need to make sure that you adjust the volume settings by simply making use of your control panel and ensure that the adjustments in your speakerphone and PC are perfect. Thereafter, you simply need to initiate the application which needs the use of a microphone. Thereafter, you need to simply initiate a conversation using your microphone and check whether the other person can hear your voice and vice versa.

While using your microphone, it is very important that you keep it clean at all times. Dust and grime have a habit of clogging the speaker phone and it even clogs your earphones. So, in order to ensure clarity of speech and hearing, you need to clean your microphone at all times. You may do so by dusting it with a clean soft cloth. For a detailed cleaning procedure, you may get hold of a liquid solution for your cherished microphone for PC.
