thanks for the reply's,
Marty, the problem is that for some reason the mic's levels change without warning, usually meaning that my voice becomes screaming level and there is so much feedback/squelch that it destroy's people's ears - think the feedback noise but with the volume on 11/10ths!
Sadly this occurs regardless of setting in TS3 and the only consistent thing I can work out is the more you use TS the quicker it happens, even when no adjustments are being made. Unfortunately, in other applications the headset/mic work extremely well and are extremely impressive! There is defiantly some sort of argument going on between TS3 and the Corsair drivers. So far, I've found on Google about this but no resolutions and sadly Corsair have ignored questions about it from early January from other users. I have contacted them, but no losing sleep about a response as they've already taken my $$$ and technically the product works, it's just TS3 which has issues.
