Christmas was simple this year, did not have a big family gathering. Simple is not bad though and my PC got some love. I built my current PC back in May (2011) with the base stats of Intel i5 3.2 GHz w/ 8GB DDR3 and my old 64GB SSD & GeForce GTS 250. The Holidays brought about some new additions:
- Bamboo Capture Pen Tablet
- Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930
- OCZ Agility3 120GB SATA III 2.5″ SSD
- Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600 (2×4)
So I bought a Sound Blaster World Of Warcraft Wireless Headset about a month ago for $140 (on sale). And ever since using this headset, the earphone sound is great but many of my friends on Ventrilo hate the new mic!
After toying with every setting I can think of and trying to find a solution online, I stumbled upon my own small fix. Ever see the mics with a foam cap covering the tip — like the one to right side of this paragraph? That’s what you need!
Except I don’t have such a thing so I made my own after I realized how much better the mic would sound if I simply covered it with my hand. So grabbing my scissors and snipping a small bit of foam material from a bed-memory foam thingy and grabbing some (new) toilet paper to wrap around the foam and hold with some scotch tape, I made the contraption you see below:
