Microphone Noise Feedback

Mx. QuillMx. Quill I now prefer "Myr. Quill", actually...{They/Them}Registered User regular
Starting with my friends and I playing Overwatch yesterday, they've been telling me that they occasionally hear some weird tapping/popping noise coming from my headset with regularity. Aside from Overwatch, I've not installed anything new (and even then I think that was just patched rather than installed; had the files from the open beta). I've tried uninstalling my audio drivers, and it persists. I've tried system restoring back to before the noise cropped up, and it's ongoing.

I think it's just the headset, which sucks since I bought it about four months ago. Anyone else have an idea what it might be?

    What kind of headset do you have? How are you connecting it to your computer (USB or 3.5 jack?)

    It's a HyperX 7.1, USB.

    Is it the Cloud II?
    There is a firmware update that you can find here that might fix the problem. You can also try just switching usb ports.

    I did try other ports, but I didn't know about the update.

    And yes, it's the Cloud II.

    Edit: Seems like that's done it. If it comes up again I'll just try a different headset. Thanks.
