Mouse and keyboard loud in mic
« on: 12:19 AM - 05/26/18 »
Anyway to reduce this? Friends complaining about the sound of the Logitech g13 keys and Logitech G502 mouse clicks.

On Xbox one. Tried using an antlion modmic but it didn't help at all.

I have the same issue lol

I used a red Dragon keyboard and it sounds like a typewriter great keyboard though

You can buy rubber o rings that fit under the keys that are supposed to help but it dosnt make a difference to mine

Yeah, for me it's mainly the mouse clicks but the g13 key pad definitely makes noticeable noise as well.

Changing mics to one that has better noise cancellation may help. Otherwise look for a mic foam/windscreen/windmuff replacement.

Seems like there isn't much more we can do to help our issue out. Anyone got any other ideas?

Yes same problem here. I use a Blue yeti mic and you here the keyboard clicks. I solved it with the most uncommon idea ever. I took an old box made of carton and cut it so my hand wrist gets to the keyboard which I put into the box, so the sound won't come to the mic.

For the mouse thats not really a great solution (Don't have the problem with my mouse).

Maybe set your Mic to push to talk? Apex allows you to do that. Or look into getting a mic with noise cancelling built in.
Xbox One X PS
XIM Apex
Logitech G502 12k DPI @ 1000Hz
Koolertron Gateron Black Switches
Zowie P-SR
Acer GN246HL
Astro Mixamp (first gen)
Sennheiser PC37X

If you are using a G13 you could try using a cheap plastic foot switch from Amazon and using push to talk with the xim.
The cheap foot switches are usually preset to "B" so it wont affect your G13 key setup.

Sounds obvious, but have you reduced the mic sensitivity?

How do you actually do this?

Is there a way to specifically do this on the Xbox itself? Seems like there isn't a way to do so with the antlion modmic 4.

For people who don't have this issue, what mics are you using?

if you can do it on the PS4 i bet you can do it on the xbox. I can type on my loud mechanical keyboard and adjust my mic sens in PS4 settings so it doesn't activate the mic
