Headset Microphone Only Produces Static


Jul 24, 2013
Hi guys. I got a Microsoft LiveChat Headset for gaming a few months ago, and its mic no longer works. As of a week~ ago, the microphone on it only produces static. I tried two computers, and both had the same output. The headphones on the set work fine, still. Here is an example of the static:

Is there anything I can do to reverse this? I can't really buy a new mic right now but I really need it. Thanks for the help.
