Solved! Neewer nw-700 too quiet

Apr 24, 2020
I recently bought a neewer nw-700 microphone.

When I had set the mic up and tested it, it was extremely quiet, not managing to get 3 bars. I then turned up the levels and boost in the windows settings however that would cause it too pick up too much background noise and I could barely hear my voice. Is there any way to increase the microphone volume without it picking up all of this background noise?

The mic is plugged into the phantom power supply and is 7 inches away from my mouth.
