Solved! Steel series arctis 1 mic not working

Feb 2, 2021
My steel series arctis 1 mic is detected, but it all it does is produce a static noise, I bought this headset an hour ago.

This is the wireless version btw.
That's a removable mic on the headset, I'd guess you did not plug it in all the way. Try re-seating it. If it's tight in the plug, test it with a few other things. If the issue happens on every device, exchange it.
