Question USB Headset Mic not working, but works when plugged directly into audio jack.

May 2, 2020
So I bought an Arctis 1 SteelSeries headset.

The headset mic is unresponsive whenever it is plugged into the headset. This had me believing that the mic was just faulty. However, when I plug the mic (it detaches from headset) directly into the microphone jack on the from of the PC, it records just fine.

I've double checked to make sure all privacy settings are correct and that does not seem to be the issue.

Any help is greatly apprecaited.
