    Hi! On which type of peripheral are you trying to use it?
    Because, on the computers with a Audio Jack AND a microphone jack, the Audio jack only take in charge Audio.
    If you want to use Your ManO'War via Jack on that type of computer, you'll have to use a Audio/Mic Splitter cable like this one:

    It seems to me that the trouble shooting here didn't help. How recent is recent? I'd just take it back to the store you bought it from and exchange it. If that's not possible I would let Razer Support give you a hand.

    Its weird that the mic is not working even with the provided USB adapter.
    Is your ManO'War set by default on windows?
    Your headset should be recognized by default via windows but just in case, is Razer Synapse installed?

    synapse is installed. the wierd thing was. when it prompted me for calibration. the "gun fire" for the 7.1 surround was from the speakers.:joy::joy::joy:

    the only time i can hear anything was from the black audio jack plugged in. what am i doing wrong here. OTL

    is there any software i need to download? i have realtec installed.

    also. i rmb i had a software that will manage my audio pluggins. but after reformat i cant seem to find the software which i think came from the motherboard installation disc? hmm im confused now

    ps. had to reformat. cos this virus had like took over my cpu and i could not surf or do anything. did it hardcode itself to my hard drive. and made my reformat useless?

    pss. yes i know the plot thickens...omg pls helpp OTL

    I would try to submit feedback in Synapse and let them try to help you if you think that's the issue. No one knows their own programs better then the software engineers themselves. You already took a shot on Insiders, to me that would seem to be the best logical step.

    I recently bought this headset, and was having the same problem. The computer recognized that both the headphones and Mic were connected, but still the Mic wasn't working. I bought a splitter, still not working. What i found was that the Mic was muted. Not through the computer but on the headset itself. On the part where you control the volume, there is a little switch. Red means that it is muted, you want to flip that to black.

    actually. i bought a splitter too! i know about the mic "on/off" switch. but that isnt the problem. currently the mic picks up my game music? i tried a recording via the mic. and true enough i can hear my game music. and it was distorted. cos every1 ingame was saying my mic sound was bad.

    now i got a problem. and i think its the software? any1 got any recommendations? seems like man o war isnt good with the jacks for older computers that dont do well with usb for sound D:
