Razer kraken TE - Mic is listening in on me.

Yo lads. Bought myself Kraken TE like a week ago and today I decided to connect it to Synapse as i wanted to get the surround audio.

Connected the headset, updated synapse, got myself 3 gosh darn new audio outputs (Kraken Game, chat and THX Spatial Synapse)

And what happens next is super weird:
My mic is picking up everything, even the creaking of a door. Why it is weird? ALL OF THE OUTPUTS AND MICS HAVE TURNED OFF "LISTEN TO THIS DEVICE" in windows!

so it forcibly listens in on me, 100% sensitivity, i can even hear my breathing through the mic. Wich makes me so damn distracted.


I have checked the interwebs and can't find anything about the topic. I can hear myself in the mic, music sounds like absolute bull, games also. I can't use those headphones right now, everything was fine until I connected to Synapse, but in Stereo... I've swapped from a 7.1 to Krakens in hopes of them being better with THX, not worse!

You're my only hope on fixing that issue lads, thanks in advance!

Hello there! Thanks for posting this to our support thread. Have you updated the headset's firmware recently? Please send me a PM together with your headset's serial number so I can check its available updates. Let's continue there.
