I have been told whilst gaming that my mic sounds bad and lots of static from it. Im no big gamer so although I could live without a mic it seems everyone has one whilst I have been playing Arma 3 Beta this past week, whi h I must add is truly epic and is extremely realisistic and can't believe its not even the full game yet. Actually makes BF3 look pathetic. Anyways.... Never used a mic on Windows or Mac side before but did find an old mic kicking around that is small and clips to your shirt, however in bit sure if I am doing it right. The mic i have is a jack connector and didn't even know where it goes. I plugged it into the jack point beside the my headphone point in my 2012 MBP. I have used without the mic using instead the build in mic in the MBP and it is the same, so maybe the jack mic didn't work at all and was picking up from the mic in the MBP? Anyone have any ideas if I am doing things right or if I need a new mic if so what should I get. I don't want some serious looking headset just the same sort of mic I have already. Although surely the build in mic should work right? What even is Static?
