Hello Recording.org, recently I got my hands on a Shure X2U pre-amp and a Audio Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset. Now the only problem is for this type of headset, background noise and other problems should not be an issue but for some reason it is and it is driving me nuts especially for the amount of money invested here. If you need anymore info, let me know! Thanks again Notes: I am using this for live video game commentaries, my breathing is picked up and also clicks on my mouse. My keyboard is not picked up nor is the sound coming from the headphones. Mic pre-amp gain is on full blast while windows "recording" is set to bare minimum due to white noise if too high.
