It's not a joke, the title. As of this afternoon, I tried getting on a conference call with some friends and all they heard was slight, muffled mumbles from my end. When I got closer to the mic (having to remove the pop filter as well), my voice was ear rape. I looked into almost everything I could find, from replugging the mic in both sides to uninstalling the driver, which now doesn't seem to work. Earlier today I was painting my room, but I don't think that would affect it as it was far away, and I haven't really even used it since last weekend. I've done nothing to it all day and I don't know what could have possibly gone wrong. PLEASE help me, I'll provide any information, I just don't want to send this thing back (I just got it around a month ago!)..

Your title to the post suggests that the microphone used to work acceptably but then stopped. Is this correct? Where does the "8-bit" come from?

As pc suggests, try a different cable and USB port, and if that makes no difference, try the microphone on another computer.

It would be valuable for diagnostic purposes if you could install a simple free DAW such as Audacity and try recording with the microphone using that. You could post short recorded extracts here using the Upload a File button so we can see what is happening to your waveforms.
