So i'm having a very weird issue with my ATH-ADG1 headset. If i plug it directly into my ipad and smartphone and do a voice recording everything sounds fine. If i plug it into the usb dac that it comes with on my pc and do a voice recording the mic picks up a heap of static, i can reduce the static by lowering the sensitivity but then my voice can barely be heard. I thought perhaps the dac might be faulty so i plugged a set of portable cans with an inline mic and a voice recording sounds fine. I then tried using the provided splitter cable and plugged it into my pc's audio and mic ports and i get the same static and voice issues. Plugging my portable cans into the splitter works just fine.
I'm simply cannot explain it, the headset works fine in my ipad/smartphone, my portable cans work fine with the dac and splitter, yet the headset will not work properly with the dac or the splitter cable. Am i doing something wrong here? Anyone have any suggestions?
