I'm using the Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones with the built in microphone and I'm plugging it into a laptop that has a jack that supports the mic & speaker at the same time. By default, I can't hear my own voice which is very annoying. I found two different ways to hear myself through the headphones.
- Go into the Recording Devices, Open the Microphone properties, Click the Listen tab, and listen to the microphone.
- I can hear myself, but there is a terrible delay which makes this option unusable.
Go into the Playback Devices, Open the Speakers/Headphones properties for the Bose headset, click the Levels tab, and unmute and turn the microphone and volume all the way up.
- I can hear myself without a delay, but only with the volume all the way up. If I'm using an app like Join.me, I can turn the app volume down to compensate, but if I get an email or something that causes a Windows sound it's so loud that it hurts my ears.
Is there another way to hear myself without having the volume all the way up?
