I watched your youtube video and in listening to your commentary I didn't hear any static. Was I supposed to ? Are all the connections with the headset tight and seated all the way in ? Sometimes it feels like the pin is all the way in but if you push harder it ends up going in some more.
Some of the feeback on Newegg was in refference to the microphone and various problems with it falling apart and the boom becoming loose.
If your having issues now with having just got it I would see if it can be RMA'd and get another before more problems come up.
You did not hear the light buzzing/static?
I have the pins in firmly all the way and I re attached the boom mic.
I honestly think it might just be me getting annoyed from it, because my friends say its fine and it does not bother them
So i might just stick with it!
If i do get an RMA razer always uses a company that makes me pay stupid brokerage fees.
