I saw many posts on the internet in which people were facing problems in their mic. There HyperX Cloud Alpha Mic was too low or quiet. Mic plays an important role in gaming as well as for calling.
If only the headphones are working and the mic does not, it can ruin all the experience of gaming.
HyperX mostly makes reliable and tough products that are not easily liable to faults but due to excessive usage and not checked more often causes damages in the components. Mic problem is most common as many people face it.
We will see why this problem happens and what can we do to sort it out.
Check the settings
Your settings might have been changed due to which the mic becomes quiet. For checking the settings, you can go to the settings.
Check here the actual mic volume. You can change the settings from here. On the levels tab, you can see a “Mic Boost” checkbox. turn it on and you can see a difference in the working of the mic.
Check the drivers
The issue might be associated with the drivers. The drivers might not be installed for the required function. Go to the control panel and see if the audio drivers are installed. If not, then install them.
After installing the drivers, check if the mic is working properly. If it does, then the problem was associated with the software.
Mic or input jack might be damaged
If you do not see the problem with the software, then something inside the device could have been out of order. Probably the mic or the input jack through which the mic operates might be damaged.
If you do not find the problem yourself, then get it checked by an expert associated with the field. If the mic is out of order, get it repaired.
Check the holes of the mic
See that the mic is not covered with debris or dust particles. Dust particles make your mic work abnormally. These particles get plunged into the tiny holes inside the mic through which it gathers the sound.
Due to this reason, proper sound does not reach the mic and hence mic cannot record the voice properly. For this purpose, clean your mic properly and check it again.

Hence, the problem of HyperX Cloud Alpha Mic Quiet most probably should be associated with the software itself. If it is not the case, then your mic may be damaged.
So in this case, you can contact HyperX support to get your headset changed or repaired.
