Hello

I've recently purchased the G930 Headset, and well it's good so far... Apart from one Feature that was clearly stated on the box.
Noise Cancellation. It's suppose to cancel any background sound, and only makes your voice heard. But nope.. I can steal hear my typing and clicking when I record my voice and playback it.

So with anyone with this headset, does your noise cancellation work?


thanks

Ongoing issue with these, unfortunately the Noise cancelling seems to be a bit iffy, I love the headset but that tended to be an issue, got all sorts of background noise, surprising what it can pick up in my house.

You can try turning down the mic gain etc. so it doesnt pick up so much ambient noise, but I don't think I've ever seen a "Noise cancelling".

Oh and btw, watch that charging port they're known to get wobbly and useless after awhile. seems like sub par soldering work on the board it connects to.

Hmm Yeah, I tried turning my Mic Volume, but my friends couldn't hear me well, so I had to turn it up :P. 
Hopefully the noise cancellation hasn't been updated into the newest drivers or something.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be careful with that charging port.

Isn't noise cancelling only generally useful for constant noises like background hum from motors?

Not sure, but I assume it's suppose to cancel out keyboard typing, etc.
