On Windows check the privacy settings on the microphone.

On Windows11 if you notice low audio drive levels, please check the following settings:

In Windows 11 there’s an option to “Enable Audio Enhancements”, and if you select it, it interferes with the USB microphone headset levels because it has its own audio enhancements. Once I unchecked the option everything works fine now.

The option to unchecked is CONTROL PANEL | SOUND | RECORDING, select the microphone you want to configure and select PROPERTIES. Once the properties screen appears click the PROPERTIES tab, and then ADVANCED. There’s a section labeled SIGNAL ENHANCEMENTS and there’s an option labeled ENABLE AUDIO ENHANCEMENTS. (Tnx Bob! 🍺)
