Where is the microphone in the 8KX?

I can’t get my microphone to pick up my voice unless I speak really loudly. How do I get the mic closer to my mouth? Where is it placed on the headset?

I would think it’s right below the IPD adjustment wheel.

There’s a tiny hole there and there’s also a cutout for it on the sleeve.

They probably moved it (from below the nose area) to get rid of noise when breathing.

You may need to use software like apo equalizer as pimax is using windows usb audio. Other usb mics that do not use there own driver often suffer low volume.

Hello,


The mic is located at the bottom of the headset, you may check the blue circle on the photo.

Currently you can only adjust the mic volume via default window mic setting.

Sincerely.

Hopefully they are able to come out with some nice on Pitool.
