How to Fix Razer Seiren Mini Crackling Noise?
As there can be several reasons for the static noise issue with the Razer Seiren X microphone, there are several solutions to fix the issue. To identify and fix the issue, you may need to do the following –
- Check if it is caused by any nearby device.
- Check the audio cable, port, and hub.
- Check the Razer Synapse software.
- Check the audio settings.
- Check if the audio driver is faulty.
Let’s start with the solution 1 below:
Solution 1: Check If It Is Caused by Any Nearby Device
If you are hearing static noise with your microphone, then the first thing you should do is check if the mic is put near any other device that is connected to a wireless network. It can be a mobile phone, router, modem, or any other similar device.
If you are not sure if it is caused by any nearby devices, then try placing the mic in some other location and recording audio with it. If you can’t hear any static noise this time, then the nearby network device is the culprit.
If you have a router beside the mic then you can use something like an iron sheet to separate both devices. It will reduce the interference between them. But the best option will be to move either the router or the microphone somewhere else.
Solution 2: Check the Audio Cable, Port, And Hub
If you still hear static noise from your Razer Seiren X microphone, then you need to check the cable and the ports on both the microphone and the output device. Ensure sure the USB port is clean and working perfectly and make sure to use USB 2.0 or 3.0.
You can try all the other USB ports on your PC to check on which port the microphone is working perfectly.
Note: Do not use a USB hub. Connect the microphone directly to the PC
Solution 3: Check the Razer Synapse Software
