The mic picks up background noises. Can't really talk to people on Skype without them hearing my games in the background.
How do I configure it so the mic just picks up my voice. I am using Win10.

Update you profile, it still shows Win7

Disable stereo mix or "what you hear" in the audio configuration.

That should take care of it for a standard 3.5mm type mic connected to the audio chipset. If it's a USB type headset or mic, then the options will be in the USB software/drivers for that headset/mic.

I have the X12's as well and there is no software with it as it uses whatever sound card/onboard sound you are using. and the USB jack is merely for amplification. It's a known issue with the background noise and the MIC and it has to do with how close the speaker-out/headset (green) jack is with the MIC jack (pink) on the headset and the interference of said. There are workarounds on youtube, but my own setup has very little of that interference so I don't use the fix.

Turtle Beach: Left Speaker Cutting Out
Right now I'm having problems with my headset. Sometimes the speaker on the left side cuts out and the only way to make it come back is to tilt my head to the right slightly, which is uncomfortable. Sometimes the issue vanishes for a while after I fiddle with the cord or unplug the headset and put...
