Adjust the Mic Input Level in the soundcard’s software/audio input device.

This microphone will NOT clip onto your clothes, like a lavalier. Rather, the clip is something that you simply slide onto another wire. There's also three mini-clips meant for helping it attach to a length of wire and not get tangled, but the mini-clips come off on their own very easily. However, the main clip would never come off unless you deliberately pulled on it.
This mic a very light piece of plastic-- too light to break or crack should you drop it on the floor. The only way to damage this would probably be accidentally stepping on it. I've had this mic for over a year (since 10/2012), and there hasn't been any issues yet.
This may be a pro or con-- the cord is very long, perhaps 10 feet. It could easily get tangled, and the wire itself is fairly thin. The width is analogous to Apple earbuds (standard issue with iPods). They obviously wouldn't rip with regular wear-and-tear, as long as you show them some semblance of care.
Would I recommend it? Yes, I would. I use this mic for gaming (on Skype with friends and in-game VOIP), and it serves its purpose very well. Obviously, there are better mics out there, but for around ten dollars, this is a pretty good deal.
NOTE: All the outside audio came from my computer's speakers. The audio bitrate of the demo was 192kbps. The mic itself was set to 100 loudness and +20 dB boost (from the "Sound" section in the Control Panel).
-cord is also pretty long! Should suit most anyone's needs.
-for earbuds and other small corded headphones, there are little clips along the cord of the mic to hook onto the headphone cord! Cool feature to keep the mic cord from flopping about!
Clipping the mic to your headphone cord doesn't really work very well..your friends will barely be able to hear you. I had to macgyver up the mic to be in front of my mouth so my friends could hear me, and even when I did, the sound quality was so bad that my friend got fed up and bought me a better mic.
I decided to make sure it wasn't my motherboard sound card. I borrowed a USB sound card from work just to verify (just a cheapo USB to mic and audio out sound card). To my surprise, this made a HUGE difference. I still have the issue with the clamp not attaching to my headphones without being shimmed, but the recording quality is way better now.
I guess, if you had the same radio quality issue as I did, look into a cheap-o USB sound card?
Sounds like garbage.
I have another higher end mic I bought to do some more professional recording but wanted to get a mic to add to my Sennheisers for some occasional gaming without using the other. This looked good and has a lot of great reviews. I wasn't expecting this to match my other mic, but I was expecting to hear myself without being overpowered by background static.
1) Does not clip onto the cord of my Sennheiser 439 headphones. The clip is made for thicker cables and I had to shim it with about 4 strips of electrical tape to get it to hold.
2) At it's position on the cord (tried various levels between my chin and chest) I have to raise the mic level in windows to max (100) with max boost (30db) to even here myself in the mic. And at that I am overpowered by the static in the background. The only way I could get a decent sound out of it was to manually hold it an inch from my mouth with the same 100 and 30db boost settings, but then I'm sitting there holding a mic in front of my mouth and not having it clipped to the cord.
3) Do I really need another? It doesn't attach to my headphones and sounds like crap.
1) Uh... It does record.
2) If you like listening to poorly tuned radio static, this mic will work great for you. That's exactly what it sounds like; radio static mingled with your voice.
My other mic is a usb mic that sounds great. Maybe I just got a bad example of this particular mic, maybe my front mic jack and rear mic jack on my computer are both garbage (but I doubt it). But I cannot concur with all of the positive reviews this mic has received here on amazon.
I would say the only thing that annoys me about this microphone is that the cord is so long. I have to wrap it around both of my monitors so the cord isn't laying. But then again, this is more about the size of my current desk.
