Hello, i have a steelseries arctis 3 and when i'm in a vocal (discord, in game, etc..) people hear the sound of my pc even if my mic is muted. I tried to plug it front and back of the pc but nothing changed.

If you're all wearing headphones how can anyone possibly hear your pc...? Can you hear their pc's, if not then they're talking pish ?!

Wearing headphones or not does not change the fact that they hear the SOUND of the pc not the pc (i mean like videos or else, everything that does sound). No i don't and they're not in push to talk. You didn't understood my problem i guess.

Hello,

its it possible to get one of your friends to record what they hear on their end then email it to you so you can drop it here?? It could be EMI (electromagnetic Interference) that they are hearing

I will take an example, if i listen to a youtube vid they will hear exactly what i'm hearing so the sound of the video like if it was them that was listening.

Check under sounds > recording devices that 'Stereo Mix' is disabled. If it is, a screenshot of the recordig devices window might shed some light on it.

Would have been nice if it was that easy ... next I would try to establish if it's the headphones or a software issue.
Either try playing a video and look at that gauge next to the microphone in the recording devices list or in the windows settings under system > sound > input; if there is anything on these gauges the headsets may be faulty and sending audio output back into input.
Alternatively you can try going on a voice call with your friends, play some sound and completely unplug your headset. If they still hear your audio after unplugging the headset it's a software issue/misconfiguration.

Yeah... I don't use the software from steelseries (i tried to use it to see if it was fixing something but no). I did that and the gauge of the mic was moving like the gauge of the headset while i was muted. I did unplug only the mic (pink jack) while i'd let the green one and the gaug was not moving anymore. I join a screenshot though, my headset is recognized as a speaker when i plug it to the back.

Have you tried unplugging just the green one to see if the gauge stops moving if the headset doesn't get audio output anymore? If that is the case I would recommend contacting steelseries support to get it repaired/replaced, because at that point I suspect a fault in the headset (maybe miswired or something).

One last thing I just noticed is that the Arctis 3 seems to have a detachable cable. Maybe try unplugging it on the headset side and leaving both plugs in the PC and see if it still duplicates the sound. If it does only the cable might be broken.

Does the same behavior happen if you use the front jacks on your case?

Then it's unfortunately the headset itself that causes the feedback. You could try the headset on a different device/PC if you have access to one, just to be sure, but I don't have high hopes for it anymore.

Y, i told it on the post ^^
Sorry, I did read it a little bit fast while commuting so I didn't notice.

Then, as @DarkDreams said here

I'd check if reseatting the plug on the cans help. I wouldn't put my Astros above such an issue if the cable weren't to be correctly plugged.

But does the Sound Panel bars behaviour change while moving the plug?
A kludge way of checking this would be starting some music and monitor the bars while you move the plug around. If at any point the mic stops reacting to the music (but still reacts to your voice), there may be a mismatch between the plug and the jack contacts.

So, you have somewhere plugged incorrectly cables or mixed up settings with recording device or discord output device.

Every cables seem ok and i used default periph (so windows settings) and i only have 1 possibility for headset and mic so can't be this one

Hello, i have a steelseries arctis 3 and when i'm in a vocal (discord, in game, etc..) people hear the sound of my pc even if my mic is muted.

Try this:
Discord Settings>voice&video>turn off automatically determine voice sensitivity and adjust the slider if necessary lower mic volume.
