Just been looking at the headphones in more detail. So the sound from the headphones is being picked up by the mic and the headphones do not have active noise cancellation.
Don't the headphones come with any noise cancelling software or is there nothing on their website? The only way to solve this quickly would be to turn the headphones down and making sure your ears are fully enclosed by the headphones to ensure little sound is leaking out, maybe try playing making sure they fit properly.
But I'm surprised that headphones of this calibre or Windows would not come with settings to "gate" the microphone sound, so the microphone signal would only be active when a sound above a certain dB is picked up. I swear to this when recording vocals with a condenser microphone to eliminate the sound of my PC or unwanted intakes of breath etc.Edited by JoeChamberlain - 6/18/13 at 8:16am
