Several of my friends are GameStop store managers, and Microsoft and GameStop have given all Store Managers a free Kinect, at least in the USA.
One major issue they have been having problems with is volume control. Apparently the Kinect takes a few moments to evaluate the level of volume in your voice and then adjusts.
One of my friends is soft spoken. When he starts to speak he speaks very softly so it is difficult to hear him with his first few words, and then BAM,Kinect automatically takes him from a soft volume, to a volume that makes him sound like he is talking way too loud.
Several of his friends in MP games have asked him to turn it down, so he tried by talking medium to loud to get the Kinect to adjust down, but it doesn't work.
He has re-worked it in the Set-Up but keeps getting the same problem. Several others I know have the same issues.
I am curious, those of you who have Kinect, when you play or talk online, does any of your friends complain about the Volume jumping up, or you being too loud? Even when you adjust it or redo the Set-Up, does it still happen?
