Problems with microphone on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Hello all,
After downloading windows 10, I have recently noticed that when I attempt to talk in CS:GO, people are telling me to stop using my mic. According to feedback from friends, my microphone sounds like I have a voice changer equipped. I tried listening to myself in steam and that was indeed the problem. I proceeded to go to my microphone settings and listened to myself there. My voice appeared to be normal and I could understand myself perfectly. I do believe this issue has something to do with windows 10 because my mic works fine elsewhere but is defective in CS:GO. I have searched this issue and a handful of people have the same problem. If anyone knows of this problem and knows how to resolve it, help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Microsoft have recently released a troubleshooter for Windows 10 audio issues, might be worth a try?

Did you try turning the system mic off from privacy... as a test? I found it was mucking up the Adobe chat we sometimes use at work
