    Been struggling with this for years. The workaround on Mac was flawless, but the one on PC never worked for me using Virtual Cable.

    Today I noticed in PC in the Teams settings (right click Teams icon in taskbar and select settings or the 3 ellipses in top right of Teams window near your photo) you can turn it off finally!

    Settings -> Devices -> Automatically adjust mic sensitivity (disable this)

    I tested it out and my microphone is finally not auto adjusting to 100 level for the first time ever! Thank you!

    The workaround on Mac is pretty straightforward and works easily. The workarounds I have found for PC so far do not work. How in the world does Microsoft build something that doesn't work properly on their own OS? It's so frustrating. Fix this ASAP!!!

    Just wanted to bump this. It worked for me

    Workaround on macOS: create an aggregate device to "mask" the gain settings from Teams.

    Steps:

    1. Open 'Audio MIDI Setup' application
    2. In the left pane, click + symbol and choose Create Aggregate Device
    3. Ensure that the new aggregate device is selected in the left pane
    4. In the main window area, select the 'Use' checkbox for your real input device
    5. Select the real input device from the left pane and set the Master Stream input gain correctly
    5. Optionally rename the newly created aggregate device by clicking its entry in the left pane
    6. Quit & restart Teams application
    7. In Teams, choose the newly created aggregate device as the microphone device

    This has been killing me for months now. Every meeting I have to have my system preferences open and manually adjust volume the ENTIRE meeting. Fix this ASAP!
