If you notice a whistling noise in the background of your recordings in HUE Intuition and other apps, you may need to adjust your Windows sound settings to optimize them for your microphone.
If you open your Windows Control Panel and select Sound, then the Recording tab, you will be able to select the Properties of your USB microphone. The Advanced tab will allow you to adjust the default format for microphone recordings. Adjusting this setting should allow you to eliminate any background sounds. If you are hearing a whistling sound, choosing Radio quality/Tape recorder from the dropdown menu should eliminate the problem.
The same steps apply when using any other USB microphones which exhibit a similar problem.
