  1. Headset Mic Not Working


    For about a month now, I have not been able to use a headset microphone. I have a tried two headsets on two different controllers and I can hear everyone, but my mic does not work. I bought a new controller with the 3.5mm jack and the issue persists with
    a different headset. Also, my network is fine since I am able to have everything work through the kinect. However, I want to use my headsets.

    I have hard rebooted network equipment and the console several times, logged out and in. Played with numerous settings and nothing will work.

    Please help.

    :)

    Just had this happen to me I can hear party yet my mic seems unresponsive... done all the checks and hard reset ( even reset xbox to defaults and reinstalled ) not banned either... problem seems to have evolved during this latest update.

    My headset and controller all seem fine other than the mic , I don't want to fork out cash on a new controller+ mic just for problem to persist.

  8. Headset Mic Not Working

    For some reason xbox decided to go with a CTIA 3.5mm cable and most popular headsets use OMTP (Only difference is contacts on cord switched) you just have to buy a cable that is CTIA or android compatible. The most popular used by apple, beats, monster is
    OMTP which is the wrong one. Just buy a new cable and all will be good

    (I struggled with this for like 4 months )

    How do you change the cable and where do you get the correct cable? It is attached on both headsets we have.

  10. make sure you guys turn Mic monitoring off in the settings. I was having some issues with my mic after the update and it was that.

    Xbox microphone issues part 3

    Make sure the headset is compatable with the Xbox. Make sure your console settings aren’t wonky, they could be prohibiting the mic from working. Is it just the mic that isn’t working or the headset all together?

    Turtle Beach / XboxOne question....

    Sorry bout that, but yes, you can use the headsets without the mic...I thought you were talking bout the mic...but yeah all headsets that have the optical output will work with the xbox one. It's just that the mics won't work and I posted a link showing
    how to fix the mic...

    Sorry for misunderstanding you there....

    X Box One Controller is muted

    Our xbox one controllers stopped working with the stereo headset (just the mic) all simultaneously.

    We tried plugging it into the 3.5 mm jack. None of my 3 controllers worked after having worked fine for months. All updated to latest firmware.

    I tested the headset on my iphone and the mic was fine there- I could record voice memos with no problems

    went to GameStop and spent $50 for the stereo headset adapter, and that allowed the mic to work again for another 30 days.



    Now the mic is stuck on mute again, the headset adapter’s slashmark icon stays lit

    gaming headset mic not working with xbox one S

    Hi. Thanks for responding. The headset which worked for the first 5 months was a BUTFULAKE Gaming Headset SL-300.
    You can hear through the headset but the mic stopped working (can still hear though). We then purchased a Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Three headset; can hear through the headset but mic doesn't. Don't know if this is true but son says when moving/tampering with
    the mic others can hear the noise that creates but when my son speaks into the mic others cannot hear him.
