    Headset speaker not working


    I have bought 3 gaming headsets and the speaker will work for awhile but then it stops working. The earphone part works. The chat does not. My son has to chat with his friends without the headsets, which is annoying. I can’t imagine that 3 headsets just
    stopped working. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Could it be the adapter?

    :)

    Wireless Headset Speaker Not Working

    yep i agree sounds like the headset is faulty. have you checked to see if your voice volume is up. to do this press the xbox guide button, scroll to the far right tab and select preferences, then select voice. make sure voice volume is up. give that a go
    and let us know how you get on

    If you are able to hear everything normal over other speakers then it is probably the headset. What you can do is look up the manual for the headset online to see if there's some sort of reset feature that may help it work properly again. If that doesn't
    work then it's time to buy a new one.

    Sorry for the bad news!

    Audio headphones/Turtle beach streaming mic

    So what part isnt working? Is the audio not coming out of the speakers or is the mic not working? I know some mics might need software to run properly so plugging them straight into an xbox wont work and as far as the speakers did you go into the xbox
    settings and switch the audio output to speakers instead of headset? Also the best thing i have found for a streaming headset/mic combo has been a turtle beach elite pro 2 headset and this headset doesnt have to be connected into a controller, it plugs into
    a mix amp which plugs into the xbox.

    No Dolby Atmos sound in games

    Yeah, I tried all of that, nothing works. Switching between audio formats makes it glitch and waiting a second resets it but it still only works on stereo and 5.1 but the Atmos works FINE on movies, Dolby App etc. Atmos works, just not in games. Its clearly
    an Xbox issue.

    Troubleshoot settings

    In-game audio issues when using Dolby Atmos:

    If you experience audio problems when you’re using Dolby Atmos, try turning it off:

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide and select System >
      Settings.
    2. Select Display & sound, then from the headset audio options, select
      Stereo Uncompressed.
    Frozen speaker settings after you disconnect a Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos headset:

    In most cases, disconnecting or turning off a headset/device configured for spatial audio (Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos) will return the speakers to their previous audio settings. However, certain hardware—such as wireless headsets using an intelligent transceiver
    plugged into USB—might still show the headset is connected even after it’s disconnected or turned off.

    Unplug the headset or the headset component attached to the Xbox. This should immediately return the speakers to their previous configuration without changing the headset or speaker audio settings. Plugging the headset or the headset component back in should
    restore the headset format you’ve chosen.

    If you’re still having problems switching between speakers and headset on Xbox One, check the headset/speakers manufacturer’s website for more info.

    Let us know with a reply how it goes!
