    How do I get audio to play through my wired headset?


    I need help. I'm very confused. So I plug in my AUX wired headset and the controller recognizes it. But no audio is going through. Yes, the headset still works. But when I join a party, I can hear the party but that's it. I've tried powering the Xbox off as well as only the controller, I've tried unplugging and plugging in the headset, checking audio settings, and even tried contacting support and nothing helped. Also, the chat mixer is greyed out and over to the the right. (If that helps at all). I don't know what to do. I would like to be able to hear audio through it. Please help!!

    :)

    How do I get audio to play through my wired headset?

    Hello Izaiah,my name is Vanessa, I will be happy to help you.

    I understand that you are having trouble playing audio through your wired headphones on your Xbox console.

    Here are some things you can try to fix the problem:

    Make sure your wired headphones are properly connected to the 3.5mm audio port on the controller. Make sure the connector is securely inserted into the port.

    Make sure your wired headphones are turned on and in playback mode. If your headphones have a power switch, make sure it is turned on.

    Make sure your Xbox console is set to use your wired headset as the default audio device.

    To do so, follow these steps:

    Press the Xbox  button to open the guide.

    Select the Settings icon.

    Select General.

    Select Devices and accessories.

    Select Input and Output Devices.

    Select Audio Headphones.

    Make sure "Default audio device" is selected.

    Make sure your Xbox console's audio settings are set correctly. To do so, follow these steps:

    Press the Xbox button to open the guide.

    Select the Settings icon.

    Select General.

    Select Devices and accessories.

    Select Input and Output Devices.

    Select Audio Headphones.

    Make sure the "Audio Output" option is set to "Headphone Audio."

    Sincerely,
