  1. XBOX One Controller Headset Jack is Faulty.


    I have two xbox one controllers. However, the chat headset only works with one of the controllers; the controller that I bought separately works fine, the controller included in the box does not. How do I go about getting this fixed?

    Thanks.

    :)

    could be a faulty controller jack, try to plug into a phone or pc to check if the issue is the headset or controller

    XBOX ONE NOT PICKING UP VOICE THROUGH MICROPHONE (PARTY, MULTIPLAYER, VOICE MESSAGING OR SKYPE)

    I HAVE IDENTIFIED THE CULPRIT! It is the 3.5mm slot on the Xbox One controller.

    So I took all my gear to a friends house to test everything out on his network with his Xbox One and equipment. Synced my controller to his Xbox and had the same problem. I then plugged in his Xbox headset adapter to my setup (He has an older controller
    without the headset jack) and everything worked smoothly if I used a headset adapter.

    So, the problem is either the headset jack on my controller or something to do with the firmware that prevents the jack from being used properly. The only reason I'm hesitant to just say it is a faulty 3.5mm connector on the controller is because my mic
    is responsive to the mic monitoring volume controls on the Xbox. Then again, I'm no mic expert so it may very well be a faulty controller.

    Sucks that I need to get an adapter now to get a headset working on my controller that supposedly doesn't need one...

    I will mark this as solved once I get my own headset adapter tomorrow and have everything running smoothly

    head set not being XBOX are no longer working

    It could be that the headset is faulty now or that the jack in the controller itself is the issue. How old is the headset and controller ? What brand is the headset ?

    My xbox is producing no sound second day in a row

    Are you connecting the headset via the controller jack? It may be possible that the jack in your controller is bad/faulty. Do you have another controller to check if this may be the issue?

    Multiple Headset Failure

    It could be the controllers. The headset jacks may be worn out. Have you tried other controllers by chance? Also some headsets require additional downloads directly from the manufacturers site. Mine required an entire app. You may want to check
    and be sure nothing more is needed.
    The controller jacks don't seem faulty as in they are quite a good fit when they are plugged in.

    I would be annoyed if they were faulty as one controller is only 4 months old and the other is 4 weeks.

    Will have a look at the manufacturers website.
