Question about Headsets

1 Answer

Cannot use microphone.

Whenever i try to talk with the microphone, it only plays static so others can't hear me what-so-ever.

It was working earlier on today, just fine! but now its not working at all.
I can still use the headset to listen via the headphones, but the microphone doesn't work.

(If you tap the microphone though, you can tell that you're tapping it as there is a difference in static noise.)

Thank you very much!

Hi I have had a similar problem with a Mic, too things to try , first try it on a different appliance to rule out the appliance you are using, if it still doesn't work then it's most likely a short somewhere, tough to repair but worth a shot if you have the patience.

Hope this helps.

. Open up your control panel and double click on audio device properties. There you'll find your device settings for sound , audio , input and output device settings . You will select your headset for your audio and microphone properties . Also , follow the instructions to set up your microphone input levels .

When i move the cord on my turtle beach x1 it gives me static and the mic echos when people talk. any ideas?


I found this on the Turtle Beach website: _________________________________________
If you or other players hear echoes in Live Chat:
Does it happen if you use the Microsoft communicator? Mute the microphone on your headset. Does the echoing stop? In the Xbox Dashboard > Settings > Live, set the voice to Play Through Both and unplug the talkback-controller cable. Does the echoing stop?
Echoing can sometimes be caused by high latency ("lag") on your internet connection. This may come and go depending on how much bandwidth is being used in your area.
If your talkback-controller cable's plug gets dirty, this can also cause echoing or static. Also check the input jack on the controller and make sure no foreign objects are in there.
Read these links for more advice:
Echoing can be caused by "a poor connection between the headset and the controller." http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912493 "The most likely cause is either a plug that isn't pushed all the way in, or gunk on the plug." http://xboxelle.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!1pUP4M-J1d781v7Ac0Ta8FDw!158.entry "If you hear echo, then... someone in the chat session... needs to clean off their metal headset plug." http://majornelson.com/archive/2005/12/25/get-rid-of-voice-echo.aspx

When i turn the volume up or down i get a static noise, and when I try to use the microphone i get no response. I know the sound is working because i can hear music with static, but the microphone doesn't...


The static noise may be caused by dust! To clean it out spray some Servisol video 40 into the volume control and move it up and down. If it goes away it was just dust.
The mic is another thing. The only thing I can think off ist that it's got switched off somehow on your laptop. Or either the control panel slider for microphone input is set to low?

You can get Servisol from Radioshack USA or Maplin UK or that type of shop.

People can hear background noises on my PC but not my voice


Hi,

Perform some simple steps as follows.

1. Double click on the volume control icon in the system tray, that is on the right hand bottom side of the screen. Check if the microphone is muted.

2. Right click on the same icon, and select "adjust audio properties." You will now get a window that says Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Click on the tab named voice on top of that window, and check what is selected as the voice recording device. Check in the drop down menu to change the device and use the "test hardware" option to test the mic.

3. Make sure your microphone is working fine. Other people are not hearing your music from your microphone, but from your system itself.

Get back if you have additional questions.

Ventrilo static weird occurance


First, make sure your mike/headphones are plugged in all the way to the correct jack port.

Then, re-download and install vent.

Also, go to "setup" in vent, then make sure the inbound and outbound are either set higher or lower than the default.

Hope these help, and please rate ^_^

My DYNEX microphone wont work


Perhaps you have it connected to the speaker connection? Have you looked at the microphone to ensure there isn't possibly a mute button you have accidentally pressed?

Out of curiosity, how are the others hearing you ask if they can hear you? If you are using the microphone to ask, perhaps they are just yanking your chain?

Microphone volume


I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.

Cant talk


Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices Click on Voice Tab and make sure the proper device is selected. Click on Volume and make sure levels are appropriate. Lastly, click on Test Hardware and wait until you can speak into the mic to see the voice levels. If you can see the voice levels, then your mic probably works and it is just an issue of configing the COD settings. goodl luck
