Question about Plantronics .Audio 340 Headset

1 Answer

Echo problems I've been having problems with this headset, it worked fine until a few days ago. When i plug in my headset i can hear and talk, but i get a very load delayed echo that repeats several times. I have searched the plantronics website and have found nothing useful at all, and would appreciate some help. I have done the following 1 tried both mic in ports on the front and back of my pc 2 changed the volume 3 changed the voice playback/recording type 4 Made sure nothing was muted just in case =] 5 used the "test hardware" feature under the voice tab, when i use this I can get through the microphone test with everything working fine (at least it seems like it is) but when i get to the speaker test and say something it is repeated a second later Much louder and it keeps repeating.

Re: Echo problems

Check that the MIC is muted in the volume control but not in the recording settings. This could just be feedback.

Cs540 caller hears echo

Hello, if they are hearing echo, you are speaking too loud. Or have the receiver too close and talking too loud. Or the person on the other end of the line has phone line problems.

Friends hear echo when headset is on in x-box live party chat

I had the same exact problem with a brand new x32 headset. right out of the box it was echoing for my friends. Also, if I muted my mic it would kill the chat volume (ie barely even audible). I switched the voice to play through speakers and it worked flawlessly after that.

Not sure if it is a hardware issue with my controller (my other headset worked just fine) or if it is a defective cable I received, or a design flaw with the x32. If you are looking for a work around, try setting it to play through speaker.

There is an Echo @ the other end when I am talikng with them. It sounds fine @ my end but always a problem At the recieving end????

I just figured this out for mine - unfortunately it's a little bit of a bummer -

Experiment with your volume levels. Get a guinea pig/friend to listen for the echo while they talk - start with your listening volume all the way down while they talk, and gradually turn the volume up, until they hear an echo. Knock it back down one more notch and you should be good.

My headphones work, my mic does not(at all)

Have you gone to your control panel, and found the "speech recognition" option? If you havent tried it, do that. It wil have you recite a sentence and then should conifgure your mic to your computer. I hope this helps!

I have the same problem. I bought it from a few months ago and had to send the first one back because of the same issue. However, this one did not present the problem until it was past the return window for :-(

Can't Pair With Phone

I had the same thing happen twice just recently and had to call my network and have them walk through some steps over the phone with me. They had to have me enter some numbers they gave me while talking to them and it came on. Be sure to call from a different phone than the one you are having the problem with. I also had it happen again a few weeks ago and I just removed the battery from my cell after disconnecting the bluetooth and then when I put it back together and reconnected the bluetooth it worked fine. I have had it for over a year and never had any trouble with it until this.

H700 Echo Problem.

Each party needs to keep their earpiece (listening) volume at the minimum level that is audible to reduce chance of feedback. Also, look to see if there is an encryption on/off option on the phone...this could be causing an echo in either state due to interference...try switching encryption on/off. Also, check your update options on the phone, you didn't say which kind of phone it is but some can get firmware updates that may be needed for bluetooth to work well. Finally, you may get results by deleting the device on the phone and re-adding it thru discovery.
