    i've had my headset for roughly around 8 months. just this weekend my daughter accidentally pulled the jack out of the controller while i was playing. It doesn't take much force to pull it out but i plugged the chord back in and I could hear everything clearly but could not speak into the mic. I turned of the console as well as unplugged and replugged everything and its still not working. Don't know what to do. I'm not sure if its fixable. Any suggestions would be of great help. THank you.

    i have had my headset since december 25 2008, and it broke roughly 2 weeks after. The Turtle Beach x1 headset can feed sound with good quality through the ears, but i can not talk on it. It works on and off and i do not know what to do. If anyone knows please post the answer

Your headphone mic is all right. The problem is with the sound driver you are using. Many a time the headphone jack are not properly connected so it may be another issue for not working of your headphone. Your operating system is all right check out the sound driver setting from the control panel.
Good Luck

Whenever i plug in both the headphone and the mic, it randomly disconnects my headset speakers and doesnt even pick up my mic. When i plug in just the headphone i hear sounds but it doesnt pick up mic....

You have to firstly test your head phones on another computer.... If it works in another computer than firstly update your anti virus program and then re install your drivers.... If it does not solve the problem you can re plug the cable of sound card on mother board... If problem does not solved than your sound card might have problem.

Using headphones

You can get a set of speakers that has a headphone jack on front (it will shut off the speakers when headphones are in) or you can unplug the speakers and plug in the head phones. Some PCs have a red and green jack in front - plug in headphones to the green, you should have the speakers shut off till you unplug. All else fails they make a headphone/mic extender that sits like a hockey puck on the desk, has cables to the mic and speaker jacks on back of the PC and on the puck part has a jack for speakers, mic and headphone - some switched manually by you, some switch when the headphones plug in. If you had posted the model I could see if your machine has front red and green jacks.

Speakers work with ipod not with laptop

First thing, you have plugged in to the wrong point, plug in the speaker to the headphone slot(mostly light green in color).

MIC point is specifically for MIC not speakers.

The point which works for your headphones would work perfectly for speakers.

Try a different set of headphone, if it works, then it is the headphone set.

If you get same problem with all headphones, then

If you get no sound: ensure that you have sound from speaker, if you get sound from speakers and no headphone working, then there is a problem in the headphone connection.

If you have no sound at all , not even with speakers, then check audio settings in control panel, ensure audio is not muted. If audio settings are OK, then you need to reinstall audio driver, or you have a faulty audio card.

Additionally, if it is only the mic not working then do the following:

Go to control panel and open sound and audio device.

Open volume settings and find settings for mic.

Tick off the mute option.

The mic is muted by default in Windows, that is usually the reason why it is not working.

Microphone and headphone problem


Usually when you double click the speaker icon in the system tray you'll see the volume settings for all your devices. On microphone there is usually an check box for mic boost. Set those to mic boost. Then check that all the sliders in the volumes are one increment below the top but maximum for Wave. Then set the master volume to a comfortable loudness This you can access by a single click to the speaker icon.

Next, you can go to Control Box, click on Sounds and check the settings for speakers/headphone and also for recording where there is usually a routine for checking the recording settings via your microphone made available to you.

Please do not hesitate to ask me for more information and kindly be specific if you can. I'm here to help and will get back to you in a reasonable period of time.

Hope this fixed your problem and thanks for using Fixya.

If your headphones have a single plug you cannot plug these into a regular speaker connection or headphone connction and get mic and sound, you will need a headset that has 2 separate plugs (one for Mic and one for headphone) or a splitter you can get a radio shack. Most headsets have only one plug and there are connections for both the mic and the headphones on this plug, but the headphone connection on the computer has only connections for the headphone and therefore cannot detect the microphone.
