I have 2 plugs on my Logitech ClearChat Stereo Headset Headset I have a table top computer where do I pug them

The headphone plug goes into the green jack on the computer. The mic plug goes into the red jack on the computer. The headphone plug with have three segments on the jack, the mic plug will have two, and they'll both be marked. If you're computer doesn't have color jacks, the mic will go into the one with a picture of a mic, the headphones will go into the one with a picture of a headphone or speaker.

My mic on my headphones doesn't work. Nothing is muted.

If headphones mic doesn't work on different PCs then the problem with headphones set. There are 2 possible problems: broken cord or bad microphone. I think this is cord problem and unfortunately don't know the way to test it at home.
I think replacing the cord will resolve the problem. Source(s): dont forget to rate me.... Good Luck.....

My Turtle Beach X1 headset stopped working all of the sudden

A very similar problem occured with my headphones too, short of contacting turtle beach there is little else you can do to solve this. The main problem is the wire that connects the little white sound box to the controller(commonly called the puck) the end of the wire that connects to the white volume controll box is the problem for me, the wires are really **** weak in this end. i just stripped mine down so im gonna resolve this issue and il re-post the solution to my problem here. i hope this helps you out.

Turtle beach x1 mic

I found this on the Turtle Beach website:
This test is to find out if your "Talkback Cable" has failed or the "X1 Mic". It is for the PC only not for the Mac. If it works with the PC but not with the Xbox, then your Mic is good but you need to replace the Talkback Cable.

First, make sure the X1 mic mute switch on the amplifier is turned on. Switch it back
and forth to clear out anything that might have built up on the contacts. If that's
not the problem, then try the X1 mic with your PC to see if the level is OK.
If the X1 does not work on your PC then replacing the 'Puck' will not fix the problem.

Make sure that you do not leave the 'Puck' connected while connecting to PC.

1) Take the pink plug from the X1 and plug it into the pink jack (Microphone input)
on your PC's soundcard.

2) Take the green plug from the X1 and plug it into the green jack (Front L/R Out or
Line Out) on your PC's soundcard.

3) Take the USB plug from the X1 and insert it into a USB port on the PC (not a USB hub)

4) In the soundcard's control software, enable the Microphone for playback.
In the Microphone > Advanced settings, enable the Microphone Boost.

5) Adjust the volume for the Microphone to about half-way up.

6) Adjust the overall playback volume to about half-way up.

7) Put on the headset. Make sure the Mute switch on the X1 amp box is not set to Mute
(the LED should be green).

Now speak into the microphone. Do you hear your voice in the headphones? If so, the
mic works and your X1 headphones should be OK. If you still cannot get the X1 mic to
work over Xbox Live, then you need to take a closer look at Dashboard settings and
other connections, or check the integrity of your X1-Xbox Controller Cable.


In order to enable the chat make sure that the Mute button in the Off position.
If it is on the ON position the Mic will not work.

Red = Muted
Green = UN-Muted


To find out if the Xbox Controller Cable 'Puck' has failed, you may also try the 'stock'
cable that came with the Xbox. If the original Xbox cable is working, you know you have
a cable that has failed.

Since these cables have to be lightweight so that they do not "weigh you down" while
playing, caution should be exercised not to pull them or get them caught under furniture

Here is a video showing how to test the mic with your PC in Windows XP:

My microphone will not work, and my computer won't recognize!

Common problem with this headset.

In short, the wiring for the mic in the left earpiece is quite shoddy, and over time will be worn away by changing the mic position or come loose with minimal effort.

Have had a over a dozen of these fail in our internet cafe due to this issue after a couple of months use.

Mic broke

Try using your X1 with your computer. Plug the X1 green plug into the green jack on the PC. Plug the X1 pink plug into the pink jack on your PC. Try using the headset to listen to the sound of your voice. Can you hear your voice through the headset? If yes, then the mic is OK but the chat-controller cable needs to be replaced. If not, then you should contact Turtle Beach tech support at

Be sure to select your headset when you do the setup.
Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype ( set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud
