Echo in hs850 headset

When I am talking to others on their cell phones while using my headset, they complain that they can hear their voice echoing back to them. Several people have told me this. I tried changing the volume on the headset, but it didn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

Re: Echo in hs850 headset

You did not say what phone you are using but I found that this problem went away for me when I changed a setting on my blackberry. I turned "encryption" off in the bluetooth settings on my blackberry 7100t and solved the echo problem. Alternatively, there might be a "compression" setting also. This one made no difference for me but might for you on your device. Also, make sure any firmware or software updates for your phone have been applied. On blackberry devices you do this via a PC. On cell phones it usually involves a reset or update from some buried menu options or call to their tech support. good luck.

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.

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." "The most likely cause is either a plug that isn't pushed all the way in, or gunk on the plug."!1pUP4M-J1d781v7Ac0Ta8FDw!158.entry "If you hear echo, then... someone in the chat session... needs to clean off their metal headset plug."

Plantronics CS55. When using the wireless headset

Echo is usually caused by the transmit (speak) level on the unit being set too high.

1. First, try lowering the volume of the telephone. If you still hear an echo, adjust the volume of the headset itself.

2. The master transmit controls of the headset are the ABCD switch settings on the bottom of the base. A is the lowest and D is the highest setting.

3. You can fine tune this setting with the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the back of the charging base.

4. If this doesn't fix the echo, try moving the configuration dial on the left side of the charging base. The recommended setting for most phones is 1.

Problems with my motorola hs850

Set your volume to mid range. If it continues you'll need to return it or exchange it. The voice pickup sencer in the bluetooth is defective. Or the phone needs an upgrade.

Echo when using HS850

It might be a problem with their sound setting. If their speakers are on while using the mic, they might get some feedback that could be the cause of the echo. They may even just have to tweak their mic settings (through the control panel sound options or their soundcard options).

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.
