When I plug in in my plantronics 367 closed ear gaming headset all I hear is the sound I cant get the mic working


This is a plug-n-play headset, so no special software is necessary for it to work properly. You want to make sure the leads are plugged into the right jacks on the computer and that the jacks are live.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Trying to hook my bluetooth headset to my playstation three what do i need to do


Bluetooth Headset Setup
A Bluetooth headset has to be registered, or "paired", with your PS3 before it can be used.
Make sure your Bluetooth headset is fully charged before you begin.
Check your headset instructions for entering "pairing mode". Activate your headsets' "pairing mode" so it can be recognized by the PS3.
On the Cross Media Bar (or XMB) of the PS3 go to the "Settings" tab, then down into "Accessory Settings", then down into "Manage Bluetooth Devices".
With your headset in pairing mode, follow the onscreen instructions and let the PS3 scan for your headset. When your headset is found, follow the prompts and enter a pass key (if necessary- the default is usually 0000 for all brands). The pairing should now be complete.
If you're using a USB (wired) headset, just plug it into one of the ports on the front of the PS3 (the system should auto-detect the USB headset).
Mic Test and Volume Setting
After pairing a Bluetooth headset, or after plugging in a USB (wired) headset, return to the XMB. Go to "Accessory Settings" and choose "Audio Device Settings". You can test your headset here.
Your headset should appear as the audio input/output device. If not, just use the D-pad to highlight the Input line, then scroll until you see yours. Any microphone you have used with your PS3 will be listed, but only the current one will be available to select.
Set the "Microphone Level" to 3. You can change the level any time if needed.
Speak into the headset, and the level bar at the top of the screen should move at the sound of your voice.
You can also view a list of Bluetooth accessories you have registered in the "Manage Bluetooth Devices" tab under "Settings".
If your mic doesn't appear there then try pairing it again.
There are more ways to configure the audio input and output that can be useful:
Set the input to (your mic) and leave the output on (default)- one person can chat with the other players, and the replys will play over your TV speakers rather than into your mic. Great when sharing one console because everyone can hear the team talk.
Set the input and output to (default)- you will hear the game sound and voice chat through your TV speakers but won't be able to talk back. Great if you don't have a headset, or if you want the room to hear the team chat.
Set the output to (default) to use stereo headphones with your TV or receiver. Then set the input to (your mic) and you can chat while wearing stereo headphones. Keeping the mic close to your face could be a problem since both ears are already taken! You could try a USB desktop mic and see if that works.
In Game XMB:
All of the functions in Audio Device Settings are available when using the XMB via the PS button during a game. You can set the input/output, mic level, and device. You can test your mic, and pair a new BT headset while in game.

How do you turn the bluetooth on on a ps3 cause i cant get my bluetooth headset to pair


Turn on your Playstation 3, and from the main menu go to Settings - Accessory Settings - Register Bluetooth Device
You will be presented with two options:
Register BD Remote Control
Register Headset/Microphone/Headphones

Select Register Headset... and put your Bluetooth headset into pairing mode. On your PS3 select Start Scanning
Select your device and enter your pairing code. In most cases for audio devices the default pairing code is "0000"
Now on your PS3, go to Audio Device Settings and change your "Input Device" and "Output Device" to your Bluetooth headset name. Try speaking and watch your "Mic Level" move!


This might help you as well:)

I cant get the headset icon turned on


All you have to do is plug in the mic, go to Accessory Settings, pick the correct mic for input and output, and test whether the mic is working by talking and looking at the sound level. Then when you go online to play COD4, there should be a mic icon next to your PSN. It should light up when you speak. There is no button to push.

I can Talk and hear game sound but i cant hear game or party chat


You probably kinked your controller cable. That will cause the mic to malfunction. You should purchase a new controller cable on TurtleBeach's website. They are only $4.95.http://www.turtlebeach.com/products/efx1a/replacementparts.aspx
Also make sure you have the Xbox Live settings on "Play through headset"

Using Motorola Blue Tooth with PS3


Yes you can. Just go to accessories or audio device settings. Have your headset on and hit connect bluetooth device. The key it asks for should be 0000. If that doesn't work do a quick search online and you should be able to find one that works.
