Mic Cuts Out and Clicks When I Move My Head

The same thing happened with my old headset too. The audio through the headphones work fine, but the mic stops working. The mic gets to the point where I have to keep the cord in a certain position, or else the mic crackles, pops, and cuts out. Moving my head or moving the cord causes the mic to cut out and cause a lot of loud noise for those trying to listen to me. Is this an issue with the mic? The cord? My computer? How can I prevent this from happening again? Thank you.

SOURCE: Left headphone does not work properly

Hi,

Based on your post/description, it would seem that the cable of your head phone developed an open circuit somewhere. I would assume it is pretty near the headset itself. On most occasion, it is at the very entry point where the cable goes into the headset.

Normal repair would involve opening the side casing where the cable enters the headset, cutting the cable about 3 inches from entry point, strip exposing the three or 4 wires and reconnecting inside the stripped ends. Effectively what you have done is trim the cable a bit shorter eliminating hopefully the intermittent section.

Hope this be of help/idea, Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good l;uck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Loose Mic Head

Hi intel

Aahhh the joys of second hand gear. wow, the holes have been enlarged... may be that the original screws are not fitted to it also. OR less likely, mic may have become this way from years of being pulled in and out of a bag, with loose screws the whole time. It will rattle if the screws are a loose fit, can only suggest to you at this point try and get some new screws for it. or short on that (more drastic measure) to resecure the head of the mic with a small dap of clear nail varnish about each screw head. the varnish will hold well enough, but may present an issue getting the mic apart again, this depending entirley on how much of the stuff you have applied. Less is better :). other than that, there is not really a fix. Hope this advice helps you.

regards
robotek

SOURCE: computer cuts off

Simply replace the power supply with a working one to confirm power supply problem. If the power supply is the problem than ask your grandson to open the casing of the power supply unit and see if there are bulgy signs on the top of the capacitors, and replace them with the specific ones. This problems may arise because of defective components, it might be best to leave it to the technicians to do the repair. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: how to take apart

I figured out how to remove the headphone clip without causing cosmetic damage to the headphone casing. Unfortunately for me, this was after I had scratched up the casing already. Anyway, to avoid the cosmetic damage, use some kind of plastic tool, like a plastic spoon. After pulling off the headphone cushion, you will see the aforementioned 4 slots. Carefully slip the handle end of the spoon underneath one of the slots(not through them), and apply gentle pressure toward the center of the speaker. Do this for each of the 4 slots, and the tabs should easily come loose. Hope that helps.As for figuring out how to get the headphone to work, I'm waiting for that solution myself. The right headphone is out, but the left one works, none of the wires are loose, so the damage must be from my nephew being careless with the headset cable, and probably tugging on it once too often. Don't let your 15 year olds use your headsets, if they tend to be clumsy :)

Why does my headphone audio get heard through my microphone?


Hi Matthew

I trust you are well.

Have you tried to plug your headset into the rear ports of your PC and not the front. If you have speakers in the rear and headset in the front try to swop the two around and see what happens.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

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.

Microphone doesn't work


For some reason, these types of headphones don't like to work in both A2DP Stereo headphone mode and headset profile. I know that every computer I've dealt with thus far sees both profiles as two separate devices, and since the mic is tied to the headset profile, the mono audio comes with it. Simply put, I'm not sure that there's a way to use both on a computer. I'm also pretty sure that most phones toggle between profiles when applicable. Best I can guess is that the problem is hardware related, not software.

You use headsets to have conversations over the internet .. or to have a personalised audio equipment,.
You should have used the mic to start with, as you heard over the speaker your voice,

There are two pins. One for MIc and other for the headphones.
Use mic only when recording. other times keep it muted in control panel-> sound and audio...

you can use headphone for hearing when you don want the audio stream to be on speakers., TO use so, you have to take of the output from the CPU to the headphone pin after removing the speaker pin or configuring the audio controls control panel-> sound effect manager to have sound always in both theh speakers and headphones.

This requires you to have an appropriate configuration so that all 3 pins are aptly placed fot output from the CPU.
Hope you got what you asked for!
