Question about Motorola Mobility HS820 Consumer Headset

Mic doesn't work

No one can hear me unless I take the unit off my ear and right against my lips.That's the only way others can hear my voice but as you might have guessed it,this is not very practical since then I won't be able to hear anyone,LOL.

Re: Mic doesn't work

Is anything blocking the mic? Maybe there's a sensitivity setting on the headset or the phone? I'd recommend connecting it to a Bluetooth Enabled PC and try recording with sound recorder to test the sound quality/volume. If it's ok on the computer, it's a problem with your phone. If it's still quiet on the computer, I'd recommend you send the headset away for repairs/replacement of defective device.

I can hear out speakers but can't talk with mic

It's probably a bad mic issue. Try taking it back to where you got it from and see if they can help.

Friends hear echo when headset is on in x-box live party chat

I had the same exact problem with a brand new x32 headset. right out of the box it was echoing for my friends. Also, if I muted my mic it would kill the chat volume (ie barely even audible). I switched the voice to play through speakers and it worked flawlessly after that.

Not sure if it is a hardware issue with my controller (my other headset worked just fine) or if it is a defective cable I received, or a design flaw with the x32. If you are looking for a work around, try setting it to play through speaker.

I am having troubles with my Turtle Beachs X1s

You may have kinked your controller cable when you moved all your Xbox stuff. You might as well get a replacement controller cable--Turtle Beach sells them for only $4.95 on their website. I'd recommend the newer white one since that looks to be a lot thicker.

My turtle beach x1 stopped working

What happens if you try your X1 on a PC instead of on your Xbox? That's a good test of the mic... Here's how:
- Plug the X1 USB into a USB port on your PC. - Plug the X1 green plug into the green Line Out jack on your PC. - Plug the X1 pink plug into the pink Microphone jack on your PC.
Try recording the sound of your own voice on the PC, using Sound Recorder or whatever. Do you hear the sound of your voice? If so, your mic is working and the X1 chat/controller cable is probably broken. Replace the chat/controller cable.
If not, then the X1 mic is broken and you should contact Turtle Beach for service at

Computer wont recognize the microphone on the turtle beach x4

Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help.

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

Logitech headset, new vista operating system

either the headset is not supported by Vista, or you need to right click on both speaker icons, normally coloured red and black and in the properties you need to see if your headset is listed as one of the microphone input devices, if you need to make the Logitech headset the default mic and not the windows generic mic. If you do not see it in the properties then it may not be recognised by Vista.
