If you are using vox (voice activated transmit) go into the menu and make sure you don't have the VOX setting too high. You should be able to put the headset on... hit the "push to talk" button on the radio and transmit you audio. Turn the other radio on and make sure the radio is "keying" (tx with no auio) then make sure there is audio. If you don't have audio but the radio is transmitting.. you might have the wrong type of plug on your headset for the audio..... there are 2 plugs... 1 for transmit audio....1 for recieve audio. It could be the wrong type of plug for the jack in the radio. Regardless.. the way the headset works is either you push the "push to talk button" onj the radio OR you use the VOX function... with the vox function you just have to talk into the mic to transmit. This is what your headset is designed for. You will have to go into the menu and set up the radio for VOX. If you still have problems follow my directions at the top of this page ( check mic jack and stuff) I think you just have to set the radio up for VOX operation and set the VOX setting. You should be able to push the push to talk button and talk through the mic on the headset. If you don't get any audio that way there is a problem and you should check the jack and plug on the headset.

Hi. Suddenly the volume controls for my Sennheiser i300 headphones for iPhone have stopped working. Any ideas? Thanks in advance Paz

I thought this was another example of the proprietary world of Apple, whereas any non-Apple made or certified headphones/headsets with mic and/or volume control will not work with an iPhone or iPad (I am not sure about iPod). It took me many headsets to figure out what was going on. However, your headphones seem to be made for iPhone and sold in Apple stores. If this is the case, I will go back to any Apple store and talk with the tech people there about your situation.

What to check if Plantronics cordless mic does not work but earpiece works fine

If the party you call cannot hear you, check two things:

1- while on phone with the party, change the configuration dial on the headset base to 1. (We have Nortel phones and it must be on 1 for headset and mic to work with Nortel phone sets.)
2- Push IN on the headset volume control. Pushing IN activates or deactivates to MUTE feature on the headset.

Hope this tip helps you.

Mic not working in 6070 what should i do

Your only option is to get it replaced. First of all, try with you headset and verify that the Mic on your headset is working. This is to make sure that there's no other issue with your phone. Sometimes when the sound IC is faulty, this might happen, but in most cases, it's the mic itself. If you are not a technician or mobile repair tech, you'll need to visit a Nokia Care or a mobile repair shop to get it replace. Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Are you hearing yourself back through the headset? If so the other person isn't wearing a headset and the sound from the speakers is going back through their mic. Ask them to put on a headset (even iPod earbuds will work) and the feedback should go away.

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.

Cant talk on my ps3

ya you gota go the, assories, the system sounds, or something like that. You need to make the Logtec your mic and headset. Then it will just work, open mic no button to push on COD4. I think it may be adjust sound levels, or something to do with sounds under the assories settings.
