Microphone doesn't work with small plug

4/20/09 I have a new Logitech Premium Notebook Headset with USB, which I am trying to use as a microphone input (with regular non-USB plug) to a karaoke stereo system. Unfortunately, I cannot get the microphone to work with a converter for the small sterero jack to a 1/4" stereo (and monoP jack into the karaoke input jack. Interesting, I can plug the earphone plug in ... and get good sound if I talk into the ear pieces for the headphones. I can get the microphone to work for a recording on my computer when I plug it into the computer using the USB converter/adapter that comes with the Logitech Premium Notebook Headset. What do I need to do to get the microphone to work? Is there a special converter/adapter? Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the reply.



    I actually talked with someone at Logitech yesterday, who said that the microphone on the Logitech Premium Notebook headset is probably not strong enough to power the input on my AIWA stereo receiver. It works fine on my computer, which is the use for which it is intended.



    From recent experience at Guitar Center, there are apparently inline devices from Audio Technica for matching microphone impedances:

    These devices appear to require XLR connections that are in cables used for audio mixer applications ... but possible solutions nonetheless.



    A standard conversion plug (stereo 3.5mm to stereo or mono 1/4" did not work) ... just not enough power from the Logitech headset microphone.



    Again ... thanks for the help.

I'm just taking a stab in the dark here but bare with me on this, I got a lot of info stored in this old head so it takes a while.

If you look at the jack for the microphone, Does it have 2 sleaves and a pin or just 1 sleave and a pin. If it has 2 then you will need an adaptor (Normaly Stereo jack to XLR). If it has 1 sleave then your going to need a preamp.

Logitech USB Gaming Headset only working out of one ear


I've had this happen twice with Logitech headsets and believe it has to do with the cheap/fine wire they use in the cables. I suspect that a good tug on the cable will snap the wire or some other internal connection.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone


Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

Logitech webcam with built-in microphone and notebook premium headset


dear fixya,

greetings.

thank you for your e-mail. however, i decided not to use the headset anymore since my webcam has already built-in microphone. i think eventhough i will use the headset, the problem regarding the noise during conversation will not go away. i think think is really the part of on-line chatting.

thank you and more power to fixya team.

sincerely,

babesky
