Re: headset microphone

If you can't hear other people it might have to do some router settings. I know you have to have the remote that comes with the original earphones. so plug headset into remote then plug remote into psp. I don't have the remote and I hear people but my mic doesn't work. Hope that helps.

Controller giving feedback?

If you are not using a microphone, then you are not the feedback source.
That being said, a blue-tooth headset still qualifies as a microphone, and is capable of generating feedback.

If using blue-tooth, then switch to a standard wired headset to determine if the feedback diminishes.

Regardless of headset type, be sure to have game chatter through the headset only setting as opposed to through the TV speakers, and keep the TV turned down. There will be an obvious lag between TV speaker and headset microphone which can create a feedback loop.

If other gamers can hear your TV when you are talking, then the TV output is too loud and will create feedback opportunities.

If none of the above applies, then the feedback is generated elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

My Turtle Beach Headset P11's are brand new, everything is plugged in correctly, as I can hear my friends talking when in a party together, however when I talk they can barely hear me if they can even...

Double check that you are all in the same party. If you are not in the party and they are you will sound very quiet to them. It almost sounds like you are in the background. So go and make sure you can join the party. If that does not solve it go into your settings and double check that mic volumes and everything are all up.

My USB headset (Wintech...China) won't work with GT5. It works perfectly in PS3 chat and in audio device settings (menu). In game i can hear people talk but they can't hear me. Chat indicator...

Hi, this may not be super helpful but the only thing I can suggest with this problem is to go to your game options and see if you can change any settings for your microphone or headset through there. If you are still unable to find a solution try to unplug and reset everything.

If you still are having the same issue I suggest contacting either the headset's manufacturer for technical support, or the Playstation technical support.

I hope this helps

My ps3 head set has said paired but not working , why . this 2 one ive got same problem.

The headset only works for games that support headset communication.

With that in mind, after you successfully pair a Bluetooth headset with your PS3, you need to verify that it's currently being used by the system.

- - - - - - - - - Skip this section if you've paired the headset already - - - - - - - -

To verify that the headset is paired, go to:

XMB (main menu) > Settings (second icon from the left) > Manage Bluetooth Devices (5th icon down) > [name of your Bluetooth headset] under Device Name with a blue dot next to it

-If you don't see your headset under there, select "Register New Device" on the bottom of the screen and follow the prompt

-If you see the device name, but the dot to the left of the device name is black and not blue, turn on your headset and on your PS3, highlight the headset device name and press the Triangle button and select "Connect"

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Finally, to verify that your headset is being used by the system, go to:

XMB > Settings > Audio Device Settings (7th icon down)

From here, make sure that the Input Device shows the name of your headset's device name- if not, highlight Input Device and press Up and Down on your controller to select the headset.

Next, you will do the same thing for Output Device- select your headset device name if it is not shown.

Once your device name shows in both Input and Output Device areas, you can talk into the headset and you should be able to hear yourself. Adjust the microphone volume by changing the number next to "Microphone Level". The bars on the top of the screen in Audio Device Settings should move and respond to speaking into the microphone.

Finish by selecting OK on the bottom of the screen to save your settings. Don't hit the Circle button or else the changes may not save!

I play with my friends and the say i cant hear you but i can hear them the microphone is on but when i go to audio settings it shows nothing is specking

It could be the microphone, they break after a a bit of use. Either that or the security settings on your account. Your best bet is to try borrowing a friends working headset to see if its just your headset, also try a different controller if you can.
If neither of those work, something in your settings is preventing talking. When I played with my brother, before he turned 18 we had problems with communication due to parental security stuff.

Activate mikrophone on ps3

•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 4. 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. I will add info on that as it comes in.
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.

3. Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble with a headset after it is paired with the PS3, there are a few things to check first:
•Make sure your headset battery is charged and working. Be aware that some brands/models will need to be paired again after each recharge. It's not a problem, it's just the way those models work.
•Make sure your controller is charged. Lots of strange things happen when the controllers don't have enough power, like dropouts and headset interference.
•The headset should be set as the input/output device from the XMB.
•For Bluetooth users, make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices in use near your PS3. Also try to eliminate any other radio frequency interference if possible.
•For USB users, make sure the connection is secure and there are no wire breaks.
•Update your console to the current available firmware

Bought several pairs of wired eaphones fo son ash can hear his friends but they cannot hear him have phoned customer service team to solve the problem but not solved

Most likely, it isn't the wired headset that is the problem. It may be the controller. If you haven't already, try testing the headset with another controller.
Since hearing and voice are two separate functions, it may be that the controller is only able to send out sound, but not able to pick it up. Test it out with another controller, and hopefully it will work.
But may I suggest a common issue that is overlooked:
Double check the microphone is not muted. (both in the settings of your Xbox 360 AND the mute option found on the wired headset. It's by the volume.) To check this on your Xbox 360 click on the "home" button (top middle part of the controller with the Xbox logo) go to settings ---> preferences. There you will see the option to mute the microphone.
I sincerely hope Microsoft already suggested all of these things though.
Also, better double check that the Microphone isn't muted in Preferences BEFORE trying another controller because if it is muted in Preferences, (which can only be done when signed into a profile) whichever controller he uses, it will be muted to do preferences being set to any controller/headset used. So please double check that it's not the microphone that is muted to start, and then double check the headset isn't muted (on the actual headset) followed by changing controller if it still isn't working.
Hope this was of some help.

The Microphone on DS Lite won't respond.

It sounds like you either need to repair the microphone or you could buy a headset with microphone and see if that works as it plugs directly into the main board.

Problem with headset

if you can't get it to work, I've found that the wiring inside the headset is very weak and loose. open it up with some screws, and solder it back on. I tried this, I know it will work, as it fixed mine, but the wire is so thin, I couldn't strip it and thus couldn't get it to stay on properly. Make sure you have a steady hand!
