Re: Microphone

It is the microphone, this happened to me. I was inquisitive and out of warranty so had nothing to lose. Fix using these steps:

1. Remove foam microphone cover
2. Slide ring collar back down the boom
3. Split open the plastic microphone unit
4. Solder any loose wires - black to the rim, white to the middle of the microphone
5. Reverse steps above to put back together

Re: Microphone

Before you go slicing thing open, check this. Remove the whole headset/mic assembly by undoing the retainer allen screw. You'll find it plugs into the cradle section with a single gold plated 3.5mm aux connector. Just like the socket on an iPod / iPhone. Look at the male connector. Chances are you may see crusty green corrosion deposits on the gold plating. I simply wiped mine vigorously with a microfiber cloth and reassembled. Good as new!

Obviously some rain / moisture had got in there over the winter. As a daily commuter it's hard to keep it out.

Why cant i talk or hear any body on my mic?

Since it is Bluetooth, you have to pair the Bluetooth to your host computer or device. Find the correct window or screen and put it into discover mode, do the same with the headset. RTFM

People can hear background noises on my PC but not my voice


Perform some simple steps as follows.

1. Double click on the volume control icon in the system tray, that is on the right hand bottom side of the screen. Check if the microphone is muted.

2. Right click on the same icon, and select "adjust audio properties." You will now get a window that says Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Click on the tab named voice on top of that window, and check what is selected as the voice recording device. Check in the drop down menu to change the device and use the "test hardware" option to test the mic.

3. Make sure your microphone is working fine. Other people are not hearing your music from your microphone, but from your system itself.

Cannot use microphone.

Hi I have had a similar problem with a Mic, too things to try , first try it on a different appliance to rule out the appliance you are using, if it still doesn't work then it's most likely a short somewhere, tough to repair but worth a shot if you have the patience.

Hope this helps.

Microphone volume

I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.

Cant talk

Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices Click on Voice Tab and make sure the proper device is selected. Click on Volume and make sure levels are appropriate. Lastly, click on Test Hardware and wait until you can speak into the mic to see the voice levels. If you can see the voice levels, then your mic probably works and it is just an issue of configing the COD settings. goodl luck
