Re: Microphone


To figure out which of the 4 wires go where, you would need access/use of a continuity tester (ohmmeter). You have to wing it from the ohmmeter reading to distinguish the ground/common, left, right and mic. Please refer to the diagram below.


Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Broken wire to my microphone on my lifechat lx-3000

You cant wire then directly there is a USB D-A chip that controls the headset converting to 1/8" mini plugs may work one for the mic and one stereo plug for the earcups

My DYNEX microphone wont work

Perhaps you have it connected to the speaker connection? Have you looked at the microphone to ensure there isn't possibly a mute button you have accidentally pressed?

Out of curiosity, how are the others hearing you ask if they can hear you? If you are using the microphone to ask, perhaps they are just yanking your chain?

I am using a male/female 7-pin XLR connector assembly to black box. I am using two 3-pin XLR connectors, one for SM2 microphone function, one for SM2 headset function.

Microphone not working

maybe its a problem with your sound card. Check your microphone settings in Windows.

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.

Micrphone doesnt work

No one hears you because your microphone is probably set on mute. Go to your start menu, then go to control Panel, find Volume and Sound Control should be the icon that looks like a speaker. Double click that icon. From there Click Options and then properties, find the Microphone option and click the box to the left. This should add Microphone to your menu, then simply unmute your microphone.

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
