Headset Hey guys... Just got a headset and remote control from Amazon yesterday.  I'm trying to play NAVY SEALS online, but cannot communicate.  Some dude told me all he hears is low static whenever I try to talk.  Am I doing anything wrong?  Is it the headset or the remote???  (I have Verizon as my ISP)  I can adjust the volume from the remote and I can hear using the headset, but cannot talk.  HELP!!!

Re: Headset

There may be a few things that are wrong:

1. Your headset may be faulty.
2. You may need to configure your router.

First, make your IP address static.
If you do not know how to do this, then there is a guide here.

After that, you will need to go into your Router's Control Panel.
You can do this one of two ways:

1. Go to Start --> Run. Type in "cmd".
Once the command box opens, type in: "ipconfig /all"
Find the "Default Gateway" and paste it into your browser.
You will be prompted for a username and password, which you would have set when you installed the router.

2. Go to and find out what your external IP address is. Copy the address, and paste it into your browser.

Once you have logged into your Router's control panel, look for "Port Forwarding" or "DMZ".
When you get onto the page, add a new record.
Use the static IP address you used earlier, and set the record to "DMZ".

[[DMZ open ALL ports on that IP address, allowing incomming and outgoing traffic to pass in and out of the computer]]

This should allow the headset to work, however if it doesn't, it may be faulty.

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!

On my XBOX 360 I am getting a crackling noise in my headphones when I have my microphone plugged into the wireless controller. I have tried two other known good controllers and the problem is still p

This sounds like it is probably an issue with your wireless controller. If there is any way for you to safely blow into the tiny hole that you plug your headset into in an attempt to clear any dust or debris from that area it would be in your best interest.

If not, try a third headset-- the same issue means either play without a headset or purchase a new controller.

Hope this was helpful!

Is this headset for online play only

The headset is mostly used for online gaming or chatting with friends. However some single player games support some sort of speech recognition such as Tom Clancey's: End War.

No sound through the headset. new xbox360 250gb from yesterday

Are you using it online? Only chat from Xbox Live comes through the headset, they aren't headphones.

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.

Chatting sound on playstation 3 network

The game you are playing should have an adjustment for online chat volume when you are in the options for online play, alternitavely if you use a bluetooth headset you can control the sound of the other players with the headset.

Hope this helps.

How do i hook my bluetooth to my ps3

After you have connected the headset to the PS3™ system, you can verify that the PS3™ system is receiving voice input from the headset
and that the headset is correctly playing output.
To test and configure your headset
In your PS3™ system’s home menu, go to [Settings] > [Accessory Settings] > [Audio Device Settings].
After you pair a Bluetooth® device with the PS3™ system, the Bluetooth® device becomes the default for both input and output audio. If the
headset is working correctly, you can hear your voice loopback in the headset. The audio input bar will indicate your voice level.

Psp headset

Guys, there's no microphone built in the remote control for the psp.

To play games like Talkman, you need a standalone microphone to be attached to the usb port on the top of your psp, or a camera with mic built in.

Make sure the headset connector and the headset jack on your controller are free from dirt and debris, which may interfere with sound transmission. More importantly, ask your fellow gamers and conversants to check their connectors, as the poor sound you hear may well originate from someone else's headset. 1. Examine and then clean the Xbox hardware. To do this, follow these steps:a. Examine the headset, the cord, and the connector for visible defects. b. Make sure that there is no dirt or debris on the Xbox 360 Headset connector. ? To clean the connector, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. c. Verify that the Xbox 360 Controller operates correctly. ? Verify that you can use the controller to turn the console on and off. d. Firmly insert the Xbox 360 Headset connector in the expansion port under the directional pad (D-pad) and the right stick on the controller. e. If this does not resolve the issue, go to step 2. 2. Test the headset. To do this, record and then listen to a new voice message. To record and then listen to a new voice message, follow these steps:a. Press the Xbox Guide button on the Xbox 360 Controller. b. Select Messages, and then press the A button. c. Select Create New, and then press the A button. d. Select Message, and then press the A button. e. Select a gamertag, and then press the A button. f. Select Add Voice, and then press the A button. g. Put on the Xbox 360 Headset. h. Select Record Message, and then press the A button to start recording a message. i. Speak clearly into the microphone and record your voice for 5 to 15 seconds. j. Press the A button to stop recording. k. Select Play Message, and then press the A button. l. Listen to your recording. ? If you can hear the recorded message, your headset is operating correctly. If the headset still does not function correctly when you use the headset on Xbox Live, you may have to configure Family Settings. Go to step 3. ? If you cannot hear the recorded message, your microphone may be muted, or the earpiece volume may set too low. Verify that the controls are adjusted correctly. 3. Configure Family Settings. Note If you set up a profile for a child on the console, Family Settings lets the owner of the parent profile control who can communicate with the child profile on Xbox Live. In Family Settings, you can enable communication in the child's profile. The default setting for gamers who are under 17 is Friends Only. To configure Family Settings, follow these steps:a. In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button. b. Select Family Settings, and then press the A button. c. Select Xbox Live Controls, and then press the A button. d. Select the child?s profile, and then enter the password of the parent?s profile that is associated with the child's profile. e. Select Privacy and Friends, and then press the A button. f. Select Communications, and then press the A button. g. Select one of the following options: ? Everyone This setting lets you communicate with anyone on Xbox Live. ? Friends Only This setting lets you communicate with people who are on your friends list only. ? Blocked This setting blocks all communication with the headset. Note With this setting, you can still receive new friend requests. h. After you select the option that you want, press the B button until you return to the System section.
