Re: Cyber acoustic ac 208

The issue lies in the glass fiber wire, the wire is coated with a conductive metal only a fe mircons thick.

Simply put the headset is a poor production model, the use of glass fiber wire more often than not results in a short in the wiring. Thus the sound will come out of one side, not at all, etc.

What about if the headphone doesnt have a usb...instead it has 2 cables, a pink one and a green one?

Those are separate connectors for the earphone (green) and microphone (pink). Plug them in to the appropriate connectors on your computer. On desktops you will find them on the rear panel (maybe also on the front on some systems), and they will probably be color coded the same way. On a laptop, the connectors are usually on the front edge or on one of the sides.

My turtle beach x1 stopped working

What happens if you try your X1 on a PC instead of on your Xbox? That's a good test of the mic... Here's how:
- Plug the X1 USB into a USB port on your PC. - Plug the X1 green plug into the green Line Out jack on your PC. - Plug the X1 pink plug into the pink Microphone jack on your PC.
Try recording the sound of your own voice on the PC, using Sound Recorder or whatever. Do you hear the sound of your voice? If so, your mic is working and the X1 chat/controller cable is probably broken. Replace the chat/controller cable.
If not, then the X1 mic is broken and you should contact Turtle Beach for service at

Computer wont recognize the microphone on the turtle beach x4

Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help.

Cyber acoustics ac-201 and it doesn't work!!

Hi itsonlyerin,

This has to be rather general as it's a bit hard to give you specific advise without knowing a bit more about your operating system and sound card.

Try checking the following:
(1) Headphone problem
First, I would try to determine if there is a problem with the microphone itself. Do you have another pair or a different model that you could try? If yes, then give them a go and see if the other ones work. If they do then take your ac201's back to the store and get a replacement. If you haven't got another pair then try them in another computer and see if you get a different result. If they work in a different computer then the phones are OK and we need to look into the computer hardware and software.

(2) Software Setup problem.
Have you made sure that on the recording controls that the microphone volume is turned up?

(3) Sound Card setup problem.
Some sound cards have multipurpose jack that for example can be switched between line input and microphone. Check with the card's documentation and especially check that the jack you are using is set to microphone and that you are plugged into the right one.

(4) Software problem - do you have the right drivers for your sound card loaded?

(5) Faulty Sound Card - try a different one.

Good Luck

Mic broke

Try using your X1 with your computer. Plug the X1 green plug into the green jack on the PC. Plug the X1 pink plug into the pink jack on your PC. Try using the headset to listen to the sound of your voice. Can you hear your voice through the headset? If yes, then the mic is OK but the chat-controller cable needs to be replaced. If not, then you should contact Turtle Beach tech support at
