Hope it works for you, too!

SOURCE: 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.

i found a solution under the control panel. to configure some settings under the default view of the control panel, use the Ease of Access icon. this does not allow you to see the actual device. by switching to the classic view, use the Speech Recognition Option, which showed that i had 3 microphone drivers installed. all that needed to be done was to select the one i was using as the default.

I bought a soncm headphones sm-750mv but when I try to use the microphone it doesn't work. No manual.

This headset is pure bad. I have three and none of them worked. The manufacturer has no quality control or post production inspection. To fix the mic problem, open the earphone to which the mic is attached. You\'re likely to find that the mic wires are SHORTED together in a single piece of paper tape. Remove the tape, separate the wires and retape, assuming the tiny thin wires don\'t break in whic case you need to resolder the joins. Had the manufacturer any kind of QC, the faults would have been immediately obvious.

In recent days my headset (590A) has only been transmitting sound on the right ear via bluetooth connection, when I use the 3.5mm jack (connected to left ear) both ears work. Is there a fix for...

Your headset can be used as stereo headphones or a wireless microphone for a bluetooth enabled device like a cell phone or a computer. When you plug the headphones into a device with the 3.5mm jack the headset automatically turns into stereo headphones and disables the microphone(headphone mode). It sounds like whatever device your headset is connected to via bluetooth is using the wireless microphone protocol where sound only comes through the one speaker and the microphone is on(microphone mode). The bluetooth protocol settings of your device may have been changed accidentally. You will need to go into the bluettoth settings of your device you are using with your headset and change the protocol. If it is a cell phone you will need to go into the bluetooth settings in the settings menu. If it is a computer your can adjust the bluetooth settings in the control panel.

You can download the pdf file of your instruction manual for your headset here

I hope this was helpful and let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa

I bought a samson se50 headset microphone to go with my GTD Audio wireless system. It has the correct adapter plug to plug in to the transmitter. The plug is a mini XLR plug. The microphone does not...

You need power from the transmitter to power this mic. See your mics specs to determine if it needs "Phantom Power"
Perhaps the transmitter doesn't supply power. Condenser mics may not work. Stay with the dynamic type. IMHO

Cannot get microphone to work while connected to computer.

I found this on the Turtle Beach website: ________________________________________
Let's make absolutely sure that the microphone in your headset is working correctly. If the mic is working, a replacement talkback cable should fix it. If not, then please send in your name, shipping address, the name of the store where you purchased your X1 and the date (month/day/year) of purchase.
OK, here's how to test the X1 using the Microphone input on your PC:
1) Take the pink plug from the X1 and plug it into the pink jack (Microphone input) on your PC's soundcard.
2) Take the green plug from the X1 and plug it into the green jack (Front L/R Out or Line Out) on your PC's soundcard.
3) Take the USB plug from the X1 and insert it into a USB port on the PC (not a USB hub, please).
4) In the soundcard's control software, enable the Microphone for playback. In the Microphone > Advanced settings, enable the Microphone Boost. Make sure the Microphone is not muted (Mute switch is not enabled).
5) Adjust the volume for the Microphone to about half-way up.
6) Adjust the overall playback volume to about half-way up.
7) Put on the headset. Make sure the Mute switch on the X1 amp box is not set to Mute (the LED should be green).
Now speak into the microphone. Do you hear your voice in the headphones? If so, the mic works and your X1 headphones should be OK. If you still cannot get the X1 mic to work over Xbox Live, then you need to take a closer look at Dashboard settings and other connections, or check the integrity of your X1-Xbox Controller Cable.

In order to enable the chat make sure that the Mute button in the Off position. If it is on the ON position the Mic will not work.
Red = Muted Green = UN-Muted
If you're having trouble adjusting the Mic in Windows:
For Windows XP, there's a nice video on YouTube that takes you through all the steps of setting up your microphone:

Please follow these instructions to configure your microphone within Windows Vista:
1. Left-click on the Start button. The Start Menu will appear.
2. Left-click on Control Panel. The Control Panel will open.
3. Left-click on the Hardware and Sound option. The Hardware and Sound window will open.
4. Left-click on the Sound option. The Sound window will open.
5. Left-click on Recording from the three tabs at the top of the Sound window. While in the Recording tab of the Sound window, you will see all options available for recording - Microphone should be one of them. (If you don’t see an option for Microphone, ensure your microphone is plugged into your computer using the jacks commonly located on either the front or back of the machine.)
6. Left-click on the Microphone option to highlight it. This will enable the Properties button toward the bottom-right of the window. Left-click on the Properties button.
7. You should see the Properties for your recording (input) devices. One of these should be Microphone.
8. Left-click on the Levels tab (or similar). Adjust the Level (Volume) and Mic Boost controls to at least half-way up. If your Mic Boost control is a simple check box, please make sure it is checked (Enabled). You should hear your microphone in your headset or speakers.
Once the levels are adjusted to your satisfaction, left-click OK and OK to save your settings. You can then close the Control Panel.
Your microphone should now be ready!

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
