I got my turtle beach from a friend, except it didn't have a foam windscreen cover for the mic. It is very hard to talk into, and i have to put my mouth on the mic just so people can hear me. How can I fix this? Is this because of the windscreen? I can still hear myself through the headphones.

they are not compatable... read your booklet that came with your head set and you will see if small print that it is not compatable with datel controllers. you can get a typical head set with mic. that comes with your cell phone as i have and with the plastic clip that comes with the cell phone set clip the mic part just above the foam cover over the turtle beach mic. (also turn off the mic. part of the turtle beach unit) then put the cell phone single ear piece into your left ear and then put on the turtle beack head set. due to the small size of the cell phone ear piece you will not feel it. then plug into your datel controller the plug from the cell phone head and mic piece. you will hear thru the turtle beach all of the game sounds, etc.. and thru your cell phone set you will hear you chat. it works and will do until datel or turtle beach comes out with a fix, if ever.
take your cell phone ear piece and mic attached cable and clamp the mic part with the clamp that is on the cable to the end of the turtle beach mic piece just before the foam cover with the cell phone mike facting toward you. plug in the cell phone ear piece to your left ear and then put the tuttle beach head set on just a normal. the cell pone ear piece is so small that you will not even know it is there when you cover it with the turtle beach head set. plug in the cable from the cell phone into the port in the rear of your turbo fire two controler and away you go. you can enjoy the great sound of the turtle beach head set and at the same time chat with the cell phone mike. you can adjust the sound level on the head set but you will not be able to adjust the volume on the cell phone mike. but it works fine just place the head set mike boom real close to your mount so your friends can hear you well. I use it in two worlds two in the marshlands while leveling up on x box live. you can find me a DeepReserve which is my game tag.
If you have an X1 headset...
Try using the X1 headset and mic with your PC (sound card). Green plug goes to green jack, Pink plug goes to pink jack. Can you hear your voice thru the X1 mic on your PC? If yes, then the mic works but the chat-controller cable is probably broken and should be replaced. If no, then the mic may be broken and you should contact Turtle Beach's tech support for help -- firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may have kinked your controller cable when you moved all your Xbox stuff. You might as well get a replacement controller cable--Turtle Beach sells them for only $4.95 on their website. I'd recommend the newer white one since that looks to be a lot thicker.
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. email@example.com.
Do you have an X1? If so, you should be able to use it with a PC. Try talking into the mic with your X1 connected to the PC. Does it echo there too? If not (and it shouldn't) then you probably only need to replace the chat-controller cable with a new one. Those are available for sale on the Turtle Beach website (www.turtlebeach.com).
