No Voice Through Headset

Does anyone else have issues hearing their own voice through a headset with Vista?

I recently upgraded both of my machines to Windows Vista Ultimate. Since I've done this, I can no longer hear my voice through my headset (with Softphone). The customers can hear me fine and I can hear them fine, but I cannot hear my own voice - sounds like I'm talking with my hands over my ears. Of course, this is very annoying to say the least. It always worked fine with Windows XP so it has to be a Vista issue?

I have the same problem with different headsets so that's not it. I've tried all the settings within the Softphone and my PC itself and couldn't find anything that would fix it. I've tried Ring Central support and they walked me through several re-installations of the soft phone among many other things with no prevail. I just got off the phone with Microsoft and they told me that hearing my voice through my headphones is not a feature in Vista, LOL! C'mon, you're going to tell me that everyone in this world using a voIP phone and Vista will not hear their voices with a headset?!?! Geesh.....

So I guess I'd like to know if anyone here is using a Softphone with Vista and a headset without problems?

And if someone has any idea how to fix this, I'd LOVE to know!

Frustrated :x PR: wait... I: wait... L: wait... LD: wait... I: wait... wait... SD: wait...

From another website. I can't take any credit:

"I'm using Vista.

Okay, I finally figured out how to fix it ....

Control Panel -> Sound -> Right-click "Properties" -> "Levels" Tab -> Un-mute Microphone and move the slider to 100."

Then turn up the headset speaker control all the way.

I have a Plantronics C610 headset. The caller can hear me, but I can not hear the caller.

Here are a couple of things you can try. I included the link for the user guide below.

Callers cannot hear me.
• Headset is muted. Press the mute button on headset to unmute the microphone.
• Headset microphone boom aligned incorrectly. Align the headset boom with your mouth.
• The USB adapter is not set as the default Voice device. Use the Voice settings in Windows under Sounds and Voice Devices to select "Plantronics C610/C620" as the voice device.

Here is a link to the Plantronics C610 User's Guide.

I recently purchased a plantronics h171 headset for my snom 320 phone. I can hear fine but no one can hear me

This is a common problem if you are using a 2.5mm patch cable instead of the Vista M22 amplifier. Phones do not put out enough power to the 2.5mm jack. If you are using the Vista M22 amplifier make sure the batteries are fresh and installed correctly. Also sometimes a voice tube can become clogged with debris which can restrict the airflow and people will not be able to hear you.

Check settings on your computer. Specify your operating system (vista/xp). Also check if the mic switch is turned on.

Logitech headset, new vista operating system

either the headset is not supported by Vista, or you need to right click on both speaker icons, normally coloured red and black and in the properties you need to see if your headset is listed as one of the microphone input devices, if you need to make the Logitech headset the default mic and not the windows generic mic. If you do not see it in the properties then it may not be recognised by Vista.

Jabra BT 320s Headset

If you have no problem pairing the headset to the cellphone, maybe the issue comes from the headset that has a defect in it. These bluetooth headsets are kinda fragile, check out where you bought it if you have a warranty.
