I was trying to get in-game chat to work but my microphone is not being recognized. after following all tech instructions and seeing if drivers needed to be updated (they were fine), i am still having no luck. the microphone plugs into the back (non-usb type) and requires no software. any ideas are much appreciated!

Press the PWR button on the wireless receiver to turn the unit on. The headset has a sleep/standby mode feature to preserve battery life. The unit goes into sleep mode if there's no input for 3 minutes.
Twist the tip of the microphone so the sound holes face your mouth.
Position the microphone several inches away from your mouth so it does not overload when you speak. Try to balance the microphone position and the volume setting for optimum voice level.
Press the ALL MUTE button (the Rocketfish logo) on the left side of the headset once to make sure that the All Mute function is not activated. The LED on the wireless receiver will light red when All Mute is activated.
Make sure that the volume on the wireless receiver is not turned down or muted. The LED on the wireless receiver will light orange when Mute is activated.
Rotate the CHAT VOLUME dial on the wireless receiver to control the chat volume.
Make sure the USB cable is connected to both the wireless transmitter and your device.
Make sure that all connections are correct and secure. Sometimes a cable may appear to be connected but it may not be pressed in all the way.
Make sure that the wireless receiver batteries are installed correctly. See Question 19.
Make sure that the wireless receiver batteries do not need replacing.
Make sure that the microphone isn't plugged into the Line In port (or vice versa).
Make sure the headphone jack is pushed all the way into the port.
If you're using an Xbox 360
Make sure the wireless receiver is connected to the Xbox 360 controller using the supplied chat cable. On the wireless receiver, press firmly, so no part of the silver jack is showing. This tight connection helps to make sure the cable does not fall out during gaming.
Try a different Xbox controller.
Try recording a message to a friend by selecting My Friends, Send a Message, then Add Voice. If you can hear yourself, the chat problem could be a game issue, a problem on the recipients end, or some other variable not related to the headset.
Try testing the microphone by connecting the headset to a smart phone and make a test call or record a memo. If you can hear yourself, the chat problem could be a game issue, a problem on the recipients end, or some other variable not related to the headset.
If these steps don't work, then I would advise seeking replacement.
You cannot use them to sing youtube songs the same way. Youtube hasn''t got the required software to recognize your singing and to recognize the required. If you wish to try the mics on other software then singstar you could try http://ultrastardx.sourceforge.net/ on your pc or other sing games on the ps3 as rockband.

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. firstname.lastname@example.org.
