Question about Microsoft LifeChat Stereo Headset with Noise-Canceling Microphone

2 Answers

Crackly Headset My headphones are putting out a crackly noise, and a soft static is produced when I attempt to speak through the microphone. I believe it may be a disconnected wire. If so, how would I open up the headset to check? And if not, what could be wrong?

I have a motorola h710 and i can hear everybody else just fine but all they hear from me is static noise.


Sounds like the wirevto the microphone has crimped and shorted out from swinging the boom open and shut. I had the same model, and the same thing happened to mine. I opened the unit up, and tried to solder the wire where it crimped and broke, to no avail. Not only was it an unsuccessful attempt, but then once I tried to put the plastic boom back together, it just wouldn't hold! Unfortunately, it sounds like you're going to need a new headset. Wish I had better news for you.

Bought new dynex dx-740 earclip headset with microphone. earpiece works but computer not picking up microphone.


Have you installed the software for your headphone? Your computer might not pick up your device because it doesn't recognize the device.

Doesn't work with Skype


Fixed it: the microphone on the headphone was switched off - it's a bit of a design weakness in the Logitech headset: it's easy to unintentionally turn the microphone off while putting the headset on. The lower half of the right headphone's central medallion is a button - indicated by a crossed out microphone icon.

Used to have this


a microphone and a speaker work off the same principles. there is a magnet and a coil. when you speak,the air makes the speaker cone move and the coil produces a signal because it is moving across a magnetic field. when you apply a alternating voltage to the coil,it moves in opposite direction to the magnet because likes repel and opposites attract. if you apply dc to a speaker it will stay in or out depending on polarity.a bass guitars lowest not is about 50hz or cycles per second.the signal is going plus minus 50 times per second and that is why a speaker moves.because of the size of large cones,they can not move so fast,that is why woofers are big to move lots of air,and tweeters are 1 inch or so,because the range is 20khz or 20000 cycles per second.beacuse microphones have to be very sensitive,the voice coil and structure are extremely small and light.a microphone will produce sound with a signal applied,but burn out with very little power.even a clock radio will blow it out.

Ventrilo static weird occurance


First, make sure your mike/headphones are plugged in all the way to the correct jack port.

Then, re-download and install vent.

Also, go to "setup" in vent, then make sure the inbound and outbound are either set higher or lower than the default.

Hope these help, and please rate ^_^

Cannot use microphone.


Hi I have had a similar problem with a Mic, too things to try , first try it on a different appliance to rule out the appliance you are using, if it still doesn't work then it's most likely a short somewhere, tough to repair but worth a shot if you have the patience.

Hope this helps.

Labtec headphone how to get it to work.


Sometimes you need to "burn in" your headphones. Used headphones usually produce a better sound than new ones. Simply let it play some music continuously. I usually burn in my headphones with some AM/FM static.
After a while, the sound should improve.
Good luck!
