Check the squelch on your radio thats not recieving. If there is a monitor button ( when pushed you will hear static) try pushing it.. then get someone to call you so you can check if you can hear them. On these radios you have 2 types of squelch....1 is called carrier squelch.... it basically opens when there is a strong enough signal. This lets you only hear strong signals and "squelch out" the distant ones and background static. The2nd. is "tone squelch" ... with your radio they are often called privacy tones. If you have 2 radios set with the same privacy tones you will only be able to hear each other... only radios that are transmitting with that privacy tone will be heard on your radio. Its a high frequency tone that can't be hear by the human ear that gets "embeded" with the transmitting signal. The recieving radio hears it and opens the squelch. So... if the radio thats rxing (recieving)your signal has its squelch set for just carrier squelch it will hear any signal thats strong enough to break the squech open.... basicaly any radio within a certain range. But if your radio (one with problem) has its squelch set for privacy tones you will not hear any other radios except the ones set with the same privacy tone.... the squelch will not open until it gets a tx signal with the right tone.... so if the txing (transmitting) radio is not using tone squelch but is using carrier squelch.... and the rxing radio is set for tone squelch... the rxing radio will not hear it. With tone (privacy tones/codes) squelch you need a tone to open the squelch and then the audio can be heard... with carrier squelch the squelch will open if ANY radio is within a certain range. Check the squelch setting on the problem radio... it could have a privacy tone set. Try pushing in the monitor button so you can hear static ( you want to hear everything including static) on both radios... tx on one radio at a time and listen if it can be heard on the other with the monitor button pushed. If you can't hear any audio when the broken one is transmitting then it COULD be the mic.... if you can hear both radios with the monitor button activated than the radios are txing and have tx audio and are working... if thats the case its the privacy tones that are the problem. Take care

Why cant i talk or hear any body on my mic?


Since it is Bluetooth, you have to pair the Bluetooth to your host computer or device. Find the correct window or screen and put it into discover mode, do the same with the headset. RTFM

I can hear everyone who calls me, but when I talk they say they can't hear me. I installed and ran the speaker cleaner from the app store and it did nothing...can anyone help?


could be a hardware problem for your MIC, or even a firmware problem/OS for your phones drivers. some smart phones use open source and sometimes packages can uninstall the MIC driver.

Can't talk to anybody, but can hear them just fine.


Could be a few things.One as simple as a bad soilder on the board or your voltage regulator could have went out. If you take the top cover off and talk in the mic and its starts transmitting then you have a bad soilder to check the regulator is a little harder and not for just anyone to do.

I can hear trough my headset but not talk


okay, this is obvious but first of all make sure this switch on your headset is not on mute. If alls good there go to your dashboard settings and you should see communication and make sure none of these are blocked. If this also isn't the problem it looks like you are going to need a new headset. It should have a years warrenty if that helps?

If when you talk into your mic you hear yourself from speakers...open your volume control(windows) and check the box to mute mic. Not for sure this is a fix to your problem but from what you wrote is similar to problem seen with voice chat software.

Have to talk loud...


You could check and see if anything come between you and the mic on your phone, if you can hear them clearly then you mic(part you talk into) may be clogged by dust, dirt, water or just defective.

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
