Question 7: Why isn’t Chat working?

  • Twist the tip of the microphone so the sound holes face your mouth.
  • Unplug and plug the microphone back in pressing firmly to assure a good connection.
  • Make sure the mute indicator on the In-line control unit is not yellow. If the mute indicator is yellow, press the MIC MUTE button to restore sound and turn off the mute indicator.
  • Rotate the CHAT/GAME VOLUME dial on the In-line control unit to adjust the balance between the game volume and the chat volume.
  • 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 the USB connector on the In-line control unit cable is connected to your device.
  • If you’re using an Xbox 360
    • Make sure the In-line control unit is connected to the Xbox 360 controller using the supplied chat cable.
    • 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 smartphone and making a test call or recording 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.
