    Astro A40 Mic Not Working


    Headset- Astro A40 2014 version w/mix amp.

    Problem- At first my headset was working fine, i could hear people talk, they could hear me talk, and of course with the a40's i had amazing game audio. But for the past 3 weeks every time i turn on my xbox to play, i will be able to hear
    people talk, but they wont hear me. So every day when i got on xbox i would have to unplug the console from the power box, wait 10 seconds, then plug it in, and for some reason it would work after i did that every day. But now, the only way my mic works is
    literally if i put it in my mouth and scream, and then my friends still can barely hear me. I did the most recent update for the controller today, and tried to unplug the xbox as usual, but no luck.

    Im wondering if anyone else is having this problem, and if anyone has fixed it. Controller is up to date, a40s up to date, mix amp up to date, all firmware is up to date. Ive been very patient with this console, as i have a day one version and have had problems
    since the release. But i have over $1000 in gaming gear and it does not work correctly..

    Anyways please let me know if there is a way to fix this, thanks.

    :)

    Xbox stereo headset mic suddenly stopped working mid conversation

    So I bought a new adapter and the official xbox stereo headset still wouldn't work but the astro a40's did for a few days, then tonight same exact thing. Mid conversation the mic stopped working. Where's my support, xbox?

    Astro A40 Mic Not Working

    I run the A40s and yet to have Mic issues. My only issue Ive seen so far is when the latest updated was released now sometimes I can not here people speaking or cuts in and out. Also I unhooked my Kinect since the new June updated is out and supposedly no
    longer needed but then I lost everything when using A40s....(Sounds,Mic)

  5. Update your mixamp to the previous firmware thats what i did when i purchased my astro's and have no issues at all also turn the mic off on the kinect. I hope this will solve your issue.

  8. Astro A40 Mic Not Working

    Im assumed that its just my mic and was going to exchange it. But after reading this I am not too happy seeing as I just purchased the A40 after returning to A50s.

    None the less I am going to exchange the mic only. Il keep you guys posted...

    I was having this same issue a few minutes ago and after unplugging and replugging everything I noticed I had pushed the mute switch a tad down and that seems to have muted my mic. I honestly would have never thought to look at it but I saw the slight orange
    strip.

    all i can say is make sure you update them before using them also if you want the best then go with ASTRO i use ASTRO A40's got them in 2011 and work fine im getting the new GEN 2 astro a40's next week they say they work for ps4 but they work fine with xbox
    one you just need a mic cable and chat adaptor the mic cable is £6you can also get wireless astros which are the a50's also if you dont care for 5.1 or 7.1 then the astro a40's built for xbox one and the mix amp is on the controller they are £170 and stereo

    Half of us can't even get our mics to work at all with the adapter like me with the astro a40s. Consider yourself lucky
