    I can hear people and games through my headset but I can’t speak.


    When i got my xbox i used a headset I got from walmart and it was fine until i started having the issue stated above. Thinking it was the headset, i ordered a Razer Kraken for console and plugged it into my controller and had the same issue. Then i tried
    buying a new controller, the headset worked with this controller and things seemed fine. But i have gone through two headsets and three controllers with this same issue and that just doesn’t make sense. My mic was not muted any of the times and it was all
    the way into the port. Im not mistreating my headsets or controllers and theyre in good condition. I don’t know if I just have bad luck with controllers or if something is wrong with my xbox. Please helpI can hear people and games through my headset but I can’t speak. :(

    :)

    Make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the Headset Mic in the audio mixer on your actual Xbox. (Shown at the top of the picture)

    Hey Laura,

    Sorry to hear you’re experiencing this issue.

    As its not a faulty controller or headset because you replaced both, I can only suggest updating the controller. There may be something that needs to be adjusted in the firmware.

    To update your xbox controller:

    https://support.xbox.com/help/hardware-network/controller/update-xbox-wireless-controller

    The solutions here might also help:

    After trying these troubleshooting steps, power cycle your console.

    If the problem still persists contact support

    Hope this helps, let us know 😊

    Microphones on both of my headsets not working since this week's update

    I can't hear anybody through my TB XO One headset, but they can hear me. Game chat is fine, but in party chat it doesn't work. It shows me speaking when I speak, and my friends tell me they can hear me, and if I unplug the headset, I can hear people speaking
    through the TV speakers.

    The fact that game chat still works proves that it's Microsoft's software, not my headset, adapter, Xbox or controller.

    I can hear but I can’t speak

    If you've followed all the troubleshooting steps in the support page but your chat headset still doesn't work, your controller may need to be replaced. Find out more about
    ordering a replacement Xbox controller.

    headset i can hear but not speak

    Hello,

    You'll need to give a little bit more information than that. Is this a wired headset or a wireless headset? Have you tried plugging the headset into a different controller to see if that fixes the issue?

    Have you looked to see if the headsets mute button isn't pushed? (That's the most common issue in situations like this).

    Have you checked your preferences to make sure that everything is set correctly? You can do that by pushing the middle button on your Xbox 360 Controller and going to Settings > Preferences > Voice > Make sure that the settings in there along with the volume
    sliders are up.
