    Screeching sound in party chat, game chat mic sounds crackly to others


    Hi,

    I've had various issues with my chat on my Xbox One S for a while.

    My party chat used to work perfectly - until one day an additional member joined the party, which caused some kind of feedback and almost deafened me, and now whenever I'm in a party, the other member's voices have a screeching intonation to varying degrees
    every fourth or so word that is quite painful.

    Game chat works ok, but I have had some complaints that it sounds like my mic is not plugged in properly or the wire needs to be jiggled around.

    I have two controllers and 3 headsets, and have tried combinations of all of these with the same result. One of the headsets is the Xbox one chat headset. Both controllers are the official ones. I have no issues with lag/open NAT etc.

    I sent my xbox in for a service, and it came back with no improvement.

    Please help!

    :)

    It happens no matter who I am with in the party - I have tried it with three different individuals and the result is always the same (I generally only play with one person at any time).

    Although I should mention that the one time when two others joined the party, then it became normal...
    Do you have the console over LAN or WLAN on the run?

    did you pick it up with a Mixamp as it is with an Astro A40?

    The following conditions may cause an echo or noise during gameplay:

    The microphone detects ambient noises. This includes voice transmission that comes from the earpiece.

    The headset plug is not fully inserted into the controller.You’re using the Xbox One Wireless Controller, and the battery levels in the unit are low.

    If you or other players hear an echo or other noise during gameplay, try the following:

    Turn the volume down on your TV or stereo.

    Disconnect the headset, and then reconnect it firmly to the controller's expansion port.

    Note Never pull on the headset cable when removing it from your controller. Remove your headset from your controller by pulling on the body of the headset plug.Clean the plug on the headset cable with a clean cloth, and then reconnect the headset to the
    controller.Test the headset by connecting it to a different controller.

    If you're using an Xbox One Wireless Controller, replace the AA batteries or recharge the Xbox One rechargeable battery.

    This is a part of yhe solutions found in this link.

    Is that always with a person? can it be an override of your chat partner?

    Unfortunately that cannot be the case, as I stated in the OP, this happens with 3 different sets of headsets - and one of them (the original MS chat headset) was new out of the box but still this happened.

    My friends don't hear shrill in party chat, I do. They apparently hear "cricket sounds".

    In game chat they dont hear cricket sounds, they hear slight crackling (which I don't - game chat sounds perfectly for me).

    I tested the same headsets in Skype and they worked perfectly.

    I switch between lan and wifi as it's hard for me to get an open nat on lan connection.

    Sorry - what is this mixamp? I'm not very tech savvy. I pick it up with the turtle beach 70 recon, the ms chat headset, and various generic samsung headsets.
