  1. Xbox One S - Brand new and earbuds mic not working on controller!


    Hi all,

    I purchased an Xbox One S bundle yesterday and plugging a 3.5mm jack into the controller works and the audio output is solid. However, the mic does not work. It says it is connected, but simply does not activate. Pressing the volume buttons on my earbuds
    makes a noise and seems to activate the mic, which is weird. I have tried an adapter, with no success. Any solutions? I have also tried unplugging and replugging the earbuds several times, ensured that the rings are compatible for a microphone, etc. They are
    Bose SoundSport wired earbuds for Apple and I got them around a month ago.

    :)

    What adapter did you try without success?

    Be aware that there are two standards for 3.5 mm headset jacks called OMTP and CTIA. With both standards, the microphone and ground pin connectors are reversed.

    Which means, if your Bose headset has an OMTP standard jack, the headset is sending microphone signals to the controller's ground, while the controller is "listening" for the microphone on the headset's ground pin.

    If the headset actually works on your smartphone for example, then simply get an OMTP to CTIA adapter cable. Since only two wires get crossed over, these adapters should be dirt cheap. If the store is asking for a higher price than a coffee-to-go for such
    an adapter, you are being ripped off. Also, since crossing the ground and microphone pin works both ways, you can also get a CTIA to OMTP adapter, as both are the same thing.

    Pretty sure its something to do with the apple headphones... they are wired different compared to normal ones..

    MIC WONT LET ME SPEAK BUT CAN HEAR

    Both mics are xbox official headsets and controllers, one of the controllers is a day one edition but just bought another brand new official xbox controller to see if that was the problem. The Mic just randomly stopped working one evening. And yes the
    mic symbol is shown in the top right hand corner with no line through it
