  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..

    Xbox One Not Recognizing CloudX Stinger Core Headset

    I bought a brand new xbox one-s controller so that it would have the 3.5mm input for a mic so that I could talk to my friends. I then bought the xbox one CloudX Stinger Core headset. When I plug the headset into the controller, I get no audio and the mic
    isn't recognized. When I go to the xbox controller options, the "Volume" option is greyed out. When I try to start a party, it says "We can't find a microphone for these people".

    I have tried updating the controller with the mic plugged in, but as it is a brand new controller, there wasn't an update available. I have also tried restarting the xbox/controller and unplugging the mic, but it still isn't being recognized as plugged
    in. I have plugged the mic into my computer and it gets both audio and hears my voice, so I do not believe it is the headset.

    I am very frustrated that a brand new controller and brand new headset that I only got because it is Xbox licensed is not working. Any help would be appreciated.
    Sounds to me it could possibly be your 3.5mm jack inside your controller. I just had to replace mine. Hope this helps.

    If your earbuds come with a mic it should work, you need to update your controller with the adapter and the headset plugged in first to get it to work though
