The NEW Gaming Headset/Headphone Topic! (REQUEST STICKY PLZ) - Page 182

post #5431 of 5440
Just a heads up to anyone looking at the Polk 4 shot headset. Polk recently sent out a boom mic to everyone who registered there product as a temporary fix for the mic volume levels. I received mine a couple of days ago and the mic volume is fine now. Of course, now I have a boom mic in front of my face which is what I was trying to avoid with the Polk headset.

Hopefully they get the firmware updated soon.

I just got mine, but have already returned the set. I guess I can sell the chat pro now...

saw this on reddit and thought it might help some people:

Credit goes to /u/mkmkd for this one. I was having issues chatting through my included mic with the xbox, as well as my A40s through the adapter, but the Kinect was picking up everything. After going "home" and clicking on my profile and rebinding myself to the controller, I was able to chat through both headsets.

To add details this has to with the fact that the kinect don't know to which controller send mic data(if any) if it doesn't see it or recognize it.

Select "choose this player" this rebinds the controller!

I wonder if that was what was happening to me the other night when I was playing TF with some friends. I could not chat with them but I could hear them just fine. Switched from the adapter to the bundled headset and still no go mad.gif

I figured my player was already 'chosen' since I was in a multiplayer match and in a party. I'll go back & see if I can find the reddit thread for help on how this works. I choose my player again after already choosing the player to 'rebind' the controller if I'm having issues???

I'm guessing the fact that I have the Kinect 'cover' on that came with the PDP mount is contributing to my chat issues?

@onlysublime, can you give me a link to that reddit article? I know I'm having the same issue because I don't use kinect to sign-in and I lose chat when either 1) The Xbox controller powers off and I have to turn it on again or 2) I have to switch controllers. The issue happens whether I'm using the chat adapter with the Astro mixamp or the bundled Xbox One headset.

I'm not clear on how to rebind my profile to the controller. I've tried signing in-out. "choose this player" multiple times. Last night it happened after I switched controllers and I had to hard rest the console to get chat back :/

yeah, I have no idea how to find it. reddit's search function is very rudimentary... just ask the question. a lot of people will respond. also, there are the names there in the quoted text so you can send them messages. sorry

posted this on the xbox one console forum to no response, but maybe this was the more appropriate thread.

Xbox Headset Issues.....

1. my controller dies while I'm playing online multiplayer

2. grab another charged controller and replug the xbox headset into the new controller

3. no sound in or out of the headset This has happened to me every time. The only way I have figured out how to solve the issue is to reboot the console. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, figured out a solution other than restarting?

Thanks

when you guys game with your headphones (if applicable for the game) do you usually change the audio setting to the headphones setting or should it be set to speakers/home theatre...etc. if wanting the virtual 5.1?

Try it both ways. If the game's "headphone" setting ASSUMES your using a 5.1 surround headset, give it a go vs. the home surround/cinema setting. But what if you're using a stereo headset? Not all games make it clear. That's why I always alternate between the 2 modes to see which processes the dynamic better.

No worries. I did find a way to fix the issues with chat though, I completely turned off Kinect in the settings.

That may not be the best workaround...and I do actually like some of the Kinect features, but it works 100% of the time until MS works out the bugs with a logged in user and headset chat on XB1.
