headphone chat problem

Post by S7 Coolhand on Thu Aug 07, 2014 8:24 pm

When I got on Tuesday I could no longer be heard through my headset.  I can hear other people just fine, but the only way for me to be heard is to disconnect the adapter and talk through Kinect.  This works but makes me sound sh1tty (shittier than normal).  I'm running the XP500 with my hacked adapter - this is the first issue I've had.  Any ideas?

Sounds like the problem I had with my old X41s on the 360 when my chat cable was bad.  I ended up having to replace my cable.   Not exactly sure how the XP500 hack works with the XB1, on the PS4 I just use a chat cable.

Or a PS4, the XP500 adaptor cable is $7 and it works like a charm, just that pesky $400 for the console.

Yes, this is why I posted.  Thank you once again for taking the time to comment.

Seriously, though, I'm not familiar with the adaptor hack, is that the one Matt talked about a while ago where you solder some part of the headset?  If so, could be a issue with the soldering.  Also, is it possible to use a chat cable like on the PS4?   I know it's not preferred when you could go wireless but that could be a possibility.

Also, did you double check all the audio settings on the XB1 to make sure something didn't get changed accidentally or reset with a system update or something.

Thank you for your concern, but no thank you.  You don't have the console nor the experience to assist.

Nevermind then.  Sorry to get in the way of all the help you're getting.

Have you tried  re doing the  solder job
post up some pic's mybe  if  people can see the job they can point out the problem

agreed that  it could be  a lose wire or something is  blocking the wire from the port on the board or  the whole wire could have gone bad, those stock headset are cheaply made

sucks to say but if you cant trouble shoot it might need to redo the whole thing over again .

i have my stock headset that came with my xb1  if you need another cable  im not using it as  im using my x41's


either way hope you fix the issue but heck the kinect chat last night  worked out ok and you came across clear  plus side to having a kinect i guess  on top of  all the other reason im happy the release xb1 with one in the box

Honestly, the Kinect chat works just fine and isn;t an issue if you don't have anyone else in the room.

One thing I was going to ask, is if you actually tried your headset with your phone or something else. It could be the mic on the headset and nothing to do with the Xbox or cable.

Great tip Matt - the mic works for phone calls, so that means the problem is in the cable or adapter.  I think one of my cats may have chewed on the wire, so I'll try cutting and splicing that section.


Thanks for the info and offer Sticky - I'll let you know.

The Kinect mic has been handy but only seems to work for party chat.  Can't really play straight-up S&D or Extinction with randoms.

...new chat cable. They sell the TB chat cables at Target for like $10 or $15 (at least they are at my local Target).

Yep, one wire has come loose.  Not sure if I can fix it due to all the hot glue on there.  It will be a challenge.

At what point would you give up the chase and pick up a new adapter? I ask this out of pure curiosity.

Funny you should ask, but around 1:30 last night I gave up.  I can't believe I managed to solder that the first time.  It's just too tough and not worth it - I'll pay $25 after work today for a new adapter instead.

Tape everything down and make sure the wire and contact is hot too, and not only the solder. They are really tiny points, and I hadn't soldered in a few years, so I was surprised I was able to get it too.
