Headset Microphone not working

Hello,

I recently bought a new controller and updated it in the devices/accessories area. Now my Xbox headset microphone isn't picking up my voice on my old or new controller, but I can hear people in a party/game chat. Please advise.

ad the same problem I think, to my understanding when you talk in party/gamechat your circle doesn't move indicating you aren't talking. But you can hear people just fine. I have had this problem for months but have been out of xbox lately partly because of it. My kinect works fine but I hate using it as it can be hard to hear people properly. As of now to my knowledge there is no fix. (I had a thread about it for a while had 40 or so post but kind of lost interest in keeping it up, and until they locked it still had people messaging me on xbox asking for a fix).

Recap

-Hear people through headset

-Can't talk back

Try a kinect if you can, for me different controllers/Headsets don't work

Yea, but I don't have a Kinect. So that's not an option for me. Ugh.

Hey, I had this problem as well.

Turns out that my 2.5mm<->3.5mm cable stopped working.

Test your headset out on a cell-phone to see if it could possibly be that.

I ended up just using another one of the cables.

...if you don't have another, you can pick them up for a few bucks...pretty cheap

I'm using the normal headset, not one with an adapter cable.
