If you have an xbox one controller like me, you may discover that the gadget that plugs into your xbox with the bolume controls on isnt working OR the slot it goes into isnt working. Try taking it off and if your mic has a single phone socket that normally goes into it just plug it into the phono whole that you can see after you remove the gadget. I discovered my controller slot inside was broke and needed to use phono socket

Have you checked to see if the mute function is activated? Make sure that the microphone is not muted by pressing the mute button on the adapter.

It's also possible that the headset is not completely connected to the adapter, or the adapter may not be fully connected to the controller. In this case, the speakers would not be working as well.

If these suggestions did not solve the problem, check out the troubleshooting page.

None of these steps worked for me. Found this YouTube video that was an easy fix with the power settings. I don't understand why, but here ya go https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sTlNv26Wgc...

Check that the controller is charged, and headset has power. Click the microphone mute button on the headset adapter to be sure mute setting is off. The Xbox One controller's firmware may need to be updated.

If problem persists, see the troubleshooting guide: Xbox One Stereo Headset Troubleshooting
