Why can't my controller detect headset

Just recently my xbox one controller won't detect my xbox one official headset. I tried using other alternative like plugging the xbox one official headset adapter but the controller still can't detect the headset. The light on the mute button won't light up when I pressed it

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I had the same problem... It has something to do with the multi-use port being broken... Has it always been that way or did it just start doing it? If it has always done that you have a faulty controller and if it's new you should be able to get a replacement from Xbox support.

Is this also true for the 3.5mm port. My sons just stopped detecting the mic

Like on the newer controllers?

P.S. Make sure the mic is on in the guide (double tap home and at the bottom there should be a settings area)

We have the Xbox One, and my son just recently started using the headset..he would get the cannot detect mic message on and off, and now it just says every time he tries to use a headset. We have tried going through the settings, tried multiple headsets, etc. I bought this bundle in either June/July, and it came with 2 controllers. Both controllers have this issue, so I am curious to know whether this is a common issue for this console. Very frustrating!!

Are you useing the 3.5mm headphone jack or the proprietary puck?

Im getting this alot too, ive heard its something to do with a little metal sqaure thingy in the port, it comes loose and stops the mics from being detected. Dont bother getting new mics over and over again, thats what i did, just get a new controller :)
