The Model 1697 controller includes an integrated 3.5mm headset jack, which allows compatibility with most 3rd party headsets without the need of an adapter.

Can a loose aux port affect your headset mic?

I recently replaced the headphone jack on my controller as it had issues, the new one works except the mic on my headset won’t work at all. I know the headset is fine as it works perfectly on my laptop, could it be a loose connection somewhere or should i consider a new controller?

Is this a good question?

I figured out the problem, i just had to gently bend the connection pins on the aux port out slightly and it works perfectly now

Yes, a loose connection can cause problems with microphone connectivity. Check your connections, and maybe try a different set of headphones (if you haven’t tried already)

Make sure that the jack has 4 pins, not three, and that the headset also has 4 pins. (Google “4 pin headphone plug” if you’re unsure)
