Headphone woes


Registered Member
I bought a nice new set of headphones with a mic to replace my old ones I use for gaming. However, the mic doesn't accept input. Should I be talking to the sound card folks or to the headphone folks?


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
There should be two output jacks. One for the headphones, and one for the mic. You may have the mic hooked into the wrong jack.

You might just need to enable it as your input source in your Sound control panel. Since it was a new addition, it might not automatically select.

If that doesn't work, then talk to the headphone people, because it might be defective hardware.

It depends on what program you're using the mic for. Some programs, like Ventrilo / TS, has special settings which configure your mike for you and tell you what's wrong.
