Xrocker & Xbox Mic help

32
Posted 22nd Dec 2019
Hi guys, I realise it is a mega busy time of year for everyone so any help is hugely appreciated!!

Today is my little boys Birthday and he was very lucky to get an Xrocker Sentinel 4.1 chair with all the bells and whistles!

Problem is, im not very technical and although it is working and set up, he has his headset plugged into his xbox controller as normal for his mic but i am listening to all of the noise through the chair speakers and its already dementing me !!

It doesnt matter which port I plug his headset into for the mic, nobody can hear him talking unless it is in the controller... surely there MUST be a way to get the sounds through the headset and the mic work!? If I just turn the volume off on the chair it also turns the vibration feedback off so I am literally in a no win situation hahah!

I hope there is a simple solution I am missing here being a non tech savvy Mum! x

Is it just the sounds from people talking you want through his headset or all volume ?

Open up your Xbox Dashboard and go into the ‘Settings’ menu. From here, you’re going to want to select ‘Display and Sound’ and then find the ‘Volume’ option. This will open up several settings which allow you to channel game audio through your headset, speakers or both. It’s worth noting that you can also choose where your chat audio comes through as well, under the same menus. This should allow you to adjust the game volume through your Xbox One headset.

To be able to get the vibrations on the chair though you will need the audio to come out of it too unfortunately

If he wants to use the headset to talk to people it needs to be plugged into the controller. If it’s plugged into the chair he will only get sound but the mic won’t work and no one will be able to hear him
Show me a picture of them bottom of the controller and a picture of the headset

The headset port in the chair is audio only. The port in the controller is for audio and chat

If you want sound to come out of the chair then you will need a cable direct from the tv headphone port to the chairs input port
Yes the headset is plugged into the controller but im plagued with the game music i see what you say about audio vs audio plus mic, guessing there is no way around it 😬 might be time to move computer upstairs hahah x

Plug the headset directly into the bottom of the Xbox controller and this will fix the issue

You will have to do what I put the first time by going into the Xbox setting and changing it so it only played through the headset

If it was right in front of me it would take me 2 seconds to fix but it’s hard for me to explain it. Do you know what I mean

Aww haha I know and trying to explain a simpleton is probably so infuriating I think I do, so basically if you change the setting on xbox it is not capable of playing through anything other than the headset meaning you could have volume on chair and by default it could not physically play through the chair... I think going to try it now so will keep you posted haha x
Or maybe if i got a splitter with 2 females.. i could connect to controller and chair simultaneously :/

I’ve been playing/repairing etc Xbox for about 13 years now I could do it with my eyes closed if it was in front of me. If you can’t get it working you can log onto his account by going onto the Xbox support website and you can either chat online with them or request a call and they should be able to help
