Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. How do I make Game Audio louder than Chat Audio, or Chat Audio louder than Game Audio?

A. First, set the overall volume level you prefer by pressing the Volume button accordingly: Top part of the button = Raise Volume, Lower part of the button = Lower Volume. Then, press the left button in the direction depending on whether you want to make Game Audio louder than Chat, or vice-versa. Pressing the upper part of the button (near GAME) will make Game Audio louder than Chat Audio. Pressing the lower part of the button (near CHAT) will make Chat Audio louder than Game Audio.

Q. I can hear people in chat but I can't hear the game. What's wrong?

A. Make sure the Game Balance isn't turned all the way down; press the upper part of the left button (near GAME) to increase Game audio. Trying to raise the game audio using the volume button will not have any effect if the Game Balance is turned all the way down.

If there is no change, try power cycling the console and Headset Audio Controller (HAC). To do this, disconnect HAC from the Xbox One Controller, then power the Xbox One off completely. Wait 60 seconds, then power the Xbox One back on. Once the Xbox One has completed start-up, plug the adapter back into the Xbox One Controller.

A. First, make sure the Chat Balance is turned up on the adapter. To do this, press the lower part of the left button (near CHAT) to increase the chat audio. Trying to raise the chat audio using the volume button will not have any effect if the Chat Balance is turned down.
