Stealth 450 - Microphone Not Working

If you can hear game audio through the Stealth 450 headset but the microphone isn't working, please check the following:

1. The Mic Boom is Connected Correctly

The Mic Boom must be plugged into the Mic Boom Jack on the Left Earcup of the Headset. The Left Earcup does not have any buttons or controls; all functional buttons are on the Right Earcup. The 3.5mm jack on the Right Earcup may be mistaken for the Mic Boom Jack; however, that is the Mobile Connection jack intended for use with the included Mobile Cable.

 

2. The Mic Boom is Plugged Fully into the Mic Boom Jack

After checking that the mic boom is plugged into the correct jack, make sure the mic is plugged fully into the Mic Boom Jack. Disconnect the mic boom by pulling it straight out and plug it back in, making sure to plug it in until you hear a "click". This may take a couple of tries.

3. The PC Chat Settings are Configured

If you are able to hear yourself through the headset when you speak into the mic, then the mic boom itself is working properly but the settings on your PC may not be configured for headset use.

Go to Sound > Recording and make sure the Stealth 450 is set as the default Recording Device.

If the microphone still isn't working, please contact our support team: Contact Support
