Atlas Three - PC Setup, PC Setup Issues

If you are having issues setting up your Atlas Three for use with a PC, please review the following:

1. Headset is Powered On/Charged/Securely Plugged in, Mic Is Unmuted

Press and hold the Power button to power the headset on, and then plug the headset into the computer. 

In addition, make sure the headset itself is charged. The headset will charge to full within a few hours, and has a battery life of over 40 hours when full. If the battery is low, you will hear a double-tone in the headset, followed by another tone every few minutes. When the headset's batter is low, the headset's LED will also blink Red/White.

If your computer has separate jacks, one each for headset audio and mic audio, you'll need to use the included PC Splitter Cable to connect the headset into your computer, as shown below.

Make sure that the mic is flipped forward. If the mic is flipped all the way up/back, the mic itself will be muted.

2. Mic/Headset are Set As Default Device

With the headset connected to the computer, check that the headset/mic are set as the default Playback and Recording devices.

Right-click the speaker icon on the bottom-right of the screen. On Windows 10, select "Open Sound Settings"; otherwise, click "Recording Devices".

In these screens, you'll be able to select the headset and mic as the default device; this means the computer will use the headset and mic for the audio.

PLEASE NOTE: The headset/mic will not appear in the list of available devices as "Elite Atlas". Instead, the headset will appear as the jack that the headset itself is plugged into. In the screenshots below, the headset appears as "Speakers (Realtek High Definintion Audio", and the mic itself appears as "Microphone Array (Realtek High Definition Audio)".

In addition, the headset does not use or need any kind of device drivers at all. You should be able to plug the headset into the computer, set the headset and mic as the default device, and be able to hear and be heard through the headset.

You should be able to gently tap the mic and see activity in the bar under "Test your Microphone".

If you see that activity showing in the test bar, your mic has successfully been set as the default device. Continue to Step 3.

3. Test Recording

In Windows 10, click the start Menu and open Voice Recorder. With the mic and headset set as the default device, click the Record button, and record yourself talking into the mic, or gently tapping on the mic.

Then, click the play button to play back that test recording you made. You should be able to hear what you had recorded clearly.

Record yourself talking into the mic, or gently tapping on the mic. Then, click "Stop Recording", and save the recording to your Desktop.

Open the recording, and play it back. You should be able to hear what you had recorded clearly.

If you could hear the recording clearly, the computer itself is picking up the sound. Continue to Step 3.

If you could not hear the recording clearly, but the mic is securely plugged in to the headset, is not muted, and both the headset and mic are set as the default device, contact support.

3. Program-Specific Settings

If you are having issues with specific apps like Discord, Skype, or TeamSpeak, you'll want to make sure that the mic and headset are set as the default devices for not only the computer's sound settings, but also for the program's sound settings as well. The individual screens and processes for this will vary from program to program, but essentially, you'll want to go into the settings for the program, and make sure that the mic and headset are showing as the chosen default device.
