  1. Bluetooth Microphone working for a few minutes then stopping


    For a long time, my headphones have worked just fine, until a couple weeks ago when randomly the mic would just stop working, if I restarted my headset, then it would work just fine again for the next few minutes. In the sound tab I can see my mic picking up audio and then it just stops, if I disconnect and reconnect the mic there, it works for a little while. I have checked the drivers, I have the mic enabled, I've tried it with other headsets and the same problem happens there. My apps can access the microphone, it's my default device and there is no hardware mute. In the properties tab, I've changed the levels trying to see if that worked, right now its at 100, nothing I did there seemed to help, no apps have exclusive control and no enhancements are enabled. Like I said, it works perfectly fine when it first turns on and then it randomly shuts off, best estimate for time is about 5 minutes for each headset.

    :)

  2. Microphone suddenly stopped working

    My microphone is still not working. I even checked the BIOS as someone had suggested but there is no listing for the microphone in there.

    Bluetooth Headset Microphones Don't work with Windows 10

    I cannot get any bluetooth headset microphone to work with Windows 10. I have tried three different bluetooth headsets, most recently a Corsair Gaming H2100. I have no problem getting the audio output to work just fine with any of them, but I cannot get
    it to recognize the microphone. I have followed all of the obvious steps:

    • Uninstalled and reinstalled the newest version of the drivers
    • Restart my computer
    • Disable other microphones
    • Set the headset as the default recording device
    • Check the levels and set to 100
    • Remove the device with the device manager and reinstall
    • Unplug and plug back in my bluetooth antenna
    • Make sure that Windows is totally updated
    None of these steps has made any difference. I am able to get wired microphones to work, but this isn't ideal with my current set-up, as I sit about 10 feet away from my computer and use my 55" television as my monitor. So, I have a really nice webcam that
    I use as a microphone. It is fine, but I would really like to be able to use a bluetooth headset sometimes and not have to talk loudly to a microphone across the room.

    Happy to have any help. Thanks.

    Bluetooth Microphone working for a few minutes then stopping

    Sennheiser GSP 350. Microphone stops working when I open any game

    Wow, ok. I think I've fixed it by accident while fiddling around.

    It appears to be the Realtek audio being the issue here. I don't use my onboard sound card as my headset is a USB headset only and my speakers are plugged into an ASUS sound card.

    Step by step fix:
    • I went into recording devices
    • I enabled STEREO MIX (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    • Then I set that Stereo Mix as the DEFAULT DEVICE (At this point it took over both input and output devices without my permission )
    • Then set my Sennheiser headset as default recording and playback devices in their respective windows even though they both still said they were the default devices when they weren't
    Headset microphone is currently functioning while in game now. I'll update the thread if it goes again. Should I completely disable Realtek audio??? Or will windows just force it to work again?
