  1. Headset and mic are shown as plugged in but they are not


    I use Turtlebeach Recon 50 headset and microphone. Since the last week I’ve encountered an issue because my computer shows this headset and mic as plugged in but they are not. When I plug in the headset, I have a problem with sound because it comes through the headset but there is no sound over the microphone. Reinstalling drivers didn’t help. Plugging into different jacks is also has no avail

    :)

    Headset with Mic "not plugged in," clearly plugged in... Win10

    We would like to know more about the issue by answering the following questions below:

    • Have you tried using other headsets with mic on your computer and check if it's working fine?
    • Have you also tried to insert or use that headset with mic that came with your computer to other computers or devices? This will help us isolate the issue if it's related to your Windows 10 PC or to the headset with mic.
    We look forward to your response.

    Headset Mic "Not Plugged In"

    How odd. I tried using both ports for the mic and headset before and it still said the mic wasn't plugged in, but now it does and the mic is working. I'm not sure what changed overnight, but it would appear the problem is fixed. Sorry to waste your time.
