  1. Headset & mic shown as plugged in when not, mic not working when plugged in


    Hello, I've been having this issue where my headset and microphone (Turtlebeach Recon 50) is showing as plugged in when disconnected.

    When plugging in, sound comes through the headset but no sound goes the microphone.

    I've deleted and reinstalled the drivers multiple times over to no avail.

    Tried plugging into my front and rear jacks.

    Tried countless other possible fixes as well but I cannot seem to fix this issue.



    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    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.

    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.
