    Every time we get into an Xbox Live party, I can hear his game audio, as well as myself speaking a half second later. Can anyone help? (They're using a headset for both microphone and sound)

    Microphone issues

    Hi Michael,

    Here are the possible reasons why you're getting an error "The microphone did not pick anything up" when using it:

    • Incorrect settings (microphone is not set as default device)
    • Corrupted or outdated driver
    • Faulty device

    For us to isolate the issue, we'd like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made to your computer prior to this issue(e.g. Windows updates)?
    • Have you tried connecting other microphone to your computer?
    • Have you tried connecting the microphone to the other computer?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Recording Audio Troubleshooter to find and repair problems with recording sound. We also suggest checking if your microphone is set as your default recording device. For troubleshooting steps, please see
    Geethu B's on this
    link.

    We're looking forward to your reply.

    Microphone Issue

    Hi
    Mateviar,

    Upon analyzing the details you have provided, it is possible that the issue is with the
    hardware

    device
    itself. However, we need to make sure that is the case. To isolate this matter, we have some questions for you:


    • Were there any changes made before the issue occurred?

    • Have you tried using the microphone to another PC?

    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We suggest that you run the
    Hardware and Device Troubleshooter. To run the
    Troubleshooter, follow these steps:


    • On the search bar, type
      Troubleshooting
      and hit
      Enter.

    • Choose
      Hardware and Sound.

    • Click on
      Hardware and Devices

  4. My friend is having issues with their microphone

    Friends can't hear me with microphone on windows 10

    Hi Mr Jagger,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Did you check listening with other headphones?

    The issue cab be resolved by making Microphone as the default device and updating the sound card drivers.

    Make sure that the microphone that you are using is not disabled and is set as default in the computer. Follow these steps to check this:


    • Right click on the volume icon and select “Recording devices”.

    • Now, right click on an empty space and select, “Show disconnected devices” and “Show disabled devices”.

    • Select “Microphone” and click on “Properties” and make sure that the microphone is enabled.

    • You may also check if the microphone that you are using is set as default.
    Also suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.


    • Type “Troubleshooter” in the Search box and hit enter.

    • Select “Hardware and Sound” from the Troubleshooter Window.

    • Select “Playing Audio” under Sound option.

    • Follow the On Screen instructions.
    Hope it helps.
