  1. Sound won't play out of my headset


    I've tried all the guides I could find on this website but nothing works because my computer just doesn't seem to even realize my headset is plugged in. I've tried this with multiple headphones and headsets and my computer shows that the Mic in all of them is connected but the speaker part of them isn't and I've checked to see if they are disabled and whatever but it just says they aren't plugged in. I don't think this is a problem with the port on my computer as it was just working the other day but hasn't since the new update that happened either a day or a few days ago. If anyone has any answers it would be appreciated.

    :)

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Sound won't play out of my headset :p

  3. Headset not playing sounds after mute and unmute

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    Before we proceed, I would like you to answer the following question:


    • Did you connect your headset to any other device and check if the issue re-occurs?
    I suggest you to set your headset as default and check.To do so, please follow the steps below:


    • Type sound in the search bar.

    • Right click on
      headset/microphone
      , click on default.
    If issue persists,

    As you said with other headset it is working fine,so,the issue might occur with your headset only.

    In that case, I recommend you to contact the headset support.

    Sound won't play out of my headset

    Bluetooth single-ear headset for playing music and other sounds?

    Hi,

    I have a Jabra BT250v bluetooth headset and a Toshiba Portege G900 (running Windows Mobile 6).

    I want to be able to play music and other sounds (such as satnav instructions) through my Jabra headset, but am having no luck as far.

    It seems that the problem is that when I get a list of bluetooth services for the Jabra, it only lists "hands free" and not anything like "headset". Maybe I'm wrong that this is the problem.

    Can somebody please suggest a single-ear headset that definitely plays music and such from a Windows Mobile 6 device?

    Many thanks,

    Jim
