PS4 microphone not working

I have used 3 different headsets / earphones in 2 different controllers, but my voice still isn't being picked up. I can hear everything in the party completely fine, but no one can hear me. I've tried going into Settings > Sound and Screen > Audio Output Settings but the option to choose 'Output to Headphones' isn't there either when my headset is clearly plugged into my controller all the way. I can't really play any of the games I usually do as it involves communication, so the entire aspect is ruined for me currently. I have no idea how this has happened, or how to fix it. It can't be my controllers or the numerous headsets I have used, so it must be the PlayStation itself? But I don't understand how... Can someone help me out please?

The Headsets don't run from Sound and screen.. there External "audio devices"...

So run from the Devices > audio devices menu > thats were you select the audio out put and input sources...

From 3.5mm or USB or PS camera... only..

I've just tried it from here and already have the "Input Device" and "Output Device" set to "Headset Connected to Controller" which is correct. My headset is fully plugged into my controller, everything is up full volume, "Output to Headphones" is set to all audio and still I cannot hear my voice when I go into "Adjust Microphone Level", the only thing I am able to hear is the noise when turning my mic on and off, nothing else.

I’m having the exact same issue. Weirdly enough, I tried the vr earphones and they picked up my voice(was very echo-y) but now I plug them in and my voice is still not picked up!

I have a solution for my issue w/ps4. It was having the same problem many are having. I went into settings > sound and screen > audio output settings : change the priority from linear to bitstream (dolby). Some headsets just arent compatible with linear output.

DS4 compliance on 3.5mm..

SIE dont support APPLE controll box and inline mic products specs...

So to confirm the DS4 compliance is still working. Can not be done with designed for Apple products...

The fact that some still worked was an error only...

 

After firmware 3.50 released it was built to kill Apple volume controll boxes off on DS4 due to the constant feed back and perminant open nosie broadcast by Iphone 5 ear pods sIE took action and seamed to kill them off...

 

DS4 revision 3-5 were also built to kill these off... with no support for Apple volume controll units that caused constant noise on chat...

 

DS4 revision 5 also called the DS4 version 2 with light bar view able on track pad was again rebuilt inside and the DS4 supports even less controll box units and disables even more mics...

 

So any headset with a digital controll box for mobile was never meant to have a working mic as SIE don't support them...

 

DS4 was only ever meant to support Manual volume controll and manual mute button on inline 3.5mm cable mics...

 

One primary reason for this is because SIE DS4 does not run on Apples specs on the mic feed...

3Volts 500micro amps... is IOS mic feed...

2Volts 350micro amps... is DS4 compliance mic feed...  

 

Why your builds Used to work on DS4 revision 3-4 is the real question if they are built to work on IOS they should not have worked since firmware 3.50 on 3.5mm... the work around that people used after 3.50 was not supported by SIE...

I'm using Tritton Kama's, not iPhone earphones. I heard that the iPhone earphones don't work anymore, but my mic literally stopped working whilst I was on GTA yesterday afternoon out of the blue. Other people I speak to in party chat don't run official Sony headsets and their mic works fine.

I've got the exact same issue, and the thing is that there are no error codes to guide you or anything like that, this is the first time I've ever seen this happen and you're the first person I've seen this happen to too. Sony needs to give a clear statement about the headset issues, otherwise all of us are wasting our money thinking it's the controllers or the headsets.

Same problem with both TurtleBeach P4c and AKG earbuds. Both worked yesterday, now today no one in my party can hear me. Thing is though, I can hear myself and the mic adjust settings are picking me up. Makes absolutely no sense!

Bro I'm using the same ones ! I was using them yesterday fine and this morning the S8 AKG earphones mic stopped working and another pair of headphones mic has stopped working. Then I plugged in some older skull Candy inkd D2 earphones and the mic was working. Definitely some sort of update to cancel out the mics from these to stop working

Mine has started doing it too. I just replaced my ps4 with a new one 2 months ago and got 2 new controllers too. I use chat every other night, and last night my mic stopped working randomly. I then tried my flatmates ps4, along with his controller and headphones which werent working either. Used 4 different mics including samsung and sony, between 3 different controllers which vary in age. *****. 2 other friends in chat can talk and i can hear them. Does ps have an answer does anybody know?
