My skull candy headphones are not working on my ps4 I checked settings every thing is good I we t to adjust microphone level I can’t hear my voice and in a party with my friends I can hear them but they can’t hear me,Although it was working 2 months ago
I didn’t understand what you meant.@Phteve-the-Rock
PS controllers receive updates like the PS does. Some headsets become incompatible after such an update.
You just need to wait for the controller to receive a new one and that's it.
If you are not sure it's this, you can test with a different headset, different controller or try the headset with a mobile device to see if the Mic Works.@StunningOink141
Next full function 6.50 will be around March but you still need to do more testing with other controllers and other devices FIRST...@StunningOink141
Some Skull candy headphones have a replaceable cable, so it has 2 x 3.5mm jacks with 1 both ends these both need to work at the same time...Because these headsets support disconnecting cables you can Get the jacks to be loose at ether end...
They can also be connected the Wrong way round after lack of use because they support both 3.5mm at each end... If you have skull candy bluetooth headset and have to use the cable to DS4 then some people can put the cable in the wrong way round as there both 3.5mm... it can also take more pressure to get the MIC working at the headset end...
As you don't state what model then We have to rule that out first...
With the skull candy headset, the 3 black rings aka 4 pole 3.5mm jack has to go into the DS4, the 2 ring 3 pole jack goes into the headset... No mic usage has been caused by the users before, rushing and putting the wrong jack into the head set end... Other users have made that mistake, other companies now use 2.5mm jack to avoid this issue...
With the cable the wrong way round the mic on the Cable will not work as it has no power but audio does...
Rule that out first...
The other issue to rule out is that you have not just gone and got a New DS4 version 2 in the last 2 months as the DS4 Version 2 has been killing Mics with over voltage during crashes or shut down... Astro A10s users had this happen... if you stopped playing 2 months ago because you had a game crash the DS4 version 2 could have over driven the mic to were it needs higher voltage to work correctly now and not the 2volts of DS4 feed..
Some finds to fault find...
I tried my mic on other devices on all devices my mic worked I tried with other controllers they didn’t work and I didn’t stop playing for two months but when this thing suddenly happed I had exams so I was not free to report it that’s why I just reported it and I’m using skullcandy ink’d 1@GraphiteGB
Ok going with they no longer work with the 2Volt 350mili amp feed of the DS4 and require the higher 3 volts as their tolerance has fallen out side the DS4 supplied feed as they got older and updates to the DS4...
I didn’t quite understand what you said. And at the end what should I do ?@GraphiteGB
And if you meant that I should by the new version of the ds4 I tried it with a new version of the ds4 cause I have both old one and new one none worked@GraphiteGB
Nothing they won't work with DS4 ever again as they have worn out and become incompatable with Ds4 feed as they require higher voltage feed supplied by Android and PCs of 3 volts@StunningOink141
So hat should I do get a new headphones. For your knowledge I tried another headset which is Bose sound true ultra it’s brand new I bought it like 4 months ago@GraphiteGB
Bose won't work
There built for apple crap and never have worked correctly they require android spec mic supplied to run of 2 volts... the digital controlls for apple compliance mean all beats and bose junk built for apple have never worked correctly from day one as they supply Apple cables...
This is why SIE supplied an Android spec unit with the PS4 Skull candy units were meant to be Android first devices...@StunningOink141
Built for android not Ios manual mute button, manual volume control dial... if you have to use it on mobile
Or built for Console headset... from proven console headset builders not mobile brands
But it doesn’t make sense that the headphones were working and suddenly stopped working but I asked most of the people I know who play ps4 the all told me they use mobile headsets and many of them use the same as mine@GraphiteGB
Cause I don’t want to risk buying the Sony gold wireless headset and then if it didn’t work then I lost money for nothing or is it going to work because this headset is wireless
But why is it only me my friends use mobile head phones it works with them but it doesn’t with me
Hello you didn’t answer my last two questions???@GraphiteGB
