Found another mic solution (if you have a non compatible headset)

#1hobs2605Posted 12/12/2012 12:16:35 AM
I have a Tritton AXPRO and was pretty salty that I couldn't use my $150 headset on this system and that the on-pad mic couldn't be used for chat.
After trying a few pair of earphones to no avail, I gave up until I break down and buy the wii-u headset eventually.
Well I was playing BF3 on PS3 today and adjusted my boom mic when it dawned on me...THE BOOM MIC!!!
Yup, it works. :-D

ugh nevermind...
My mic IS live and very clear from what I'm told, BUT, the chat sounds leave the tv, and go to the headphone jack and I can't hear what anyone else is saying.
:-(

what do you mean? It was turned too far outward so I turned it in some lol. Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you.
The boom mic on my tritton is detachable and has a 3.5mm prong.

is there an option I'm missing to keep chat sounds on the tv? PS3 had it on the first black ops I believe.

I connected my 3.5mm from the headset into the WiiU, I can only hear but I can't talk.

I have the Universal PdP Afterglow headset.

Yeah, pancake sorry. I got all excited when I saw the mic icon light up that I posted before I realized that I wouldnt hear anyone.

I sent a ticket to PdP, lets see if they help me solve the problem. I mean in the box it says its WiiU compatible, so either its false advertisement or its just a problem. On my Ps3 and Pc the chat works, but not on the WiiU

How do I test to see if a set-up is going to work or not? I can use my Turtle Beach X11 that is hooked up to an Ear Force DSS. The DSS is hooked up to the TV since my TV has an optical audio port. Switch the TV to external speakers and I get sound. T

he X11 has a USB cable for power, a green audio line that I plug into the DSS, and I have the pink mic line leftover. Of course, i can just plug the pink wire to the GamePad, but I have no idea if sound is going through or not if I talk.

I also have been using the Pro controller a lot lately, and just keep the GamePad in the cradle.

Connect the 3.5mm into the Wii Game Pad, click display so it shows everything in the gamepad. You will be able to hear, and if you get the chatting signal next to your name then it works.
