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
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.
