Will headset work with my mobile device?
Our headsets will work with most mobile devices using the 3.5 mm headset jack.
There are two headset audio jack standards, Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) and Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP). Our headsets use a CTIA standard connector which will work with the majority of mobile devices. Some mobile devices use the OMTP connector standard, if your mobile device uses an OMTP standard connector, you may experience connection issues. You can purchase a third party adapter cable to use the headset with an OMTP device.
I cannot hear sound from the headphones or I am not getting any response from the microphone. How do I resolve this problem?
Make sure all of the connections are correct.
– Check that the microphone is plugged all the way into the head set.
– If you can verify that audio connections are working using an alternate microphone and speakers.
-See if the headset works with another computer or device.
– Check your audio settings to make sure the speakers and microphone are enabled and not muted or volume turned down too low. In many cases, the microphone on a computer is disabled or muted.
– Try to disable any audio software specifically for your audio adapter or other third party audio software and use the default audio controls in your operating system.
– Check the audio settings in the game or application you are using. If you have tried the steps above and the headphones or microphone are still not working, please contact Kingston technical support for assistance.
