Hey there, @PaulJamesNicholson. We definitely want to make sure when recording or even those playing with you are able to hear you while playing, so we'd love to look into this further with you!

Since you have already started testing some troubleshooting steps, we'd like to confirm a few more details regarding your experience:

  • Make sure to remove any unsupported third party accessories from the headset.
  • Have you been able to test any other games or apps outside the microphone test site?
  • Was a factory reset or a reboot completed on the headset?
    • If only a reboot, let's make sure to have the microphone setting turned off when doing so.

Once we're able to gather these details, we'll continue digging deeper into the device.
