How Can I Turn on the Microphone for my Turtle Beach Headset?
Turning on the microphone included with your Turtle Beach headset is possible by either flipping or pushing the microphone button available on the headset or on the cord of the headset itself. Do not press too hard, as this can damage the inner wiring of the microphone, which may result in the cutting out of your voice or poor sound quality.
Once you have successfully flipped or pressed the microphone button on your Turtle Beach headset, you will hear a slight tone that begins with a lower pitch and works its way up to a high pitch, indicating that the microphone is in use and that it is no longer muted.

If you want to turn your microphone off when using your Turtle Beach headset, you can do so by turning the microphone away from you (for a muffled result), or by flipping or pressing the microphone button again. If you are unsure of how to turn off your Turtle Beach headset’s particular microphone, you can also reference the official guide or user manual to determine the best course of action for your specific make and model.

Whether you prefer to increase the bass and treble in your sound feedback or if you require additional volume boosts in one ear, the sound customization options are virtually endless once you begin setting up your very own ‘Modes’ with your Turtle Beach headset.
