How do I setup my headset on my XBOX ONE?
Setup on an XBOX One is a simple process. Just plug your USB transmitter into any USB port on the console. Then, with no cables plugged into the headset, press and hold the power button on the left earcup of the headset until the lights on the headset and USB transmitter all glow solid green. An on screen notification will also pop up stating that the headset has been assigned to your profile.
My mic is very quiet, how can I increase the mic volume?
If your microphone seems a little quitter than it should be, unfortunately there is no setting within the XBOX One or on the headset that can increase your microphone volume.
There is, however a firmware update available for the AG7 headset that might fix an undersensitive mic. Just visit www.pdp.com/firmwareupdate and download the firmware update tool under the AG7 headset. Then run the tool and follow the instructions in the update program.
Why do I hear an echo when I talk online?
There are several factors that can contribute to an echo in your AG9 headset.
- The echo may originate from the person who is talking and not necessarily from the person who hears the echo. For example, if you only hear the echo when talking to a specific person and not when talking to others, the problem concerns the headset connection of the person who is echoing, not your headset connection
- An echo may originate from a bad internet connection.
To make sure the issue is with the headset and not one of the factors above, test the headset on a different Xbox One console if you are able to do so.
Why can't I hear myself in the headset when I talk?
Voice monitoring is not an included feature on the AG7 headset. If you are having microphone issues please contact PDP customer support.
My audio is flipped. I can hear sounds from the right on the left side and vice versa. How do I fix this?
In order to fix flipped audio in your XBOX One headset there are two ways to possibly fix your issue
1. Unplug the transmitter from the XBOX One console, then reconnect the transmitter.
2. Fully power down your XBOX One and disconnect the power cable from the back. Then, reconnect and turn on your XBOX.
If neither of these options fix your issue, confirm that the headset itself is having the issue and NOT the game/console. Test your headset on another game or console (if available) to see if you can replicate the issue. If your headset operates properly, then the issue is not with the headset.
How do I turn on/off the earcup LEDs?
To turn the lights off in your AG headset, first make sure the lights on the headset are glowing solid green. Then just hold down the MODE button for about 5-10 seconds.
Does this headset work on an XBOX 360?
Unfortunately the AG7/AG9 headset does not work on the XBOX 360 as the XBOX 360 cannot output game audio solely through a USB port like the XBOX One can. If you need a headset that is XBOX 360 compatible, we recommend our line of Universal Headsets
Does this headset work on a PC/Mac?
Unfortunately, the AG7 is not designed nor supported for use with a PC or Mac.
How do I use the headset with a mobile device/cell phone?
Your headset comes with a gray 3.5mm line in cable. Simply connect one end of that cable to the Line in port on your headset and the other end to the headphone port on your mobile device. The AG7 does not connect to your mobile device wirelessly.
