Adjust headset volume.

Sometimes players not getting any voice output might be because the headset volume is set too low. To fix it, follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Press the PS button and select the mic icon.

  • After that, in the mic option, switch it to the wireless controller and select ‘”Adjust Mic Level”. If people can’t hear you and you can hear them clearly, it’s because of the lower microphone level. So, increase the slider to the middle to increase your microphone level.

  • Select the correct output device by pressing the PS button and then navigating to the Sound icon. In the output device option, select the device that you’re using and the “Disable Game Chat Audio” option.

  • Also, make sure you’re out of the party chat. To confirm it, go to the game base option by pressing the PS button, check your party chat, and leave it if you are in it. You won’t be able to hear anyone in the game chat if you’re on party chat.

After that, close the game, turn off the console, unplug everything from the outlet and leave it for two minutes. Plug everything back in and see if your microphone is working normally or not.
