Microsoft LifeChat 3000 -- no sidetone RRS feed

  • Question

  • My LifeChat 3000 produces no side tone in my earphones when I speak into the microphone.  The microphone works (that is, people can hear me during chat sessions), but I cannot hear myself when I speak, and this is very annoying.  I assume that the headset is supposed to produce side tone.  I'm running Vista Home Premium version.  I have reinstalled the driver a couple of times, but it doesn't help.  The device doesn't show up under the Universal Serial Bus Controllers, but rather under Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  This headset does works okay on my laptop (I get side tone), which runs Windows XP.  Thank you.

  • Yes, there is no side-tone. Its pretty fundamental that you need to hear what you are saying into the mic!
    I too have found no way of getting side-tone other than uncovering one ear.
