I have the Sony Elite headset and God of War Ascension MP. I cannot remember whether or not a speaker actually apppears next to your name while talking or not. I always mute everyone (lot of crap talk in that game).
There is a chance that they muted you though. For whatever reason. Tell you what.... add me on your friends list leave a msg that it is about your headset and I will sign on and party up with you to confrim whether or not I can hear you personally. (Send me a PM on this forum if you would like to discuss that option.)
If at that point I cannot. It is one of two things, you haven't connected it correctly (which it sounds like you have) or you got a bum product and you shuold return it.
Ok seems that i found the issue. Everything was connected correctly. the lights on the mic correspond with the manual for what uses i needed it for. I turned the whole headset on when a lobby was searching for other players and worked. I guess at this point if anyone else has an issue with no one hearing you, just hit the power button on your headset for a split second and it reconnects it? --
A BIG THANK YOU to all the replys on this matter,
every single one of you helped
