How To Adjust Headset Volume

First of all, you’ll need to have your headset connected, turn your console on and sign in.

Once that is all done, open up the Menu with the Xbox button on your controller.

On this first tab, you should see a speaker symbol at the bottom, scroll down and select it.

In the Audio and Music settings you have just opened up, you’ll see three sliders.

Headset volume will change both of the other two, it will make all sound from your headphones quieter.

Headset chat mixer will let you change whether your friends or your game are louder, letting you listen to your squad or the virtual world better.

Finally, Mic Monitoring will let you hear yourself, this is a quick and easy way to check if your mic is broken or if you are having internet connection issues when your squad say they can’t hear you.
