I cant get the microphone to work while being hooked up(with a wire) with the voip adapter to my computer. I can get it to work with bluetoooth over voip(so its not because the microphone doesn't work), with the handsfree/headset audio profile, but that sounds absolutely horrible.
1. I have tried with two different computers through 4different programs, and the result is all the same.
2. I have tried with both the wires(the ones connecting from the headset to the adapter) and the result is the same, so I doubt its the wires.
3. I have tried with a different headset on both the aforementioned computers, and it works perfectly, so its not the computers fault either.
4. I can hear sound just fine through the voip adapter, but I get nothing but static sound when trying to use the mic(recording what im saying etc).
I really like the headset, so I hope someone can help me before I am forced to simply return it.
I have the same issue. I thought it was my computers mic input that was broken. So I bought a new USB sound card but have the same problem with that. It seems if I pull out the cable from the headset halfway out of the AD-77 adapter then it register mic sounds, but since it's not all the way plugged in i can't hear anything so not a solution...
I have the same problem!! What is the point of having a seperate iPhone cable if the microphone doesn't work? The sound is coming in fine, but my microphone (when connected by wire) is making a clicking/beating noise! Please Nokia reply!
I also cannot get the microphone to work using the wired cable.
I called Nokia Canada and they won't help me because I bought it from Europe.
I have same problem . BUT, I tried this on my older xp, and it worked! 2 reasons that I came up with might cause this. 1. Windows 7, I guess that someone has tried xp too, so maybe not. 2. Sound driver. I have SoundMAX on my xp, and realtek on w7. Might that be the reason? What drivers do you guys have?
Fixed it for me. I was using the wrong adapter. Needed to use the Y style lead adapter (Ad-77?) and not the solid plastic adapter.
You mention you used the AD-77 adapter to connect to the computer. Well, that's actually the "VoIP adapter" that I guess everybody on this thread has been trying.
The manual states we should use the CA-143U cable with the AD-77 adapter. Was that the cable you used to connect the headset to the AD-77?
It doesn't work for me either, by the way. My understanding is that there's something seriously flawed with the AD-77 "VoIP adapter" design. And because of that, users are unable to take advantage of the full potential of the BH-905i microphone.
That teaches me to read the manual first next time :-) Problem is the amount of cables, accessories which appear to fit but don't work correctly.
The cable I am using does not have a part number but is labelled "Nokia AV" I believe. The other cable is for the I phone I recollect.
shame my "fix" didn;t work for you.
So I tried the voip adapter again, but on my laptop running XP and it worked.
I haven't had a chance to try it on windows 7 again, but I'm baffled as to why there would be a problem on windows 7.
Ok I just made an account just to share the fact that I found THE solution (after scouring forums and pulling out much of my hair) to the stereo headset/ hands free headset conflict issue where you can't hear callers during VOIP connections... ok here goes...
1. Install specific manufacturer bluetooth drivers (the correct one will update the firmware)
2. after installing the headset (mine is the BH-905), the bluetooth audio settings and make sure that the bluetooth stereo and bluetooth hands free are both connected.
3. You should see two new sound options in the playback tab of the windows sound settings: Both of them will be listed as headset earphones, but one will be "hands free"
4. Select the bluetooth handsfree headset as the default communication device
5. Select the bluetooth stereo headset as the default device
6. In the recording tab, select the bluetooth headset hands free microphone as default device
This was the critical step that activated my hands free and stereo headset stereo:
7. Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers. right click on the bluetooth headset, go to properties- > services and make sure "headset" under the list of bluetooth services is checked
There you have it.
Let me know how it goes! \m/
