So I have been trying to figure out how to get my microphone to detect my voice for over an hour now. I am currently using a windows 10 desktop, a Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 50P (which has worked in the past but has stopped detecting my voice. I am not sure if it's because my CPU is not recognizing my microphone (detachable) is part of the headphones/speaker.

- I have fully updated all my audio drivers using an application called Drive Easy then restarted my CPU
- I have set my Realtek High Definition Audio device to the default windows audio then restarted my CPU
- My microphone is set as the default device
-

- My headphones are working
- I am using the ports in the back. The green jack is in the middle one for headphones and my microphone jack is in the pink/red one for microphone.

I am so tempted to throw these headphones out the window right now, any help would be great to save some headphones
 
When you known on the microphone, can you see the volume meter jump?
Have you tried your heafset in known-to-work setup (a friend computer, laptop with separate connectors)?

Go to closest discount store, there should be standalone microphones for like $2, and get one to test.

Turns out when my parents were vacuuming my room, the connector for my headset got caught into the vacuum therefore causing the microphone jack to get scratched up. I plan on getting a new connector to see if problem fixes.
