Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Use USB headphones & mic with Windows Mixed Reality

I want to use my Steelseries USB headset and microphone with the VR headset but it appears to only support headphones with the regular audio plug connected directly to the VR headset. How can i use my USB headphones and mic?

The sound works fine through the headset but the microphone doesn't integrate.


  • So this board is dead i guess?

  • Pretty much.
    Windows central has an ok wmr board, I'm sure there was chat on there about gaming headsets.

    I did try this out last night although I only have a plantronics Skype headset.

    With it set as default device & all other sounds coming through the headset wmr still outputs to the laptop speakers, didn't test the mic though.

    This does seem very weird, but hey hopefully some future updates will sort this.
