Hi! I received these headphones as a gift recently and I noticed that the lights do not turn on for 3.5mm connection to an xbox controller. Is there any way that I can get the lights to work for xbox? Perhaps through a usb c to 3.5mm cable?

No sounds from Xbox whatsoever. Are these required to be plugged into a pc first and download a app to then be used on the Xbox? Instructions claim to plug straight into the controller and go and I have no sound. 

Asked by: ChaseT
Please update the software of your Xbox controller to ensure you're on the latest version and try again. Also, double-check if the headset's volume isn't muted or turned all the way down.

I can't seem to figure out how to get the microphone to work on my dell gaming laptop. The sound works fine just can't seem to figure it out I tried plugging in the usb type-c to type-a with the jack plugged in as well.

Asked by: EmilyF
First, please make sure that the microphone is flipped down with the red LED off. Then, double-check your laptop is using the correct recording device (Quantum Headset). Then check the properties of your headset and set it as the default communication device. If you need further assistance, please reach out to our Product Specialists at https://bit.ly/30GsbuW

Are you able to independently Adjust the volume between chat and in game music

Asked by: Backlash
Our JBL Quantum 400 has Game-Chat Balance Support. You can adjust game-chat balance by rotating the dial-up and down. You will feel a notch in the dial that indicates 50 games and 50 chat when you rotate the dial. Or you can see the status on the top bar of the JBL QuantumENGINE.
