Hi @mrmorgan ,
Has it worked OK before when connected to the controller?
If it has worked before when connected to the controller, there may be a problem with the controller’s headphone connection. What is the make and model number of the controller?
If it has never worked when connected to the controller, as there are two “common” wiring connection modes that apply to headphone jack wiring, perhaps you need an adapter which reverses the microphone connection in the headphone jack plug to suit the particular wiring mode in use by the device that you are connecting the headphones to.
Here’s an image showing the two common connection “modes”.

Here’s an example of such an adapter. (if you click on the smaller box below the adapter image on the webpage, you’ll see how it works to alter the microphone connection.
There are other suppliers online, just search for 3.5mm 4-Pole TRRS Standards Bi-Directional Adapter (CTIA to OMTP) to get results.
