Microphone doesn't pick up any sound
I bought a second hand pair of Hyperx Cloud Alpha headphones. First thing that I observed was, the microphone wasn't picking any sound.
I tried different types of solutions online but with no result.
I plugged the microphone directly into the microphone jack and it worked. After that I verified if the microphone line on the cable was continuous, it was.
In the end I took apart the headphones and found this:
There wasn't any resistor where it's showing on the board, the question is, does someone know the value of that resistor?
Or if a dirrect connection will work without affecting the microphone/headphones.
These are the photos for the pcb backside:
