Keywords: USB, audio, Skype, microphone Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


My system is the following. Hardware: Lenovo ThinkPad T460 OS: Linux host (kernel 4.8.15, distribution Fedora 25) with Windows 10 guest VirtualBox: 5.1.12 with extension packs on both ends of the same version Additional hardware: Logitech USB headset H650e connected via xHCI USB 3.0 controller Additional software: Skype under Windows 10 guest


  • during an audio call via Skype, the microphone of the USB headset will cease to function
  • the Skype connection bars turn red and a warning appears that no microphone is connected
  • the behaviour sometimes corrects itself but can not be predicted and is hard to reproduce

My VBox.log is attached.
