I'd bet almost anything it's the controller as the mic is an incredibly simple piece of equipment.

I have never modded a controller and don't know a ton about how they're wired, but I'd guess you pulled off of the line that goes to the mic or messed up a resistor. If the mic gets power in the circuit after the RoL it's possible that the LEDs you used draw too much amperage and aren't letting enough get to the mic.
But I have no idea how the controller is laid out, so hopefully someone who does could shed a little more light on this.

It could be that the leads to the mic plug hub need to be re-soldered to the main board of the controller.
If the that headset plug has gone in and out enough, it could have weakened the solder bond. Happens to TV's alot with their A/V plug ins
Cables pulled in and out often; weakening the solder joint. I've had to do this with two of my TV's
It could be something else too, but this is where I would start. You need a really good soldering iron for this repair. Not some flimsy 25 watt iron from Walmart. Factories use Non Leaded solder now, so you need higher temperatures to get it flowing.
The mic might be getting power, but it could be the Data lines have a weak joint
Keep me / all of us posted. I could be of further assistance

There's only a few parts between the MIC and the MCU, R10, R55, C10, C17, so make sure those are all in place or don't have any solder splash on them. It could even be a bad solder joint on the MCU causing it, really hard to tell without poking around in there a bit.
