OK OK OK, the lowriders use dolby digital with WMA playback, and there is a setting in ur xbox settings where u can change that. BUT UR NOT DONE YET. press the Xbox button, go to settings go to prefrences, go to mic and check the box that sais "play through both." and now u can hear the ppl and talk. however, what they dont tell u is that the mic interfears with the WMA, so all u need to do is just buy an inline volume adjuster at walmart (wally world) for like 3 bux (the one that coems with it is regualted by FDA or wtvr and has no sound which is verry unlike skull candy). THESE headsetes arnt cheaply made at all 2 tell the truth, they shooda came with instructions, but once u get em going, they r insane! i have a pair of turtle beach x5s and its nice, but not as good asthe lowriders. and anotehr feture they dont tell u, if u get a volume adjuster with the "base gain" swicth, it works on the lowriders, so u can add a little rumble and umph to ur headset.

Sandman you need to explain it well enough to make sense you make no sense your just trying to sound all technical. All you need to really do is buy a "inline volume control for a 2.5mm jack" the jack size for the xbox mics are 2.5mm and that is what cord you need to plug it into your controller. This inline volume control for the 2.5mm jack gives you headset volume so you can control the voice volume seperate from the game volume.

I have just been looking up this problem across the internet and decided to investigate with the small number of controllers I have. It seems that the Skullcandy Lowrider SGS's mics do not work, period. When in fact they only fail to function when connected to the main wired and wireless controllers made for the Xbox 360, both white and black. (I don't have any special red/blue ones)

But what I do have is the off-brand made "Madcatz" wired controller.
You may have a hard time looking it up via internet searches because it is a poorly rated controller. The body is cut down near the triggers, it feels too light compared to the regular controllers, and some of the buttons are configured differently.

However, these are the only controllers I have found to work with the Lowrider headphone/mics.

If you find anything else that works... post it up so people know, cause they really are cool headphones.

My skullcandy agent headphones are only working on the left side,,,,,its blank on the left side


Sounds like there may be a problem with the cord.
Try plugging in your headphones and playing some music and moving the cord around. If the sound cuts in and out then you have a lose connection and will need to replace your headphones.

Skullcandy lowrider xbox 360 headset microphone not working. I can hear but mic dosen't work


Either it's not plugged in all the way or there is a short in the line somewhere. I would pop the ear cover off to look at the wiring, it could have come unsoldered.

No sound


Try messing with the plug. Otherwise your wires might have broken somewhere. This happened to me from using them so much, and it wasn't just these. It happened to a pair of expensive sony earphones. Just happens when you use them a lot.

Lowrider 360 Skullcandy Headphones don't seem to work on my xbox.


The thing you need to realize is, the headphones are not defective. Headphones cannot choose to individually make voices/game noises/music louder or quieter. Either they play audio or they dont.
What your issue is, is configuration with the xbox (the soucre FEEDING the headphones) Only there can you choose the amount of voice/game noises/music and their respective levels.
Below is a link that headphone company has on their site for the settings you need to change in your xbox.
http://www.skullcandy.com/manuals-and-drivers.html (see the second section, second option doesn "xbox settings for lowriders")
Any further settings will need to be assisted by an xbox support person.

Jack plug broken off


Buy a $4.00 1/8" jack replacement from Radio Shack - part # 274-0869, which has small screw connectors that don't need soldering.
Strip about 1" of the braided insulation at the old jack end, which will expose 4 very small wires: Blue, Green, Red, Copper.

Attach the Green & Copper wires to the tallest pin on the replacement jack.

Attach the Red to the shortest pin, and the Blue to the medium pin.

Remember to slide the jack cover onto the headphone cord before attaching any wires!

This works great, I just did it.

Weird sound.


You will have to test the wiring from the plug to the speakers individually with a volt ohm meter. Wires this thickness break or go intermittent easily. Don't take them apart if they are still on warranty. Take them back to where you bought them and get replacements. Be sure to take the original packaging if you still have it and the sales receipt.
