Make sure the headset connector and the headset jack on your controller are free from dirt and debris, which may interfere with sound transmission. More importantly, ask your fellow gamers and conversants to check their connectors, as the poor sound you hear may well originate from someone else's headset. 1. Examine and then clean the Xbox hardware. To do this, follow these steps:a. Examine the headset, the cord, and the connector for visible defects. b. Make sure that there is no dirt or debris on the Xbox 360 Headset connector. ? To clean the connector, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. c. Verify that the Xbox 360 Controller operates correctly. ? Verify that you can use the controller to turn the console on and off. d. Firmly insert the Xbox 360 Headset connector in the expansion port under the directional pad (D-pad) and the right stick on the controller. e. If this does not resolve the issue, go to step 2. 2. Test the headset. To do this, record and then listen to a new voice message. To record and then listen to a new voice message, follow these steps:a. Press the Xbox Guide button on the Xbox 360 Controller. b. Select Messages, and then press the A button. c. Select Create New, and then press the A button. d. Select Message, and then press the A button. e. Select a gamertag, and then press the A button. f. Select Add Voice, and then press the A button. g. Put on the Xbox 360 Headset. h. Select Record Message, and then press the A button to start recording a message. i. Speak clearly into the microphone and record your voice for 5 to 15 seconds. j. Press the A button to stop recording. k. Select Play Message, and then press the A button. l. Listen to your recording. ? If you can hear the recorded message, your headset is operating correctly. If the headset still does not function correctly when you use the headset on Xbox Live, you may have to configure Family Settings. Go to step 3. ? If you cannot hear the recorded message, your microphone may be muted, or the earpiece volume may set too low. Verify that the controls are adjusted correctly. 3. Configure Family Settings. Note If you set up a profile for a child on the console, Family Settings lets the owner of the parent profile control who can communicate with the child profile on Xbox Live. In Family Settings, you can enable communication in the child's profile. The default setting for gamers who are under 17 is Friends Only. To configure Family Settings, follow these steps:a. In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button. b. Select Family Settings, and then press the A button. c. Select Xbox Live Controls, and then press the A button. d. Select the child?s profile, and then enter the password of the parent?s profile that is associated with the child's profile. e. Select Privacy and Friends, and then press the A button. f. Select Communications, and then press the A button. g. Select one of the following options: ? Everyone This setting lets you communicate with anyone on Xbox Live. ? Friends Only This setting lets you communicate with people who are on your friends list only. ? Blocked This setting blocks all communication with the headset. Note With this setting, you can still receive new friend requests. h. After you select the option that you want, press the B button until you return to the System section.

Datel game talk xbox 360 wireless headset shuts off.

I have the same exact problem , BUT I did a little trick and it worked somehow, the problem that I had is that : when you turned the headset off by pressing the power button. It won't really go off, you can still hear the sounds from your Xbox, even that the Xbox show you that its disconnected , there will be no logo for the headset when you press the Xbox button on the controller.
Here is what I did to really turn it off.
First you should adjust the "Master Volume " wheel to the end. I mean move it like you are decreasing the volume to the least. so there will be No SOUND. after that hold the power button, and it will really turn off this time , for real.
Hope it worked for you :)

Ive bought a new headset for my xbox360 and i cant hear or speak through it. Ive tried it on another xbox and it works fine why wont it work on mine.

I am confused by your question. It is unclear if you are talking about trying another headset or another x box 360 unit. You said "another sbox and it works fine......" Also are you taking about a wired or wireless headset? Please advise and I will get back to you.

Plantronics 360- It's been working fine until yesterday. I turned it on and the blue light stayed on and did not blink. I can no longer receive or make calls on it. I cannot turn it off. I tried...

It may be time to get a new headset, as this headset sounds like it is in the on mode constantly, but not allowing anything through. You can try to re-pair it up to your phone, but I don't think that is the problem. I believe that your headset may just be outdated and needs to be replaced. Take a look at the link for these Plantronics headsets to see if they might be OK for your phone:

I have a wirless xbox 360 headset and it was working about 4 days ago and I had it on charge when it died when I went to charge it wouldn't charge or turn on and I have had it to long to take back to...

so you are saying that you have a chargeable microsoft headset and the last time you tired to charge it. it would not work... it sounds like your rechargeable battery is dead and you might need a new one. also try you head set on a friends unit and see if it works, at the same time take their chargeable battery and place it in your headset and see if it works that will tell you if it is your headset or the battery..

And im looking for how to connect my wirless headset to my xbox 360 datel head set

  1. First press connect on your console.
  2. Then press and hold the connect button on your earpieces for 3 seconds.
  3. What ever quadrant you have the controller in will be the quadrant associated with the headset.
  4. If you want it to be associated with a controller in another quadrant the press the control button on your headset and it will advance to the next available quadrant.
  5. The quadrant selected will be indicated by the number of beeps you hear.
  6. When the lights on your XBOX roll around and flash one time then your headset is connected.

  • *Note if this is your first time then you need to go to go online at XBOX live to get the latest dashboard update*

Xbox 360 Controller and USB Headset Conflict

Go to control panel, sound and audio, hardware, USB devices, and disable it. The computer thinks the XBox controller is an audio device and is giving it priority.

PC sound problem when using xbox360 controllers

I should have fished around a bit more before posting that I have the same problem.

Go into your control panel
Double Click the "Sounds and Audio Devices"
Select the "Audio" tab
It will show that your "Sound Playback" and "Sound Recording" default device is set to "Headset (XBOX 360 For Windows)" in the drop down menu
In that same drop down select "Sigma Tel Audio" or what ever your regular default is
Click the check box at the bottom left of the window that states, "Use only default devices"
Then click apply and viola you should be able to use your 360 controller with your pc sound

I'm only guessing here, but if you want to use the 360 headset you may have to change these settings again.

Fuzzy sound when plugged in

The Problem is C-media doesn't have proper driver support. It seems to be the on board sound card. The only real fix is to get a different sound card. Hopefully c-media will eventuall address the problem in a new driver.
