If I try to use the headset with a 360 controller at te same time, all of the sound becomes "buzzy", even after I switch to speakers or restart the computer. I have to use regedit to change full duplex and half duplex values back to normal. Problem is, I cannot remember the path to the registry values I need to edit, and I was wondering if there were any easier solutions.

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 :)
1 Disconnect all accessories and wired controllers from the Xbox 360. 2 Hold the "Guide" button down for three seconds on any wireless controllers, then respond to the prompt on your television screen to disconnect the controllers from your system.3 turn on the wireless headset by pressing the "Power" button in the center of the earpiece. 4 Press the "Connect" button on the front of your Xbox 360 system. 5 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset. The ring of lights around the power button of the Xbox 360 system should spin and blink once. One of the lights should remain lit up, indicating the port number that the headset is using. If you do not see any lights on the system, you may have a faulty wireless headset.6 Press the "Guide" button on your wireless controller to reconnect the controller to the Xbox 360 system. If you are using a wired controller, you can plug it back into the system.7 Press the "Connect" button on the top of your wireless controller to sync the controller with your system. You should see the connection light around the "Guide" button on the controller light up, indicating which port you are connected to. You should also see a corresponding port light in the ring around the power button of your Xbox 360 system 8 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset until the port light on the headset matches the light on the controller and Xbox 360 system. For example, if you are the first player, the light for port number one should be lit up on the Xbox system, the controller and the headset. When all lights correspond, your headset should be properly connected.
Unfortunately Turtle Beach made and tested their headsets with only the official Microsoft brand Xbox 360 controllers and therefore their headsets actually aren't compatible with all types of third party controllers. The Turbo Fire 2 is one of the controllers that the Turtle Beach headsets are not compatible with.
Hopefully this helped!
-although I'm sure this isn't the news you wanted to hear.
Sorry dude, but it's really sounding like you got a bad headset on your hands. I'd test it on another controller, and if it still happens, then its definitely the headset. If so, just call Microsoft with your serial number and tell them what happened and they will replace it for FREE! The number for their customer support is (800) 469-9269. I've used it many times, and they've replaced 2 of my broken controllers! Good luck!
hi there, just a quicky...but ur wireless headset dosnt sync to the controller it syncs to the xbox :-) it dosnt matter which controller you use its synced with the xbox & not the controller ! if ur using 2 different controllers depending on which you switch on first will take player 1 as will the wireless headset. if after you have switched it on (the xbox) you decide to use the other controller it will obviousley take player 2 slot (even if you switch the other controller off first) as will the headset ! hope this helps :-)
