Question about Voyetra Turtle Beach Ear Force X3 Wireless Headphones for Xbox 360
THis problem is usually caused by an older controller because the jacks are loose and don't make a good connection with the talkback cable. Try a new controller to see if the problem is fixed. Also, try cleaning the connections on the talkback cable with some alcohol to remove any corrosion on the metal.

The solution to this problem depends on which model Turtle Beach headset you have. Some (older) models use Infrared (IR) transmit/receive, while the newer models use Radio Frequency (RF) 2.4GHz wireless transmit/receive. If you have an X31 or X41, you have an RF headset. If you hear crackles/pops in the sound with one of these, try unplugging the chat/controller cable and listen to the soundtrack (no chat, just for a test). If the static noises go away when you unplug the controller cable, that means the controller cable is probably the cause of the problem. That cable is easily replaceable and you can get them directly from Turtle Beach. If the noises do not go away when you disconnect the controller cable, then you probably have an RF Interference (RFI) problem -- when too many RF wireless devices are in use all in the same place and at the same time. If you have a wireless "N" WiFi router, then this could be the problem. See if you can turn off your N router (temporarily!) and listen to the Xbox through the headset. If the static noise goes away, then you know the problem is interference from the N router. If this is the problem, you'd be best off contacting Turtle Beach tech support and ask them for possible solutions to the problem, as it can get a little complicated. But they'll make good on it. I hope that helps!
