If you unplug the chat-controller cable from your headset and controller, does the click/static noise go away? If yes, then you need a new chat-controller cable. Email for that. ------- If the noise remains even after you've disconnected the chat cable, then the problem is likely due to the presence of too many other Radio Frequency wireless devices competing with the X31 transmit/receive, especially if you have an 802.11n ("N") router made before Oct 2009. If that's the case, you should definitely contact Turtle Beach at and ask them for help with this.

You just need to change your batteries. If you're using rechargeable batteries, it's likely that they've reached the end of their functional charge cycles and need replacement.

Turtle Beach Ear Force X1's make a ******* noise when ever my controller vibrates, it sounds like static coming from my mic to other gamers.

If you're also using the Play n Charge Kit, that could happen because of noise through the USB bus power. The solution would be to use the X1 without the Play n Charge Kit, and charge your controller when you're not using the headset.
Also, if you unplug the chat-controller cable, does this problem go away? If so, then it might be that your chat-controller cable is going bad and needs to be replaced.

This sounds like you have a faulty talkback cable. You probably either need to purchase a new one or talk to turtle beach support about getting a new one sent out.

My turtle beach has static like noies when i plug it in to my controler

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.

A Bose headset is buzzing

The speaker in that Ear Cup may be blown. You should consider replacing the set with a newer one.

If you listen to this with that static noise you risk serious injury to your ear.

Unit constantly makes a clicking noise.

Electronic filters use static dicharges to filter the air. Unfortunately the make that clicking noise when they discharge. LG calls it a plasma filter. Clean both the regular and the plasma filter to see if that helps.
