So, i've had the headset for 3 or so months by now, it's wired so it just plugs into the controller, but it refuses to turn on. It stopped working as I was playing a game with my friend, and hasn't started to work since. I can't talk to my friend, or hear them via the headset, only through the television. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Your headset lasted 3 months. dang thats amazing. the life span of a headset it a week.kidding.if u buy ur headset at bestbuy and it breaks u can take it back and get a new one for free because bestbuy is close with microsoft
Ive had my mic since july and it just now starting to break, also its because the plug on the mic isnt connecting so you have to press really hard or turn off the xbox and plug it in then turn it back on

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.
If by not syncing you mean it flashes the whole ring when you plug the controller in the USB and won't identify? If so I think the problem may be that you have other USB devices plugged in at the same time. Unplug all the USB and plug the controller in by itself. I've had issues with this for awhile myself. I had a bluetooth and another wireless kb/mouse. So I unplugged everything tried it by itself and it seems to identify perfectly.
Conclusion: Unplug all the USB devices and plug the Afterglow 360 controller by itself and that should solve the problem. =)
