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

If the wireless controllers won't
connect under any circumstances even with the Charge-and-Play Cable then
you most likely have a problem with a board inside your 360, i think
it's like the RF board or something, mind you, the C-P cord only forces
through an electrical charge and does not force the controller and
console to connect, it just works when your batteries are low, in the
event that your console is faulty, you can purchase RF boards and
replace them yourself (voids the warranty but takes 20 minutes) or send
it into XBox HQ (gives you more warranty but takes like 6 months) .
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. =)
I find that turning off the controller and then back on USUALLY works, but not always. Sometimes it needs more than one try, I'm having trouble with mine right now as well. Try different combinations of unplugging the headset and the controller then back in. Good luck.
Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...
an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB
sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It
sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even
if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after
the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the
360 peripheral plugged in.
I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.
The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root
hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use
another root hub by doing ONE of the following: 1) Fill up your usb
ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub,
then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things,
depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub. 2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral. 3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.
NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.
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.
