The headsets that are used run on the same radio frequency at the routers broadcast. Go to the routers settings and change the radio band to the highest possible. Also, if possible move your console closer to your router.

My son has a xbox360 and were trying to get xbox live to connect and it wont we had it working just fine on his brothers hes not home so we hooked it up to the other xbox 360 and it wont connect


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.

try taping it down.

Xbox mic can talk but not hear


What type of mic? Plugs into controller, Wireless, Aftermarket (like X3's etc.)

Make sure your settings are correct. Hit the globe button (big xbox button) and go into preferences, I believe in preferences (could be console settings) under audio settings you can mute it, or change volume....just make sure you dont have it muted or something odd. If its wireless make sure volume is turned up. If they are Turtle Beach type make sure you (1) have fresh/charged batteries (2) have your audio splitters hooked up properly (3) and transmitter powered up. (4) Make sure volume button is turned up, on the ear piece itself (5) Make sure your audio settings are correct on the output from the console (6) If you have a wireless controller make sure it is fully charged as well.
Hopefully this helps.....
If you have any additional info it would be helpful.

I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Xbox 360 headset


is it the wireless headset or the wired one? if its the wired one make sure it isnt muted and all of that. if it isnt then go to the xbox 360 dashboard and go to the far right into system settings then click parental controls and see if voice chat is restriced and change settings in accordance with your problem. if you have the wireless headset hold down the little button by the 1234 lights until they all staryt blinking in order then hold the same button on your 360 console until the lights begin to spin. after that they should link up and work. If you made your account a child account then its more then likely your parentla controls blocking your communications.

Make sure the headset connector and the headset jack on your controller are free from dirt and debris, which may interfere with sound transmission. More importantly, ask your fellow gamers and conversants to check their connectors, as the poor sound you hear may well originate from someone else's headset. 1. Examine and then clean the Xbox hardware. To do this, follow these steps:a. Examine the headset, the cord, and the connector for visible defects. b. Make sure that there is no dirt or debris on the Xbox 360 Headset connector. ? To clean the connector, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. c. Verify that the Xbox 360 Controller operates correctly. ? Verify that you can use the controller to turn the console on and off. d. Firmly insert the Xbox 360 Headset connector in the expansion port under the directional pad (D-pad) and the right stick on the controller. e. If this does not resolve the issue, go to step 2. 2. Test the headset. To do this, record and then listen to a new voice message. To record and then listen to a new voice message, follow these steps:a. Press the Xbox Guide button on the Xbox 360 Controller. b. Select Messages, and then press the A button. c. Select Create New, and then press the A button. d. Select Message, and then press the A button. e. Select a gamertag, and then press the A button. f. Select Add Voice, and then press the A button. g. Put on the Xbox 360 Headset. h. Select Record Message, and then press the A button to start recording a message. i. Speak clearly into the microphone and record your voice for 5 to 15 seconds. j. Press the A button to stop recording. k. Select Play Message, and then press the A button. l. Listen to your recording. ? If you can hear the recorded message, your headset is operating correctly. If the headset still does not function correctly when you use the headset on Xbox Live, you may have to configure Family Settings. Go to step 3. ? If you cannot hear the recorded message, your microphone may be muted, or the earpiece volume may set too low. Verify that the controls are adjusted correctly. 3. Configure Family Settings. Note If you set up a profile for a child on the console, Family Settings lets the owner of the parent profile control who can communicate with the child profile on Xbox Live. In Family Settings, you can enable communication in the child's profile. The default setting for gamers who are under 17 is Friends Only. To configure Family Settings, follow these steps:a. In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button. b. Select Family Settings, and then press the A button. c. Select Xbox Live Controls, and then press the A button. d. Select the child?s profile, and then enter the password of the parent?s profile that is associated with the child's profile. e. Select Privacy and Friends, and then press the A button. f. Select Communications, and then press the A button. g. Select one of the following options: ? Everyone This setting lets you communicate with anyone on Xbox Live. ? Friends Only This setting lets you communicate with people who are on your friends list only. ? Blocked This setting blocks all communication with the headset. Note With this setting, you can still receive new friend requests. h. After you select the option that you want, press the B button until you return to the System section.
