Usually thats one of two probelms.

The Privacy Settings, Make Sure Everything is Enabled.
OR
the Little thign that goes into your controller. Often the gray thing that plugs into the bottom of your contrller gets a short circuit or a loose wire.

If you're sure you've checked both, all I can think of is the contrller being problematic. Try using a different controller.

Yea that's the way mine is, I have to wiggle the cord a tad to get it back. I got a more comfortable headset but it don't have a switch to mute/unmute or volume. I don't know what's the deal with that.

My original Xbox 360 headset broke back in November. Thankfully the Vision camera included a headset.

I have had the same problem a couple times now. The ear piece works but not the mouth piece. Usually when this happens it is the headset, not the controller. Sometimes you can get it to work again by wiggling the wire near the base.

Not sure why it happens, but I have replaced 3 headsets now. I even had one die on me while talking to someone :mad: .
