Headset Disconnects Controller

The title says it all, Whenever I plug in the headset that comes with the system my controller instantly disconnects and won't reconnect until the microphone is unplugged. Hardware issue?

I contacted MS support about this and was told that it is "objects interfering that cannot be seen" and that it wasn't a problem with the hardware. I assume that the rep means that somehow plugging in the headset is causing my house to magically generate the exact wave pattern to cancel out the controller's signal... needless to say, I'll be contacting them again,

When my headset is plugged in when I power on my controller it never comes on.  The controller just blinks. I have to plug in the headset after the power is fully on the headset. Then it works fine.
