I've been through 4 different official Xbox Live wired gamer headsets. And on all 4 of them I could not get the microphone to work. I have tried plugging them in to my Xbox Live chatpad, directly in to my Xbox wireless controller, nada. Nothing works.
Does anybody have any tips on what I might be doing wrong? Surely I can't be THAT unlucky to have 4 different headsets not work? :)
All accessories I use (chat pad, controllers etc) are official Microsoft Xbox products incidentally. :)
An incidental question - since I last tried I now have a Kinect, which has a microphone which works. Can you use Kinect and headsets together? My microphone is turned off on the Kinect.
