XO4 Headset makes buzzing noise when using XB1 wired Controller

Hi every 1, i prefer to play wired on my XB1, however whenever i record voice clips or join partys, Me or my friends hear a constant buzzing coming from my XO4 headset. Is there any solution to solve this without needing to use batteries and go wireless. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello Sonic Emeralds,

A buzzing coming from the mic could be an indication of a ground loop within your electrical system. This is most commonly associated with older houses that do not have a ground for the outlet (2 prong outlet in the US). 

I've personally experienced this problem and my workaround to test to see if this is the issue is to plug the Xbox One controller USB cord into another outlet, (such as a USB wall charger), separate from your Xbox One. Of course, it is no longer "wired" to the Xbox One but this is just for troubleshooting.

You could also test another mic to see if it reacts the same way.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
