Xbox One party chat static.
« on: 07:20 PM - 08/07/17 »
I just recently purchased a xim4 and whenever I plug my turtlebeach headset into my controller it has a static sound in party chat. Anyone know how to fix it? I have updated it to its latest firmware.

hey,

here are the troubleshooting steps from turtlebeach on how to solve it :)

also incase your keyboard or mouse has LEDs try to turn them off, those can also cause static buzzes

Well my mic work perfect. when the xim4 is plugged in the controller, then it persists to make the low buzzing noise.  my mic is working fine, just think whenever i plug the xim4 it makes my mic bad.

yes thats because the headset might have a weak isolation, once the xim comes into play the electricity level of the controller changes slightly which can cause the buzz
a groundloop isolator will fix that (see turtle beach support link), or if possible use your warranty and get a new one with better build quality
