So I just bought this headset with the main purpose of being able to use them with my Xbox 360 as well as my PC. They also happen to be 5.1/7.1 Channel Dolby Surround Sound. I have used them for a few days now and can't say anything good about them other than the fact they are surround sound, which is neat. However I do have a question. Why is that I start getting a loud static noise on the background when I plug them into a USB port, ANY USB port (these are USB powered). If anything shouldn't it do this when you plug in your green output jack into your PC? Or do I just have a bad sound card (which it wouldn't make sense if I'm just plugging them into USB)? OR does the headset just suck?

My zalman do that from time to time also. My cheap logitech don't
This happens even at lower volumes, but it only does it for a min, then goes away.
Does it make a difference if you wiggle the cords?
Could this be related to electromagnetic interference from the power into your house?
meaning enough fluxuation/noise in the ac to cause noise, even if you don't see any flicker from the lights in your house. Some people who complain about there monitor or other electronics buzzing may have this problem.

if you do that..... then would you have to go back into it again and unmute it in order for you to use the boon mic like say in team speak during the game?
No, the mic will still work. I had to fix this for my son & he confirmed that it still works. He uses it for TF2 & L4D2. It is only muted in playback volume control, not voice recording. With my X11's, you can hear yourself in the headset when you talk into the mic.
It might be a very simple solution. I had the same trouble and found out that it's just because i had my controller plugged into my console. If have a wireless controller for your 360 and you plug it into your xbox to charge it. Then, unplug it from the xbox and that will do away with the buzzing. You just have to play the games wireless controller. If you don't have a wireless control for your console then you might want to invest in one. Just charge your controller the night before so your ready to go the next day. If you have to charge it during game play you just have to put up with it until its done. Hope this helps.
