As the gaining buzz about the 360-Wireless-Headsets-not-working-properly continues, I was able to capture some video of the connectivity problems I have been frequently having. Maybe this video can help Microsoft pinpoint the problem and make me feel better about spending 60 bucks for it. This has happend to me on a total of 4 distinct occasions. The video is self explanatory.

Thanks for posting. That is really interesting, the console is having trouble distinguishing between the two device types. That is actually the first i have heard about this problem, up till now i have only heard of audio quality problems from the mic and ear piece being so close.

This is consistent with a friend for verification of the problem it solved this same problem for both of us. The headset seems to have trouble binding with the same controller we bought packaged with our systems. He switched controllers as did I and it solved this particular problem. A inconvience yes but one that is solvable without microsoft intervention.

Why does the headset connect via a controller port? There should be a wireless adapter/dongle that plugs in just like the wired headset. I have to say, this is simply a stupid design.

It's supposed to work as a separate level. You have your four controllers that match the ring of lights and then there is a second level of four spots for the head sets that are only visible on the actual unit, not the console. The console appears to get the levels mixed up.

My headset is fine. Works fantastic and bought it the day it came out.
DUDE ... return it for another one !!!

BTW, the WIRELESS headset does NOT PLUG INTO THE CONTROLLER at all. The only thing it PLUGS into is the charger.
