Sound seems to cut out, a lot.
It seems to occur whenever loud explosions happen, so I thought maybe it had something to do with the sound clipping. But I'm not sure where I'd change this? The transmitter is connected directly to the Xbox through an optical connection and I don't have the volume on the headphones up that high either. I'm also sitting only about 5 feet away from the wireless transmitter as well, and have an unobstructed view.
Any ideas on how I would prevent or significantly decrease the amount of time sound drops out?
I'll have to do some more testing.
Anyway, will do.
What is the average life span for batteries in these headphones? I think I saw a spec that said somewhere around 20 hours or so?
I moved the transmitter further away from my entertainment center (and where the router is located), and also replaced the batteries. After playing a few matches, I didn't have a single dropout! It was a world of difference!
I heard that a great way to cut down on or eliminate RF interference would be an aluminum can. Like cutting open a can and using it to shield the side that faces the router. Is it possible that the signals sent off from my laptop and other wireless devices operating in the wireless B and G spectrum are being recieved by the headset?
Also, is there any channel that I could change my router to broadcast on that would cut down or eliminate the interference?
For people that are getting interference, I recommend setting your routers to channel 14. If your wireless devices support it, then they should automatically switch to that channel and start broadcasting/receiving it.
I am glad that you guys have come to find that keeping the headphones base to close to a wireless router cause all sorts of issues.
I also own a pair of these and I have also found that a lot of dropouts etc etc are down to the chat cable if used with the Xbox 360. As MS decided to go with a 2.5mm jack in stead of 3.5mm you don't get an exact fit.
I found a way to help. Connect the straight connection into the controller then connect the L shaped connection to the headset. This helps limit the movement of the cables connection limiting the sound issues you get.
At times I still get static,poping etc but only when I move the cable by accident whilst moving on my chair etc etc.
These are awesome they really are. I am glad that I wait my missus bought these for my Xmas and gave me them early :)
Hope you get the best out of them in the end.
