X32 - Screeching Noise In Headset


  • Screeching noise in the headset.


  • Old or low-quality rechargeable batteries can cause a high-pitched screeching sound when the batteries start running low.


  • Install a set of brand-new alkaline (non-rechargeable) batteries.
  • Use a new set of quality rechargeable batteries instead. We recommend using Eneloop, Duracell, or Energizer rechargeable batteries.

However, if the screeching noise persists after you install fresh alkaline batteries:

  • Disconnect the Talkback Cable from your headset and Xbox 360 controller to see if the noise stops. If it does, then the talkback cable will need to be replaced.
  • Try using a different Xbox 360 controller.
