The Xbox 360 wireless headset beeps to alert the user in a few different situations. There are two situations that will cause the headset to beep continuously. The first situation is to indicate the microphone is muted. The mute function is supposed to be used only temporarily, not continuously during a game. The other situation is to indicate the battery of the wireless headset is about to die. Resolving both of these issues will cause the headset to stop beeping.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Press the “Xbox” button on the Xbox 360 controller. This is the grey button with a green “X” in the centre of the controller. The Xbox Guide menu will appear.

  2. 2

    Select “Personal Settings” from the Xbox Guide menu. A submenu will open.

  3. 3

    Select “Voice” from the personal settings submenu will appear. The settings of your Xbox 360 wireless headset will appear on the screen. This screen will show whether the headset is currently muted.

  4. 4

    Press the "Power" button on the wireless headset if it is currently muted. The headset will beep twice to indicate the mute function has been turned off. This will cause the headset to stop beeping. Do not hold down the power button. This will turn off the headset instead.

  1. 1

    Plug the USB charging cable into the port in the back of the Xbox 360 wireless headset. This is the same cable that came with the wireless headset.

  2. 2

    Plug the other end of the cable into one of the USB ports on the Xbox 360 console. All four lights on the headset will begin to flash. Only one of the four lights will be lit at any given time. This indicates the headset is currently charging.

  3. 3

    Wait until all four lights on the headset are flashing in unison. This indicates the wireless headset is fully charged. This will cause the battery indicator beep to stop.

Tips and warnings

  • The Xbox 360 wireless headset is not required to hear other players during a game. It is better to not use the headset at all instead of leaving the headset on mute for the entire game.
  • The mute indicator beep indicates only the wireless headset’s own mute function is currently on. The headset will not beep if the headset is muted by a game setting.
