    Connect the Ear Force XC1 Xbox 360 communicator headset to your Xbox 360 video game controller by plugging the male end of the headset cord into input at the bottom or top, depending on the type of controller. Adjust the chat volume by sliding the volume knob on the headset's cord, or mute your mic using the "On/Off" switch.

  2. 2

    Connect the Ear Force X11 Xbox 360 chat and amplified stereo game sound headset with your Xbox 360 controller with the included cable. Plug one end of the cable into your controller and the other into the port on the headset's amplifier. Connect the USB input on your headset to a USB port on your Xbox 360 console. Use the included stereo audio splitter cable to piggyback your headset with the RCA stereo audio plugs, red and white, to switch between speaker or headset sound.

To use the X31's stereo sound capabilities, plug the included stereo audio splitter cable into the port on the transmitter, and then piggyback the RCA stereo audio plugs running from your Xbox 360 to your television. Your headset should have a signal between it and your transmitter when the green light on your transmitter is solid.
