  1. Xbox Series X controller freeze when the headset is plugged in


    There seems to be an issue when plugging the headset into the controller. controller freezes during gameplay. But when unplugging the headset, the controller recover functionality. This never happened with the Xbox one x, it only happened to Xbox series X. The controller also is up to date and nothing wrong with it.

    Connecting headset

    The headset should work on an Xbox One controller and Xbox Series S/X controllers.

    Turn off the controller by holding the Xbox button on the controller until the controller turns off and unplug the headset.

    On your console press and hold the Xbox console button until the console turns off, remove the power cord from the console, and wait 1 minute.

    Plug the power cord into your console again, turn on the console with your controller, and when you see your console's dashboard connect the headset to the controller and see if that solves the problem.

    Xbox Series X controller freezes on PC

    I think it's an issue with the new controllers for some reason. My Series X controller will freeze once a week or so (always when I'm in the middle of a race unsurprisingly!!)....I'll be driving and my car will suddenly just veer off the road and then be constantly accelerating. Only resets when I remove the battery from it. This is on the Series X so may not be the same of course.

    Having said that, it has only happened with the Plug and Play Battery...never happened with normal rechargeables.

    Trying to get digital assistant to work but screen shows mic is turned off do I need a headset or is there one built in

    Unfortunately, there is no built-in mic on the Xbox Series X and no bluetooth support if you're thinking to go that route.



    You will need to attach a headset with a mic to the Xbox Series X controller. The Xbox Series X controller uses a standard 2.5mm audio connection for Xbox Live, you can use any standard headset. (It does not have to be something fancy or expensive.)



    I hope this helps. Merry Christmas to all!

    [XBOX ONE] Headset adapter constantly freezes controller and doesn't recognize headsets

    Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately the firmware on my controller is updated. As I mentioned this didn't even start happening until after that I updated the controller.

    The issue still happens every time I plug in the headset adapter. I'm still narrowing down the exact cause, but it seems if I join a party or start a game prior to attaching the adapter the controller will freeze when I do attach it and then the system has
    to be hard restarted for me to be able to use the controller again. Sometimes it will freeze if I unplug the headset from the adapter and plug it back in. This happens with multiple headsets (Astro A40s and an Xbox 360 headset).
