I had no problem hooking up my DX mic to the bottom of my 360 controller.  however, i did connect it with an adapter that was specially made for the xbox.  I don't have it in front of me, but I believe that adapter plugged into the 2.5 mm jack on the bottom of the controller and separated the mic and headset channel.  Of course, I plugged my mic into the mic port and this is probably where you are running into problems.  It is pictured in the link below:

What sort of adapter are you using?

I have the same adapter as kellte, in addition to the one that is part of the Recon3D USB kit. I have no problem with using my lapel mics thought that. Most likely, you either have a fault in your adapter or your controller's port itself. Do you have any other mics to test out? I have a chat headset made for the Xbox, and there's a fault with it where if the 2.5mm plug isn't completely still and plugged in at just the right position, my mic input breaks up just like you are describing.
I think most likely you have a bad adapter.

Well if someone doesn't snag that mixamp before me, I'm gonna buy it in the next couple of weeks. And then all I'll have to do is get the AD700's biggrin.gif

Well I finally got to try out the HD800 in the B&H superstore. Obviously I wasn't impressed but I was listening to electronic music unamped. I love how it sits on your head and the build quality seems amazing. I will definitely try these with proper equipment sometime in the future (2 years from now)

 

I also put the DT880 and DT770 in my head, my god they felt like clouds, speaking purely about comfort. I don't know what they use (velour?) but I would love for more headphone manufacturers to use it. In fact, I think I may be returning my Annies because the clamping finally got to me. Perhaps it is because I've been having some general discomfort with a molar and I should visit the dentist soon anyway but now I find it very uncomfortable. Now that I cut my hair I also find the thin leather strip uncomfortable.

 

For the time being I'm just going to rock the Sennheiser Momentums that I bought last week until I figure out if what I want to buy for home use. I'm also going to go back to B&H to have some more time with a few of these headphones. If for no other reason just to test how they feel on my head.

You are SUPER fortunate to be able to audition headphones like that. Man, I'd love to take my iPod & E12 into that store... I would also be highly likely to buy camera gear... Oh man, I could spend a mint @ B&H.

Well... you want to measure out where the mixamp is going to be placed, and the toslink and usb should be a length greater than the distance between the mixamp and your xbox. For the chat cable I would recommend at least 3 meters to give enough slack for movement with the controller.

Thanks, yeah I'm thinking it's either the adapter or a faulty controller.  The controller is quite old, so I might try replacing it.

 

And to Kellte, I bought this:

It was mentioned in the reviews somewhere that it works with the 360 controller.

I don't see why that adapter would give you problems, if it is properly functioning.  I've received some DOA items from DX in the past so it isn't outside the realm of possibility for you to have received a defective adapter.  I'd contact them through their support page and they will likely offer to: 1) offer account credit; or 2) replace the item for free.

 

Worst part is the shipping wait.  Good luck.

There's been a new version of the ad700, called the ad700x.it might solve the comfort issues the original had, at least the reviews say so.

I've been searching all over the web for reviews and only found some for the ad900x on this thread

http://www.head-fi.org/t/631998/audio-technica-updates-their-open-headphones-ad-series-ad2000x-ad1000x-ad900x-ad700x-and-ad500x

Please please please someone review these and compare them against the AD700.

post #11668 of 26618
Looks like the only reviews are in that thread. Amazon doesn't even have a review yet. They also cost $199, so... they'd better be an improvement, as the AD700 costs only half as much.
