For some reason, my Xbox 360 wireless headset keeps disconnecting and reconnecting itself at very random moments. My headsets battery is full and I am in a direct visual to my Xbox within a short distance away. I have even bought a second wireless headset to test out and it still has the same issue.

I know that other people have had this issue because I have seen it on different forums (Example) but I was wondering if anyone has maybe found a solution for it yet?

I am assuming you are using a wireless Controller as well. I have had so many issues with wireless controllers and headsets that I now use a wired controller and a wired headset. However my wife uses a Turtle Beach headset and a wireless controller and has never had an issue. They are a little expensive but Turtle Beach headsets are really good.

So you don't have this problem when you use a wired controller while still using the wireless headset? –  TrickyM66 Aug 13 '10 at 17:21
Correct, but i still use a wired headset myself just because I got tired of wasting batteries or charging them all the time. I still have the original wired headset that came with my XBox and it works great with a wired controller. I'm not sure what the exact issue is but it is definitely the wireless controller that has the issue. –  Jack Aug 13 '10 at 17:31
You may have a device in your home that operates on a similar frequency. Cordless phones, bluetooth devices, garage door openers, and even cheap microwaves can all interfere with wireless headsets/controllers. –  Nick Sep 19 '12 at 6:08
