The XBOX 360 Halo 4 Limited Edition Console has a cheesy action-game sound every time you startup/shutdown the console.

Is there any way to disable this? I'd be willing to open this thing up and rip out its internal speaker if necessary.


There is not a way to disable it, per this thread and comments on this YouTube video. However, there is a fairly easy workaround:

There are only two sources of the sounds, driven by hardware. The sounds is played when you physically touch the system.

For Power On: Use the XBox button on your controller.

For Disc eject, close: Just navigate to Open/Close Tray via the 360 dashboard.

For Power Off: Navigate to Setting -> Turn Off.

If rewiring is more your thing, there is a tutorial on adding a new sound board to your box here.

I think you'd be into hacking the console and flashing the BIOS.

  • Does this count as modding the console? Could this get the user banned? – deutschZuid Feb 24 '13 at 8:08
  • You would have to assume yes. – Alan B Feb 25 '13 at 8:57
