    Hi guys

    Just throwing this out to everyone

    Is anyone having problem with their day one edition headset?

    My mate is and it's impossible to get a new headset in our nearest Game and other shops (he's not paying £50 in Argos) even though they don't have any either

    Makes me think if there sold out everywhere there may be a slight issue with some?

    Yes I noticed that also

    Argos selling it for £49.99 and everywhere else is around £20-25

    And you wonder why some shops go into liquidation

    This just a rumour though?

    I also hate how they used to have the '30 day return excluded' was only for earrings, earphones etc for the obvious, but they've totally jumped on that band wagon and now for the majority of items in the book has that symbol (a cross)

    my local argos is always dead and its a pretty big store, and was only relatively busy on the run up to xmas, i still remember being a kid in the 80's and 90's and them being busier than they are now, or maybe its just the town centre store thats dead and the other store across town is ok, but im pretty certain they are not doing as well as people think they are

    My local argos are both really busy and their shares are rocketing this year so I think they are doing well

    why don't you just get a replacement free? I registered at xbox for my console and went to replace. An accessory. Choose the headset. And they will send you one free. No delivery and no need to send old one back either.

    What's his problem exactly ?(with the headset), I thought I had a problem with mine and it turned out to be the controller.

    When I plugged the headset into the controller, the controller would turn off ??, it worked as it should for about 15mins or so and then developed this fault.
    Has he tried a different controller to establish which is at fault ?

    I appreciate not much help because if it's the controller, as it's Day One it'll have to be replaced by MS and that could take up to 3 weeks apparently.

    It was his headset I think

    All we could hear was loud like hissing, it was like the noise of you rubbed your jumper over the mic

    We couldn't hear him at all at points

    If its the defo headset, then MS will send you one FOC apparently if you phone their CS or as mentioned above register the console online.

    From the above link, assuming you are signed in..........

    Click "replace accessory"
    Click "Xbox 1"
    Click "Headset"
    Click "next"

    This should bring up your details, email addy, postal address, telephone number.
    Check all these details are correct.#

    Click "next"
    Check the address validation information
    Click "next"

    That should be it :thumbsup:

    Ah yeh, just spotted that now, strange, mine said I didn't have to send mine back.
    Wondering if it's because I registered mine on release date perhaps ?

    guessing they aren't keen on the headset mods going round being the reason for it
