Xbox 360 How to connect a wireless Microphone to your console


Aug 26, 2012
You can use the Xbox 360 Wireless Microphone with the Xbox video game and entertainment system. Before connecting the Microphone to a console, you have to insert the batteries. The microphone supports only AA (LR6) alkaline or fully charged Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries.

Note: The microphone doesn’t include a charging system. So, you must charge the batteries in an appropriate charging device.

Now you can create a wireless connection between the microphone and your console. :)

Connect the microphone to the console

It is possible to connect up to four Xbox Wireless Microphones at one time, depending on your configuration and game support. Each microphone will be assigned to one of the four lights surrounding the power button of the console. But the quadrant will only light up if a controller is connected to the console.

Note: If four microphones are connected to the console, two of them can be used to sing. The other two microphones can be used as percussion instruments.

To connect a microphone to the console, follow the steps bellow:

  • First, you need to turn on your console.
  • Now press and hold the power button on the microphone until the lights start flashing. It’ll take about three seconds.
  • You need to press and hold the power button on the microphone again until the light start flashing quickly. It’ll also take about three seconds.
  • When the microphone’s lights stop flashing and the lights surrounding the power button on the console spin and flash one time, the microphone is connected.
  • If you want to connect more microphones follow the steps above.

If you want to turn off your microphone, you’ll have to press and then release the power button. If the microphone is idle for 15 minutes, it’ll go to sleeping mode till you start to use it again.


  • You cannot connect a microphone to multiple consoles at a time. But you can connect the microphone to a new console any time disconnecting it from the previous one.
  • You can use a microphone within 33 feet (10 meters) of the console. However, other radio frequency-emitting devices or objects between the microphone and the console may reduce this range.
  • If the microphone is out of wireless range, the lights will flash green on time every second.
