OT: controller problem.

Anybody else found the USB on the bottom goes out of shape or if you disconnect and reconnect something a couple of times it never goes back in again and they're unaligned?

2 controllers now where I can't plug in the chat pad or a headset adapter.

    the ports are very bad design.

    i use a headset with intergrated chat now. to bypass this problem.

    There's only one way up to put in chat pads and adapters. On one of them the USB has sunk into the controller, I've never overly forced it in or chucked them about.

    Gonna need a new pad before Gears 4, need that Turtle Beach on!

    Do those just have AUX in on the bottom of the pad and the volume mixer on the headset?

    I'll look into that. I'm assuming those are Dolby 5:1 or 7:1 given they're optical in and powered.

    Nearly bought Astro A50s earlier this year but I wasn't sold on them for the price.

    **** it I'll get a pair. I'm getting my son an Xbox slim for his birthday in 6 weeks, so he can have the other headset and spare pads for his mates coming round.
