I dont know what happened but halo 3 everyone had headsets and now no one uses headsets or communicates WHY???
People don't know how to mute annoying people.

And give up on headsets entirely?

I use mine but, nobody talks....
Because I got sick of terrible staticy music over the mic, racist bigots, 8 year olds playing M games, sexist or homophobic slanderers, terrible behavior and people just scream over the mic.

And the one time I forgot to start a party to avoid that, it became clear Xbox live hadnt changed. So I'm gonna keep my mic off unless I'm in a party.
Yeah, personally I would love to communicate with the people I'm gaming with but you always seem to have somebody being a jerk, or they have their TV up way too loud or they're carrying on conversations with people they're with. Often the mic becomes a bad experience. If I'm in a party with friends that's a different story.

I think that's everything.
Everyone thinks everyone else is a little kid so no one bothers

You forgot non-English speakers.
Well little 8 year old Billy always has his mic on begging everyone get into his warthog.

Mark has his 6 month old child crying in the background while he plays.

I don't think mute works for me. I've tried muting people at times but they still keep talking.

*edit btw, those 2 examples I seriously came across recently

The baby crying one is spot on, I get this all the time.
Eh, your more likely to get some antagonizing jerk than someone cool in game chat. Normally I have my mic on, in party chat.
Mine broke... since hardly any one uses them any ways I haven't been motivated to get another one.
If you could mute someone and have that person stay muted until.

You specifically un mute them.

I am pretty sure once you mute a player they stay muted

only ever headset when in a party with friends/company members
I use my headset but I dont use it outside of a Xbox party. Mostly because if I were to talk strategy I feel like nobody else could listen or talk back. So a I agree but I am also part of the problem I guess.

I don't have a headset for Xbox one but I do have one for the 360, and even then I'm mic shy so I wouldn't talk unless my friends are in the chat
50% of people who use mics would do your head in.
(Sorry if this sounded rude).
