Unhappy *sigh* No Sound

The other day we went out and bought a 360 and so far it has worked fine. However when we tried to plug in and use the headset that came with it, nothing happened. The sound kept coming out of the speakers and not the headphones. Also, when we do have the sound set to "speakers" we still can't hear the people talking (The players, not the characters and sound effects).
Has anyone had this problem before? Or is it just an option that we didn't turn on and not a problem at all? (Note we did go through all the options in the display and personal settings.)

When we get home we're going to call CS but we figured that someone here might have had the same problem and it was worth a shot.

Thanks

I was going to suggest that you may either need to raise the input volume on the headset or sign out of private chat into the actuall game channel.

Doh! That @#$!@ family setting just ruins everything!

On a side not, looks like there's a patch in the works for some of the multi-player bugs that have been reported.

Yeah, they don't mention anything and then make you go look for it when you do notice something.

Although now that we think about it, it was more fun when we couldn't hear the people screaming "n00B GTFO %$^% %^%$^ &^$% You!"
