PC freezes/reboots when plugging in headset

I'm not really sure how to even go about troubleshooting this, so I thought I'd see what everyone thought.
Long story short, sometimes when I plug in my headset (more than half the time I'd say), my computer either freezes and I have to shut it down, or reboots right away. Needless to say it doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
The headset is a turtle beach earforce X11 in case that matters. This does not happen when I plug anything else into this usb port, and I have not tried plugging the headset into one of the other ports on the front of the machine. Once the headset it in, either after said reboot or if nothing happens, it works just fine.
Should I start with trying a different port? Or is there a better place to start to figure this thing out?
Edit: now that I think of it, this did not always happen either. I'd say this is a more recent issue within the last couple weeks.
