    Good adapter, on par with PS4's similar feature

    For full disclosure: my review of this controller adapter is colored by my experience of a similar feature built into the PS4 controller. I have both consoles. I usually prefer Xbox over Playstation, but I believe my assessment of this adapter is unbiased by my preferences. --- This adapter not only lets you use your 3.5mm and 2.5mm (with included cable) jacked headsets, it also serves live stereo audio from your game, movie, or TV to the headset. To me, this is the prime feature. For a headset to work this way, it needs to be a "smartphone" style headset/earphoes. The best way to determine this is to count how many black rings are on your headset plug. Three is a smartphone headset with a mic. (Two is only stereo.) I use a Skullcandy headset with a microphone in-line. Other gaming headsets may or may not work well with this adapter. Surround sound headsets with a secondary 2.5mm cable for chat capability will only be able to take advantage of chat functions. Rely on your normal method for getting game audio. The next best feature of this adapter is the audio mixing capability. Buttons on the adapter allow you to modify the mix between game and chat audio. When adjusting, one side rises until both sides are equally loud, and then the other source starts to decrease. There is also a master volume control that increases or decreases the mixed volume. This is a feature that the PS4 controller fails to provide with such ease, requiring a manual adjustment in the device settings. The negatives are that the sound can drop out if the signal gets obstructed. I sit about 15-20 feet from the Xbox One, and if I obstruct the signal with my body, I can get the signal to become intermittent. However, in normal practice, this is a non-issue for me. It is merely a limitation at the edge of being troublesome. Odds are that most users will not notice this unless they have excessive obstruction. I have not had this issue with PS4, at least as far as I have noticed. Also, the controller requires an "update". There is a firmware on the controller itself and the adapter comes with a sheet that walks through updating the controller. And if you are having trouble getting the instructions to pop up on screen, there is a controller update option in the settings app under system. I had to find this myself. In a few more notes of comparison, the PS4 implementation of this feature is built into the controller, meaning the cost of this feature is increased by the cost of this adapter on the Xbox One. Also, I have not seen any such audio drops on the PS4 controller. Also, the PS4 can automatically mute audio when the controller audio is active. If you want to silence your TV with the Xbox One, you have to do that manually, by saying "Xbox, Mute" or using your remote. I believe the negatives and the positives of both implementations balance each other out and Microsoft's answer to Sony's headset functionality is a worthy answer. While Microsoft provides a more feature rich implementation, the Sony solution is more refined and built in. Aside from comparisons, I have to dock the adapter a star for difficulty upgrading the controller and for the slight audio issue, but it still comes highly recommended if your case is one that would benefit from these features.

    Good, with a few flaws

    I'm a dedicated gamer. I've been playing video games since the days of the NES. Games have come a long way since then, noticeably in sound. Modern games have the capacity to envelope the player in a fully realized world, replete with beautifully done effects, from full music scores to smaller things like the patter of rain on nearby surfaces, the clink of rattling equipment as your character runs, all the way to the footsteps of a sneaking assailant. You get my drift. To be fully immersed in a game, being able to hear all of this is essential. Until this came along, I'd been unable to use my high end gaming headphones for combined sound and chat, a must for fast paced multiplayer games with friends. It was either high end sound, or using the included xbox one chat headset with my tv speakers (which are terrible). Setting it up is as easy as plugging it into the controller, then plugging your desired headset into the adapter. Regular stereo headphones will draw sound right from that jack, and can be plugged directly into the adapter. No fuss. For dedicated headsets using the smaller jack found on the old 360 controller, there's an included small to large adapter. Your controller will need a firmware update, but this takes all of a minute. The adapter is perfectly placed- adjusting chat volume or muting the mic requires you move your thumb no more than a millimeter off the right stick. It's well made, and simple, even illuminating when the mic is muted. With most headphones, you can even adjust the game/chat volume balance. Notice I said "most." Some higher end headsets, including the turtle beach xp42's I bought, include a chatback function which allows the user to hear themselves speak alongside the game audio (useful for when you've got the volume cranked up). This unfortunately interferes with the game/chat balance adjustment. Adjusting the game/chat volume will produce a noticeable echo on these headsets. The more you up the game volume, the more noticeable the echo becomes. This can be fixed by pushing the chat volume to maximum, but it's an annoying glitch all the same. Bottom line: if you've got a previous generation (xbox 360) or other stereo headphones you want to use with the Xbox one, this is what you've been waiting for. If your headset has chatback, it will work with the fix detailed above. If you've yet to buy any dedicated gaming headset, I'd recommend going with the xbox one dedicated headphones. As an addendum, I've heard they're working on a patch to fix this.

    Use any pair of headphones for chat and audio

    Even with the negative this is a product that gamer's been in need of since the Nintendo days! The adapter connects to the bottom of the Xbox controller, then you can use any pair of ear buds, mobile speaker, Iphone headset, Beats by Dre, or Bose products for TV/Game audio and Live chat. This is great for me as I am a stay at home dad. When the baby goes down for a nap the 5.1 gets muted and the headphones go on. Also great is the fact that any Bluetooth speaker with a 3.5 connection can become a small audio source. My wife works nights, I can keep from waking here up by using a small speaker, when I want to watch morning TV. If you have elderly family members this is the easiest/cheapest (if you already own a Xbox One) way to hook up wireless headphones. With that said its only stereo sound and a bug occurs once out of every 20 (estimated) uses, where the controller loses connection. This is VERY lame while playing online. However, MS has been on top of monthly updates to fix stupid things like this on the Xbox System (Yes, the controllers get firmware updates). SO for the price and flexibility of this 24.95 product, the bug doesn't effect my rating.

    It works as expected

    This adapter is needed if you want to use your Xbox 360 headset with the new Xbox One in order to chat with friends online. If you never chat then this is not needed. For those who will be using this adapter with a wireless headset with receiver such as the Turtle Beach X41/X42, XP510/Earforce Tango etc. Make sure to adjust the 'game' sound on the adapter to off. You can do this by turning the 'chat' sound all the way up until you hear the chime/beep. This will avoid you from hearing feedback/distortion as your game sounds will come from your receiver. If you own a Turtle Beach headset, set it up the same way you did with your Xbox 360. You can either connect it to your TV or the Xbox One, it's your choice. Set the chat on the cable cord to on and full volume. From now on you will control the volume with the adapter. Turn the game volume on the adapter off as explained above. You will need to follow the Xbox One or Turtle Beach guides (check their websites) to set up the Xbox One sound setting. If you don't do this correctly you will not hear any sound. One last tip - the adapter cable that ships with the product is quite thin and there have been reports that it stops working after a few months of use. Ienza sells a replacement cable on Amazon that is thick and highly durable. I picked up a pair of replacement cables for about $5 ea. shipped.

    Multiple issues

    I just picked up my adapter the other day. Since then I did the controller update and started using them. I was excited to be able to use my x41s. The problems started right away. First off my controller disconnected twice in game the first night. (Microsoft is aware that it's caused by the headset or update.# Second my x41s are 2.5mm so I have to use the 3.5mm adapter. The cord sticks straight down an inch lower than the adapter/controller so when I hold my controller the way I normally do the cable is sticking me in the chest and pinching the cord. It won't last long doing that and is uncomfortable so I had to go buy an adapter with 90 degree end so it wasn't completely uncomfortable and wouldn't break. That's another $8 to add on to the price to use a headset I already paid $180 for. My friends say that they sound terrible when talking to them and sometimes make loud noises that hurt their ears when I talk. #Again Microsoft knows about the issue). Overall this was a terrible product that seems rushed out to appease microsoft's customers that were angry that they made a change and just thought they would buy new headsets. It was not well thought out and the negatives far outweigh the positives. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend at all except that Microsoft didn't give us a choice if we want to use our expensive headsets unless you buy another expensive headset that won't work with any other device besides the xbox one.

    Update is frustrating for this!

    I bought this to use with my headphones and headset I already own. It works fine for that purpose. It can be hit or miss with microphone detection though. I have found that often I have to open the party app and start a party to get the mic working when it should just work right when I plug it in. Also, it adds bulk and can be annoying if you have a larger headphone jack if you are playing laying down, so it jabs you in your belly or chest etc. The buttons are un-intuitive as well. You can't adjust just the volume of the game or chat, they are adjusted in relationship to each other, which can become annoying. This product would be 4 stars if those were the only problems. The main reason for the 3 stars is the update process. Now, I got this adapter, and in anticipation of it updated my controllers the night before. What I didn't know is that I should have waited until I had the adapter plugged into the controllers with a headset plugged in to do it. Now, every time I plug in a headset, my XBOX asks for a controller update. When I try to do it, it stalls and won't complete. If I take the adapter out and try it, it says my controller is already updated. You can get around this by cancelling the update prompt, but it is annoying to do that every time I plug in my headset. I also am not sure if I have the update that fixes some of the audio problems with this adapter as I do hear some pops and noises that I think were supposed to be addressed with an update. This is all very frustrating to me, and there is very little to be found on google for help. Unfortunately, this is the only option to use headphones with the XBOX One, unless you connect through optical or home theater. In summary, if you get this, don't update your controllers until you have it plugged in WITH headphones plugged in as well.

    More Useful than advertised

    I picked this up today because I have 2 turtle beach headsets that have been sitting in a box due to their incompatibility with the x1. Once I updated my controllers to be able to use the adapter, it was a cinch to get my turtle beach working with the x1. Now what I didn't know was that if I took my Razer Electra headphones with the in-line microphone and hooked them up to the adaptor, not only do I get game audio, but it also recognizes the mic on it , allowing me to chat with it. This is awesome because I less cumbersome to use my razer headphone than my turtle beaches. The adaptor also has buttons that allow you to mix between the game audio and the chat audio, which is a feature that I liked from the turtle beach headsets. The only issue I see is that the xbox could use an equalizer for the adaptor. While the audio is good, it is kind of bland. Granted this could be fixed in a later update on the x1, but for the time being, this issue isn't something that should keep you from purchasing it.

    Some Pros and some Cons

    Overall I like the headset adapter a lot and it really adds a lot of functionality to certain types of wired headsets that you wouldn't otherwise have. I purchased this headset several months ago. Below I've mentioned some quick Pros and Cons and added a video review too. PROS: + Allows the use of a stereo headset for both game sound and voice chat. + Nice Button Layout (Mute but especially easy to press) + Essentially turns a wired headset into a wireless headset + Game sound mute functionality build into the adapter (just double press game sound button) + Seems to work great with games, Blu Rays, YouTube app, video on Xbox one in general CONS: - Worthless unless used with the Xbox One - Crackly Sound at times while gaming (maybe a wireless issue?)(controller updates were supposed to address this) - Sometimes hard to balance voice chat and game sound for certain games like Titanfall - A bit pricey for an adapter. I understand you get a lot of functionality out of this thing but the fact that this was an after thought and not something included with the console boggles my mind. Since its $25 it rubs me wrong since Microsoft seems to have blatantly made the decision to switch to a non-stand plug and essentially render all previous aftermarket headsets useless for the Xbox One. I mean come on now, some people have invested hundreds if not thousands of dollars into their nice headsets. Check out this YouTube Video Review: http://youtu.be/AHAo3ncXJQk

    I was hoping to be able to use this right out of the box but I was wrong. There are just a few steps to get this thing working (other than the issues explained later). Plug it into the controller and plug the controller into the Xbox Either the system will recognize the added adapter or you will have to go to settings and update the controller there It takes all of about 5 minutes and it should be working It did work in my case but when I started talking to other people, they said I sounded horrible. Sometimes the Astro headset sounded like a robot on the Xbox 360 but they said this was different. After reading a little more into it, Microsoft admits it has an issue with the adapter with all headsets, not just Astro. They are working on an update to fix this. Also reading into Astro's website, the may have a firmware update for their 2013 mixers that I might look into but it shouldn't be a 3rd parties responsibility to fix Microsoft's issue. Thought this would be an easy thing to test before shipping out. The game/chat buttons seem to only work if you do not use the conversion cable (to use legacy headsets). To adjust the volume of game/chat, you have to use the headset itself. So far, it's been a waste of 25 bucks until Microsoft fixes the issue. I would wait until Microsoft fixes this issue before picking one of these up, if you can find one anyway. In the meantime, back to talking through the Kinect.

    It works in most cases

    I bought this adapter to use my XBOX360 Turtle Beach PX5s with the XBOXOne. The setup works but there are glitches. First unlike the 360 remote the One remote outputs both chat and game sounds through the remote and therefore remote port. This is in reality a huge difference. So if you have your TV hooked to the PX5 base via Toslink you get a reverb effect from the headphones because it is being fed two slightly separate game sound channels - one from the TV and one from the One remote itself. My advice - disconnect the Toslink to the base - it clears the sound back up. This is however annoying because I have to reconnect the Toslink to use the PX5s to listen to any other source connected to the TV(cable, XBOX360, DVD, Etc.) Secondly there also now layers of volume controls in play. The rotary dial in the PX5 cable becomes a master volume control in addition to the rotary dial on the headphone body itself. You also have a master volume and volume variance control between game and chat on the adapter itself. So it works and allows an original XboxOne controller to work with a legacy headset but prepare yourself for some annoyance depending on use and some tweeking to get it right.

    Xbox Stereo Adapter is an excellent add on...

    Puts audio controls at your fingertips on the controller so you do not have to go through a bunch of menus - allowing you to mute on a chat channel without using menus. These are the "missing buttons" on a modern fully functional controller are are a big in-game time and hassle saver. Also allows older controllers to be easily used with 3.5 MM headset and mic combos. Be sure your headset has a mic and the right plug by examining the 3.5 mm plug - it needs to have 4 metal bands to work (see pick below) with a headset that has a mic and stereo headset. Xbox or other "one" ear headsets work fine. Also be sure you pick the right model of this adapter so it fits on your controller. Finally note apple headsets are a problem on Xbox controllers due to apple reversing the "ground" connection. Xbox follows normal conventions (like Android headsets do) apple did not follow normal conventions. It took us a long time to figure that out.

    So I bought this headset adapter because it is required to chat on X1 unless you use the headset they provide with the system. I'm giving this 5 stars even though it has its short comings just because of one enormous positive for me. First the good: it works. That's honestly all I can say about that. The not as good but still manageable: The adapter makes the controller slightly closer to you which doesn't seem like an issue but with a standard straight headset plugged in Dependig upon how you sit/lay to play your games it may end up resting on your body. This isn't a comfort issue but just potentially a long-term durability concern for the headset wire. The controls generally work although sometimes pushing the controller/person button actually controls the volume instead of needing to use the volume controls. Eh, I don't change them often so this isn't a concern. The extra great bonus: if you were like me and bought wired 360 headphones (Turtle Beaches), since this adapter has all of the volume controls on it, I no longer need to use the wires for my headset. Just plug the one wire you used to plug from the headset into your control box straight into the adapter and bam! Works perfect with no wires to the X1. That alone makes some of the short comings totally minor in my opinion since the "wireless" bonus is so great. Who are we kidding, you need it anyway so just buy it.

    Works for my Turtle Beach X12

    I definitely recommend this product to anybody who doesn't want to pay a lot of money to buy a headset specifically made for the XB1. With that said, I can only speak to my Turtle Beach X12 headset. It was extremely easy to install. There are very clear and concise instructions that come with the adapter. I'm not sure if I actually needed to, but I connected the headset to the TV with the red and white cables like I did with the 360. The only difference is I didn't connect the pinkish and green cables to anything (before I had the green cable connected to the headset plug on the TV, but that's no longer needed). The update took only a couple minutes and then I was able to get both game and chat sound on the headset. The game sound is still very clear. I haven't had a chance to check the mic yet for chat, but I think Microsoft has made updates to make it work better. Before there were a lot of complaints of having to move the mic far away from the face and it being overly loud as well as hearing static. With that said, I'm not overly thrilled with having to pay another $25, but I thought the alternative was much better than forking up 3-4x as much on a new quality headset. Having a headset is a necessity for me because I have a 1 1/2 year old and this spares him from having to listen to 12 year olds screaming on chat as well as the possibility of waking up from the game volume haha.

    Many of today's headsets are console specific. I have an old Turtle Beach headset for my Xbox 360. When I got the Xbox One I picked this up too. The Xbox One controller has a larger plug port and if you try to plug in your existing headset the plug's too small. This adapter allows you to plug your smaller headset plug into it and thus, allows you to use your old headsets without having to buy a new one! Not only that, you can now hear the game and chat with your friends. Here's one helpful note that I wish came with this. On the right side, there's a pic of a controller on top and a pic of a person below it. What you'll notice is that as you increase your chat volume to hear your friends, the game volume also goes up and vice versa. To eliminate this, press and hold the button with the person for a few seconds till you hear a beep. What that does is now when you raise the chat volume only that volume will increase. The chat and game volume are now separate from each other. To increase the game volume you just increase it with the button you have on your headset. I wish someone told me this beforehand! Hopefully this will help future buyers out. Microsoft should include instructions with this.

    I had been waiting a long time for this item to become available. I am of the same mind as many others in feeling that this should have been available at launch. That being said, the quality of the product in my opinion is quite poor and should have been a lot better given that it was released several months after the console's release. The device tends to have a lot of static background noise the standard Microsoft headset does not, even when only having chat audio active. Added to that the volume controls are very clumsy and a chore to figure out. I don't know if mine was just missing a manual to explain how the controls worked, or if this was an oversight by Microsoft with the entire product line. Trying to figure out the controls is a good bit of trial and error. I thought originally that you could change the volume of the game/chat audio separately, but that doesn't seem to be the case. If I try to do what I would of assumed would be raising the volume of the game audio, it mutes the chat, and vice versa if I try to do what I had assumed would raise the chat volume. Very odd controls, and perhaps I am not using them right, but without a manual, how could I know that. Very disappointed with the product, if it wasn't the only option available to use 3rd party headsets(since I despise the cheap Microsoft headset) I would return it.

    I have owned gaming headsets that were 300+ dollars for the Xbox one. They were wireless and and had all the high tech features but I thought, "dang these are expensive". After discovering this device, I bought it and a cheaper set of headphones with a mic and I spent a total of $80. They work just as good if not better and I saved well over two thirds of the brand-name wireless headphones. I promptly returned the brand-name headphones that I had and I won't go back. Additionally, I have bought two or three of these as gifts for friends and they love them as well. I completely understand why somebody would want to buy the brand-name headsets but if you are on a budget or just want something to make your gaming experience more fun this is the product you need to start and they work with any set of headphones that you already own. For speaking purposes online You will want to make sure that your headphones have a mic available. feel free to ask me questions about this product. If you don't have a rechargeable battery pack for your controller I would suggest picking up one of those as well because these will run down your AA batteries in your Xbox one controller fairly quick depending on how much you play.

    This piece is necessary in order to use your headphones on an xbox one with chat enabled. you can use wireless headphones without going thru the controller, but you cant chat without it. I hate that because this item works fine at first, but pretty soon, you will start to lose connection to your chat every once in a while and will have to unplug it and plug it back in a couple times to get the chat to work again. I have tried several different headphones/earbuds and also three different controllers and two different Xboxes and it does the same on them all so it has to be this piece that is the problem. One of mine completely stopped working and I just bought another one because this is the only option there is if I want both game sound and chat. The new one works fine, but I had to unplug it and plug it back in yesterday. If there is another option, I don't know about it and I have done research. But when it works, it does what its supposed to.

    Decided I would but this because I really wanted to use the Apple Ear buds instead of Having the huge Ear set that comes with.. What a journey !! at first i bought this adapted... got home.. Found out after hours of google and trying.... that apple makes their Ear buds in a way that will NOT work with this.. you can hear the game.. and people chatting.. But the mic will not work.. went back and Bought the official MicroSoft Ear Phones for 79.99 from best buy.... Took them back the next day... they Sound like how much they cost... might be good for some people.. but really... just didn't have the sound that I wanted.. I work with tech for a living and I know what I'm a listening for... this wasn't it.. Also Microsoft had to release an update that fixed the audio clipping sounds it was making.. after that it works like you would think it works.. I end up buying a pair of sony Ear buds that were made for an Android phone and It worked PERFECT!! So The trick.. is if you plan on using ear buds.. and want the mic to work.. Stay way from the apple ones.. and ones that are "made" for apple

    Xbox One Headset Adapter

    I have a SteelSeries H Wireless headset that was supposed to work with the Xbox One headset adapter. The headset is wireless and can do surround sound. For chat to work, you have to plug the headset into the chat adapter, but after about 2 minutes, the controller stops working. This only occurs with a headset plugged in. This does not happen when there is no headset plugged in, even when the headset adapter is still attached to the controller. The controller has been updated with the "manual controller update." I have not found a way to fix this issue. I have contacted Microsoft and of course they were not able to figure it out. People who have been able to get this adapter to work seem to have issues with static or people on the other end cannot hear them clearly. This is a terrible waste of $25 that seems like it does not work for most people, especially the ones who have expensive headsets which is probably the majority of people that would purchase this product so they can use their expensive headsets instead of buying another worthless product from Microsoft.

    I picked this up when I bought Titanfall and it works very well. Much better than I anticipated and can game late at night and not have the TV volume on. I have a Tritton Trigger Halo 4 headset that I originally had to have wires all over the place to use for the 360 and with this it's one wire that plugs into the adapter and I get game sound and chat audio, I love it. The audio isn't always perfect and occasionally it pops, but it isn't anything I can't live with. 98% of the time it isn't there or I don't notice it. Many people are upset that they can't use certain headsets. It's foolish to expect when you purchase something that it will never once become obsolete. When you bought those headsets they were promised to work with a certain system, nothing beyond that, you HAVE to accept that. I'm not saying you have to be happy about it, but you should accept it. Personally I am very thankful they produced this because it's something they didn't HAVE to do, but it was smart they did.
