The Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter is now available today. This will allow your headset's from your 360 to now work on your Xbox One for chat (no longer requiring the use of kinect as a mic). But expect extremely high demand for these for a while. SO GET YOURS FAST!

http://www.bestbuy.c...d=1219013503686

Best buy still has them in pretty much every store for in store pick up from what I can tell for the MSRP of $24.99.
Gamestop has it as well (for a markup of a further $5, bringing it to $29.99...)
www.gamestop.com/xbox-one/accessories/xbox-one-stereo-headset-adapter/113825 (Copy and paste)

However they have it available for shipping while BB seem's to be sold out.
If you are looking to get it, place an order now, you can always cancel or return it but don't hesitate.

 

Both BB and Amazon are sold out for shipping, which is a sign of low availability across the board. So while MSRP at BB it is still a deal, as you can expect these to sell out for at least the first batch.

Thanks for this!  I had completely forgotten that it was coming out today.  Was able to order one from my local best buy with pickup and had 15 dollars of reward zone certs to use!

 

Many Thanks!

As far as I know, Amazon just never got them. Same with the media remote. They mention delays and were hoping to start shipping around today.

I am going to Best Buy today to pick this up. I really wish EDF 2025 was carried in stores, then I would pair it with this and get a quick 15% off.

I ordered mine from Amazon, so yes, they got them. You had to preorder it pretty early (Feb 12-14) and after that they have been unavailable ever since.

Posted 07 March 2014 - 03:22 PM

So... what are some popular headsets that will work with these? I'm just looking to hook up a headset directly to the controller without having anything go into the TV/receiver. Any recommendations?

Unless these play game audio they're unless. I converted mine a long time ago, they only played voice. I'll have to check again, maybe the update took care of it.

I received mine from Amazon yesterday -- they pass both game and voice.  They also work with TV/Netflix, pretty much all X1 output so far as I can tell.  I use them with some astro a40s -- sound seems good, although the bass doesn't seem as punchy as my mixamp.

Make sure to look at xbox.com and look for info on the headset adapter...not all headsets will work. None of my Trittons or Turtle Beach headsets work. I think it's fail that they don't put that info on the box, instead you have to go to the xbox website to figure it out.

From a review on Best Buy's website:

 

"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."

That's the reason why I just ordered a set of these. I am surprised that Microsoft didn't make their own HDMI cables that require us to get an adapter for our TV :D. But on a serious note, Microsoft isn't blind and quickly realized that there are many people out there that prefer professional headsets over the Standard Microsoft once. This is just another way for them to increase their revenues for this gen-console.

I'm going to assume this will work with the new Sony Gold Headset, since it uses a 3.5mm audio cable for Vita & "Mobile Devices." Can anyone confirm? WORLDS COLIDE

Thinking I might get sony gold headset for $85 with discount since I can use that wirelessly on PC as well and use the cord to use the adapter on xbox. Game from PC from couch too via headset. Guy above me, I read on neogaf someone has used sony gold and works. Sorry don't have link. I believe it will since this adapter is ctia standard and sony uses that on their ps4 controller. But I would love a real confirmation here. I will go ahead and buy assuming it works.

I don't see anything about specific headset compatibility on the Xbox.com page for the adapter but it does say this:

 

"Any 3.5mm stereo headset (that uses the CTIA plug standard) can get stereo game audio by plugging into the adapter"

 

I'm thinking your Tritton and Turtle Beach headsets get audio from the Xbox 360 console via SPDIF. It's nice that they actually seemed to follow a standard for this adapter. Most phone headsets should work. See here for more information. Hopefully we get some reports back from people testing this out.

I'll try it tonight and let you know. This would be amazing if it works.

Alrighty got the sony golds for $85 and just put in some bunk 360 game for 2.40 for shipping. I don't want any games out right now and since preorders don't work I'll just take the $2.40 loss on the game for a total $12.50 in savings haha. I will try to order mgs on Tuesday with adapter and hope the 15% still works since I didn't see an end date on promo. Killer that would be awesome. Let us know, please test the mic out as well, thanks!
