Best Buy has the stereo headset on sale for 49.99, originally 79.99. Forgive me if this is a re-post.

I take it this isn't PC-compatible, is it?

Just saw this review:

 

 

Looks like it's the headset, chat adapter, and a micro usb cable. Since the headset is a 3.5mm, you can use it on PC. But you'd need a splitter to use both the mic and headphones.

I'm tempted to try again, but the first pair shocked my ears....literally zapped me.  I think I may get a Sony headset so I can use on my PS4 and XBOX ONE since I already have an adapter.  Just waiting for a deal on Pulse Elites or Gold.

I'm pretty sure the deal is running until the 21st. It's part of their 3 day graduation sale.

I wish this came with the 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter.

From:  http://www.twinfinit...headset-review/

 

I attempted using the headset with the PS4 and it actually does have some limited functionality. Audio only comes out of the left side of the headset where the mic is and there is no actual game audio.

 

Not sure how accurate but its something.

UPDATE there is a conflicting report here:

 

http://forums.xbox.c.../t/1708132.aspx

The XBOX ONE Stereo Headset is a great sounding headset, others may look the other way when they find out its not a Virtual 7.1 like the new Sony PULSE Gold Headset for the PS4 and is just Stereo sound, well I own both headsets and I have concluded the XBOX ONE Stereo Headset Audio Quality is superior to the PS4 PULSE Gold Headset and it works great with my PS4 and any device that uses a 3.5mm audio jack.

 

So to summarize:  YMMV but I would lean toward them working.

You would think but its buyer beware.  The chat adapter pins are different than most pin outs.  The official MS adapter is weird.

 

Basically it takes a more standard 3 pin 3.5mm on the adapter which outputs two rows of stereo and a third for mic.  This is done this way so its compatible with regular headsets and things like Beats with inline mic.   However the old 360 headsets were 2.5mm 2 ring one for mono audio and one for mic.   A lot of the adapters do a straight conversion so you end up getting one of the stereo channels fed to your mic which does no one any good.  

 

The whole thing is complicated.  

 

See:  http://www.reddit.co...sort=confidence

 

There is an adapter on that website that he claims works but its sold by a ton of third party vendors and I don't have a whole lot of confidence they are always 100% the same item.   http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B004E9SZP0/

 

It seems risky.  Basically I have an Astro A50 and I would buy this in a heartbeat if it had that adapter and just have the extra phones but instead I think the $25 Official Adapter Packages is the better option for me.  The whole thing is a mess if you ask me but great deal for those looking for a basic set of headphones.

Let us know.  I think it may have been a firmware thing for the person saying they didnt work.  I know PS4 had a lot of headset problems at first and most are now resolved.

This. I'm swimming in AMZ credit but have nothing at BBY. And for something I'd like to have but don't absolutely need, I'm just going to wait and see.

Glad amazon price matched. Got $10 back from my order 2 days ago. Plus I had used a $5 promo from the browser plug in. So it came to $44.99.
