Edition: Headset Adapter
  • An Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter is already included with new stereo headsets designed for Xbox One. Just plug the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter that came with your headset into your controller and then connect the headset.
  • Most stereo gaming headsets with a 3.5mm audio jack (that use the CTIA plug standard) can get chat and stereo game audio directly through the Xbox One
  • No need to connect anything to the console or TV/ receiver. A microphone is required for chat.
  • Legacy stereo gaming headsets for Xbox 360 can get game audio by connecting the legacy stereo headset to the back of the Xbox One console using the S/PDIF port, or to the TV/receiver with RCA cables ( just like on Xbox 360). Get chat audio by connecting the 2.5mm chat cable from your legacy stereo gaming headset to the adapter, using the included audio jack adapter cable. A microphone is required for chat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Adapter - Functionality Explained: March 7, 2014
By Saucin
Edition:Headset Adapter|Verified Purchase
NOTE: EDITED STEPS UNDER FUNCTION 1 - ADDED STEPS 6 & 7 to resolve common issues.

I purchased this product to allow me to use my Turtle Beach DX12 microphone for in-game chat (instead of the Kinect mic). It works flawlessly. But for those of you out there considering purchasing this product you should know it basically serves TWO purposes, and based on what you're using it for depends on how the volume control buttons on the Stereo Headset Adapter will work.

FUNCTION 1: Using the adapter to allow your old gaming headset that had OPTICAL AUDIO inputs (Turtle Beaches, Astros, etc) to work with the Xbox One the same way it did with the Xbox 360 (you plug the 2.5mm "chat audio cord" into the Stereo Headset Adapter so your 3rd party headset's microphone works and you can hear and control chat volume via you're 3rd party headset and/or the buttons on the adapter).

When using the adapter this way, in order to get the functionality that you're looking for (using the 3rd party headset's microphone for chat while getting game audio ONLY from the optical out of the Xbox One) you will need to do the following:

1) Turn your system on
2) Update the controller
3) Connect the 2.5mm cord from your 3rd party headset to the adapter
4) Push the bottom left button on the adapter (looks like a person with a "+" sign on their body) until you hear a beep - This will set the volume output ratios coming from the Adapter to 0% Game Volume & 100% Chat. *NOTE*: If you don't have them set this way you will here a slight "Echo" in game because the adapter will output game volume as well as chat volume, and you don't need any game volume from the adapter since you're getting it from the Optical Output from the Xbox One.

Edition:Headset Adapter
I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The typically-trusty Amazon was sold out of this thing before it was even released (along with almost every other store in the city) and as a college student "ballin' on a budget" so-to-speak, I wasn't thrilled at the prospect of shelling out $80-$160 for a headset...especially with Titanfall right around the corner. As a result, I resorted to going to the Microsoft store where I picked up the second-to-last adapter for $25 and it was truly worth it.
I'm not sure if Microsoft and its associated headset partners (e.g. Polk & Turtle Beach) don't want you to know this due to profitability interests, but....IT WORKS WITH A LARGE VARIETY OF *REGULAR/ NON-GAMING* HEADPHONES! I play games casually when I find the time and I'm not big on chatting when I do so. The main purpose of purchasing this for myself was to be able to play a game or watch tv (via Xbox One) in my room when I settle down late at night without my girlfriend complaining about the volume, thus obligating me to lower it.
I was overwhelmingly excited to discover that the this adapter allows me to hear game and chat audio with my JLabs earbuds, MiiKey On-Ear headphones and Sharper Image Over-Ear headphones! As I said, I'm not big on game-chat, so I haven't tried for myself; but I've seen videos that indicate I will be able to use the mic on my $9 earbuds to communicate should I ever decide to do so. Apparently the adapter doesn't work with Apple-made earbuds, but it seems to work flawlessly with most other 3.5mm headphones (with or without a mic).
Overall, I'm thrilled with my purchase and I hope this has been informative as there seems to be a lack of disclosure on the topic of using regular headphones with the adapter :)

By J. Sims
Edition:Headset Adapter
I purchased one of these last week from a local retailer, as supplies were very limited everywhere. I was mostly curious about what it could actually do, as TB and MS hinted that this was the killer accessory for third-party headphone integration, but no one was explicit about what it was capable of. So, after playing with it for a week, I can tell you a couple things:
1) IT is sold and marketed as an adapter for the 2.5mm chat cable used by most aftermarket gaming headsets to support chat. The device actually contains a 2.5mm-3.5mm adapter for that purpose. You can plug this into your XB1 controller and plug your old headphones' chat cable in to support voice communication on the XB1. You can also use your existing 2.5mm headset.
2)It requires that your controller's firmware be updated through a simple process using a MicroUSB cable (included) Plug it in, plug something into it, and a prompt will appear to walk you through the process. Very easy, takes about 1-2 minutes per controller.
3)It DOES support game audio on certain non-gaming headphones. From what I can tell, it works on CTIA-compliant mobile-device-compatible headphones. Those are usually the ones with an inline mic, designed for cellphones, etc. I use my Turtle Beach M5Ti and they are perfect. Cable length is just right, mic for chat and game audio for everything else.
4)Audio is being pushed over the same communication channel as the controller and chat, and I have seen a couple times where audio stutters, drops out, and then the controller disconnects and reconnects, so I'm unsure as to whether it is an interference or battery issue.

I played a couple hours of Titanfall and watched some video. With the TV muted. Through the headphones plugged into the controller. Definitely recommend.

UPDATE: Was able to use regular stereo headphones for game audio with no issues. So... best accessory ever.
