5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Headset for the Casual Gamer March 7, 2014
Edition:Stereo Headset
I'm a casual gamer and as a casual gamer I didn't need a headset that costs as much as a console and had more buttons than a space shuttle. What I needed was a comfortable headset that was easy to use, had great sound quality, and was affordable. Earlier today I picked up the new Xbox One Stereo Headset and couldn't be happier. 1.) They're incredibly comfortable. 2.) There are only five buttons (volume up, volume down, mute, and two buttons that allow you to balance the volume between the game and chat.) 3.) The sound quality in both the earpieces and microphone is crisp and clear. I was just playing Battlefield 4 and you can easily hear everything and everyone around you. The sound is very well balanced and believable. 4.) For this level of quality, you can't beat $79.99.

If you're someone who games for six hundred hours a week and needs a tuning fork to adjust every audible intricacy of defiling an opponents remains, this headset probably isn't for you. If you're like me and you're looking for an excellent quality product that's easy to use, look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Xbox One Stereo Headset - Full Review March 15, 2014
Edition:Stereo Headset
If you are not interested in reading a long review, the main point which virtually all reviewers seem to agree upon is that the Xbox Stereo headset is a good value due to the unbeatable price. If you are going to buy a new headset for your Xbox One, you will not find a better value.

PRO: The Price is Unbeatable.
The Xbox One Headset Adapter retails for $29.99 (and because the adapter is included in the box) technically you are paying just $50 for the Stereo Headset (or less if you are able to find the Stereo Headset on sale - the Price on Amazon recently dropped from the suggested retail price of $79.99 down to $59.49 which is an even more impressive deal).

PRO: The Xbox Stereo Headset receives both Game Audio & Chat Audio and only uses one cord.
The Xbox Stereo Headset uses one 4ft cord which runs from the right side of the headset & plugs into the bottom of the controller (via the adapter included in the box). The cord is flat exactly like the cord utilized by the headset that comes included with the Xbox One. The flat design is intended to prevent the cord from getting tangled.
Microsoft had previously stated that other headsets would not receive Game Audio while plugged only into the adapter underneath the controller, but this appears to have changed. You should NOT experience any audio issues if you are using other headsets, but the worst case scenario is that you would have one cord plugged into the controller in order to receive chat audio, and a second cable running to your Xbox/TV/Audio Receiver for game audio. If you have a wireless gaming headset - this will not be an issue. You would have one cord plugged into the controller (for chat audio) and the wireless portion will be sending the game audio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleek look, comfortable to wear March 7, 2014
By TNel
Edition:Stereo Headset|Verified Purchase
I have owned 4 sets of Turtle Beaches and one Tritton and decided to try the MS brand for the Xbox One. First glance I love the look of the headphones. Glossy black and matte black. The ear cups are super comfortable fabric and will not make your ears sweat. The top of the headset has a nice thick padding to help with comfort. I wear glasses and I have not had any issues with the cups interfering with them.

The mic fits really nicely into the headband that it's hard to tell that it's there when not in use. The cord for the headset is 4' long from controller to bottom of headphones so it's plenty long enough. Everyone that I play with say the mic volume is the same as it was with the generic ones which is good since one of my friends has the Polks and I can not hear him unless I mute game sounds.

TV sounds do come out the headphones so you can watch tv with these on. I have not used them for watching tv other than testing that so I'm curious on what happens when the controller turns itself off from no use like it normally does when you watch tv or movies. I have had it sitting next to the tv for sometime now and the controller has not turned off so they must have made the controller not go to sleep when the headphones are plugged in and the xbox is on.

After a full weekend I can comment on battery life. I use the Energizer battery station (you can find my review of it) and I am pleased with battery life. I got almost the same amount of time from these as I do with just the stock headset.

I would say the sound quality is on par with my last set of Turtle Beaches and for the money its hard not to recommend them. I plugged them into my Surface Pro tablet and the sound is great and the mic worked perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far I like it, slight room for improvement March 7, 2014
Edition:Stereo Headset|Verified Purchase
Out of the box and set up very quick. You will have to perform a controller update for each controller you will use it on, but the headset does provide a micro USB cable (about 18" long). The update takes 1 minute, maybe 2, per controller.

The adapter is nice and works as it should. Head to that product page for more info. I am not too sure yet on the whole chat/game balance control. You adjust balance between 100% game audio to 100% chat audio. It seems you can't individually set levels which is annoying. But I can often find a fine medium for the volumes.

As a note: Getting game audio through your controller does not stop the audio from your TV, you will need to mute that if you don't want audio out of your TV.

Headset feels nice, sits well on the head, mostly comfortable around the ears, the pads are a fabric material, with the padding being quite firm, the squeezing force on your head feels appropriate, approaching the tight side (for me at least), but it won't fall off of your head. Overall build quality I would give a 4/5, it's all plastic, as most headsets are. It is getting to the heavy side for my personal preference, but not a burden.

The mic is on the left. Just a note, in case you're curious. It sticks out 3-4" from the headset, to the "mid-cheek"area. It folds up into the frame of the headset and sits flush and is held in place with a small magnet so it wont unfold and potentially break.

The cord is about 4' long. Which is beyond plenty for gaming while holding the controller. I can see the length coming in handy if you were to set the controller down on a table for a movie or TV or something.
