Not true surround sound.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Turtle Beach - Ear Force XO Seven Premium Gaming Headset - Xbox One (Video Game)
Well, I'm kinda disappointed my old x41's sound better then these and were truly wireless. The xo7's have no dolby support and you are essentially getting a stereo headset at $150. In my opinion a total waste of money. Plus you are tethered to your controller with a long cord that has to be plugged in for any kind of sound to come out. Yea sorry, not wireless. All in all I regret my purchase and will wait for true dolby digital headsets to make a purchase again.

Can we get some information on the actual headphones here? Everything you posted most of us knew about for months and is all over the message boards - you should have known what you were getting into.

Ya we all knew and you should have known that these are no Dolby Digital and also has a cord!!!
Who spends $160 like you said and not know this???
No headset is capable of the Dolby Surround sound yet ... they are just coming out with the actual itself being able to output DD 5.1 audio.
Don't blame the product and rank it low cause you didn't do your research before purchasing cause everything you stated is well known and stated for this product.
You should base you rating on the product itself and I doubt it deserves a 3 star.
So ya some more info on the actual product would be great.

Hey you sound like you know about these headsets well. Do you know if eventually it will support 5.1 or 7.1 simulated surround sound?

I had the same concerns when I found out about the product being stereo. I talked with Turtle Beach when I found out. They are programmed to have DD, 5.1 or 7.1, I forget which, however, they will be stereo because that is all that the controller passes through. Until they come out with another update for the controller, which they have said that it is on the horizon, they will be stereo. This was Turtle Beaches response when I asked about the DD Surround Sound.
"It is tuned for either surround or stereo audio. For now, the Xbox One will pass stereo audio through the controller. Though the possibility of surround sound at a later date is there: http://bit.ly/1dAsWCX
Xbox One Controller Adapter May Support Surround Sound In Future Update
The Xbox One still has some room to grow with regard to personal audio."

It has been known for quite some time that the headset requires a connection to the Xbox One controller. No other connections are required, and so the headset is wireless to the Xbox One console.
Also, if you want to be able to use a microphone and chat on Xbox One, the Microsoft headset adapter is *required*. You must be wired to the controller in order to chat - this is for any headset you want to use on Xbox One.
