Xbox One's Headset Adapter Won't Release Until 2014

View author's profile

It looks like you'll be stuck with the chat headset that comes in the box with Xbox One. The headset adapter that allows you to plug in your existing Xbox 360 headset or a new third-party headset for Xbox One, has been delayed until early 2014.

"Turtle Beach expects to launch the XO Four and XO Seven headsets for the Xbox One console in the first quarter of 2014," read a press release from headset manufacturer Turtle Beach. "The Xbox One Headset Adapter, being built by Microsoft and provided to Turtle Beach for inclusion with new gaming headsets, will not be available until early 2014."

Apparently, the headset adapter simply isn't ready yet, but will at least be bundled with Xbox One headsets when it is eventually ready. For now - as already mentioned - you'll have to use the chat headset that comes bundled with your Xbox One.

Real shame, I've gotten so used to using a much better quality headset over the past few years, it's gonna be strange going back to a basic headset for the first few months. But I'd rather wait for something good that works, rather than something straight away that has issues.

@4 And trust the internet to still not understand shipping and taxes. Once converted over and accounting for that, it actually works out more or less correct here. Don't pin that on Microsoft. That's the fault of whatever government your country happens to run by. Also, don't get your hopes up for a Kinect Free bundle since it's so deeply ingrained. Would be like hoping you can get a console without a disc drive just cos it does Downloads as an option.

I like to play my xbox through the early hours of the morning, so I use my turtle beach X41's, which play the game and voice audio through the headset. It also means that anyone else in my household won't have to hear me playing whatever game.

Does this mean that with the Xbox One, i'll have to make do with playing it on a rather low volume if I want to play it late at night, at least until the adapter / xbox one turtle beach headsets are released?

@8 Or if you run it through an amplifier, you could forgo the voice chat and hook some headphones up to that. It's how I do my late night/early hours gaming. Rarely anyone to talk to on my friendslist in those hours, I'm not in any rush to hold a conversation with randoms and normally if I do speak, I wake people up and arguements ensue. :P

@7 : Quite hilarious, son. Seems those markers like "Assembled in Germany" or "Made in China" must be bullshit by your "logic" then, because if that were the case, surely the cost of shipping to the US would be equal or greater than shipping to Europe or Australasia.

Which, therefore, negates that "reason" leaving you with taxes, and oh what a pickle you're in now. Taxes, surprisingly enough, vary, state by state, country by country, and yet PRICES in Regions don't vary a whole deal within any specified region. That is to say, the cost of an Xbone will be the same (within a fistful of dollars) everywhere in North America, likewise, the UK, Europe, Australia and Japan all act like similar, set-priced microcosms. And the key here, most definitely, is Europe. A place with so many different countries, so many different laws on taxes and yet, little to no fluctuation in prices.

So, not only do exchange rates "not add up", their "justifications" seem to be based on the hope that most people are too damn lazy to actually look into it.

And, of course, we have the variation in digital content prices, which, as we all know, incur HUGE shipping costs and taxes. £50 for Diablo III on demand, yet it was only £40 at most retailers on release with it being £30 - £40 currently.

But, you know, I guess we should all be as rich as you, money growing on trees as it does. Obviously, stark pricing discrepancies are merely a figment of our over-active, idling imaginations and we should just "get with it" and "stop bitching", right?

if your headset is wired (like you have to plug it in to the console itself), I am sure you could still use the headset for volume, we just won't be able to use our headsets for a mic until the new adapter is released.

I'm using the tritton x720s, so I really hope this is the case haha.

In the article it goes on to say the PS4 won't recognize headsets until the system gets an update. Keep up on your news if you want to troll. It's the same deal but worse for the PS4.

This is not the best news, but it's good to know an adapter is coming.

There are two alternatives for voice chat until the adapter is released:

1) Use the bundled Headset for Chat and your TV/Stereo for Game Sound. The bundled headset is supposed to sound much better than the 360 one.

2) Use Kinect for Chat (Mic), and either TV /Stereo or your existing headset via Optical Out for Game Sound and Chat.

I'll be going with the second one for now as my Astro A50's sound so much better than anything else I own.

Oh great. I've ordered a set of TB XO Sevens which I thought were coming out on release day! If they've been delayed until 2014 I'll cancel them and just use my X41's with the adaptor in 2014 instead. What a joke. :( Honestly starting to wonder why I bothered preordering my Xbox One on day one, games and now peripherals getting delayed until 2014, is the console itself even going to be ready at this rate? I bloody hope so... :/

Im not saying its a bad headset because its not at all. I have the xp seven and its the same thing as the xo seven. Mine stopped working after 2-3 months. The wire thats on the left side does not unplug and after awhile the wire I guess took a shit in that spot. When I wiggle it around I still hear sound pop in and out but oh well. And I spent 280$ for that thing. using astro a40s right now with no problems at all!. Those polk audio headset look nice too

another thing guys. if you guys/girls have real nice headsets like I do, you could do what the pros do. use both headsets, one for chat and one for sound. it might sound silly and stupid but it works really well and most of the time you don't even know your wearing 2.

In America prices advertised are not what you pay. The VAT is not included in their advertised prices.
As far as I am aware everywhere else that sells the console advertise their price with the cost.
So in the UK it's advertised at £429 so we go and we will pay that much.

Where as in the US they will go and have to pay whatever tax is into of the price advertised.
It still ends up cheaper but not significantly.

I bought a VITA in is cause it was advertised almost £70 cheaper from uk at the time only to be charged $60 more for my bundle sill making a saving of approx £25 at the time but not he £70 I expected.

That's fine by me. I don't want a half assed adapter that will break. As long as it's fairly early into 2014 like Jan or Feb. I can see it costing like £20 though :/. It's better than buying a new headset though.

@34. I used to have a turtle beach set where the wire ran from the headset to just the controller. They were great, never an issue....we'll until they died. Bought a new set that is completely wireless....and they're the biggest piece of shit I've ever spent 200$ on. Constantly have to sync them, the mute button is on the bottom of the adapter on the controller so if you rest it on your lap you mute yourself. I'd prefer the older one I had before. It was great.

what i dont get is why isnt everyone pissed that you need a special headset at all, with everything people have insulted ms for over the last 6 months or so does no body realize that the headsets in general are a massive rip off.

the new consoles both run on X86 and both have internet capabilities so access to drivers etc isnt an issue... why cant we just use a normal bloody headset or mic and headphones with it?

@53 - Because the "new" controller doesn't have a jack like the old controllers. PS4, on the other hand, will allow you to use an older headset with drivers that will be coming after launch. According to M$, they want to provide a "new and improved" experience for users. Again, they aren't listening to consumers, they're trying to shove new stuff down our throats. Same with the Kinect.

The only reason I'm getting an Xbone is for the Day 1 controller. Stupid reason, I know but that's the way it goes. The more I read about the PS4, the more I think Sony is really doing it right. Unfortunately, they don't have Forza or Project Spark.

As long as the usb provides headset audio, I don't really care if I can't talk to others.

both new consoles use x86 as their architecture, same as pretty much all pcs now so why doesnt this just have a standard mic jack to let me plug my normal mic into like every other bit of equipment i own has

@55 - “The Wireless Controller has been redesigned to allow for higher data transfer speed between the controller and the console. This also required creating a new expansion port design for headsets and future controller add-on devices which is different from a standard audio plug input. Xbox plans to develop solutions in the near future to allow consumers to connect many brands of wired gaming headsets to the Wireless Controller for gaming and chat audio.”

I still have a few mice laying around that use a DB-9 connector for x86 computers. Since computers don't have a DB-9 serial port anymore, I have to use a DB-9 to PS/2 or to USB adapter to use them. However, I just spent about $79 on a new mouse. A MOUSE for crying out loud! :)

@57 again though all that really says is "we have a better jack than the non-standard one we have on the 360 so we're making another non standard jack" and it still isn't a good excuse really.

Its not just ms i hate this from either its all consoles and some other devices that are self contained, they always use their own special ports for things and they never make any sense from any stand point than they want to sell you non-standard products so you have to buy from them, even when the adapter comes out most people will by things from them for these ports.

on the other part im not sure why thats there, thats not pc manufacturers making a port so they can sell their own hard ware or anything lie that, we don't use db-9 or ps/2 anymore because its terrible compared to what we have now. that's not a problem, technology does get better and things change yeah but its the thing where certain companies still feel its ok to make something completely different for compatability reasons that annoys me

So basically ... They are doing it on purpose?

I realise they want the new headsets to be purchased and not old ones being used... But give the players a choice, don't just fuck them over.

Also, doesn't Xbox one run off Bluetooth style connections? .. So you can use any cheap Bluetooth headset.. There fore buy £5 Bluetooth headset over the £30 standard official wired Xbox one headset ... Problem solved and Microsoft doesn't get your money!

@58 - That's what I'm trying to tell you. You cannot get the audio fidelity that M$ wants the Xbone to deliver using a standard 3.5mm jack. Therefore, they are using a better quality/higher transfer port. Much the same way the PS/2 and DB-9 were inferior on the PC front. Its not just consoles, its PC's as well. Every time I ever bought a new graphics card, they changed up the architecture because they made improvements. Same with the Xbone. They've made improvements, therefore, there will be changes.

And to reiterate, I have an expensive headset that I will not be able to use. Do I like it? No. I'm just explaining M$'s take on things. You can get all up in arms about them changing shit so that old shit don't work no more, but it doesn't matter to them, they're completely out of touch with the consumer at this point.

@58 yeah i get what your saying but its not really a counterpoint to what im talking about.

Even if that was true which it really isnt then they still could have just used USB3 which is standardized and the best quality thing available at the moment for digital peripherals. There would still be no reason for them to invent their own tat was incompatible with the industry standards

@Damascus THQ : We're paying £425 on release afaik, so it's only £24 ($36) more according to your conversions. Assuming that's true, Europe will be paying about £440 - £470 and Australia will be £500+ (£500 = $750).

I had a thread about regional pricing policy in the X360A Forums about the ME3 Limited Edition back before it was released. It was abundantly clear that the US was getting a ridiculously good deal whilst the whole rest of the world was getting shafted to varying degrees.

The japanese don't pull this huge pricing disparity bullshit, but M$ have really gotten away with murder in this gen with their huge North American install base. No wonder they're not so popular elsewhere in the world, and after the problems with the Xbone's announcement and original policies, they've successfully seeded enough distrust to notably damage their business for the foreseeable future. The damage is like a reverse earthquake though, with the least amount of damage done in the US, and it progressively increasing the further away from NA you get.
