Your voice coming through the other side for other players is muffled/poor quality/quiet. I have Astro A40s so its not my mic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Xbox One Headset Adapter Review! 14 Mar 2014
By MrE TOP 500 REVIEWER
I got mine included with the Official Stereo Headset i purchased a few days ago, buying this separately is incredibly expensive, almost eye watering levels. So to get it included in the same price of the Stereo headset felt like a bargain.

This adapter works by plugging the headphone cable of any headset into the bottom and then plugging the adapter into the bottom of the controller. If you have an older pair of Turtle Beach headphones for example that you want to keep and use then this adapter will enable you to do that without buying a new headset! The adapter feels incredibly well made from strong plastic and the buttons have a good tactile feel to them. There are 5 buttons; two mode buttons for voice chat and Game audio, mute button and then volume up and down. Principally the buttons on the adapter are for use with the Official stereo headset as third party headsets will have their own control switches.

Essentially if you're using a 3rd party headset designed for the Xbox 360 then the adapter is serving as a pass-through device, simply allowing you to use your existing headset.

Verdict: If you don't want to buy a new headset then this will allow your existing headset to work, it's well made and works well with both voice and game audio being crystal clear when i tested out my old turtle beach headset. The only downside is the price!

2.0 out of 5 stars Returned 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Very unpredictable... sometimes it worked, and sometimes it didn't despite updating the firmware and checking the connection

Bizarrely the MS stereo headset works fine

Returned for a refund and Amazon obliged (thus 2-star and not 1)

I opted to wait for this official headset adapter instead of trying out the 3rd party version that have appeared on auction sites.
In the box is the headset adapter. Underneath the cardboard inlay you will find a set of instructions, a short micro USB lead and a 3.5mm to 2.5mm stereo adapter which is about 1)cm in length.

The instruction provided could have been made a bit clearer insofar that they are printed on a small piece of paper in very small writing. You do need to read them to understand how to update your controller's firmware.

Firstly you need to remove the batteries from your controller. Then plug the USB lead into the USB port on the side of the Xbox One and the micros USB end of the lead needs to go into the front of your battery-less controller. Once you have done this the Xbox One will automatically advise you that the controller will be updated. The update doesn't take long and once done you can remove the lead and replace the batteries.

Your controller and adapter are now set up for using your Headset. The 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter lead is needed for the Turtlebeach X11 headset if you are using an original audio lead that came with your headset. It's a nice touch that the adapter has the 3.5mm to 2.5mm lead supplied with it, so plus points for that.

Speech and game volume can be controller from the adapter as well as your inline volume thumbwheels. I have had no problems yet with party chat or game sound when using the controller on it's batteries (I have rechargeable Orb batteries), HOWEVER when I plugged in my controller with a USB lead (for charging), I started to get a buzzing noise, which could be heard by the other party members as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great job 20 Mar 2014
By Maxi
Verified Purchase
The package arrived on time as per release date ,as I had pre-ordered it over a month previous,and of course it arrived in 1st class condition.My son had a great headset which he wasn't able to use with his new Xbox one so from Christmas had been using the basic one that came with the Xbox.So he was delighted when this adapter arrived and he was able to use his good headset again. There's a small speedy set up to carry out the first time you use the adapter and then your good to go.

1.0 out of 5 stars total rubbish 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase
cannot get on with this product, I have a set of turtle beach x11 and it works but by the time you get the levels right for voice you need to turn it right down and resulting in you not bring able to listen to others.

totally given up on this and now use the head set that came with the xbox. will wait till Turtle Beach come out with a set that works.

Works as it's supposed to with my Turtle Beach PX5's but I do get the odd loss of sound every so often hence the 4 star rating and not 5. The April Xbox One update which claims to improve the audio static hasn't really made any impact either from what I can tell through my general headset use so far. At least they are useable again though which is much better than using the original Xbox One headset.
