4.0 out of 5 stars Works well with Triton Headphones., 21 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Official Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter (Xbox One) (Accessory)
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. It could be down the length of lead I am using (8ft extension and 2 ft USB lead) which is causing noise, but I would be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this buzzing when their controller is on charge.

Update: I now have a pair of Triton Headphones, styled for Titanfall. As these have a standard 3.5mm jack that plugs into the amplifier section of the headphone wire, I can use these without the amplifier. Just plug them into the headset adapter and they work great, even with the controller on the charge lead.

I give it 4 stars as it does exactly the job it should for me. It's interesting to find out that the controllers can be easily updated via the Xbox One.

I used to notice a buzzing noise with Turtle Beach's into the old X360 controllers when they were on charge. It's definitely an annoyance but I don't believe it's an issue with this particular adapter per say.

The buzzing noise is caused by the charger, I have 2 brothers who use the charger and it buzzes, but both of them only have the original supplied headset that comes with the Xbox One.

I don't have the buzzing with the original supplied xbox one headset when the controller is connected to USB (on-charge). it only occurs with my X11s.
