Overall, this product functions as stated, however the price is far more than it should be.
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.Read more ›
I use it to connect my Turtle Beach X12's to my Xbox One controller.
The audio jack from the headphones goes in to the TV headphone jack (in my case the green 3.5mm cable) then the mic cable from the headset goes in to the headset adapter via a cable supplied and voila the headset works on Xbox One!
You will probably need to do a controller update too but there is a cable supplied to do this and as well as being a simple process it only takes a couple of minutes.
Although frustrating to have to purchase it in the first place it does work fine.
There was initially an issue with the audio quality, however the recent April update has improved this greatly, and there is little impact on the controller battery life.
The great thing about this is being able to use any headphones or earphones, which means you no longer need to waste money on proprietary headsets with cables plugging into different devices, everything comes through the controller and you have the ability to adjust the ingame and chat volume separately right there. I even use this now to watch movies or television with.
The main gripe I have is the lack of an equaliser, or at least an optional bass boost if you don't mind draining the power in the controller a little more.
It features a 3.5mm CTIA jack (meaning it has 4 parts to it, so supports both the microphone and audio at the same time). There is a general volume on the right hand side. There is also a chat mixer on the left so that you can make game volume louder and party/game chat quieter, and vice versa.
There is also a mute button in the middle, which glows orange when in effect. This means it will not broadcast what you say. You will still hear everyone else though. You will have to manually use the buttons to mute either/both channels.
This adapter doesn't feature mic monitoring (you can hear yourself speak with stops you from shouting), which at this stage (December 2015) is not a software feature. The Turtlebeach Headset Adapter does feature it, which comes standard with certain headsets such as the XO4 Stealth. Other headsets will come with THIS adapter, without mic monitoring. However, mic monitoring may be a software update in the future.
Very sturdy, designed to fit the controller with a clip on the back which matches the controller (if you wondered what that pivot on the back was).
