    All in the question really.

    Set up is simple, Xbox ONE controller > Stereo Adapter > 3.5mm Splitter > Headset with separate Mic/Audio cables.

    When playing a game I can hear the game's audio and the in-game chat come through perfect on my headset and they can also hear me.

    However when I decide to go Party with a friend he can hear me but I can't hear him?

    When I use the original Xbox One Chat Headset (the crappy little one ear and mic) I can hear him and he can hear me.

    It's not a problem with my headset or wires as I can hear the game audio, chat from players in the game etc. all fine! I just cannot hear party chat? Headset via Adapter: In game Chat & Audio can be heard fine. But I cannot hear party chat, ... :(

    :)

    Headset Mic/Chat Problem?

    Hello All

    I have a problem with my headset mic/chat as cannot hear anything I say via the mic. I am using the xbox one stereo adapter and also a gamecon 388 headset and a startech splitter and everything is setup as it should be.

    I tried party chat and the mic seems to be being heard/picked up via the xbox as the edge around my profile picture lights up every time I say anything, yet I cannot hear my voice at all.

    In games I can hear background music and effects sounds all fine, yet cannot hear myself chat.

    Is their anyway I can get this working correctly?

    cheers

    hi there, My friend had a similar problem and got this fixed pretty quickly. He just went into controller settings and assigned the controller to the correct profile. This instantly fixed the problem for him. Hope this works for you.

    Xbox Stereo Head-set and Adapter, can hear game audio fully and clearly, Chat audio is not working

    Same issue here, turtle beach earforce z11. Game audio is fine for battlefield 4, and geometry wars, but no audio for pinball arcade or xbox dashboard sounds. No chat audio comes through the headset, but party and game chat members can both hear my mic.
    Just wasted $30 on a new adapter and its definitely not that.

    XBOX One Chat Adapter & Turtle Beach Issue

    Actually the chat adapter that they are selling as of today does send both game audio and chat audio. There are even two buttons on the adapter itself that you can use to adjust the game audio vs chat audio percentage. The new Polk headset and the two
    new Turtle Beach X1 headsets get all game and chat audio through the new stereo headset adapter that was released today.

    I imagine that your modified version of the adapter is actually a much better solution for 3rd party headset users, because it was modified off of the chat microphone and adapter that came with the X1. It was designed to just deliver chat audio back and
    forth.

    Now that Microsoft has gone down the road of both game and chat audio coming through the controller and adapter, it has changed the playing field. It is great if you use a headset that doesn't have any other audio signal coming to your headset.

    Also, I did look through the link above. It is where I got the idea to turn game audio to 0% and chat audio to 100% coming through the adapter. Thanks for the idea though.

    XBOX ONE Headset Adapter issue with TB X12s

    Ran into several issues getting my old Turtle Beach PX3s setup with the Xbone via the stereo adapter. It's possible your issue is due to the way the adapter splits the mix between the game audio and the chat audio, which conflicts directly with how the older
    headsets work.

    On the adapter, on the left side, are two icons - the top looks like a controller [this is game audio] and the bottom looks like a person [this is the chat audio]. Clicking on one or the other changes the distribution of game vs. chat in the mix. If you
    click the controller, the mix goes in favor of the game audio. If you click the chat icon, the mix favors the chat levels. Try clicking the chat icon until you hear a beep in your headset - this changes the audio mix coming from your controller to 100% chat
    audio and 0% game audio. [FYI - each click changes the distribution by 25% it seems - 0/100, 25/75, 50/50, 75/25, 100/0].

    You should now hear your friends. Moreover, you can enjoy MUCH better sound quality and perfect control of the game vs. chat volumes using your headsets controls [NOT the xbox stereo adapter].

    I was experiencing all sorts of problems until I worked this out. Unlike our older consoles, the Xbox One sends both game and chat audio to newer headsets via the controller. Back in the day, only chat came from the controller - game audio was delivered
    by connecting to the back of your TV or console.

    I realized my PX3s, on the Xbone, sounded really bad. Game audio was dropping out, skipping, would drastically change in volume, and at times, I couldn't hear the chat audio and had an impossible time trying to balance the mix. The problem is that, when
    I connected the cable to the controller, my headset was receiving two game audio streams [one from the controller and one from the wireless unit connected to my console].

    Once I figured out exactly how the MS adapter worked, I was able to mute the game audio coming from the adapter and boost the chat audio to 100%. Now, I can use the controls on my headset to balance the game vs chat audio.

    The PX3s sound perfect - exactly as they did on my 360. I've also applied this "fix" to a friends' setup using a pair of X42s.

    In conclusion, just hit that little chat icon on the adapter until you hear the beep and you should be fine. Hope that little bit helps.
