    How to play game audio through headset?


    I bought a headset with mic and plugged it in to a newer controller just fine. However I can't hear the game audio, which is a problem because the headset covers both ears. I went through all the menus but I can't find a simple option that simply lets
    me play the game audio through a headset. Is it even possible??

    :)

    How to play game audio through headset?

    When you plug a headset into a controller, the game audio and any chat you do is automatically goes through the headset speakers. Check the audio settings on the guide to make sure they are not low. press the Xbox button on the controller, move all the
    way to cog icon, and select the audio option, from there you should be able to see the volume and mixer options for the headset.

    I found this and thought it could possibly help you.
    "Open up your Xbox Dashboard and go into the ‘Settings’ menu. From here, you’re going to want to select ‘Display and Sound’ and then find the ‘Volume’ option. This will open up several settings which allow you to channel game audio through your
    headset, speakers or both. It’s worth noting that you can also choose where your chat audio comes through as well, under the same menus. This should allow you to adjust the game volume through your Xbox One headset." From: Twinfinite

    How to play game audio through headset?

    Yes it's possible to play game audio through certain headsets, I can through my Turtle Beach headsets. I know this may be a silly question but are there volume dials on your headset it's self? That's how mine are so I can control the game volume and voice
    volume separately.
