    Legacy Headsets and Chat Quality?


    So I have the old (pre-2013) Astro A40s. They sound amazing with Dolby turned on. No issues with game sound. My problem is that voice chat sounds like crap in game. People say I sound HORRIBLE. If I skype chat on the X1 with friends they say my voice
    sounds crystal clear. I have seen a lot of people posting about this issue. So my question is if anyone is using a legacy headset that gets great in game chat? I picked up the X04's to try and hold out until I see what Astro/MS/343 are working on, but the
    X04's and having some static/crackling issues when it comes to game audio (it's an adapter issue I think. It seems like all the "Next Gen" headsets are having the same static/crackling issues because of the adapter. I can't seem to get the best of both worlds
    at the moment with great voice chat and game audio.

    I was thinking of ordering the Tritton 720+ and seeing how it does. Is anyone using these? Is voice chat good in game? I assume game audio is going to sound great on anything that is connected using the optical cable. I assume my X04's are having issues
    with game sound because of the chat adapter and not because of the headset itself (this seems to be the general consensus).

    :)

    A mic jack? Seriously?! Lol.

    "So legacy headsets will now work without the adapter?"

    This is, most likely, the reason why Microsoft did the controller revision. It doesn't make the adapter moot but it's good to know that future owners of the console won't need it for their legacy headsets.

    Question about Turtle Beach Earforce X1

    Hey there Ferret Fo Sho!

    Sorry to hear about the mic issues! According to the official
    Turtle Beach Earforce X1
    page, the Xbox One is not listed as a supported console and the product has been discontinued. I would recommend that your friend invests in an Xbox One supported headset so he can hear game audio and chat.

    Hope that helps! Legacy Headsets and Chat Quality? :)

    Headset Adapter and Beats Studio Headset

    Same issue with iPhone headset. Audio works great, in party chat, others here high pitch whistle. While less than desirable, it may be that the adapter is not designed to work with inline mic's. Look at the last item in the list below. "Any 3.5mm stereo
    headset (that uses the CTIA plug standard) can get stereo game audio by plugging into the adapter"

    I hope that the headset can work.

    From XBOX.COM Headset Adapter page:

    For game audio:

    - Legacy gaming headsets get game audio from the back of the console from the S/PDIF port or from your TV/receiver with RCA cables. Get chat audio by connecting the 2.5mm chat cable to the adapter

    - New Xbox One headsets – get chat and stereo directly from the adapter. No need to connect anything to the console

    - Any 3.5mm stereo headset (that uses the CTIA plug standard) can get stereo game audio by plugging into the adapter

    xbox one adapter sucks

    I wonder if anybody that has a legacy headset similar to the Turtle Beach X12s that include a Dolby Digital processor plug in is having the same issues as those who are trying to use Legacy headsets directly to the adapter? It sounds like the firmware update
    is the problem. You would think that MS would test this before releasing to the public. I'm going to get an adapter tomorrow to see if my setup has the same issues.
