  1. Stereo headset adapter - chat is distorted and crackling


    about this product:

    https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/accessories/stereo-headset-adapter

    I finally got my hand on one as I use the Astro A40's I can hear people fine, but they say theres alot of distortion and crackling when I talk and after I talk also

    Ive read that other people are also having this problem but... in reality is it an update that can fix it? or will MS have to rework/redesign it and release another fully working version?

    Thank you

    :)

  2. Television Audio Through Xbox One Headset

    If you are talking about the Chat headset, that comes with Xbox One, then No. If you are talking about Stereo Headset, with an Stereo Headset Adapter. then Yes. Using the Stereo Headset Adapter give to both Chat and Game sound to the headset. If you TV,
    is connected to the Xbox, your TV sound, will go to the headset.

    Xbox one App

    •Some third-party products come with a stereo headset adapter that may look different from the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter made by Microsoft, but they all function the same way.

    •You can only connect an Xbox 360 Chat Headset using the stereo headset adapter with a 2.5-mm to 3.5-mm converter, which comes with the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter. The Xbox One Stereo Headset does not include this adapter cable.

    Xbox One Adapter Issue

    Hi there SS KaRiZMA,

    Is this an xbox stereo adapter or the default chat headset that comes with the Xbox?

    If its an stereo adapter, please share what mic/headset is being plugged in. Make / Model#.

    Xbox One X - After update my controller dosen't detect any headset I plug in and there is no sound.

    Hi there,

    What is the specific headset you are plugging into the adapter?

    Headset's, headphones, or earbuds with stereo sound will have the ability to have game audio along with chat volume that is adjusted with the adapter or in the "Audio" settings that will only appear when plugging into the 3.5mm port which you have confirmed
    was the issue with the original controller.

    There are some headsets however that do not have stereo sound and are strictly only meant to chat with others, and are usually referred to as chat headsets. These tend to only have one earpiece whereas stereo headsets will have two.

    If you have a stereo headset/headphones plugged into the adapter, then the chat mixer slider that is usually found in the "Audio" settings will be controlled on the adapter with the game controller icon button indicating the game audio volume and the button
    with the icon of a person indicates the chat audio volume.

    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
