  1. Using a headset with my Elite controller disables entire controller


    Pretty much what it says in the title. If I try and use a headset or even earbuds with my Elite controller, it still shows power going to it, but it stops accepting input from buttons after a second or two. I'm using the same headset I've used for a while,
    and it still works with my PC. Because of this, I officially get no game audio at all.

    I think I've put this question in the right place, but I'm not sure.

    :)

    Hi Lazarus,

    Sometimes that 5-10 second search for update resyncs everything.

    I will go ahead and lock this thread as it has been resolved. Please feel free to come back to the forums if you have any other issues, questions, or just want to create a discussion to talk to fellow gamers.







    Thanks,

    Brad

    Hey there Lazarus,



    Thanks for reaching out here in Xbox Forums. I understand there is an issue with connecting a headset to the Xbox One Elite controller.



    I recommend taking a look at the following troubleshooting articles:




    If the problem persists:

    • Try your Headset with another device, such as a laptop, to see if the headset is working.
    • Try using a Headset Adapter for compatibility issues.
    • Try your Headset on another controller, if you can. If the headset works on the second controller, try
      updating the first controlleragain. If that fails, the controller will
      need to be replaced. To order a replacement, go to the Xbox Online Service Center.

    If the issue persists, I recommend to contact Customer Support for further assistance or visit the
    Device service and Repair
    site.

    Try this out and let us know the results.

    It said it didn't have an update, but I got to the update screen, plugged the headset into it, and then hit Update before the controls locked. It did a little update and now it's working fine. Thank you for suggesting I not listen to the "no update available"
    lol.

    Wired versus Wireless Controllers/Headsets

    I use my white elite controller the most. All of my controllers are wireless, but I prefer a wired headset.
