    headphones need addressed

    [quote user="SAFLEYDAD"]Ya, then think about having to put a wireless chat dongle on top of an Xbox Adapter Dongle then hang it all on the bottom of the controller that XBOX brags about being so cool looking.[/quote]Is there a reason you think Turtle Beach
    won't come up with a wireless dongle that plugs directly into the Xbox One controller in the same manner their existing dongles work with the 360 controller?
    Seems to be working fine for those using the headset that comes with the Xbox One.

    You are aware that by and large headsets used with the 360 rely on cabling that runs from the base of the controller to the headset, correct?

    doubt about accessory

    Hi

    When Guitar Hero first came out on Xbox One Activision made a dongle available that allowed some of the Xbox 360 Guitar Hero instruments to be used with the Xbox One version of the game. If you carry out an internet search for Xbox One Guitar Hero dongle
    you should be able to find more information on this

    How Do I Connect A Wireless Xbox One Controller To Windows 10?

    Hi,

    That wireless gaming receiver only works with 360 controllers, not Xbox One controllers. The Xbox one controller uses a different wireless protocol.

    If you have Bluetooth for your PC you can pair the controller and use wireless this way. If you don't, you can buy any BT 4.0 USB dongle and connect using that. The dongles cost no more that $8.

    Or you can buy the official Xbox One wireless receiver for Xbox One controllers.
    Ahh, that explains it, thank you very much. Unfortunately I don't have Bluetooth inbuilt in my PC, but I can definitely buy a dongle. Does it need to be specifically a BT 4.0 dongle?

    Xbox Dongle

    I recently bought an Xbox One after years of playing on the Xbox 360. I currently have one Xbox One controller, but I have multiple Xbox 360 controllers. I was curious if I would be able to buy a Xbox Dongle and connect my Xbox 360 controllers to
    them and use them to play straight on the Xbox One. I've seen videos to where I can connect wired controllers to a Windows 10 laptop and play that way, but just buying the dongle would be less of a hassle with the cords all around.
    To have a xbox 360 controller work on the xbox one you would have to use a 3rd part dongle. There is no licensed Microsoft product that would allow a 360 controller to work on the xbox one.

    Xbox One controller random disconnect

    Do you have the Dongle for the controller? Usually, they suggest getting the USB dongle( Xbox one direct) instead of the basic connect.

    XBox One Controller on PC

    Hi guys,

    I was able to sync my xbox one controller to my Windows 10 PC via Bluetooth, however when I go to turn it on now to play a game on PC, it powers on my XBox. Any way around this or do I need to have a separate controller for each platform?
    You would either need a seperate controller for the PC not synced to the xbox, or just live with the pairing. If you pair your controller with the USB wireless dongle it would force the pair to the dongle instead of the console. But then you would be require
    to re-pair the controller to the console when you wanted to use it there as well.
