    Xbox One Elite Controller Headphone Jack Audio Quality


    Hello there! I was wondering if the Elite controller had some sort of an improvement over the standard Xbox One controller headphone jack as in audio quality, if basically the sound was any better?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    :)

    There is also the option to connect your headphones via Bluetooth.

    I hope this answers your question.
    I have the Elite controller, and you can NOT connect your headphones via Bluetooth.

    Also, the Elite controller has the same 3.5mm audio jack as the other controllers. As the sound is transmitted to the controller digitally, and then turned into an analogue signal, you won't hear a difference.

    You'll get the most audio improvements by choosing "Windows Sonic" as an audio format for your headphones, or if you're willing to pay money for the Dolby Atmos for Headphones app, you can also activate Dolby Atmos for your headphones.

    But the overall sound quality is mostly dependent on the speakers built into your headphones than the actual audio jack in the controller.

    Also to "defend" the headphone jack:

    I use a Plantronics RIG 400HX headset. It has a volume slider and mute switch in it's cable, so you can adjust the volume and mute the microphone with the flick of a switch.

    And since Plantronics is known for making professional headsets that are used in callcenters and other professional environments, the Plantronics headset is also comfortable to wear for extended periods.

    Was audio quality something you were looking for? I would say investing in a nice set of headphones is better than getting an elite controller.

    The overall performance of the Elite is better than the normal controller while it lasts. The problem is, it won't last long. The quality of the parts and the quality of the manufacturing is worse. I would say the headphone jack is exactly the same.

    I avoid using the Xbox One controller headphone jack because I prefer having physical buttons to mute and adjust volume. If you don't spending a little bit of extra cash, I'd recommend picking up the Xbox One Stereo Headset adaptor or the Turtle Beach
    Headset Audio Controller Plus. Both plug into the bottom of your controller, offer great sound quality and have physical buttons for muting your mic, and adjusting individual volumes for game audio and chat audio.

    Hello DavidSage3,

    The Elite controller is in many ways a better than the standard controller, but from my experience the headphone jack is the same as inside the standard controller.

    There is also the option to connect your headphones via Bluetooth.

    I hope this answers your question.
