    XBOX One user settings


    Could anyone please tell me if the settings on the console, such as headset volume and accessibility features are meant to be user specific or global?

    I am trying to setup profiles for my family and not everyone has the same requirements, but whatever I do, the settings are applied across the board, even to my own profile.

    For example, children should not be exposed to high headset volumes for extended periods, too late for me, but I cannot seem to be able to set different volumes for each individual. In addition, one user needs to have a mono audio output, but not everyone
    wants this. Unfortunately, it's all or nothing it seems, unless I'm missing something.

    :)

    I have many headsets, most, if not all have integrated volume control.

    What I would like to know is what settings are global and which are user configurable.

    Does anyone know this?

    It would seem odd to have ease of access settings configured globally.

    Thanks

    Hello.

    Your question about the headset.
    If you have an XBOX headset or if you have a compatible Xbox Headset, the compatibility label is always on the product packaging.

    So such devices can be set up in the console after pressing the XBOX button on the gamepad, in the gear panel there is the AUDIO tab, where you will find a quick Headset setup when you have it connected.

    Otherwise, if the Headset is not compatible with the XBOX console, in most cases this setting is missing. Also, the headset may not work properly.

    Sadly you arent missing something. Those sort of settings are console wide as you suspected. I understand your frustration on this. You can make suggestions to the team for future features and I think this is a great candidate. You can do that here: Xbox

    In the case of selecting mono audio in ease of access settings, any user logged in can change the setting on or off and it will affect all users globally. It is the same situation when setting headset volumes.

    Ultimately all users then have to use whatever was the last headset setting by default, unless each user individually resets their preferences every single time they log back into the console, sometimes this is several times a day.

    I stated in my earlier post that you referenced that they are global.

    "Some settings are indeed console wide like the sound settings."
    That's great, but do you know specifically what settings are global or otherwise?
