    Xbox Series X Audio Quits Working


    Xbox Series X audio quits working quite regularly. I have my xbox in instant-on mode and every few days or so after turning it off at night when i turn it back on the next day there is no audio. I have to cycle my xbox (hold button for 10 seconds or so) and then it comes back without adjusting a single thing on my tv. I run 4k 120hz too. Ive lost count how often this has happened. It’s incredibly frustrating and i can’t find anyone talking about it. Any suggestions???

    :)

    Will XBox Series X support external DAC/Amp hardware via USB?

    There are multiple articles stating audio compatibility via USB. If optical is necessary, there are various HDMI to optical devices available which you may need to add.

    https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/09/02/designed-for-xbox-new-look-continuous-compatibility/

    "Some gaming headsets that utilize an optical cable may require a firmware update to support game and chat audio over USB on Xbox Series X. Soundbars and headsets that do not receive updates may be connected
    directly to your televisions optical port."

    So will the series X have an optical out port?

    https://www.windowscentral.com/xbox-series-x-wont-have-spdif-optical-audio-or-ir-blaster

    Nope. Confirmed by windows central series x WILL NOT have an optical port.

    This is pretty damn poor from Microsoft. They have said all accessories for xbox one will work on series x. Wity this port missing this is not true. My £300 astro wireless headset will now no longer connect to the new console. I very much doubt astro could
    update it to work via USB only.

    Pretty disappointed in this at the mo unless they come up with a fix so I still get the same great 3d audio from Dolby atmos and full chat using my a50's.

    Xbox Series X

    Xbox series X will be the next console of the Xbox franchise. Like the jump from Xbox 360 to Xbox one. You will be able to play you're Xbox one games on the Series X and the games coming out will be out on Xbox One as Xbox series X for a limited time.
    After a while they will quit making games for Xbox one and focus on Xbox Siries X

    Trying to get digital assistant to work but screen shows mic is turned off do I need a headset or is there one built in

    Unfortunately, there is no built-in mic on the Xbox Series X and no bluetooth support if you're thinking to go that route.



    You will need to attach a headset with a mic to the Xbox Series X controller. The Xbox Series X controller uses a standard 2.5mm audio connection for Xbox Live, you can use any standard headset. (It does not have to be something fancy or expensive.)



    I hope this helps. Merry Christmas to all!

    Xbox Series X - no dedicated digital sound output

    I'm in a similar situation...

    I use astro a50 gen 2 headset for my audio through optical port, without the optical port on the Series X my £299 astro headset is useless, just had order and spend another £299 for the astro a50 gen 4 to work with the Series X,

    I would have rather have paid an extra £5-£10 more for the Series X console for it to have an optical port than having to pay out £299 for a new headset

    I use a 4K monitor but it has no speakers, so I'm stuck with no audio at all for the Series X until I get my new headset.
