    Xbox Wireless Headset sound issues in Microsoft games (PC)


    So this is a known issue, that when you connect via official Xbox dongle, with Xbox Wireless Headset, your sound starts cutting out in games with spatial audio. The problem is MS doesn't allow to turn off that spatial audio in their games, so this results in their games being unplayable with their hardware. What the actual hell? Is there a way to force headset to not use spatial audio (System>Sound doesn't help, because the game still lags like crazy), or force Halo Infinite at least to not use spatial?

    :)

    Chat Headsets

    100% agree. I have a nice sound system for my gaming audio. I want a nice wireless headset for my chat as well. It's a shame Microsoft no longer makes a wireless headset.

    Quick question about the 360 bluetooth wireless headset.

    Yes it is.

    The standard wireless xbox headset sound is better then the standard xbox cable headset sound

    Wireless Headsets on Xbox One

    "I'm keeping the Arctis 7 headset in spite of Xbox One's inability to honor the devices wireless capabilities."

    - The issue is that the headset is not designed to work with the Xbox One.

    - It's up to the hardware/headset manufacturer to make the device compatible with the console

    Compatibility (from their website)

    PC / MAC / Playstation / VR / Mobile

    I get what you're saying but my point is that Microsoft, being the creator of Xbox & Windows (the latter being the preferred OS for gaming), is ultimately responsible for failing to incorporate a broader range of support for wireless headsets in their console.
    The headset has zero problem connecting to my PC wirelessly through the USB unit. I don't think it'd require much effort on Microsoft's part to expand Xbox One's ability to do the same. One could enlighten me though. :)

    You tell me which is more likely; A) Microsoft will buy every company that makes headsets and force them to make headsets based on their products (kinda like what apple did with Beats headsets) or B) Microsoft will provide each specific headset manufacturer
    that wants to make a headset for the Xbox One, the specific to make a wireless communication necessary to communicate for the Xbox One, as Microsoft has already done for numerous headset manufacturers.

    If you want a wireless headset for your Xbox One, you can buy one right now. Just check with the headset manufacturer first. I doubt Sony is going to reach out to Microsoft/Xbox and say "Hey, we'd like to make a headset that works with your Xbox" but it's
    up to Sony to do that. Blaming Xbox for not working with brand "XYZ" headset doesn't seem feasible to me.

    And in regards to PC headsets, well again, its the headset manufacturer that has to make their own drivers for their own headset to work on a PC.

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble with the headset. According to the Turtle Beach page https://www.turtlebeach.com/products/stealth-600-headset-xbox-one?variant=7763423592492 the
    headset can be used with compatible Windows 10 PC's and may need an Xbox wireless adapter for Windows.
