Xbox One Headset Compatibility

All headsets that are Xbox 360 compatible require a 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable such as the PS4 Talkback Cable to connect to the Xbox One Controller for chat. If you have an older Xbox One Controller that does not have a 3.5mm headset jack, you will also need to purchase a Headset Audio Controller or Headset Audio Controller Plus.

If your headset does not include a Headset Audio Controller or 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable like the PS4 Talkback Cable, they can be purchased from our web store:

Note: Availability of parts is subject to change at any time.

 

Before you begin, make sure the headset is plugged in correctly.

Click your Headset to see its Xbox One Setup Diagram.

    For connecting the X12 to the XBOX 1, if we have an audio controller, can we use any 3.5 mm cable, or does it have to be the one shown in the picture?

    @Tony

    Sorry for the confusion, your model is older but was succeeded by the X32. It shares the same kind of setup and use. Please follow those details and instructions for your X31.

    @Kimberly

    Does this persist? The Recon 30X is a chat model only, so remember you will not be getting game sound/menu music with this.

    @Daniel

    You will want to use the one picture here. While the 3.5mm connection is standard, the wiring is different for use. You need a cable like ours, which is handling audio and microphone. If you use just a base 3.5mm cable, you may not have microphone use.

    I think I figured it out. When you insert the headphones , don't push it all the way into the controller, let it slide thru and it'll stop , give it like 4 secs, then push it all the way in, works for me every time now, could hear the audio
