Just a heads up to anyone looking at the Polk 4 shot headset. Polk recently sent out a boom mic to everyone who registered there product as a temporary fix for the mic volume levels. I received mine a couple of days ago and the mic volume is fine now. Of course, now I have a boom mic in front of my face which is what I was trying to avoid with the Polk headset.

Hopefully they get the firmware updated soon.

I just got mine, but have already returned the set. I guess I can sell the chat pro now...

saw this on reddit and thought it might help some people:

Credit goes to /u/mkmkd for this one. I was having issues chatting through my included mic with the xbox, as well as my A40s through the adapter, but the Kinect was picking up everything. After going "home" and clicking on my profile and rebinding myself to the controller, I was able to chat through both headsets.

To add details this has to with the fact that the kinect don't know to which controller send mic data(if any) if it doesn't see it or recognize it.

Select "choose this player" this rebinds the controller!

I wonder if that was what was happening to me the other night when I was playing TF with some friends. I could not chat with them but I could hear them just fine. Switched from the adapter to the bundled headset and still no go mad.gif

I figured my player was already 'chosen' since I was in a multiplayer match and in a party. I'll go back & see if I can find the reddit thread for help on how this works. I choose my player again after already choosing the player to 'rebind' the controller if I'm having issues???

I'm guessing the fact that I have the Kinect 'cover' on that came with the PDP mount is contributing to my chat issues?

@onlysublime, can you give me a link to that reddit article? I know I'm having the same issue because I don't use kinect to sign-in and I lose chat when either 1) The Xbox controller powers off and I have to turn it on again or 2) I have to switch controllers. The issue happens whether I'm using the chat adapter with the Astro mixamp or the bundled Xbox One headset.

I'm not clear on how to rebind my profile to the controller. I've tried signing in-out. "choose this player" multiple times. Last night it happened after I switched controllers and I had to hard rest the console to get chat back :/

posted this on the xbox one console forum to no response, but maybe this was the more appropriate thread.

Xbox Headset Issues.....

1. my controller dies while I'm playing online multiplayer

2. grab another charged controller and replug the xbox headset into the new controller

3. no sound in or out of the headset This has happened to me every time. The only way I have figured out how to solve the issue is to reboot the console. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, figured out a solution other than restarting?

Thanks

when you guys game with your headphones (if applicable for the game) do you usually change the audio setting to the headphones setting or should it be set to speakers/home theatre...etc. if wanting the virtual 5.1?

Try it both ways. If the game's "headphone" setting ASSUMES your using a 5.1 surround headset, give it a go vs. the home surround/cinema setting. But what if you're using a stereo headset? Not all games make it clear. That's why I always alternate between the 2 modes to see which processes the dynamic better.

No worries. I did find a way to fix the issues with chat though, I completely turned off Kinect in the settings.

That may not be the best workaround...and I do actually like some of the Kinect features, but it works 100% of the time until MS works out the bugs with a logged in user and headset chat on XB1.

Any news on when the Xbone will be updating the controller to create virtual surround? I just pulled out my dusty TB X41's and did the update. Man, stereo's a major drop down compared my Warhead 7.1 set. I know they were going for "good stereo" vs "bad surround", but sheesh. I'd take the virtual surround of either my TB's or Trittons any day

I recently decided to give some of the random true 5.1/Optical devices that are available with some PC true 5.1 headsets after I saw the Sewell SoundBox
that had an optical input and output. I figured it might work on the PS4/XBone, but unfortunately it did not.

It worked great with my PC using both ROCCAT 5.1 headset and the CM Storm Serious S 5.1 headset. From what I can tell, the Sewell SoundBox uses the USB on the PC as an external sound card, so on consoles, just using the optical cable won't get sound. I thought maybe I could use it hooked up to my PC and mix the optical input from the consoles, but that was a big fail.

So I returned the SoundBox and ordered Panlong 5.1 Audio Gear Digital Sound Decoder
It arrived and I hooked it up to both the PS4 and XBone and both worked, but only worked with the CM Storm Serious S 5.1 headset. The ROCCAT will only work with a PC, as it needed to install drivers for it to work with my PC, so I took that headset out of the running for testing and just stuck with the CM Storm.

I started up a game and watched the title screen, and right away noticed objects coming from the left, the sound was coming from the right! I thought maybe I had the headset on backwards, but no, I didn't, then I thought I had the 3.5mm plugs in the wrong ports, so I moved them around, but still anything visually coming from left or right, the sound would come from the opposite direction.

So I sent that back, and ordered a different one, but from a different vendor, RioRand,

It basically is the same exact thing, came in the same style box and all of the same accessories. Only difference was that it did not have "RioRand" printed on it, where the Panlong version had it's logo on the device. Plugged everything in and %$! same issue as the other, sound not coming from the right speakers, everything reversed.

This was looking to be an experiment that wasn't going to work, using true 5.1 PC headsets on consoles, other than ones specifically made for consoles.

I sent that back and googled around for other options, when I found this one on ebay:
Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

It looked different, but has the same overall idea.
Only took 1 week to arrive from China, and once I got it, I hooked it up, and wasn't expecting anything other than the same results as the other two 5.1 converters, but this one actually worked! Objects from the right came their sound came from the right, things behind me came from behind! I was surprised this one worked, and am happy with the sound queues I've heard so far.

I've not been able to test this with the mic yet, but I don't think I'll have any issues as it will plug directly into the headset adapter for the XBone. Not sure what to do yet on the PS4 for the mic, but think I'll figure something out. I need to test in more games, I was just using Titanfall last night to test the latest one out.

I know there is plenty of debate on true 5.1 vs virtual 5.1 for many reasons, but I like to try things out and see how it all sounds.

I'll update as I test this out with the CM Storm and the 5.1 converter.

My main headset is the Audio-Technica ADG1 with the MixAmp 5.8 and love how they sound together. I wanted to try out some true 5.1 headsets for comparison, so I'll keep the CM Storm headset and see how it works with other games.

Nice post. If the 7.1 completely wireless model gets decent reviews I'm on it.

Same here and I came in here to ask about the Sony surround sound set that is supposed to be compatible with the Xbox One also with an adapter. I love my TB's so that is something to look forward to.

wireless chat mod

I apologize if this has been discussed, but I recently found and purchased a bluetooth xbox one mod adapter. The guy basically took the original headset adaptor and a Turtle Beach XBA bluetooth adaptor and soldered the 2 together. The user reviews have been nothing short of fantastic for his work. It allows wireless chat using most bluetooth headsets including cellular and Turtle Beach xp400, xp500, and p510 gaming headsets. At this point I was willing to try anything to get rid of that wire connecting to my controller.
