Anyone use the Microsoft XB1 Stereo Headset or the newer Tritton XB1 Kama headsets? I know they are just Stereo and not ampified. How is the sound quality if you are use to Turtle Beach x12 Stereo Amplified headsets?( that is what I have on 360)

*ordered an Optical to RCA L/R adapter to go from the Panny Plasma that way I can use my x12 with 360/XB1 and TV viewing. Hope it works!!

Congrats on the A50's!

Sucks to not have the big speakers on full time at full blast but life happens...babies, neighbors, wives, etc. Not in that order exactly...

As A50 owners... you must immediately do the following...

Blast Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon
Followed by...
Dr. Dre The Chronic

It will be shocking how wireless headphones can handle albums like these.
You will hear things that you have never heard before and truly appreciate your purchase.

Gaming will come later.

I've never tried the A50's but heard they weren't too good for music. I'd like to try them out to see if they're good for music as well as gaming.

I picked up these last week and I am impressed. These work great. I never use the chat feature so I plug them into my AVR headphone port and it sounds great. We shal see how long these last before they break.

Question

Is anyone here using a headset not designed specifically for gaming on the One? I need a headset and really don't trust the new gen console headsets. Need my budget to be < $200 (prefer closer to $100) including the mic. Hoping to find a decent headset that's basically plug and play (I'm not an audio expert). If I can get surround sound, solid quality, and chat I'm good. Thanks.

I'm having a hard time configuring the game/chat volumes on myA50's/Xbox One controllers. Anyone w/ the A50's found an optimal way of achieving sound levels?

A50s suck.
They are the Beats of gaming headphones.
That's why most Mixamp owners don't use them.

That's cool. What would be a better wireless alternative in your opinion? Wired is not an option for normal console gaming otherwise I don't think this thread would even exist.

Sent 'em back. I was never able to get the sound/chat balance worked out, UNLIKE my previous two pairs of wireless headsets. I'm pretty tech savvy w/ that type of stuff. If it's taking me that long to figure out(after the 1st two sets were so easy), that's enough said. Have to wait for the new TB's in October...

Just wanted to confirm for anyone else in the same situation.

XB1 HDMI in to TV(Sound set to Stereo Uncompressed)
TV out Optical to Optical Converter to Stereo L/R RCA
to Turtle Beach X12 headset to MS Headset Adapter= Success*

*also still allows me to use with my Xbox 360 as well!

Mine sound just fine. Try this: http://daviddocrogers.com/2014/03/02...with-xbox-one/

EDIT: Just noticed you have returned them. I will leave this up for others wanting to know how to set them up initially.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion...no need to make yours as annoying and childish as possible.

For those wanting wireless, the A50s provide a worthwhile option. They can be had for a reasonable price refurbished, are comfortable, provide simulated surround, and allow for chat. There may be better sounding headphones, but not everyone has the time to buy, try, return, and repeat.

I actually did try those steps, was never able figure out why things seemed weird. Never had any trouble adjusting w/ my X41's or Warheads. Shame, cuz the A50's had phenomenal reviews. No worries, I just pre-ordered the TB 500x Stealth set (late October, bummer). Glad yours worked out for you.

Just a random 2-cents here.

While at PAX Prime this year I was given a pair of Polk Audio's 4-Shots to review. Yep, they've been out awhile, and didn't get incredible buzz when first released. But updates in MS drivers plus a new HD Mic seem to have fixed some complaints. Surprisingly I found them failry "Acoustic". I noticed that when playing Diablo 3 on my Xbox One (using GAEMS unit) that the music was much more "musical" so to speak. I didn't notice the quality nearly as much when using the MS Headset, which I like. People we were playing with online also noticed improved quaility in voice chat wtih me as well.

Just thought I'd chime in here with some quick impressions.

Cheers,

Outtie

I don't have alot of posts since I joined AVS Forums in 2004. I mainly read the information in threads as a source of research material. - quoted from The Outcast in April 2007.

I don`t what you`re talking about.I`ve used my ATH-AD700 and HD595 with the mixamp.The A50 is close to the HD 595.The ATH-AD700 has less bass,but still comparable.I haven't tried the Beats,i`ll have to take your word on that.I`ve used the AD700,and HD595 for years.I know there sound well.
