Just wanted to say that I tried the official Xbox One Stereo headset, for a bedroom set-up (TV + Gaming), intended to not disturb the Victoria Secret model of the month reading War & Peace beside me, but it just wasn't loud enough to drown out all of the non gaming related questions.


Great quality headset, but it just didn't work for me. Back to the drawing board, got that set for only $50 (includes the $20+ chat adapter). Oh well...

Well now that you have the adapter just about any 360 headset from Turtle Beach will work and the amplified ones are plenty loud.

not loud enough, i am shocked at that statement, that headset gets incredibly loud. definitely dont get the polk 4 shots then because they are much quieter than the ms stereo headset.

Does anyone on here have SkullCandy PLYR2 wireless headset using it with the Microsoft xbox one adapter? I picked up two Xbox ones for gifts and my son has that headset for the 360 right now. I went to the SkullCandy website and it does not list it as Xbox one comparable.

Thank you

I have a question for stealth 500x owners. Do the headphones need to be updated out of the box to work correctly?

I'm asking because I have a Mac so it'll be a while before I can borrow a pc to handle the firmware updates.

Thanks

The Stealth 500X requires a Day One software update for optimal performance when connected to the Xbox One. Please visit TurtleBeach.com/Stealth500X to obtain the latest software version.

I'm a Mac user as well, and while I like all the features of the set, and the generally positive reviews, I'm not going with Turtle Beach since Mac isn't supported. I don't feel like jumping through hoops to get a $300 pair of headsets to work.

I think I'm going to try the Astro A50s first, as I can get them (and return them, if needed) at my local Best Buy. If they don't wow me, I'll try the SteelSeries H Wireless.

Astro supports Mac but I doubt you will need to update anything as the last firmware released was back in April.
