Austin from Twinfinite: A perfect fit for those looking to save some money, the Microsoft Xbox One Stereo Headset is a fantastic piece of audio hardware for an even better value.
Interesting. So if I purchase the stereo adapter, can I connect my pair of open headphones and receive simulated surround sound as well?
Well it has to be connected to the console like Astros and turtle beach
@Gearskin: that's not true. it connects to the controller and the headphones comes with an adapter and with said adapter you can plug any headphones.
The MS headset is only stereo. The simulated surround sound is embedded in the headsets. The 2 Turtle Beach XO headsets offer simulated.
I believe the Xbox One outputs the stimulated surround sound to the controller and then from the controller/adapter to the headphones.
XO control only passes stereo.
*Simulated surround sound.
