After hearing a couple of reports with Xbox One consoles bundled with Xbox 360 headsets Jason Stettner of Gamerheadquarters inquired further into the matter with the local Xbox rep.
how about a wireless headset? the 360 had one..
I miss my wireless headset so much. :(
Me too! We will see something soon I'm guessing (hoping...).
I wish I was as optimistic as you are. I'm thinking if it hasn't happened yet it might not happen at all. Maybe those things never sold that well, I don't know. I just HATE having that wire connected to my controller. I always move around and catch it on something and yank the thing off my head.
I miss those few games that came with a bluetooth headset. Nothing crazy good but it's nice to have. These big games coming out that have collectors editions should probably come up with a headset included.
The Xbox 360 headsets have a smaller 2.5mm jack instead of a 3.5mm jack so they have to be different to fit into the 3.5mm jack. I kno cause i bought a couple cheap 360 headsets to use cause the kids always break them, and u need a jack adapter
Why is this news? Its just a 3.5mm (standard) headset. Even if it is the same as 360, what has changed with mics? Nothing. The actual quality of voice is dictated more by the chat codecs than anything, and these mics do not magically force the x1 to use an old codec. The new controllers are offering a standard 3.5mm plug now (due to popular request).
I put it to the side as a backup in case my turtle beach stops working.
Lol, turtle beach? People still use those?
I wish I was in a position to spend $500 on a headset, but I'm not. So ye, Turtle beach XOFour suits me just fine.
Elitist A-Holes? Those people still exist? Yup, confirmed.
I was jk. Yeah i actually use turtle beaches as well. I have the xo fours. Ive had the after glows, for the $ i think turtle beach are the best. Lol i wouldn't spend $200 on a headset either... well unless i was filthy rich.
I recently got the XO Fours and hacent used them yet... I got the white Kamas.... cheap but theyre pretty good. I hope the XO Fours are good too
My mic just broke now I have to use my Polk 4shots, I really do not enjoy bulky headsets I wish they would come out with a Bluetooth styled mic. These damn cheap wired ones doing nothing but break.
The best headset mic I ever had was my Metal Gear Solid 4 bluetooth on PS3. I wish they would come with those again. The Xbox 360 one was nice too.
I don't see this being a problem at all. In fact I actually like the cheap headset we get with the 360/XB1. It gets the job done for me.
