Xbox One Audio Port Will be Compatible With Current Headsets

When the news broke about the next generation Xbox Controller not supporting the current headsets for consoles, everyone was unhappy and thought that Microsoft is pulling an Apple-like maneuver. However, the truth is not far from this, as current headsets will not be compatible with the controller out of the box.

Compatibility will be made possible with the help of an adapter that will allow current headsets to work on the Xbox One controller. While the device will not come with the Xbox One console, it will be available for purchase later on.

Don’t trash your current Xbox Headset, as you will use it soon!

The news came as a tweet from Microsoft’s lead planner for Xbox One, Alberto Penello, who stated that:

Yes. We will have an adaptor that allows current gaming headsets to work

While this adapter is in the works, we’ve got confirmation of Microsoft’s plan regarding the audio port for the new wireless controller that will come with the Xbox One from another source that states:

The Wireless Controller has been redesigned to allow for higher data transfer speed between the controller and the console […] This also required creating a new expansion port design for headsets and future controller add-on devices which is different from a standard audio plug input. Xbox plans to develop solutions in the near future to allow consumers to connect many brands of wired gaming headsets to the Wireless Controller for gaming and chat audio
