xbox-one-headet-adapter

Microsoft will not release its previously-announced Xbox One Headset Adapter until ‘very early 2014’, and this adapter will certainly be needed to make use of brand-new third-party headsets – not just old ones.

The system holder has claimed formerly that the adapter will enable using current-gen headsets on the brand-new console, which uses a new port that’s incompatible with Xbox 360 headsets.

However confusion developed today when a press release from licensed headset producer Turtle Beach claimed that the company’s brand-new third-party Xbox One headsets, the XO 4 and XO 7, will not release up until Q1 2014 due to the lack of an adapter.

“Turtle Beach expects to launch the XO FOUR and XO SEVEN headsets for the Xbox One console in the first quarter of 2014,” stated the release to the press. “The Xbox One Headset Adapter, being constructed by Microsoft and supplied to Tutle Beach for inclusion with new gaming headsets, will not be offered until early 2014,” it went on to describe.

Turtle Beach corporate interactions rep David Lowey confirmed that the Microsoft-produced adapter will undoubtedly be required to utilize its brand-new Xbox One headsets, and that this adapter will certainly be featured in the box with stated headsets.

This seems an uncommon approach, given that it would have been anticipated that brand-new headsets made specifically for Xbox One would merely plug straight into the Xbox One operator’s proprietary information port.

This does, however, show up to offer Microsoft complete control over the manufacturing of third-party headsets for Xbox One.

Microsoft is yet to verify specifics on the adapter, such as release or pricing.

Like Xbox 360, the new Xbox One will certainly deliver with a fundamental chat-only headset featured in the box.

Lowey likewise verified that numerous Turtle Beach headsets – and, we anticipate, headset from various other brands – will certainly support PS4 at launch, although some models will certainly require a firmware upgrade to work with the brand-new console.
