It wasn’t more than a couple of weeks ago that I put together an editorial about the state of Xbox One stereo headsets. Well, it looks like Microsoft has listened to the outcry and the required adapter to get aftermarket headsets working on the Xbox One is inbound for $25. Microsoft has declined to specify a date beyond the nebulous “March” timeline they offered up in a post on Xbox Wire today.
Microsoft had long stated that there would be Xbox One Headset Adapters. What was not made clear until today was that alongside the adapter, Microsoft would be releasing their own stereo headset to compete with entry-level competition from Triton and Turtle Beach. The Xbox One Stereo Headset will come with the adapter bundled in for the reasonable price of $80. The Microsoft press release states that the headset is capable of sound in a full-range format of (20Hz – 20kHz).
So, it seems like the wait is nearly over for fans of headset gaming. Do you plan on picking up the adapter or headset? Leave us a comment below.
