    I pre-ordered mine from the Microsoft online store, and it shipped! I'm quite excited to use my Nokia Purity HD headphones, because I don't like the headset that came in the box as much.

    How about you guys?

    I might pick one up at my local Microsoft Store this weekend. Been waiting for Microsoft to update the Xbox One for Dolby support for Optical so i can use my Tritton 720+ headset, but it doesn't seem to happening in the near future.

    Can't you use an optical to digital adapter?

    I should clarify. Audio still works on on my headset using optical but it's stereo, not surround (or in my case, virtual surround using Dolby technology).

    An optical to digital adapter wouldn't work though would it? Where would I plug it in?

    Isn't there a digital audio input right next to the optical audio input?

    BTW - have you tried going into the Troubleshooting menu of the TV/OneGuide screen under the settings menu and ticked 'Surround Sound Beta' to possibly rectify your situation Dos101?

    No there's two HDMI connections and between them the optical connection http://cdn3.sbnation.com/uploads/cho...nema_960.0.jpg

    Hmm, I do recall having issues back in December with the surround beta, but maybe it's worth trying it again to see of the update fixed it for me. Thanks for the reminder :)

    Yeah, the surround sound beta is still... well in beta... My issue is that for TV surround sound it only works if I completely shut down the xbox each time I turn it off. If it is in standby mode the TV app hangs (everything else works perfectly outside of the TV app though). So, we watch a lot of tv and using those back speakers is important to me, so I turned on 'power saving' mode... boo. Hopefully the new update coming out in the next week or so solves that issue...

    Just double checked and you should be able to get game audio through it Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter | Xbox Canada - Xbox.com


    • Any 3.5mm stereo headset (that uses the CTIA plug standard) can get stereo game audio by plugging into the adapter

    And if the person only wants to chat, he can do that too. :)

    Exactly, it's a nice solution to eliminate running wires everywhere.

    Does this adapter allow for the game volume to be transmitted through the headsets and therefore allow you to mute the tv while playing? I didn't think it dod, but a friend pointed out the game volume controls. So, I have to ask if it is possible. If so, I am going to get before Titanfall is out to spare the wife.

    Yes it does, for all 3.5mm headsets, nothing else required. For the 2.5mm headsets, it is chat audio only. If you want game audio on the 2.5mm headsets though, you need to do some stuff (i'll post it here if you need info on that).

    But you can always have it chat only, or game audio only, or both. It's up to you. :)

    Got my headset. I'll report back on how it is later when the kids go to bed.

    Update: I got to play with it a little- I'll post my impressions in a new thread about the headphones.

    For chat audio, it will work with the adapter. If you also want gameplay audio, check this out for more info.
