I managed to figure out how to get a set of headphones working with the Xbox One with game audio and voice chat using this guide as a core.

 

Here is what you need: (What I used)

 

Headphones (ATH-W11r)

Surround Processor (Turtle Beach DSS)

Mic (Modmic 2.3)

Optical Cable

PC Headset 2 female 3.5mm to mobile phone male 3.5mm adapter

female 3.5mm to 2 male 3.5mm adapter

Xbox Chat Adapter

1/4 to 3.5mm adapter (if necessary)

 

So it gets a bit complicated, but here goes:

 

Headphones to 1/4 to 3.5mm adapter

 

3.5 mm adapter to female 3.5mm to 2 male 3.5mm adapter

 

One male end of the 2 male 3.5mm adapter goes to the DSS

The other male end goes to the headphone female 3.5mm of the PC Headset adapter 

 

DSS goes to Xbox one via optical cable

PC Headset adapter goes to Xbox One controller via Xbox Chat Adapter

 

Modmic goes to mic female 3.5mm of the PC Headset adapter.

 

Essentially you're setting it up like a legacy headset for xbox one. It was crazy figuring out all the adapters, but I did it and it worked very well for Titanfall. 

 

I hope these directions help someone who wants to implement this guide for an Xbox One.

 

Feel free to PM if you have any questions or want to know what adapters I used. 


Thank you very much for this post!!! Finally got my setup to work!!!

Ugh.  I can't find any of the clip-on mics mentioned in the guide being sold domestically.  Does anyone have a recommendation for a clip-on that's not terrible and still inexpensive (like less than $10)?  I have a V-Moda Boompro, but I can't use it really with my Q701, only the X1.  I'd rather not get the Modmic because I want to be able to resell the Q's at some point.

I am selling my X1s for 190 USD shipped... Just putting it out here if anyone is interested... There's a classified for it.

Do you think that using balanced armature speakers will be more competitive for gaming because they are very sensitive to depicting minuscule sounds emitted.

Just as a heads up to everyone here. Some people on slickdeals are having luck with their local Best Buy stores price matching Astro A40 Wired Set from the Microsoft Store. Seems pretty YMMV, but you might get lucky and can score a new Mixamp with cables for ~$70. You can always sell off the A40.

The cans are here. First impressions of the L2 are promising. They don't require an amp to push nice volumes, which is awesome, but running through my E12 with crossfeed enabled and bass boost on... I don't often hear Alive by Krewella sound this big and fun. Elecrto House definitely sounds bigger on these than my M-80s. Going to be a fun time testing with these puppies.

How's that soundstage? The L2 is semi-open, isn't it?

And... pictures, please!

Thanks!
I got turned off by the BF3 community, so I picked CoD again because it's just something simpler to pick up and play. Plus, you know, Mad plays it. I didn't realize you stuck with BF.

Haven't listened to that album in a while.  Threw it on and listened ton one song and decided I needed more pep.  I threw on some Hiromi's Sonicbloom for a more modern take on the genre.  I need to whip up a good reference playlist for testing...

Sadly, my priorities are still preparing for the move. I only got about an hour with the L2 today before the wife kidnapped me from home and we ran around getting things we still need like boxes and such. Blah.

I would say Change is Good is enjoying his new K612s smily_headphones1.gif

Chico was enjoying some Beyer T1s and almost immediately was talking about next steps, but I think what his focus has been was building a computer. That can easily lead to a warren of distractions of it's own wink.gif

Small question: whether exists "Virtual Surround Devices" with digital input (PS3) and digital output (DAC) ? Or bluetooth transmitter with surround support? I need something like that.
