Hi! I need to thank the forum for directing me to buying the HD558s as I was going to buy some trash gamer headset. Anyways, I was wondering how I am supposed to hook my clip on mic up to the Xbox One with the Mixamp. My only assumption was with a splitter, so that is all I am working with at the moment. My mic should get here tomorrow, so I am trying to take care of this and get anything so I can hop right in. I have only watched a game clip that was recorded before I had the headphones and it's amazing. I drop-shotted this guy who snuck up behind me point blank and I could clearly hear him coming. I just hate playing team games with my friends without communication. I searched before asking this question just so you know. Thanks for any help,
HD558 w/ Mixamp on Xbox One
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
I am not sure to be honest because I think I read that xbox ones can't do usb sound, but I am not sure the course is credible. And I am not sure if something has to plug into the controller either. I am not the best with electronics, so this is a little over my head. I was planning on running my clip mic to a splittler which goes to the mixamp and the controller, but a lot of the splitters I am seeing have a slot for a mic and one for a headset plus am I sure if it matters which way the sound (current) is traveling in the wire. So I made the realization this morning to get one of those splittlers w/ a mic and a headset jack and then just plug that into the mixamp where my headphones are plug into currently. Then run a wire from the mixamp to my controller. I am only seeing videos on how to set up A40's with mixamp and they only have one wire for the mic and headset so I am really hoping that will work.
