The Xbox One Headset Adapter will let you use your favorite gaming headset

Xbox One Adapter

There are two aspects which can greatly affect your experience when playing on console, and that would be sight and sound. Not being able to hear what’s going on around you in game can put you at a disadvantage, and not having a big enough screen can make it hard to see what’s going on. You can normally save up and fix your TV screen size issue, but what if you already have the perfect headset, and can’t use it due to compatibility issues?

If you prefer to play games on the Xbox One, then this Headset Adapter might come in handy. This will take just about any headset that plugs into a 3.5mm jack. You can get chat audio by connecting the 2.5mm chat cable to the adapter, and your hands don’t even need to leave the controller to adjust your volume settings. The controls have up/down, mute, and a game/chat mixer.

Seeing that this only costs $25, I’d certainly say it’s worth the investment if this is your main mode of gaming. If nothing else, it can at least be ruled out that not being able to hear what’s going on around you as a factor that may affect one’s ability to play. It may add a bit more weight to the controller which could feel a bit weird, but as always, any change takes a little time to adapt to.
