Does Xbox One support standard 3.5mm headset

Hi everyone,

I am about to order an Xbox One but I have one question before I make this purchase.

I currently use my PS4 on a PC monitor not on a TV so in order to have sound I use a standard 3.5mm headset that I plug into the controller.

I would like to know if I can do the same for the Xbox One (on the controller or on the console itself) or will I need an adapter or a special cable ? If I do need one could you please let me know which one ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi GeoffBuck.

Currently, there's no official support for third party headsets and adapters for Xbox One. Some existing headsets will work but will have some features missing (typically surround sound and voice chat).

What headset do you have?

I use standard 3.5mm headset. It's the type of headset you use with phones with a 3.5mm jack. No microphone so no voice chat. It's just for the sound. The same jack as little earphones for cellphones. Is it possible to plug these in ?

Is there at least an adapter we can use ?

On the xbox 360 I was using the component cable and an adapter on them to plug in this headset.

Is the Xbox One using the same component cable as the Xbox 360 one ?

the xbox one does not use component cables only hdmi. As far as an adapter goes. I am not sure. There is an adapter coming out for third party headsets like turtle beach and astros. But I am not entirely sure about the headset you are using

Ok thanks for the response. So I guess that, if I want to use my current headset, I will have to use the Optical Output and use an optical to 3.5mm adapter or optical to RCA and then a RCA to 3.5mm adapter.

Thanks for the help PalZer0 and x24hrs2livex
