I have always heard that aftermarket headsets would work great for listening on an Xbox One but would have problems with chat until an adapter was made. That is not close to being true as there is no surround sound using the optical out port from Xbox One. I have tried all my Turtle Beach and can get no sound at all unless the xbox one is set to stereo only.
So they abandon Surround Sound and 3D. That just sounds wrong.
Then just to hear TV in some sort of surround sound through stereo is some sort of Beta type thing that was added on last minute.
People that can spend a thousand dollars on a gaming console including a few games and controllers probably have nice surround sound systems and or headphones. People with multiple Xbox ones in house really need headphones to work. Its like they forgot who they were selling to.
