Truly wireless X1 headsets?

My PS4 has the pulse elite wireless headset and it sounds great. Truly wireless with great bass and mids.

why isn't there a truly wireless xbox one headset? Why do they all have to daisy chain to the controller?

not a big deal for games because you'll be using the controller, but for TV / Netflix, I don't want to have to lug around the controller just to watch some movies And not disturb my neighbors in this thin walled apartment.

IIRC The digital out heasaets don't get chat audio? Ie the truly wireless ones that connect via optical port.


whats so hard about making an official TRULY wireless headset? It can be USB based for all I care, I just don't want to be tethetred to a controller.

wires are not "next gen", nor are double A batteries, but that's an entirely different manner. I still prefer Xbox one over Ps4

any news on a truly wireless headse that isn't $200+? One that gets chat audio and game audio, along with volume sliders for both, like the pulse elite?


the more I read about the lack of truly wireless (and affordable) headsets, the lack of 1080p, games for gold being a joke, xbox live costing more than PS Plus and not offering nearly the same value, the more I'm regrettiing my day one edition purchase. I was burned out on shooters years ago and I'd rather browse on my iPhone than play titanfall. It does nothing for me.

about the only thing I prefer on Xbox over PS4 is the controller, UI, some exclusives and software. PS4 game clip sharing is ***. "xbox record that" is amazing , PS4 game sharing is absolute *** and it often has error codes when trying to share. Sony software is pure crap as usual.

but this still doesn't change the fact that there's no truly wireless (affordable, not $250 Astros) headsets for Xbox one. Wires in my lap is not next gen..

Im not an audiophile but I would love a truly wireless x1 headset that may or may not work with chat. I paid $120 for my pulse elite headset for my PS3, and now it works for PS4 flawlessly. One headset for two systems and it's truly wireless, comfortable, and affordable.

surely MS can release something truly wireless, with their billions of dollars.


not a troll thread just disapponted with my X1 as of now. Sub par hardware, overpriced, Kinect doesn't work half the time; I'm not loving it at all. Which is hard for me, since I don't like playstation that much. The software is *** and the controller sucks, especially the triggers. But its undeniable that it's clearly the better (and cheaper) system at this point, even with garbage sony software and servers.

TL;DR, where's my truly wireless headset?

I use the Tritton Kunai Wireless.  You use the amp for netflix/tv wireless.  The only drawback is you have to unplug the power from the amp when you connect your headset to the controller for chat otherwise no chat.  It's a small work around, but nothing else I've heard of so far.

I want to get the steelseries H wireless because it is amazing and I can use it cross platform but if i want chat I have to connect to my controller whereas if i used it on a ps4 it would be truly wireless. And microsoft wonder why the majority like playstation more. I still love xbox but there are certain features which microsoft are stubborn to implement and its letting them down.
