Exactly what I'm wondering.

Then I can get reacquainted with excellent sound punctuated by episodes of no/deafening volume when I catch the adjuster wheel

I have a set of turtle beaches i bought from game donkeys ago

they have a usb lead and also the phono white and red leads too.

so if i buy this adapter for 20 when its realeased in a couple of weeks i assume all will work ok ??

I remember having to plug the red and white leads into a seperate audio cable that was plugged into the 360 then the usb went into usb port on the 360

is it likely these turtle beaches will work with this new adapter when its released ??

The adapter is to get chat working. I don't know how the red/white phono leads connect to the Xbox One

No mate. The adapter is just for chat. So new xbox remote to 2.5mm jack. If you get one of these, you can use your tos output and plug in any headphones

Thanks John

Great help

Just seems a shame to bin my old turtle beaches when there was bugger all wrong with them . So i could still get the adapter for the chat faciltity and boom we are away.

Hopefully they will make a little wireless one that clips on your ear before long . i liked that on the 360

Yeah. Once the adapters for chat are released, ebay will be flooded with chinese copies too for a few quid I expect.

The link above was the 1st one I found. Digital to analog conversion is simple, so you'll probably be able to get one for cheaper too.

I'm still confused as to what's needed for my X12s to work as they did on the 360. These sound like it's just for chat only ?

You just need the chat adaptor...the phones themselves should already work as before

John if your headset uses the optical out for game audio it will just be the same but the adaptor is needed for game chat but if your headset uses analog you will need an toslink digital to analog adaptor as well

Should still produce 7.1 though, my Astros still give 7.1 through a stereo source, much in the same way as Dolby pro logic II

Depressing isn't it....

I got mine for £60 though, being my 1st set of 7.1's it's no huge deal
