Microsoft is apparently working on an adapter which will make some Xbox 360 headsets compatible with the Xbox One controller, according to the Xbox Support Twitter account.
When asked if existing headsets would work with the new Xbox One controller the support team replied:
@craigfellows We are working to develop an adapter for current wired headsets to connect. More details as we approach launch. ^PS

Earlier this week Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox One would not ship with its official headset in the box, with the company stating that the Kinect will act as a bundled headset.
“Each Xbox One includes the new Kinect sensor,” said Microsoft, “with a highly sensitive multi-array microphones designed to enable voice inputs and chat as a system-level capability, both in-game and with Skype and other experiences.”
