Xbox One Stereo Headset and adapter releasing in March

Posted on February 11, 2014 AT 07:44am

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One Stereo Headset and highly anticipated Stereo Headset Adapter will be available in all territories where the console is sold this March.

The headset is priced at $79.99 and features an over-the-ear design, a unidirectional microphone, and comes with a detachable Stereo Headset Adapter, which “puts all of the audio controls right at your fingertips.  You can balance the game and chat audio levels to hear just what you want, control the master volume, and mute the microphone each with the touch of a button.”

Xbox One owners who already own a compatible pair of stereo headphones will be able to purchase the adapter separately for $25. “Simply plug the adapter into your controller and connect your compatible stereo headset to enable fantastic chat audio,” the company explains. “Add in-game audio by connecting your headset to the back of the Xbox One or to your TV.”
