XBone won't come with a headset...

I know some of you here think the headset will be included in the box, but just wanted to make you aware that it will not be.

I am sure they plan to use Kinetc for the chat features.

Yeah, Kinect has been touted as being used for chat.

I'm less concerned about the microphone and more concerned about ear phones.  I cant have my late night gaming binges rattling through the house, but     need to hear the nearby enemies.

While TB can't 100% confirm that their current gen headsets will work for the PS4, they think they will.  From what I can tell, the XP500s will work with the PS3/PS4 using Bluetooth, instead of the receiver that plugs into the Xbox 360 controller.  This could make another plus for the PS4 if I don't have to buy a new headset, especially since I love my XP500s and I wouldn't have to buy and learn a new headset.   That would mean that money could go to more games, therefore I could start with like 2-4 games for the same price as the Xbone, a headset, and one game.  Here's the article I came across on TB headsets: 

From techradar.com:

As it stands, Turtle Beach's current headsets will work with the PS4
14th Jun 2013 | 21:01


Another shot at the Xbox One

If you're still on the fence about whether to go for an Xbox One or PS4, a bit of headset news may help you make your decision.

According to Ike Sainoi, a Turtle Beach product manager we spoke with at E3 2013, the company's PS3 headsets should work with the next-gen PS4.

"From what we understand, we do believe that our current headsets will work with the PS4 as it stands," Sainoi said. "Of course, nothing is quite concrete yet, but from what we've heard and the conversations we've had, it should work with the PS4 when it comes out."

He emphasized that compatibility isn't a complete guarantee yet, but it appears the Turtle Beach's PS3 headsets will work with the new console.

We're waiting to hear back from the company if headsets designed for earlier Sony systems will can plug in as well, and will provide an update when we have more information.

Knock against Xbox One

As you've probably heard by now, the Xbox One controller features a proprietary audio jack that's incompatible with Xbox 360 and other current-gen headsets, meaning consumers will need to buy a new pair as manufacturers make them.

Turtle Beach was the first headset maker to announce a pair of headsets specifically designed for Microsoft's console, the Ear Force XO Seven and Ear Force XO Four.
Since then, Polk has introduced the 4 Shot headphones for the console and Microsoft itself has outed its own Xbox One Chat Headset.

Turtle Beach's Xbox One headsets come with an adapter that allows them to connect to the console's controller, Sainoi said.

We've also asked Sony for more info on the PS4's headset compatibility situation, and will let you know what the company says when we hear back.

I was trying to check prices on the three headsets that will be available and so far there's no prices.  I can guess the Polk set will be like $250-300 and the TB ones will probably be around $220-250 for the XO Four and like $280-300 for the XO Seven.  I guessed on the TB prices based on the XP400 and XP Seven prices (360 headsets) on the TB site.   

Here's the link to MS Xbone accessories page that lists the headsets at the bottom:

I would like to guess Turtle Beach would have one in the $100 range and one in the $200 range. Either way, if they don't make an adapter cable it's an expensive upgrade. I really don't know why they will not make a new "puck" for the Xbox one like they have now for the 360 with the bluetooth. You can purchase the PS3 headsets (which are all bluetooth) and buy the puck separately to use on 360. So just make us a new puck, and everyone would pay $50 for it.

Matt, that's how my XP500s work right now and it would be great to get an adapter for the Xbone.  However, I was reading on a couple boards and there were some good points made about rather than make a $50 adapter for their customers, TB, Triton, Astro, etc could only make new sets and "force" their customers to buy whole new sets.  Hopefully that won't be the case and it will just be adapters.  However, even with buying an adapter, that's money that could have been spent on another game.

I have been hoping my headset would work with the PS4 but I would love some official info to back that up. Still might have to buy an adapter either way, PS or Xbox. Official info would be really great.

Sure the could, but then again what is the profit on a $200 headset? If it's $50-$60, and the profit on a $50 adapter is $30-$40, they should be able to calculate the differences in purchases and still have a market for both (or at least that's what I'm keeping my fingers crossed for).

I am just hoping that IF you have to buy a new headset for the Xbox, a fully wireless option will be available sometime before the 8th year of the console cycle. MS really screwed us keeping the chat tech proprietary for so long. The gamers really missed out. Those 7.1 Warheads looked sweet but not $300 sweet 6 months before the launch of a new console sweet..

i was looking on the astro forums for info on 360 headsets working with the xbox one and found they dont have any thing yet and also found this interesting about the PS4 compatability

"Like the Xbox One, our A50 Wireless Headset and A40/A30 Audio Systems will all take advantage of the optical output features on the PS4 to deliver full Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound. However, we're currently uncertain on how the PS4 will deliver voice chat. When we have more clarity on this, we will address this question formally."
